“I didn’t just learn how to pass the test, I learned the law that was tested and I feel like I’m a better attorney because of it. I actually studied in a building; in a law school … with a bunch of folks who were taking barbri and Kaplan courses and what I heard from them seemed to reinforce my thought that using AmeriBar was a good decision. “

“I think the best thing about the AmeriBar course was that it did not waste my time. I had a limited amount of study time every day and a limited number of days until I took the test. The AmeriBar course was concise and contained all the information I needed but not more information than I needed – no long extra explanations of superfluous material. “
