Fear, anxiety, and needless toil are not required components to passing the bar exam. There are no extra points for suffering.

Zanada Joyner, Esq. says:

When I arrived for my first meeting with Debbie, I was a defeated woman. I had unsuccessfully taken the NJ Bar Exam in July 2007 and July 2008. After the second time I almost convinced myself that I didn’t want to be a lawyer. The bar was pointless and worse I was ticked off that I couldn’t pass the stupid thing.  I was in deep debt, job prospects were bleak and I’d already taken a prep course. I was out of money but worse, I was out of motivation.

From our first conversation, Debbie assured me that she knew what she was doing and that I needed to trust her expertise. I fought against her. Like many other law students, I knew all the answers. I surveyed my classmates who had passed, I analyzed the pass rates, and I knew that I could do this on my own. Debbie evaluated my past results. We talked about everything (my mischievous pet, money woes, my deep fear of practice) and she understood. She shared her own story and then explained her method to me. Debbie assured me that I was not simply a paying client to her; she was invested in my success. That alone was the difference between working with her and other bar preparation programs.

And work we did. Debbie offered me a level of personal attention that I thought was impossible to find. Her detailed instructions were reasonable and realistic. She didn’t even mention studying on Christmas Day. Debbie gave me permission to be a human being who had family and friends and a life. She imparted the need for bar preparation and life balance that was totally absent in my other preparations.

After the months passed, I began to feel more confident. Debbie guided me through the testing “experience” and helped me to manage my anxieties and maintain control.  She encouraged me to deal with all my anxieties in advance (getting lost, administrative breakdowns, smelly neighbor) and then when the day came I could deal with them in a non-detrimental manner. I thought Debbie was nuts. In truth, the bar exam tests everything but the law. The test is about stamina, confidence, and creativity.  I had failed previously not because I didn’t know the law but because I didn’t know the test.  Debbie prepped me for all the peculiarities and distractions that were bound to be there.

When I exited the exam room in February 2010 I was confident. (After the first two exams, I threw up.)  This test had been different. I was different. For the first time in a long time, I leaned on someone else. I trusted Debbie. I followed her directions and it worked. I was in control!
My time with Debbie was invaluable; not just for bar preparation but also for my professional development and personal growth. I highly recommend Debbie’s services to anyone who is seeking a different bar preparation program.  The one caveat about Debbie is that she demands hard work and dedication but also some “surrender” of the type-A law student personality. She drives the car to passing but, you must be a willing passenger.
