Visit our Circulation Desk – our Circulation Staff can help you find review books and outlines to assist with your bar preparation.
Our very own Professor Suzanne Darrow-Kleinhaus, Director of Academic Development and Bar Programs, has written two comprehensive, practical, and enormously helpful guides to the bar exam, which are available to you in our library:
ACING THE BAR EXAM : A CHECKLIST APPROACH TO TAKING THE BAR EXAM
This book offers guidance on how to plan for your bar exam preparation while taking into consideration your lifestyle and your study goals. It further deconstructs the bar exam and the bar review course for you, providing helpful tips on how to practice both the essay questions and the multiple choice questions that you will face on the bar exam. There’s even advice on what to do when it’s all over.
THE NEW YORK BAR EXAM BY THE ISSUES
Co-Authored with Associate Dean Myra Berman & John J. Cooney
This guide offers advice and counsel as to taking the New York Bar Exam, so that you pass the exam the first time. Helpful study plans, real advice about reading and writing the New York essays, and detailed preparation techniques for the New York State multiple choice are provided.
PASS THE BAR EXAM – AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION
By Sara J. Berman
While not authored by Professor Darrow-Kleinhaus, this is also a very popular and helpful book to guide you through your preparation for the bar exam.
An upcoming post will provide you with resources on taking care of yourself during this intense study period – the home stretch before you are a practicing, professional attorney.
In the meantime, keep calm and read on.
