The schematic approach is one of our main pillars. In fact, our schemas' "branches" or "lines" are so iconic to us, we put them in our logo. The schematic approach is one of the main reasons why our students can learn easier and memorize faster.SEE SAMPLES NOW

How do you stop studying the law and start learning it?
Most big-box test prep companies equip you with thick outlines and long lectures and tell you to follow a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all plan.
The good news is that we don't do that.
When you study with us, you don't have to memorize 100-plus-page outlines or watch day-long videos. (How can you even possibly learn, let alone memorize, all that?) And you'll find we offer a much more personalized and tailored study plan.
Our founders were psychologists before they were attorneys. They innovated methods and materials based on sound brain-science principles, optimized to make learning easier and memorizing faster.
Below you can quickly learn about our three main principles and see the answers to the three most frequent questions we get.
To learn more about our system of memorization, why we started Bar Secrets, and who we are, and to see some samples of our system of learning, visit our About page.
Our programs are driven by three main principles.
This is a learning system based on cognitive science. We present the law in the very way your brain stores information.
Our programs are broken into phases, so that you will pass through the subject or lessons multiple times before the end.

Christian Acevedo, Attorney
"I had taken the California bar exam twice previously and failed. I tried studying Barbri outlines, but practicing full time and going from place to place with the military was enough to sink me and thwart my efforts. Then ... one of your students ... told me - “just do what Dr. Saccuzzo says!” It worked ... your personal approach and genuine demeanors go a long, long way. In particular, your voice-guided feedback on essays is above and beyond most of the other big box bar prep companies out there. ... I didn’t feel alone. ... You guys are the difference maker. Many salutes to you."
Pardis Bakheshi, Attorney
"I am writing to thank you for all your help ... I took this exam five times before passing and I firmly believe that I only passed because of your program, method, and mentorship. I have not stopped talking about the genius of Proponics, what your classes have to offer, and the wonderful grading feedback I gained from the course. Thank you, thank you. I so appreciate it."
Luis Blanquez, Attorney
"I chose Bar Secrets for ... two main reasons. First, because of their innovative and unique Powerlaw Program and Proponics interactive charts. This program combines structured interactive outlines, with concise and to-the-point lectures, together with hundreds of model answers to previous bar exam questions. Second, as a foreigner with no U.S. law background, I was looking for a solid program containing all the necessary materials to become an attorney in the US. Dennis, Nancy and Andrew are outstanding tutors ... They make you work extremely hard, but at the same time, they truly care about you, being approachable, supportive and friendly."
