We're excited you're here!
The July 2021 exam will be administered online July 27-28 . We are currently enrolling students for our California Bar Exam review course for the July exam. We are also enrolling students for private tutoring and those students may begin preparing now if they choose–spots for private tutoring are very limited so if you’re interested, don’t delay in contacting us for more information.
Students who enroll now are encouraged to join our early bird weekend sessions that run now through mid-May.
We are taking deposits for our February 2022 review course and beyond.
Call or drop us an email today to discuss your plans for the upcoming exam. We enroll a limited number of students in order to keep our classes personal so we do fill up quickly.
Personal Bar Prep Enrollment FAQ
The July 2021 bar exam course will officially begin in May, however we are enrolling students now and offer a weekend early bird program to all enrollees between now and May. This program includes short weekly assignments and brief Zoom meetings to discuss those assignments with your instructor, Jay Chavkin.
Our bar review course runs for six weeks.
We are a live interactive bar review course and have always offered our course both in a classroom and streamed online. In order to protect the safety of our students, we have transitioned our course to be 100% online. This won’t change the live interactive nature of our course. Everyone will be able to participate and to ask questions in our virtual classroom hosted on the Zoom video conferencing platform.
Other courses put materials online, ask students to watch videos alone, work with online modules and programs, and give very limited access to a real person. Ours is a live online course that meets multiple times a week with lectures, meetings and workshops with opportunities to interact and ask questions. You will always hear the instructor and other students in the virtual classroom and your instructor is always available for questions during the sessions. You also contact us for help by phone and email at any time.
No. There are no hidden costs at Personal Bar Prep. We do not have a complicated pricing structure–no gold or platinum levels, no add-ons for small group meetings or graded essays or contact with the instructor.
Our program includes, and always has included:
- Weekly live online small group essay writing workshops
- Weekly live online MBE workshops
- Live online lectures covering all bar exam subjects
- Live online performance test workshops
- Graded essays and practice tests with feedback
- All necessary books, outlines, MBE questions and flashcards
- A detailed study schedule
- We will also send a headset to anyone who needs one in order to participate online
No, we don’t charge extra for contacting your instructor directly. Many programs do! You can email, call or text with a question about your studies, about the lecture you just heard, or maybe you just need some encouragement or help with organizing your time.
Jay is here for you when you need it. It’s the personal in Personal Bar Prep.
Yes. Private bar exam tutoring is available both exclusively and as a supplement to the full bar review course. While tutoring is not for everyone, it can be helpful for students that learn best in a one-on-one situation, students with learning disabilities, foreign-educated attorneys, multiple repeaters with very specific problems to address and those struggling with test anxiety. Please check out our California bar exam tutor page or call 213-985-1977 for additional information.
We take payment by cash, check, all major credit cards (except Amex) as well as PayPal, Venmo and Zelle. We can invoice your law firm for payment upon request. A payment plan is also available.
We offer a very reasonable payment plan to those students who need one. Once the nonrefundable $500 deposit has been paid, your payments are equally distributed in three to four predetermined payment dates. Please inquire about the payment plan when you enroll.
We offer a credit for the deposits of most big name bar review companies with proof of deposit and will apply this amount to your course fee with Personal Bar Prep. Some limitations apply. Please contact us for details.
Yes! If you sign up in a group of three or more, we offer a discount to all group members. We also do our best to make accommodations for all group members to be placed together in a small group for the session if you would like to work together.
We also offer a discount to members of the armed forces and veterans.
Our goal is to see you on the pass list! Because we are a small, live course and not an easily reproduced digital course in a box, we are unable to offer free repeats, but we do offer our course for half price to those who want to return. If you’ve seen other live courses offering money back guarantees, read the fine print. There’s a fair chance you won’t qualify. Buyer beware.
It's Your Time to Pass. Let's Get Started!
Contact us today about your interest in enrolling with Personal Bar Prep. Enrollment in our bar review course is limited to keep our classes small and personal.
