"I PASSED!!!!! I am so thankful for all your help, support and guidance during this process. Words cannot describe the joy I feel. I am getting married today. I checked the results during our wedding rehersal dinner last night. I was able to share this moment with my whole family, and large group of friends in town. I saw my mom cry tears of joy like never before. I have never seen her cry. You made all this possible and for that I am forever indebted. I always said that pass or fail, Bar Secrets was the best program anyone could take."
"Bar Secrets helped me pass the California bar exam on the first attempt. Their materials and methods helped me overcome my doubts, and to my surprise memorization was easier than I thought it would be. Thank you!"
"Thank you! I could not have done it without you guys. I really do believe in the program, and all I did was follow the schedule. It wasn't easy (and it made for some long days) but it worked. Without your support, I would not have made it."
"Based on high praise, I chose Bar Secrets to prepare me for the most intense test of my life: the California Bar Exam. I was not disappointed. I believe that Dennis Saccuzzo and Nancy Johnson's psychological approach applied to law, along with their emphasis on practice exams (under exam conditions) and taking care of mind and body, was what resulted in me being a first-time bar passer. From the day one, I could tell they truly had a secret; they knew how to pass the California Bar Exam. I recommend Bar Secrets with all my might, and without reservation."
"I stumbled upon BarSecrets.com very late in my bar study, about two weeks out from the exam. Though I do not know yet whether or not I successfully passed the bar, I do know that if I did pass, it will be owing in no small part to the Power Video lectures and Proponics charts, which enabled me to focus my study and visualize the structure of the law that is most often tested on the bar. For visual learners especially, this is an essential part of bar study. I appreciated the big box program I enrolled in for what it offered - but while that was all blunt force, Proponics was surgical in approach - exactly what I needed when I needed it. If I am not successful this time, I will know exactly what to do - and Proponics will be a big part of it. I am truly grateful for the barsecrets materials and highly recommend them."
"I chose Bar Secrets for my preparation to the California Bar Exam 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. That was exactly what I found with Bar Secrets. Dennis, Nancy and Andrew are outstanding tutors, and they know very well what it takes to pass the CBX. They make you work extremely hard, but at the same time, they truly care about you, being approachable, supportive and friendly. I highly recommend Bar Secrets to everyone who wants to be successful with the CBX. Thank you so much guys!"
"I am writing to thank you for all your help this past exam administration. 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. I literally have been telling anyone and everyone I meet who is struggling to pass the exam. Thank you, thank you. I so appreciate it."
"California is originally home, and I so wanted to have a license in the state to help friends/family etc ... 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 I found your course through one of your student’s references. [She] 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. When you released your debriefs for the July 2018 bar exam, I genuinely felt like the superheroes had rushed onto the battlefield to join me in the fight. I didn’t feel alone. ... You guys are the difference maker. Many salutes to you."
"Thank you so much to the whole team of Bar Secrets for helping me to pass this CA July 2018 bar exam! Thank you Dr. Saccuzzo, Dr. Johnson, and Prof. Poplin for your incredibly amazing outlines, essay reviews, and for a real support! You are the best! Your program and approach and Adabtibar (MBE) helped me to pass this CA beast!"
"I passed the July 2018 bar exam! I wanted to thank you all for your help once again, it was tremendous! The Bar Secrets program is amazing - the syllabus was SO helpful along with the Proponics. I was not expecting Con law to be on the bar, but once I read the question I went back to writing out the Level 1 topics and remembering the flow of what to ask myself when proposed with a DCC question. I loved that the program included simulation testing days; I added the grading feedback and it was very helpful for me to see my strengths and weaknesses.T he videos were concise and to the point and the examples given throughout the videos are ones that stuck with me throughout the bar process. The memorization process was perfectly explained and made the process much more do-able. Overall the entire process was easy to follow and made as simple as possible for those sitting for the bar. I genuinely feel that you all cared for our success throughout this process and it has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!"
