California Bar Exam Review

BarMax's California Bar Exam Review Course offers comprehensive prep for every aspect of the CA bar exam.

The California bar exam is known to be one of the most difficult exams in the nation and is administered over a 3-day period in February and July. Despite this fact, our California students consistently tell us how prepared they felt on exam day and our pass rates support it.

BarMax California provides you with a comprehensive and manageable course that teaches every aspect of the state exam, including MBE topics and state-specific material.

Our course is unique in that it streamlines the material you need to pass the exam, instead of providing an intimidating amount of unnecessary content. It also provides you with real MBE questions, not questions that are "test-like" and written in-house.

When you enroll in BarMax California, your study materials are available instantly, so you can start immediately and study at your pace. Plus, there are no additional fees to access the full course after the exam.

Course Structure

BarMax California includes the 14 major exam topics, corresponding to the topics tested on the exam. We then divide each topic into 7-8 subtopics, to make the study material easier to absorb.

Each of these subtopics include an in-depth outline, an audio lecture from a Harvard-educated law professor, and when appropriate, numerous flashcards and multiple-choice MBE questions from previous exams.

Upon enrollment, you'll receive a Welcome Packet that includes skeleton outlines of lecture notes. The Welcome Packet also includes printable PDFs of performance tests and practice essays from previous exams, with 2 model answers for each essay.

You will also receive 2 free writing critiques (performance tests or essays). Additional critiques can be purchased a la carte, or in an unlimited package. Our former state bar graders ensure you receive accurate and effective criticism.
