Law student, Carlos Urdaneta, took Reed Bar Review’s Gold 1-on-1 bar tutoring program. We’d like to share his comments about the experience—you’ll see why Reed Bar Review students have the highest pass rate in the nation. Carlos is a non-traditional student. English is not his primary language; he’s not in the under 25 demographic, and time is of great concern to him in his studies. We helped him and we’re right here to help you, too.
Have a look at what Carlos, and other bar exam takers, have thought after working with Reed Bar Review.
First of all, Carlos said the Reed Bar Review products are “superb!” From the audios, to the videos, to the printed material, he found them very helpful and he awarded us 5 out of 5 points. He said, “The material is well-written, covers the right areas and is easy to mentally process.”
How Do Students Rate Our MBE Training?
Carlos told us, “Over the top! Not only the endless number of topic-specific-MBE-questions that you present is impressive, but also the materials that help (the student) understand certain type questions…. i.e. you warn about spousal privilege or arson or manslaughter by saying “memorize this chart” ….. and you also explain many of variations for that Topic, furthermore you provide a countless number of questions for (each) topic. WOW!”
How We Rate on Bar Exam Essay Question Training
Hugh Reed and the entire staff were especially pleased with Carlos’ reaction to this portion of his bar tutoring and bar exam training experience. It’s not easy to teach to essay questions, and many traditional bar exam reviews fall far short of meeting students’ needs. We take your needs seriously.
“This is a feature of Reed Bar Review that can help every non-native speaker of English, like myself. I completed 12 essays. The feedback was blunt and to the point, which is necessary in order for the student to improve. I did not allow the instructor to give me more essays due to time and health constraints, but the instructor was willing to continue assigning essays and improving my writing until he felt it was time to move to something else.”
*Keep in mind, law students, we excel at helping native English speakers as well!*
Reed Bar Review Multistate Performance Training
After awarding Reed Bar Review another 5 of 5 points, Carlos had this to add, “The system of charting the issues and the pages where to find the case law is very useful during the time-crunch at the MPT. This proved invaluable. Also, the 50+ pages presented provided every possible example imagined. As if that was not all, I was provided with access to every MPT (with model answer) that was tested during the last 10 years. What else can I ask for?”
Well, Carlos, you could ask for audios, videos, and test tips posted online regularly. And you’d get them!
How Helpful Is the Reed Bar Review Course Overall?
We hear this again and again from law students who turn to Reed Bar Review for help in securing their success the first time on their bar exam: Traditional bar tutoring products are generally not based on real bar exam material and questions. Time spent 1-on-1 is minimal, and the tools used just don’t cut it. So how did Carlos feel about his overall experience? Read what he said!
“Having taken other courses before Reed, I knew that the level of confidence I had while taking the test was well founded. Reed Bar Review (RBR) taught me how to write, and boosted my MBE performance in my three weakest (areas)…RBR has done their job.”
Carlos found the essay critiques, the specialized/remedial MBE questions, and the mnemonics to be incredibly helpful to his learning style. He was blown away by the 10 years worth of MPT and MEE, the charts right from MEE, and personal coaching. It all adds up to our bar exam students scoring the highest pass rate in the nation.
We Always Want To Know How We Can Improve
But Carlos had an interesting take on that idea, “Do not improve, because that will take out of your mental game…It is I as a student that is here to improve, and you are delivering an outstanding product and service.”
When Carlos finished evaluating our methods, materials, and delivery, he mentioned that he had two goals. 1) To pass his bar exam with confidence 2) To encourage his friends to register with Reed Bar Review and guarantee their own success. Time for you to do the same!by
