Approsheets

Step-by-step blueprints, study schedules, cheat sheets, guides, and other tools designed to help you orient yourself and propel you toward improvement

 

“Big box” prep courses tell you WHAT to study, but they don’t teach you HOW to prepare for the bar. Why give a person with a full-time job and a family the exact same study schedule as a person with no other responsibilities?

 

You’re the dean of your own studies, not anyone else. You don’t have to follow “The Plan.” No matter what you use, bar prep at its core is still a self-learning endeavor. Let me show you how.

You’ll discover how to…
  • Gain clarity of the preparation process by taking stock of your situation up front, so all you have left is to “do the work” (see Sample Study Schedules, Systematic Study Blueprint, Weekly Action Plan)
  • Find the right tools to supplement your studies (see Supplement Shopping List, Appendix I)
  • Virtually guarantee that you identify the relevant issues to rack up points (without randomly “spotting” issues) (see Section 5)
  • Take advantage of this potent-but-often-overlooked part of studying… and why practice alone is not enough (see Shortnotes pages 23-27)
  • 2x (or even 3x) your essay practice efficiency without sacrificing the learning so you’re not overwhelmed by the sheer amount of practice (see Section 5)
  • Balance review and practice so you know when to put your nose to the grindstone (see Section 4, Sample Study Schedules)
  • “Recharge” your motivation so that you become a more productive and willing learner without feeling useless and unproductive (see Sections 3 and 4)
  • Write in a way that leaves your essay graders no choice but to hand over the points you deserve (see Section 5, IRAC/CRAC Example Vault)
  • Add extra points to your MBE score (go from “multiple guess” to “multiple choice”), including tactics on how to choose 50/50 choices, how to be efficient during the MBE, and how to guess with the highest chance of being right (see Section 6)
  • Craft a flexible study schedule that works for YOU (not the other way around) so you don’t have to follow the herd of average, even if you have a full-time job or family to take care of (ready-to-use sample schedules, templates, and actual example schedules from CA & UBE students included) (see Section 4)
  • Stop wasting precious time spinning your wheels by concentrating on what moves the needle and moving past your mental blocks, including how to overcome your psychology of failure and how to ask your mentors the right questions that will elicit insight, not mere information (see Shortnotes, Cheat Sheets, Sections 2, 8 and 9)
  • Feel like you’re on the right track and things are coming together: Reduce overwhelm, move in the right direction, and know where to get the right tools without breaking the bank (see the Blueprint, Supplement Shopping List, Section 4, Appendix I, and exercises after each Section)
  • Handle post-bar anxiety and what to do if you fail the bar (Appendices III and IV)
What’s included?

An “Accelerator Kit” to get you to take action right away while the “aha” moment is in full effect

  • Sample Study Schedules (from 2 weeks to 10 weeks until the bar), templates, and real example schedules from CA & UBE students
  • Systematic Study Blueprint: high-level roadmap for your preparation process (think Approsheets for the bar)
  • Shortnotes: a highly concentrated 29-page guide that distills key insights from the comprehensive guide (with all-new insights)
  • Weekly Action Plan: suggested action steps and checkpoints from a weekly perspective
  • Supplement Shopping List: recommended supplements and where to get them, tiered based on your budget (whether you have a low budget or an infinite budget)
  • Cheat Sheets: quick reference for key reminders and learning techniques for each portion of the bar and studying in general
  • IRAC/CRAC Examples Vault: annotations and analyses of this all-important essay format

The “big playbook”—an encyclopedic 280-page treatise for in-depth guidance, including…

  • Plenty of exclusive material not seen anywhere on the blog
  • A “troubleshooting index” to direct you to answers to your most common pain points and questions
  • Action steps to stay accountable to yourself

Tools & supplements

  • MBE Practice Sheet (fillable and printable template for a convenient way to keep track of your answers)
  • MBE analytics chart (so you can determine and pinpoint your deficiencies as you continue to practice with MBE questions)
  • Performance Test guide (and where to find plenty of practice PTs, even if you’re taking the new California PT)
  • Audio interviews: (1) about the mindset to take now vs. on the bar and (2) “The Barbri Regret” (what’s useful and what’s not)
  • Pocket guide to accelerate your bar prep, with minimalist and cut-to-the-chase answers to 17 common FAQs

Passer’s Playbook 2.0

A collection of bite-sized lessons on mental models applied to bar preparation, to take you from overwhelmed to focused, from unmotivated to productive, from anxious to calm

 

Have you heard the expression, “How you do anything is how you do everything”? 

 

I would add to that: How you think is how you do.

 

As you continue with your bar studies, it becomes evident that mastery over your mindset is a critical component to your performance — whether during preparation or the exam itself.​ 

 

Like one of my readers, Elaine, says, “The mind is 50% of this exam. It has to be in the right frame. . . . The mind is powerful.” 

 

Or how about this, from Olivia? “I think some of my failures were heavily based on my negative attitude and constant self-deprecation.” 

 

Likewise, TLS user lnu1992 says, “A person’s ability to handle the anxiety and stress of the exam is also huge. Even though I was a top student, I blanked during parts of the exam.” 

 

  • If you’re quick to panicking or “freaking out”…
  • If you just don’t feel like it…
  • If you find yourself overwhelmed at the task and having difficulty staying on track mentally (and staying sane)…

 

Stay tuned.
