Should I supplement BarMax with Adaptibar?

Postby Cans25 » Thu Aug 22, 2019 9:38 am

I am taking the 2020 February Tennessee UBE.

I graduated law school in 2000 and took and passed the NH and MA bars. I moved to TN and even with 19 years experience I do not qualify for admission on motion because I’ve worked part time while being a stay at home mom the last few years, so I have no choice but to take the bar. Needless to say, everything is different.

I am starting to study now because I have three young kids, with lots of activities and also am trying to set up my law office (I’m planning to open my own practice soon). So I don’t have 8 or more hours a day to study.

I signed up for BarMax because it seems the most flexible and I can do it in smaller chunks over a longer period of time, unlike Barbri or the like which is more intensive short term studying.

My question is, should I supplement with Adaptibar, or will I just be getting duplicates of the questions in BarMax? I would like more questions than what BarMax gives (roughly 1300).

If I should also do Adaptibar, anyone have a referral code they care to share? Thank you!

Both of these programs primarily use the questions that have been licensed by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) so most likely you'll be seeing a lot of duplicates. It's possible that there are some questions that were created by each company (especially in Civ Pro) but for the most part I'd advise against buying both. At the very least wait to see whether you need more questions after working through all the questions on BarMax. It might be tough just to get through those!

I agree with SilvermanBarPrep. One should be enough, as the two programs overlap. If you're really looking for sheer number of questions, AdaptiBar is your program. Otherwise, BarMax should be fine.
