Top Bar Exam Preparation Companies

When you graduate law school, you are faced with being challenged with your state’s bar exam. One of the toughest decisions you’ll face is what bar exam course do you take. Picking the right course is imperative as you will be studying alongside your peers. The below table is a side-by-side comparison of the main bar exam preparation companies. Note that if you are looking at AdaptiBar, they only offer preparation for the multistate bar exam (the multiple-choice questions). This makes them an excellent option if you are looking to supplement any of your other preparation studies.

Right now I only have one review up for AdaptiBar, but hope to expand to other providers in the future.
