The easiest way to generate more points on the California Bar Examination is on the Performance Test. Why? PTs are worth two essays, so finding one more issue on a PT generates more points than if you spotted one more issue on an essay… or even up to seven MBE questions. The Calweasel PT Class provides you with simple tools to navigate the scavenger hunt that is the Performance Test on the California Bar Examination. Former Bar/Bri Performance Advantage Professor (15 seasons) Steven Harris provides you with the three building blocks you need to succeed on the PT. First, the theory – an introductory lecture that gives you a clear, realistic roadmap of how to finish and excel on PTs… even if you can’t find the issues by minute 90. Second, the struggle – you take a PT at the end of the first class, triage where you’re strong and where you need help… and receive the most feedback in the industry, all directly from Professor Harris. Third, the follow-up – a one-of-a-kind lecture during the second class where we walk through the entire library, identify how to read 1/3 of what you probably read, and keep things simple and generate points.
There’s more! Let’s face our demons and overcome them. Professor Harris will provide his notes from his real-time simulation of the hardest PT from the last exam. He will walk you through the process of the inventory of the Library and show you what he wrote down in his notes and explain why he wrote what he did. Then he will do the same with the File. And then, to answer students’ age-old question about “how to put it all together,” Professor Harris will show you how to outline the question and identify the 5-7 issues necessary to answer the question.
Don’t have a plan you trust to do generate points on the PTs? Can’t get through the library fast enough? Having problems “putting it all together”? Professor Harris has the answers you need.
Oh yeah, one more thing: if you’re having problems putting it all together on the essays, Professor Harris will provide an extra 30 minutes of instruction on how to improve your issue-spotting on essay exams. And at the last session, he will provide you with a study plan to “put it all together” during crunch time when you need help the most.
Nineteen seasons of experience providing clear, simple answers on the Performance Test. If you are looking to supplement your foundation Bar Review class, or Professor Adachi’s Essay Class, with further help on the Performance Test, the Calweasel Performance Test Class is the place for you.
Finally, for the DISTANCE STUDENTS! Welcome to the class! Students from LA, San Diego, Nevada, and even New York have taken the class and passed it! You can too! And of course, since the program is recorded, you can view it whenever you wish. To fit any bar prep schedule.
Let's generate some points!
NOTE: the class runs on 6/8, 6/22, 7/6, and 7/13. The end date of the course is listed as 7/30 to accommodate online students who sign up after the date of the last class.
