Do you need a tutor or bar prep course in order to succeed on your bar exam the first time you sit for that exam? There is mounting evidence that nearly every law student needs a formal bar preparation course or a tutor.
Pass rates are plummeting, and traditional bar prep companies are just not delivering success to their customers. If you don’t want to become a failure statistic, proper preparation, keyed to your needs and study-style, is essential.
As graduation approaches, you have a lot on your plate. Maybe it feels like a survival technique to put off some decisions and to condense your thinking process in making others. Researching the myriad of options for bar exam prep may feel like one thing you can put off. Why not just register for whatever program some of your peers have talked up?
We advise you not to follow the herd—you’re not sheep. You’ve put years into your law school education, and jumping onboard a widely advertised commercial, traditional, cookie-cutter bar review can kill your dreams.
It’s entirely likely that you need exercises, study materials, practise, and personal attention that simply isn’t part of most courses.
Here are some things to consider:
- Have your grades been high average or above, consistently?
- Have you taken tests easily, without much stress, and found that self-preparation has gotten you a strong score on every test?
- Are you really good at tough multiple choice questions?
- Is reading a ton of material easy for you and do you retain information consistently?
- Do you write well on the fly, with good structure, excellent organization, and a skill for isolating key points?
- Is your school’s pass rate solidly high over the past three or four years?
If your answer to any of these questions is “No,” you’ll find the bar exam to be more than a little challenging, and without proper, personalized preparation, you stand a better than average chance of failure. Your stress level, alone, could scuttle you.
And What About the Law School You’re Graduating From?
There are a lot of personal factors that figure into your readiness for passing the bar exam, but some of the factors that impact success are critical issues that are beyond your control.
One expert says you should be concerned, “If you go to a law school that is unaccredited, ranked on the lower end of the spectrum, or in some way non-traditional, e.g. the school is brand new and there are no bar pass statistics, or the curriculum is entirely online, etc. or if the usual pass rates for the 3Ls who graduate from your school are below average for the state you’re in…”
Low pass rates could mean that a school is not adequately preparing its graduates to pass the bar exam on the first try, and that should always be the goal. Study the success rate of your school, and the trend over a few recent years. If the student who sit for the bar exam are failing as often as passing, or worse, failing more often than passing, you have no choice but to seek extra help and support.
Keep in mind that Reed Bar Review thoroughly prepares you for the material you will encounter on your bar exam. Founder/CEO Col. Hugh Reed has taken and passed more than two dozen bar exams in varying jurisdictions, and no one is better informed than he about what to expect on a bar exam.
