"The cost savings are great, but in my opinion, the real advantage is that the BarMax course itself is simply better than the competition."
"I used BarMax for the WA State UBE Bar. I got a 318, when passing is a 270. I paid a third of what most of my friends paid for their program."
"After five weeks of intensive study with BarMax (and only BarMax), I passed New York bar exam (UBE) with 65 points over the passing score of 266, with over 160 in MBE. I cannot imagine me passing the New York Bar in five weeks with such a high score without the wonderful help from BarMax."
"BarMax is quite simply the reason I passed the New York Bar Exam . . . I'd tried Barbri and Kaplan, both of which disappointed and led to unfortunate exam results first time around. Unwieldy materials. Unfocused lecturers. Wrong emphases . . . BarMax by contrast did exactly as claimed. "
"BarMax is the best bar course available for the UBE - bar none. That it also happens to be the cheapest boggles the mind . . . I attribute my passing the NY Bar as easily as I did entirely to BarMax, and would suggest it over and above any conventional in-class course."
"BarMax focuses on the content most likely to be tested and uses actual test questions as practice. I chose BarMax to save money, but in retrospect it was probably the best choice for me no matter the price."
"I was devastated when I failed to pass the CA bar on my first attempt after all I had spent thousands and used BARBRI . . . I studied with BarMax on my iPhone and passed the CA bar exam so their bar prep approach 100% works."
"I am an Australian lawyer who took [BarMax] and sat for the New York bar exam in July this year. I had never studied any American law before and took the course by myself. I found out a couple of weeks ago that I passed the exam."

Common Questions About the Bar Exam
What is the bar exam?
The bar exam is a standardized measure of knowledge of essential legal subjects. It is used to qualify passing test takers for bar membership and law practice. Bar exams are typically 12 hours in duration and are taken over the course of two days (Tuesday and Wednesday or Wednesday and Thursday).
A bar exam is the initial step in admission to a state bar. After one passes the bar exam, they will usually complete a character and fitness application to the state bar including work and other references.
Bar exams have recently become standardized across state lines through adoption of the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE), which tests general legal principles as opposed to state-specific material.
What are the bar exam requirements?
In order to take the bar exam, test takers generally have to have graduated from law school. Washington, Vermont, California, and Virginia allow those who have not graduated from law school to take the bar exam.
Types of question styles one will see on the Bar Exam.
The bar exam has traditionally consisted of multiple choice and essay questions requiring test takers to analyze the legal issues presented by a fact pattern. Bar exams also usually include a practice component (aka "lawyering task") to the exam commonly referred to as a "performance test" (PT).
On every state's bar exam other than Louisiana's, the Wednesday portion of the bar exam consists of 200-mulitple choice questions testing the subject areas of Civ Pro, Contracts, Con Law, Crimes, Evidence, Real Property and Torts. This section of the exam is commonly referred to as the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE).
