Tips for Repeat Bar Takers

  • Put the past behind you!  Don't dwell on your missed attempt.

  • Change!  Alter your study method!  Don't use the same technique which didn't work in the past.

  • Identity what went wrong.  Look at your scores.  What do you need to improve?

  • Seek help!  Utilize the resources at Santa Clara Law.  Find a private tutor.

  • Use a bar exam prep course that demands active learning!  Not just sitting and reading.
