BookFace: Guide Book in passing Philippine bar exam
ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE who will be taking the Philippine law exam (or bar exam) this year? Either first time or repeaters, this book might be able to provide you a practical guide and realistic tips in passing the exam especially for those who are working fulltime or who could not attend regular review classes.
I met the author late last year when he was the primary lecturer of our corporate seminar on proper or valid employee dismissal. Being one of the project managers, the seminar provided us invaluable information on how to tackle termination of employees which will not also benefit the employers but also the employees.
Atty. Elvin Villanueva has written several books related to Philippine labor, compensation and benefits. But he also written a book that somehow explains his personal story on how he passed the licensure bar exam and to be a full-pledged lawyer. Atty Villanueva shared his story, anectodes and events that took place prior and after his bar exam in 2009 thru his latest book entitled, How to Pass the Bar Exams. Atty. Elvin also shares his views on the new bar exam system that covers 60% multiple choice questions and 40% memorandum-type essay.
I bought the book as a Xmas presence to my cousin who is now in the final year of her law course in San Beda. I asked Atty. Elvin to write a dedication in the hard cover of the book as an inspiration for my cousin to pass the exam this year. Good luck my dear cousin (Atty. S.T.) and Im sure you will be successful to pass with high marks in 8 subjects!
