Traditional bar review courses are not only ridiculously overpriced, but the methodologies employed are also responsible for some of the lowest bar exam pass rates in decades.

BarMax was designed to address all of the inefficiencies of traditional bar prep options, so we take a very different approach than our competitors.

We do not feel that overwhelming you with a kitchen-sink approach and made-up questions with perfect model answers will put you in the best position to pass the bar exam.

We also do not recommend a study schedule that requires 8 to 9 to 10 hours of prep each day.

It is important to remember that the bar exam is a minimum competency exam that requires around a 65% to pass. The standard is nowhere near perfect, so there is absolutely no reason to pretend that it is.

This is why we provide one clear and concise outline per subject with everything you need to pass, nothing more.

We also only use real questions to ensure that the questions you are practicing with are representative of what you will see on the actual bar exam.

Additionally, by using the latest technologies, we have been able to improve the convenience of bar review courses while at the same time dramatically reduce the price.

BarMax is also the only bar review course to offer instant and lifetime access to the course materials so you can start preparing the moment you enroll and never worry about repaying for access.

You will not find a more affordable, more convenient or more effective comprehensive bar review course on the market. But don’t take our word for it . . .

After more than 10 years out of law school California, I had a lot of doubts about my prospects for success on the Maine UBE. But BarMax was just what I needed. I passed with 40 points to spare.

I took the Cal Bar four times before I passed. I studied using [a] 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.

I wanted to let you know that I passed the UBE. I was working over 40 hrs/week during prep . . . My score was high enough to transfer to any UBE state in the country. This is my 2nd bar exam. I passed my 1st one using Barbri, so I am very familiar with other courses. BarMax was better then BarBri in my opinion, and for a third of the price.

Lindsey Goff

I'm a foreign-educated lawyer and I just passed the February 2018 NY bar on my first try. I only used BarMax for my review and I conclude it is the best option for people who don't want to pay for an inordinate amount of money for a bar review program - and it's yours forever! 

Michelle Dye

I used BarMax for the WA State UBE. I got a 318, when passing is a 270. I paid a third of what most of my friends paid for their program. I loved BarMax for it’s flexibility and effectiveness.

After several unsuccessful attempts to pass the bar using various study aides, including the Kaplan bar prep, I found BarMax . . .  and I recently just found out I passed! The amazing part is that I did this while working full-time!

Karen Wilson

After seeing the same costly bar review products, I ran across BarMax and decided to give it a try. I work 50+ hours a week, have a one hour commute each way to work and have two toddlers who take up all my free time. I scored a 167.2 on the MBE and a 316 on the UBE in whole. I would highly recommend this bar review to anyone regardless of time available and resources. It's far superior to BarBri in every respect that matters, and in final results.
