CalRetakers SE

Our bestselling retakers course, designed to make your next attempt your last one. We diagnose why you fell short before, and get you on a different, better path for the next attempt.

It's not too late to join us—but hurry!

Until January 11, 2021 at 11:59:59 p.m. (PST), we are offering express access to our courses to get you through the upcoming exam. So if you're just now getting ready for the February 2021 California Bar Exam, we've got you covered. We're even including some free add-ons.










Make next time, your last time.

Maybe you've heard the proverb, "Fall down seven times, and stand up eight." That's incomplete. Once you're up, don't keep heading down the same path you keep tripping on. That's where we come in. CalRetakers will put you on a different, better path. It features a structured bar exam course and virtual classroom, PowerLaw Pro, weekly live chats, and simulated mini-bar exams. But it also includes grading from each simulation, in addition to a performance analysis of your most recent attempt.

Structured Course

You will meet in our virtual online classroom on set dates and at set times to keep you accountable and on track with a detailed schedule that tells you what to do every day between now and the day after the exam.

PowerLaw Pro

You will receive six months of access to PowerLaw Pro, which includes video lectures, essay banks with model answers, the Proponics Learning Environment for Law (our online, interactive law outlines) and more. Learn more.

Live Chats

You and your classmates will live chat with Dr. Saccuzzo weekly during the first phase of the program. Bring your law questions, study concerns, or other exam-related inquiries to the conversation.

Simulated Exams

You will take four simulated mini-bar exams, each one covering a quarter of the subjects fair game on the bar exam. This breaks the exam into manageable doses and serves as dress rehearsals for the actual exam. Learn more.


You will get one essay or PT from each of the four simulated mini-bar exams graded by us, using our unique, voice feedback approach (we embed voice comments directly into your exam), with an option to get the other two exams graded. Learn more.

Performance Analysis

Get your score letter analyzed from the most recent California Bar Exam to help you see just how close you really were and to understand what you did right and what you need to work on. Learn more.

Basic Bundle

Get our Essay Basic and PT Basic PowerLaw Add-Ons. These add-ons provide extra help on the essays and PTs. Both include our tested approach, advice, debriefs, and additional practice exams. Learn more.

Email Consultations

Get ten email consultations with Dr. Saccuzzo. These are perfect for substantive law questions that may arise during your studies, or for more individual concerns you did not want to bring to the live chat.

MBE Workshop

Get our MBE Add-On. This workshop will teach you our approach to the MBE. Includes a short pre-test assessment and bank of Fed Civ Pro items. Learn more.

"Bar Secrets helped me pass the California bar exam on the first attempt. Their materials and methods helped me overcome my doubts, and to my surprise memorization was easier than I thought it would be. Thank you!"

Jennifer Poplin

"Based on high praise, I chose Bar Secrets to prepare me for the most intense test of my life: the California Bar Exam. I was not disappointed. I believe that Dennis Saccuzzo and Nancy Johnson's psychological approach applied to law, along with their emphasis on practice exams (under exam conditions) and taking care of mind and body, was what resulted in me being a first-time bar passer. From the day one, I could tell they truly had a secret; they knew how to pass the California Bar Exam. I recommend Bar Secrets with all my might, and without reservation."

Joshua Kay

"Thank you! I could not have done it without you guys. I really do believe in the program, and all I did was follow the schedule. It wasn't easy (and it made for some long days) but it worked. Without your support, I would not have made it."
