As a law student about to start my bar studies, I loved this book because it goes where many bar-related books don't - into the mental obstacles that tend to go hand-in-hand with the bar exam, in particular, doubting your own capabilities. The book is like having a mini psychologist, giving you the tools to deal with stress and that annoying instinct to freak out.

It's a really easy read; full of pictures and drawings, and will probably only take you about 45 minutes on the elliptical trainer at the gym. Also, it's interspersed with great little stories about other people's stress (including the author's), which reminded me that every law student is dealing with the same fears that I am. The successful ones are those who manage these fears the best. But the book is more than about stress management. It also gives you practical study skills for improving your writing and multiple choice skills, and even contains a study schedule to help keep you on track.

I realized that I needed to listen to my angst over the bar exam instead of avoiding it, hoping that it would go away. It's tough to see your fears on paper, in this book, but somehow the author knows all of them, and gets you to confront them. WELL worth the $16 or so off of Amazon.
