Step-By-Step Substantive Approaches
Professor Shari Karney’s philosophy: Why re-invent the wheel? The Bar Exam is a standardized test and the Bar Graders are looking for standardized answers. Our Approach Book (Bar Bible”) is designed to give you the materials the way you need to write it on the actual Bar Exam, step-by-step. Study smarter! We give you an approach for every substantive area of the law.
We give you the headnotes and sub headnotes that you are going to use on the actual exam. We show you what issues you need to write for heavily tested areas. We give you easy to memorize and write rule statements and show you how to apply them. This maximizes your issue spotting and you will find that your answers practically write themselves. Our outlines and materials are user-friendly, with the right amount of law, but not so much, that you can’t memorize anything.
California Bar Results NEWS: The California Supreme Court has decided that the cut score for passing the California Bar exam is to stay at 1440 — for now. “Passing the California Bar Exam still remains one of the nation’s most difficult.” The CA Bar Exam graders will continue using the same criteria.

We show you how to take each question so you finish on time with a high score. We teach you how to eliminate the three incorrect answer choices. This fixes the problem of MBE takers who are able to narrow the answer choices down to two, but struggle picking the correct choice.
After watching the BarWinners MBE Workshop videos many of our students show a 20 to 30-question raw score improvement (even on Real Property and Evidence MBE questions).
Because of the new California Bar changes that began July, 2017 (www.calbar.ca.gov/Admissions/Examinations/California-Bar-Examination/Changes-to-Bar-Exam) the multiple choice section(MBE) is now worth 50% of your entire bar score.
Therefore, improving your MBE score on the CA Bar is more important now than ever before.
