Zen is a way of life—and so is studying for the bar exam. The Zen of Passing the Bar Exam offers a comprehensive approach to studying for (and passing) the bar exam, drawing a parallel between how one should approach the bar exam, and how Zen principles teach one to approach life. Each section of the book offers a Zen quote to introduce concepts that can be applied to studying for the bar exam in order to maximize your chances of passing. Zen teaches that in order to reach enlightenment, one must strive to be balanced, know your true self, know your universe, and stay focused on your path. Similarly, in order to reach the “enlightenment” of passing the bar exam, one must have the attributes of balance (between studying and other aspects of life, as well as balancing your study time between subjects, and between essays, MBE questions, etc.), knowing your true self (what type of essay writer you are, what type of learner you are, what type of exam taker you are, etc.), knowing your universe (knowing the law, how the questions are constructed, what to look for, etc.), and staying focused on your path (when to study, what to do when you are stressed/panicked, what to do when you don't know a subject very well, etc.). In addition to offering a comprehensive approach to studying for the bar exam, the book also offers specific, practical advice for doing well on both the essay and MBE portions of the bar exam. The book outlines specific organizational/formatting tips for how to write effective (and efficient) essays under bar exam time constraints. The book is ideal for adoption for any law school bar preparation course (or Academic Support Program), providing many exercises, examples, and model answers applicable to any state's bar exam.

Law recited herein is intended for use on the California Bar Exam and may not be appropriate for use as a practicing attorney.** About Our Book: If you are carrying around a huge commercial bar review book and are unsure what information you actually need to learn, you are not alone. Most companies cram every possible piece of information into their outlines regardless of whether it is actually tested. Such information overload causes problems during the exam. Our book is comprised of "Comprehensive Outlines," "Primer Outlines," and "Issue Spotters." The "Comprehensive Outlines" are designed to be studied from until the last three weeks before the bar. Needless to say, they are comprehensive and explain the law in the way it should be written on the bar exam. The "Primer Outlines" are concise and are designed to make the most efficient use of your study time during the final weeks before the bar exam. They are structured to form an active approach that you can work through to make sure you hit all of the issues and maximize points. The "Issue Spotters" are short, one page checklists that are designed to be memorized prior to taking the bar exam. Exam takers use these checklists to make sure no issue goes uncovered.
