"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!"

Jennifer Poplin

"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."

Joshua Kay

"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."
