How is the Score MaximizerTM Program different from other programs?

The main reason examinees fail the California bar exam is because they have not been taught how to take the test. We focus not only on the substantive law, but on teaching our students how to take the test. Passing the California bar exam requires far more than simply learning and memorizing the substantive law. To insure success, you need to know how to write essays for the California bar examiners, how to dissect and approach and write a performance test and how to truly master the MBE portion. There are real techniques required for each section of the California bar exam. At Bar None Review, we specialize in teaching these passing techniques. Students who participate in the Score MaximizerTM Program receive individual mentoring and coaching, exam grading, live instruction, free Bar Exam Cram SessionsTM, access to our online learning center, all course materials (including our highly sought after Exam Writing Template Book), and a personalized, individual study plan that will give you the best opportunity to make this next bar round your last.

“The Score MaximizerTM Program is excellent! I was able to significantly improve on my multi-states as well as my essay performance. If you are willing to put in the work, Bar None Review will show you how to get where you need to go.” – Ben Wishart, Esq.

Mentoring and Tutoring

At Bar None Review we care about our students progress and we know how much it means to be able to meet with a live person who is interested in your success. We pride ourselves on providing what we think every bar course should – quality materials, quality instruction, meaningful exam writing feedback and personal, one on one attention

Exam Writing Workshops

Our exam writing workshops are far more than a substantive review. BNR’s exam writing workshops provide step-by-step approaches for writing the most commonly tested areas. This guided exposure to past bar exam essays, teaches students how to approach topics based upon what the bar examiners have embraced historically. We teach students how to write effectively for the California Bar Examiners. Plus, as a Score Maximizer student, you will have access to all of our videos through our online campus, 24 hours a day. You can watch as many times as you like.

What if I am a first time bar taker?

If you are a first time bar examinee, taking the Score MaximizerTM Program is one of the best ways to insure that you will only take the bar exam once. The problem with some of the options offered by competitors is that the programs are typically one size, fits all. The California bar exam is one of the hardest in the nation. Our students enjoy high pass rates because our program is tailored to the specific rigors of the California bar and to each students individual needs.

What works for one state (in terms of bar prep) simply does not generally translate to passing in California. At Bar None Review, we have specialized in preparing examinees for the California bar exam since 1999. This is why Bar None Review has been chosen by top law firms throughout the country to prepare their new hires and associates for the California bar exam.

What if I am repeating the bar exam? Access to videos to watch from home!

The Score MaximizerTM Program is ideal for repeat bar examinees because we are able to prepare a program that is specifically designed for you and your needs. If you are a repeat bar examinee, the program begins with an evaluation of your bar exam score sheet as well as a personal assessment conducted by phone or in person. After this initial assessment we put together a plan of action and you begin making improvement right away. About three to four weeks after bar results, you will receive your bar exam answers for the essays and performance tests from the California bar examiners. These are mailed to you automatically. Once you receive your past bar exam answers we will review these for you to make sure that your study plan and program are designed to remedy your problem areas as well as capitalize on your strengths.

By developing a program specifically designed for you and your needs, you are able to focus on the areas that you need to improve the most. It is especially important to master the actual technique of passing the exam. We achieve this by teaching our proven method and strategies and providing exam feedback and coaching.
