Marino Bar Review

Postby Jdunn7043 » Thu May 03, 2018 3:15 pm

I've taken the exam a few times and used other materials but I haven't been successful. I've heard good things about Marino Bar Review but I'm wondering if anyone else has used their program for the exam. If so, can you please tell me about your experience with them?

I used their retaker program because I was in a similar situation. They really helped me with time management and what to focus on in terms of studying. The structure worked well for me because I didn't find myself overwhelmed with materials like I had with alternative prep programs.

Hi, could you share more about how the program was structured and how it helped with MEE/MPT prep at all? how many weeks did you use it for and how did it compare to a program like themis or kaplan for example? I am trying to choose between a non-traditional program like Marino combining it with Adaptibar, or investing in something like Themis. Thank you so much

I actually took Kaplan but I did not take Themis so I don't have personal info about it although a fried of mine did so I I have some idea. Marino in my case at least, did a great job of teaching me specific rules without making me rewatch the same basic long lectures all over again and what was different about it was that it actually shows you strategy that Kaplan did not at all - like how to write an essay from beginning to end with no correct law at all and still get what is basically a passing score by showing you how to incorporate any rule that you can make up into a passing-essay template they give you. It sounds weird but it is actually really simple when you learn and practice it. That improved my scores on 5 of the 6 essays. Marino was actually pretty comprehensive and they also raised my MBE score by about 11 points. I did not take a supplemental like Adaptibar, but I have heard pretty good things about it too. It seems like it would be almost fun to use.

I've heard things about almost every bar review course out there since students often take courses while they supplement with private tutoring. Marino has consistently scored well with my students. I honesty don't know how accurate this is since it's a very small sample, but I thought I'd add what I've been told.
