The Bar Exam Cram Session pulled everything together for me. In just two days I gained a new sense of confidence and a clear strategy for passing the exam. It was literally a two-day bar review crash course. The follow up we received afterwards was amazing and the essay predictions were absolutely spot on! - Chris G.

The Bar None Review Difference: Small Classes, Individual and Personalized Instruction, No Videotapes
Bar None Review provides you with the best of both worlds – dynamic instructors in a small classroom setting coupled with individual, private tutoring and mentoring. This winning combination provides you with the best opportunity for success. We care about our students. It is our goal everyday to provide students with the best opportunity to pass the bar exam. We do so by providing our students with a structured course, private mentoring, unparalleled exam writing feedback and support, excellent course materials and unique exam taking tools.
IMMEDIATE AND MEANINGFUL EXAM WRITING FEEDBACK
Bar None Review has compiled over 20 years of past California bar exams. Our materials reflect the patterns, issues and organization embraced by the California Bar Examiners.
Many courses will tell you that your essay is not up to standard, but few courses will provide feedback that teaches the student how to fix their exam answer.
Bar None Review provides meaningful and detailed feedback on essay and performance exams so that students make quick progress. We pride ourselves on maintaining the quickest turn around time on our exams. Our competition often takes weeks to return an essay. We feel this is useless to a student studying for the bar exam. At Bar None Review the typical turn around time for an essay exam is two to three days. In many cases, students will receive their graded essay exam in 24 hours. This is a critical feature of our review program.
Students tell us the quick turn around and detailed feedback they receive is crucial to their success.
MENTORING AND SUPPORT
OUR COMPETITORS' “GRADING”
Our goal is to get you through the bar exam. Whether you are taking the bar exam for the first time or you are a repeat taker, our goal is to make this next bar exam your last. We have worked with many students who prior to coming to Bar None Review had taken the bar exam numerous times. It has been our tremendous pleasure to not only help these students make the improvement that for years evaded them, but to be the bar review program that finally saw them through the bar exam. We are also proud that we successfully prepare first time bar exam takers as well and spare them from years of unnecessary frustration.
At Bar None Review we do not believe that a numbered score and two or three comments is in any way sufficient to teach students what they need to do to improve their essay scores. We see no value in this approach. Instead, Bar None Review students receive detailed comments that indicate both what is good about the essay and what is poor. We do not pull any punches – if the essay exam is terrible, then we let you know. But, more importantly, we teach you what you need to do to improve.
ESSAY EXAM WRITING TEMPLATES
Bar None Review provides exam writing templates for every tested topic. We think that if you take a look at a sample bar exam writing template that the value of these templates will be obvious. The Bar Exam Writing Templates are invaluable because there is an order in which most issues should be analyzed on a given essay exam. This order varies from topic to topic. In addition, there is also appropriate test language that you should use. This test language and order does not change from one bar exam to the next.

Our Exam Writing Templates provide you with the test language you need in the most likely order that you will need to present it. In addition, these templates will help to ensure that you do not miss issues because the issues are generated by the approach of the particular template. For example, the Fourth Amendment Bar Exam Writing Template groups certain exceptions to the warrant requirement together because if you have one present then you most likely have other exceptions that are at issue. For example, if you see Search Incident to an Arrest you may very well be correct. But most students fail to see that in the same fact pattern they should have discussed Wing Span, Moving Wing Span, Protective Sweep (even if no protective sweep was actually conducted) and Plain View. As a result, many students see one of the issues but miss two to four other issues that while may not have been the major one, are critical because they indicate a complete understanding and not just a cursory one.
Any course can provide you with a substantive outline. We provide our students with excellent course outlines. But our Bar Exam Writing Templates provide much more than a course outline. The Templates provide a specific step-by-step approach for each topic and provide test language instead of lengthy, convoluted definitions that you then have to put into your own words.
