Print Library Resources for Bar Exam Study

Congratulations to all our students who have completed their legal education and will be graduating on May 25th! We are so proud of you and all that you have accomplished.

In the interest of supporting you as you prepare to sit for the Bar Exam at the end of July, we have a variety of current resources that may be useful to you as you begin your formal study program.

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:


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 de-constructs 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.

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.

Our next post highlights online resources to use to get organized and get ready for the most intense, penultimate task before becoming a practicing attorney.

In the meantime, keep calm and read on.
