Wonder what people are saying about the book?

Here is a recent testimonial:

Thank you for publishing that wonderful book! After failing before, I finally passed. And as I left the exam after the first day I thought to myself “if I pass, it is because of those one page JD Advising sheets!” I am a single, working mom who is very committed to her kids; it’s simply not possible for me to cram like other bar examinees. Those one page sheets made it manageable. You helped me prioritize my limited time. I just literally could not memorize everything Barbri expected (where does one with limited time even start when they stress we should know everything!?!?) but I could memorize those sheets. Also, your tips on how to structure the essays were immensely helpful. Even the basics about the exam and other study programs were really eye-opening. I was so angry when I learned Barbri just made up their own questions! I bought the MBE book you recommended in your book (Emanuel I think?) so I could study ACTUAL questions. That helped enormously as well.

Thank you so much. You changed my life!
