About Me - Bar Exam

About Me

Hi my name is Dustin Saiidi, and I want to help you pass the exam of your life!

I’m a certified attorney licensed in California, and I passed my bar exam in February 2010. I know what taking the bar is like and all the stress that can come with it.  I know you can and will pass your bar exam!  I created this site to help you pass by answering questions and giving you insider tips, help, support, and mentoring that you might not get from other sources (even from prep programs like Barbri).

I also know a lot (but not all) the questions that are likely running through your mind.  In each post, we will answer a different question that you might have about the bar exam.

Although, I have been there done and that and know a lot about this exam, I still don’t know everything.  I encourage you to post comments and give feedback, so I know how I can cater to you.

If you have a specific question you are wondering, please leave it in the comment section on a relevant post or email us at ipassedmybarexam@gmail.com, and we’ll do some research for you!

You had mentioned in one of your posts that you would do essays without knowing the law, but found it to be the most valuable part of your bar study time. I know you are correct, but I have never been able to issue spot without knowing the law. Could you please give me some insight on how you went about doing essays without actually knowing the law?

It’s all about practice. The first two essays, you might not spot a single issue! However, the 3rd and 4th essays, you’ll probably spot at least 75% of the issues because issues get repeated over and over.
Please check this post for 5 issue spotting techniques:

Thanks for much for your podcasts! I have been out of law school for 15 years and wish I had heard some of the info you and your guests talk about back then! I’m so glad I came across your work before getting started as it will definitely make a difference as I prepare to take the bar again this February.
