“After leaving Barbri after 20 years, I thought I would start another bar review course. And then I discovered BarMax . . . The materials are first class. The lecturers are first class. The content is geared to the bar examination . . . I highly recommend BarMax." -Stan Chess
“I took the Cal Bar four times before I passed. I served as a representative for a widely popular study course. I studied for the Cal Bar using this well-known course without success. I was turned onto BarMax through a friend who used the same program and failed the Cal Bar three times. After using BarMax for the first time, my friend passed, as did I. I couldn’t recommend BarMax any higher. It’s affordable, convenient, and effective. I wouldn’t be a lawyer today without BarMax.”
- Shannon Ripple, Humphreys College of Law
“The cost savings are great, but in my opinion, the real advantage is that the BarMax course itself is simply better than the competition.”

BarMax is Terrific
I am a very busy doctor and clinical scientist. Therefore, I haven’t had the time to sit for the Bar exam as of yet. However, I’ve been enrolled in a number of Bar exam material, and BarMax is clearly the best resources available. I’m very confident that I’ll pass on the first with this Bar exam material.

The BarMax is an incredible way to study for the Bar exam. I think that the reason most people fail is the exam is because they have spent less time with practicing the exam questions. I think it is the case that students that we need to go through at least the 1800 questions, to learn the rules of law, and to see how the bar examiners repeat the particular issues on the bar exam. That is essentially what borrow max has provided the student, both the bar exam questions, the excellent interpretation of the rationale behind each question, plus the audio lectures and flashcards that will help supplement the actual practice a bar exam questions. I also believe that if you talk to students who have not passed the bar exam it’s because they have not gone through the questions as extensively as a BarMax has provided that excellent opportunity. Bar Max is not an excellent job. All the information is there. I highly recommend BarMax as the one and the only place to shop: the one stop shopping!

Well Worth the Money
I was honestly very happy with BarMax as my choice for my bar prep course! I used BarMax to study for the MPRE after narrowly missing the score needed for my state. After using BarMax to study for the MPRE, I improved my score by 25 points, scoring above and beyond what is required for any jurisdiction. Based on this, I made the decision to use BarMax for the New York July 2018 bar exam. The lectures were just what you needed to know, none of the extra fluff. I loved having access to an abundance of MPT and MEE questions and answers. They essay scoring service was very insightful! The colander was very easy to stay on track and allowed for plenty of time to review. My favorite feature was the MBE portion of the course. BarMax provides you with actual questions released by the Board of Law Examiners, not questions drafted for the course. Therefore, the MBE questions were like the ones on the actual bar. Because of BarMax, I was able to pass the NY bar and score high enough to be able to transfer my UBE score to the majority of accepting jurisdictions.
BarMax will have (hopefully) enabled me to pass the July 2018 UBE with a score of 276 or above.
actual MBE Questions gave me confidence rather than the practice questions provided by my Bar Course representative. After completing roughly 1K of the BarMax genuine MBE questions, I returned to question sets from Bar course and was more confident but still not answering above 68-70% correct on average. The BarMax “real” question sets came back with an overall 80% correct. I feel confident about the MBE. I regret not using their entire program as my primary Bar prep study aide. I’m on the fence with MEE and MPT portions of the UBE but nevertheless certain the material in the BarMax xourse would have fit my learning style produced better results than I anticipate having elected to use the most heavily marketed program at my law school. We’ll see. But BarMax is better than the other program of 6 letters that begins with a B. Buy BarMax’s full course. I suspect it produces better results for a fraction of the cost.
