CA Bar Review Course | July 2022


This isn’t your ordinary, plug-and-play bar exam class.

BarMD uses scientifically proven memory-retention and skills-development techniques, specifically designed to ensure that students improve every day, and—more importantly—that they pass.

“BarMD was the best decision I ever made!” — Jhette D.

Every detail—down to the order in which you study each subject—has been carefully crafted to ensure maximum success. We don’t just give you the law, we teach you how to use it. And you’ll know you’re using it right because you’ll have the one-on-one attention from our faculty, who’ll spot and cure any problem areas.

“This program is simply the best in the business! If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would.” — Stephanie S.

Day 1: Bar-ology 101

First, we’ll take you inside the mind of the bar grader—and walk you through exactly how the bar exam is graded and what the bar exam score actually means. This is crucial: when you know how a bar grader thinks, you’re certain to get more points.

Then, we’ll show you how to arm yourself with every tool possible. Never outlined before? No problem, we’ll show you how. Don’t know how you’ll memorize all that information? We’ve got you covered. Day 1 starts you off on the right foot, so you cross that finish line.

Day 2: MBE Therapy

We’ll take apart MBE questions piece-by-piece. You’ll learn all the best rules of thumb—so even if you’re not sure on a question, you’ll have plenty of ways to reach the right answer. But we don’t stop there: We’ll also teach you to thoughtfully assess your MBE progress, to ensure that you’re improving every day.

Day 3: The Performance Test 

Students think the performance test is intimidating. It’s not. We teach you how to master the closed-universe project that is the PT. From the order in which you read the materials—yes, it matters!—to the timing down to the minute, we’ll train you to crush the performance test and score every possible point. By the time you’re done, you’ll look forward to these 90-minute adventures.

Day 4: Essay Anatomy

No, you can’t just read a fact pattern and write an essay. You must know what goes where, and how to plan it out before you start writing. Like everything else, a well-planned essay is a strong essay. This class gives you the template you need to make sure the bar grader sees every single point you deserve. It also ensures you hit every goal, use every fact, and spot every issue. Using BarMD’s unique CRAMPTM essay-planning method, you’ll spend 25% of your time planning what you write, and 75% of your time writing the best possible essay.

Day 5: Analysis

What is an inference—and why does it matter? How do I actually show the bar examiner that I know what the law is and how to apply it? We break these and other questions down and teach you the formula for success. By the time you walk out the door, you’ll be scoring higher on every practice essay. (Hint: your best tool is the word “because.”)

Day 6: Bar Exam Rehab

It’s crunch time. You’ll have already improved remarkably (and we’ll show every student how much progress they’ve made). Now, it’s time to hammer down on the skills you’ve still got room to work on. This class is specially designed to drill deep into your analysis, structure, and writing tools, to further refine them before test day.

One-on-one Attention

To ensure you’re making the right amount of progress, you get one-on-one sessions with your Exam Specialist. We’re with you every step of the way—so that no one slips through the cracks. 

Subject Dissection Seminars

Take a deep dive into every subject area and dissect essay and MBE questions, so you can understand how to tackle everything you’ll see on the exam. Guided by BarMD’s expert faculty, these lectures are like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

Substantive Lectures + Outlines

We give you everything you need to master the law. You’ll have access to online lectures conducted by our bar exam experts, as well as the most thorough, easiest-to-use outlines you’ve ever seen. We distill the law into clear, concise material that’s easy to digest—and even easier to memorize.

Full Simulated Exam

Before you walk into the bar, you’ll have already taken it. Our proctored, two-day bar simulation is designed to test all the skills we’ve taught you, and to identify any continuing areas for improvement. Take a full ride through the real bar exam, so when you walk in the door on test day, it’ll be routine. And yes, we score it!
