Our bestselling retakers course is designed to help you surpass the 1390 cut score and make this next bar exam, your last bar exam. We can (optionally) diagnose why you fell short before, and get you on a different, better path for the next attempt.
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 now-OPTIONAL full performance analysis of your most recent attempt.
You will meet in our virtual 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.
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.
You will be able to chat with Dr. Saccuzzo or Dr. Johnson weekly during the first phase of the program. Bring your law questions, study concerns, or other exam-related inquiries to the conversation.
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 both essays and the 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). Learn more.
NOW OPTIONAL (NOT INCLUDED IN LIGHT VERSION)! Get your score letter analyzed and your returned answers from the most recent California Bar Exam evaluated with our high-tech feedback approach (we embed voice comments right into your answers). Learn more.
Enroll in our new tailored course now before all seats fill.
Two options to choose from.
Some retakers don't need or can't use our Performance Analysis service (where we analyze your score letter and provide detailed feedback on your returned essay and PT answers from the most recent California bar exam). Whatever the reason, now you can enroll in CalRetakers SE Light Tailored and get a more affordable and more appropriate option to vault you over the 1390 cut score.

"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!"
"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."
"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."
