The Goat's Guide
The Complete Step-by-Step Guide to Preparing for the California Bar Exam On Your Own
Today I took the attorney's oath in a notary's office in Oakland. Yaaaayyy! And your book was SUPER helpful and I would recommend it to anyone. And I do actually recommend it to people whenever I get the chance. I was way better prepared for the CA bar exam after using your method than I was for the Illinois July 2010 bar exam after Bar-bri (even though Illinois was way easier). - Sarah K.
I just wanted to say thank you! I passed the July 2012 Bar exam the first time and could not have done it without your website. It was my first time taking it and your study schedule really helped me out. - Vanessa W.
After reading your book several times, and going through stages 1 and 2 for practice, I have come to the conclusion the strategy you lay out in your book is going to push me over the top. (pass the bar). - Martin H.
I recently decided to self-study for the Colorado bar exam and came across your blog online. I immediately purchased your book from Amazon. I cannot tell you how helpful it is to me. - Eric S.
I was really impressed with the book. It seemed original and well thought out. - Former CA bar grader
On a personal note, it is so refreshing to hear from someone who has put thought into passing the bar exam without spending a small fortune on commercial prep courses and who understands the bar exam from my perspective. Thanks for making your experience a resource to the rest of us. - Dalisai N.
Love your book. I purchased the book and am using it dilgently to prep. for Feb. - Eliz C.
I think someone should pay no less than $100 for this e-book. I paid that much for flash cards - which provide the substance. And study strategy, which is what your book provides, is no less (if not more) important. - Recent law school grad
You have excellent suggestions & ideas! This book will help a lot of people. - CA Attorney
I love your Be a Goat guide. I just started using it and intend to pass the July 2013 CA bar exam! Your method makes so much sense. - Sarah K
I just finished reading your book. It looks like you've got a winner on your hands. I agree with everything in it, and could think of nothing to add that would increase it's value or usefulness to the reader. I think you did an excellent job of covering each of the different parts of the exam and your methodology feels very solid. - Brian J.
I think your book fills an important niche in this Holy Grail thing they call 'Passing the California Bar Exam!' - Molly S.
Just wanted to send you a short note that I think your book is great. Congrats on slaying the dragon. You should do what you can to market it because I think it is essential reading-- especially for the repeater. I have heard practice practice practice but no suggestions on how to practice beside a certain number a day or a week. Practice means nothing unless you are indeed learning the skill correctly. Your suggestion helps build the skill or so I am sure banking on it that it does. Your book explains the advantage of practice and a method to the practice that is doable and simple. - Stefanie C.
As long as you take money away from barbri, I wish you well :) - Former Barbri student
Reading your book gave me a detailed structure, a good plan and hope!!! Thank you for sharing the good news, the knowledge and for being so organized and insightful.
If you've faced the bar exam before and need a new approach - a study plan that WORKS - this is what you are looking for.
This study guide was written & developed by a repeater who learned the hard way what works and what doesn't. There is nothing extraneous in this program - it's everything you need to pass, and nothing more.
Don't believe that you are destined to fail again. This program has worked for others and it can work for you, too. Trust the system, do the work, and you will be prepared.
Part Time Studier?
Busy with life? Job? Kids? Other responsibilities or commitments taking up your precious study time?
Don't worry, you can still succeed! Many people have faced similar challenges and still passed the bar after studying part time. The key is to study smart by being effective with your time, and making sure you design a workable schedule that will keep everything in balance.
This program was designed by a part time studier, and there are strategies specifically for part timers. You will go step by step through a process of figuring out how many hours per week you can (and should) study, when to start preparing, and how to spend your study time. You CAN do it all, and pass the bar too!
Prep Courses & Tutors too $$ ?
Have you checked tutor and prep course prices lately? Crazy, right?! If you can't afford to pay a small fortune, or prefer to spend your money elsewhere, this is the right option for you.
Luckily, you don't HAVE to pay thousands of dollars to get ready for the bar exam. Paying a lot isn't what gets your name on the pass list, and being economical about bar prep doesn't mean you will be disadvantaged on the exam.
The book includes a full cost breakdown of what materials will cost, how you can get them cheaper (or even for free), and how to recoup some costs after you're done. All told, you can do a comprehensive bar prep for hundreds less than it costs to register for the bar exam!
