There’s nothing like hearing your own recorded voice for instant cringe. Despite your reasonable assumptions, I am not a peak human and always have things to improve upon.
Meanwhile, let’s instead focus on what you can learn today from a coaching call I did with a reader so that you might be able to take away some insights for improving your performance on the bar exam.
Here’s a recording of my discussion with Kristy about:

- Whether it’s right for her to delay her retake to the two-day CA bar in 2017
- Working while studying
- Scheduling with one-track tunnel vision.
