Sooo I've passed the MO bar with a total of 295, so I guess BarBri is alright. Overpriced, but alright. I've completed 76% of the assigned material, and a bunch of side-assignment that were given after each of the evals.
Conviser Mini-Review is amazing, because after my civ pro in law school, I was still awful at it, and then I've read the conviser outline and it made soo much sense, and turned Civ Pro to one of the better subjects on which I consistently tested high on barbri 18 questions sets. Didn't help much with Evidence though, Evidence just screws with my brain on paper, I need RL examples and experience to become better at it.
The simulated MBE questions were nothing like the actual MBE questions, or so it seemed to me. I would probably buy Adaptibar or take some NCBE sample tests to complement BarBri, if I would to take the BAR again.
Lectures were a mixed bag -For example, during property lecture we got a free commercial of some book that Paula Franzese wrote. WTH do I need that for? Or the overwhelming amount of 90s pop song references.... Or the utterly useless contracts fill-along outline. Chuck Shonholtz was overall pretty good at explaining things, while Guzman was one of the dullest guys I've witnessed out there, because he would speed up his speech when explaining something that I would try to write-down, yet go to a snail's pace talking about something that was fluff. Oh, and I couldn't bring myself to finish watching conflict of laws, but I was burned out by that time. So yeah, some lectures were good, some were pretty meh.
I also bought the one-day review of the mbe subjects for $99 from Barbri, but ended up not using it after watching a few videos, and realizing that they weren't all that helpful and I'd rather go re-read conviser outlines again. Guzman's tips and tricks weren't all that useful on the exam as well. So overall, I'd say avoid the $99 review.
With regards to the much advertised and praised Barbri AMP: I found amp to be underwhelming, although I'd say that using it right after reading the conviser outline or re-writing the outline was a viable method of seeing how much information you retained.
The essays that BarBri had for UBE seemed to be spot on, and while I only wrote about 21 (?) total, I've outlined and re-wrote the law multiple times for 2/3 of all essays in the book.
Side note: lean-sheets were extremely helpful, because I suck at writing outlines.
So there's that - at least for UBE Barbri did its job, but being $500 more expensive than Themis even with the discount( I had a $750 discount from Barbri), and hearing overall positive things about Themis, I'd say go with whatever is cheaper.
