I just got my results and I am happy to say that I passed with a 331 (168 mbe/163 written). The last couple of weeks I was averaging 75-80% on mbe practice sets. I obviously over-studied but I am glad that I passed.

I never scored higher than a 62% on my practice MBE, and I received a 151 on the actual test. I know it's not amazing, but I passed. I'm sure that it's difficult waiting for your results, but I am confident you all did great.

This is good to read.

CONGRATS! That's awesome to hear and an amazing score. So you'd say that Themis PQ's were harder than the actual test based on your score?

I am not sure if they were harder or not because of the scaling and experimental questions. I actually felt like there were more questions on the mbe that I just had no idea what the answer was (especially some civ pro questions). On the other hand, the Themis questions felt "trickier" in that I would sometimes think I knew the answer for sure and would get it wrong.

Similar outcome here. 79% average on the practice questions, 174 on the live test. I felt reasonably sure of my answers on about 160 questions on the actual exam, and some element of guessing between 2 or 3 answers on the other 40.

The actual questions seemed about the same overall difficulty, but in different ways from the Themis practice questions. As noted by the prior post, more questions which seemed totally unfamiliar and not covered in the Themis materials (experimental?), but fewer questions with trick answers.

If I recall I got my books sometime around March for the July 2017 course. They'll email you before sending them out.

Passed the bar in GA. I only completed 51% of the course* and I had a job where I worked 30+ hours a week. Also, I went on a week long vacation in between. Anyone who says you can’t work during bar prep is full of baloney. Totally possible!

*Themis wasn’t my only source of study material. I also used critical pass and practiced MBE questions on bar prep hero.

Themis was worth every penny. Passed in Texas comfortably. Do the work and you'll be good to go!

I didn't complete the course and I passed with a very comfortable margin. I did supplement the course with real me questions and Kaplan civ pro questions. The Texas civ pro short answers were right on point.
