Robert was unsuccessful twice before enrolling in the Personal Bar Review course..

“I really appreciate everything AmeriBar has done for me. It was probably the best decision I’ve made in the past five to six years of my life… Without AmeriBar it would have been another disappointment. My scores went up 10-15 points in each section.”

Heidi

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.”
