100 Hours or Less: The Best Damn Guide to the Bar Exam
Nathan W. Reggish, Esq.
Nathan graduated law school a semester early in December and sat for the February bar exam. During that same semester, he was still a full time graduate student, taking 12 credit hours of coursework toward both his LL.M. and M.B.A. Nathan did not have hundreds of hours to exclusively study for the bar, so he discovered a way to prepare in the shortest time possible. Nathan taught his strategy to his friends, who each used it to pass their bar exams with less than 100 hours of prep time. Nathan again passed the bar in his second jurisdiction a year later, after further refining his study method. This Guide is Nathan's approach to the bar exam.
A successful yet unconventional strategy to prepare for the bar exam in 100 hours or less.
Recent law school graduates who are preparing to take the bar exam in the US. All have completed their undergraduate (bachelor) degrees, plus an additional 90 credit hours of professional doctorate coursework to complete their juris doctor degree. Graduates are overwhelming between the ages of 25 to 28. About 50,000 test takers each year, across the whole country. The bar exam is administered only twice each year, February and July; so the target audience is experiencing a high level of stress, due to the possibility of failing the exam and, consequently, having to postpone the start of their career by 6 additional months (likely also resulting in a loss of job prospects). Each reader has spent the last 3 years acquiring an average of another $100k in student loan debt, and they cannot begin their careers without passing this exam, which generally only has a 2/3 pass rate (1/3 fail rate) and is only offered twice each year. Naturally, many of them are in a state of fear and panic.
Book cover type
I'm definitely looking for a bright, attention-gathering yellow background color. Text color: I'm leaning toward the idea of a blue that contrasts the yellow background; however, I am open to alternative suggestions. Text font: san serif. I am open to suggestions for imagery, mood, and style.
What to avoid
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
