Mr. Zikman is the founder of The Strategic Bar Coach.

I was first admitted to the Bar of Ontario (Canada) in 1986 when I passed on my first attempt. The California Bar Exam, however, was a different story.
It took me three times to successfully slay that dragon. I tell you this because, unlike other tutors who made it on the first shot, I had to learn from my mistakes, develop a winning strategy, conquer my demons, and fight like hell to pass that damn exam... just like you.
As a traveler and bestselling author of "Chicken Soup for the Traveler’s Soul," I have learned a lot about the rigors of the road, and the California bar exam is one tough journey.
Indeed, you too will get there and I want to help you reach your destination. I will be your strategic coach, nurturing tutor, and constructive critic for every step of the journey. Together, let’s travel that road to successfully becoming a California attorney.

“Steve coached me by focusing on my strengths and helping me to not overemphasize my weaknesses. It was a completely different approach. I felt that he really cared about me, about how I was doing, and that he really wanted me to succeed.”
“This was my 4th time taking the California bar exam, and my last. Steve’s strategies and personal attention helped me see things in a different light that made all the difference.”
“As an attorney from another jurisdiction, Steve provided me with powerful techniques to prevent me from being too conclusory, especially on the essays.”
“Steve showed me the gamesmanship that’s involved in passing the California bar exam.”
“I was stressing on areas and things that weren't important. Steve helped me take a step back and refocus on the important things when I otherwise might have quit and not taken the exam.”
“Steve was a calming influence, always checking in on me. Even on the days of the exam, he'd check in. He helped me get things off my chest and shift my focus to the next part of the exam.”
