"...this book may be the best money you can spend on bar exam preparation."
-- St. John's Law School Forum
The classic text plus new Appendix on "How to Do Legal Analysis"
". . . My most sincere thanks for writing this book. I have spent three years in the dark in law school knowing something was missing in my legal writing and exam writing but could never uncover what despite my efforts and reading countless books. This book brought me into the light and not only did my grades surge in my school's bar skills class after using the process but I had a series of internal realizations that completed my understanding of what it is a lawyer does. Thinking in a logical framework now has meaning to me when I hear it. I learned how to think like a lawyer with this book. Now the bar exam is something I am excited to start preparing for because for the first time in this process I feel I have a chance to get great results. All thanks go to your book!"
--Joseph Cirillo, Pace Law School, Class of 2009

READ: Testimonial from Thomas Edward Feeney, a graduate of Fordham Law School:
They just released the New York bar exam model answers and thanks to you and your fantastic materials I found myself reading my own answer to question five! I spent three years in law school knowing I knew the law better than most but receiving grades only slightly higher than the curve, and now I know why: It's all in how you present the material. I only wish I had your book and tapes before I walked into my first class. Thanks again!
-- Thomas E.S. Feeney, Fordham Law School, Member, New York bar
READ: Testimonial from Professor Yvonne L. Twiss, Capital University Law School:
Your book Scoring High on Bar Exam Essays has been required reading in my for-credit bar preparatory course for several years and I believe Scoring High has played an important role in increasing the law school’s bar passage rate. The students find the “under, here, therefore” approach more accessible and easier to implement than other legal analysis methods. As a result, they write better-organized and better-scoring bar exam essays. I would recommend the book to anyone preparing for the bar exam.
Yvonne Lundwall Twiss
Professor of Bar Services
Capital University Law School
Thank you, Professor Twiss!

Dear Dr. Gallagher:

Law Student Journal
"In Scoring High, unlike some other popular books, the bar candidate is actually taught how to write analytically." -- Law Student Journal
The Columbia Law School News:
"Provides a concrete approach that is easy to understand and easy to apply."
The St. John's Law School Forum:
"Before you spend hundreds on one of the more expensive seminars you might want to part with the bucks for this excellent book. . . . The book teaches candidates how to summon and catalog their knowledge on an area of law, apply it to the facts of the many informative model questions and reach proper legal conclusions. . . .
"The book has certainly helped me... There is a thorough explanation of how bar exam essays are graded, as well as a helpful list of test-taking rules. All in all, the book is a well-structured guide designed to help candidates maximize their potential on bar exam essays. It provides both thought-provoking actual bar exam questions and edifying answers to them. Aside from its value as a writing improvement book it is also a miniature bar review. After spending $40,000 on a law degree, this book may be the best money you can spend on bar exam preparation."
"Don't take the bar without it!!!" -- Joyce Smith, Esq.,
From Washington, D.C., Howard Law School graduate:
"If you are serious about passing the bar exam, you should stop reading this review immediately and BUY DR. GALLAGHER'S BOOK! Even if you are unable to take her excellent course (which I HIGHLY recommend), you MUST add this book to your list of bar preparation materials. By practicing Dr. Gallagher's simple, effective writing method, and using the sample essays she provides, you will be trained to write any bar exam essay quickly, efficiently, and successfully.

"A good study aid for writing essays."-- Travis A. Wise, from Campbell, CA.
"I'm happy to recommend this book - it's quite useful. The first half of the book is tips, the second half is 80 full-length essay exam with model answers. . . ."
"I was able to write the essay without thinking about the approach, so I had a lot of confidence." --Jan Riley, Columbia Law School (Member, New York, Texas and District of Columbia Bars)
"The systems allowed ideas to flow as I wrote the bar essays." --Laurence R. Nichter, Cardozo Law School (Member, New York and New Jersey Bars)
"Dr. Gallagher's techniques are the most effective in the entire bar preparatory field. She relies on sound intellectual principles, as opposed to gimmicks and chicanery. If you want gimmicks, then I recommend you watch infomercials, but if you want to pass the bar exam, then see Dr. Mary Campbell Gallagher."--Christian Bernard (Member, New York Bar)
