Then just now I decide to double check that, and NOPE you have to have 70%+ on the questions. How many people fail with 70%+ on those 1'300 questions, I doubt not as many as people with % below! Literally so demotivating because I'm pretty sure I can get everything right from this point on and reaching 70% would be difficult if not impossible.
I think the complaint is a person is using the program without seeing any benefit, but in the back of his/her mind they are thinking - "ok, this may not help me and I may not get all the way through it this time BUT I can try this again, perhaps starting earlier next time!" Only to find out that the Adaptibar "gaurantee" is really difficult to achieve - and I agree.
Though I fully endorse the program, I am using it for the first time this year (after using BarMax is the past and enjoying it) I will agree that the guarantee is a big shoddy, bordering on not even worth offering. 70% accumulative is a pretty high threshold, not only do you have to get through all 1750 questions (which for many people doing a traditional bar program would be a chore, but for someone like me who is using AB as a core component without another program relatively simple if you start early enough) but you must score 70%+ I can feel the frustration for someone who maybe didnt do their due dilligence in reading the promise.
Id be really curious to see how many people hit the threshold - I am aware of at least one person who appears to have reached that number on these boards, and based off of the National/State numbers I see through the program very, very few people are at an accumulative score of 70%+ which means very, very few get the guarantee of using the program again.
That all said, I am using it, I enjoy it, I endorse it and I feel very confident about the score I should get in just over a week, but when thinking about the guarantee/promise that Adaptibar offers it is pretty weak and applicable to a very finite set of students.
