5.0 out of 5 stars THIS is the book to use 10 Mar 2006
By A. Dunning - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently used this book to prepare for New York's bar exam essays. This book gives you a viable succinct format for writing bar exam essays. I took the BarBri workshop and this book was far more useful. It has many practice questions and essays (includes most states). For those of us who do not have the luxury of time to spend in endless workshops, this book allows you to learn the methodology at your own pace, and practice, practice, practice. Definitely worth every penny of the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas - not geared for CA law 19 July 2008
By Jill D - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good product, and gave good insights into how to write bar essays. It is not specifically geared to CA, which is fine if you aren't in CA. I learned some techniques and strategies that I have applied and improved my essays. It does not provide a lot of samples that I found helpful, but the instruction part is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaches how to structure an answer. 15 Oct 2008
By P. Graves - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I took BarBri and PMBR. However, neither taught a SYSTEM for writing essay responses. So, I searched for a system and found this book. After practicing the author's "Under Here Therefor" method, and her question-outlining method, I felt much more prepared.

I just passed Nevada's bar exam...one of the more difficult exams. I used the system. I credit this book for making the exam manageable.

Spend the fifty bucks now, and avoid failing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bar Candidates: This book & CD is a MUST HAVE! 15 May 2007
By Barzam Product Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Dr. Gallagher uses a "unique" style to help us understand where our writing is going astray. The Bar Examiners can be your friends, if you practice writing like a lawyer. Her method is made easy to understand, unlike other techniques which must be read and practiced without any support. Her CD gives helpful advice in general and helps you through the writing process.

If you can afford to spend thousands of dollars on additional Bar Prep, consider an alternative. Otherwise, try Dr. Gallagher's techniques and you WILL become a better legal thinker and writer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not helpful. 2 Jun 2006
By Sadly Multiple Exam Taker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be incredibly unhelpful. The author does not offer good strategies for approaching the exam, and includes essays from a range of jurisdictions, which can be confusing at worst and just unhelpful at best. i thought the Adachi books were much better.
