CA Bar Exam: PERFORMANCE TEST

The Performance Test porton of the California Bar Exam generally prove difficult for examinees on several levels: time management, reading comprehension and analysis, and rendering a final writing submission that reflects both clarity of thought and expression. Managing the enormous amount of information provided and distilling all those facts and laws down to a concise solution to the problem posed is no light task - how you do it impacts everything.

My tutorials on the Performance Test are based on a methodoly that is surprisingly simple, yet rarely used. I've conducted workshops at UC Davis and Hastings on the Performance Test and how to best approach this portion of the Bar Exam. The heart of my approach: keep it simple.
It works.
