Student Spotlight

“I felt so prepared and so well-versed in every area of the law for the exam. I never felt that way with Barbri the first couple of times I took it. I can’t say enough about how well-prepared I felt and how relieved I was after failing twice to come back and just nail it after six years of absence from the law.”

Dayton Law School

Allison was unsuccessful with Barbri before enrolling in our course.

“[T]he materials are put together in a superior way. They read much more smoothly. I think they’re put together in a more sequential and chronological way. They are far easier to comprehend, and learning it in a linear sequential way, the way AmeriBar has them set out, really helped me pass.”

Thomas Cooley Law School

Heidi was unsuccessful twice with Barbri before enrolling in tutoring.

“Well, the one thing I did do differently was not use Barbri… I used the AmeriBar materials and had the one-on-one tutorial for the essays. I do think it probably made a large difference in how I handled and approached my essays.”

I was able to use the priority system AmeriBar uses to organize my outlines and include only the topics that were most likely to appear on the exam, and then memorize those topics. . . . I was more than satisfied with AmeriBar. ... AmeriBar allowed me to easily prioritize my studying while giving me all the information necessary. Thanks!"
