BarMax is free to download, giving you access to our MPRE course featuring audio lectures, black-letter law outlines, flashcards and real MPRE questions from previous exams.

The first section of Civil Procedure (i.e. “Subject Matter Jurisdiction”) is also free, regardless of your course. This section includes an audio lecture by the legendary Arthur Miller, flashcards, and real MBE questions from previous bar exams.

Unlike many of our competitors, BarMax proudly shares our bar exam pass rates:

You’ll get immediate access to our comprehensive California or UBE course for just $2495. Supplements, like our bank of 1750+ real MBE questions, start at just $399.99. BarMax offers the most competitive packages for bar exam review, allowing all students to gain immediate access to high-quality bar exam review without the need for bar loans.

BarMax is now also available online, so you can access all of your materials from your computer in addition to in-app.

Build test-taking confidence by studying with over 1,750 real MBE questions, plus real essays and real performance tests licensed directly from the NCBE (not made-up questions, like those used in other bar review courses).

With on-demand audio lectures by notable Harvard Law School-educated professors, BarMax helps you learn on-the-go (no Internet required) and at your pace, so you can ditch the classroom, and make bar prep fit your schedule.

Analytics that automatically track your progress and show you where to spend precious time.

If you fail the bar exam after completing a BarMax course, we’ll refund your money when you share your official results within 2 weeks with proof of purchase of another bar review course. It’s that simple.

Barbri’s co-founder and former President recommends BarMax.

“After leaving Barbri after 20 years, I thought I would start another bar review course. And then I discovered BarMax . . . The materials are first class. The lecturers are first class. The content is geared to the bar examination . . . I highly recommend BarMax." -Stan Chess

“I took the Cal Bar four times before I passed. I served as a representative for a widely popular study course. I studied for the Cal Bar using this well-known course without success. I was turned onto BarMax through a friend who used the same program and failed the Cal Bar three times. After using BarMax for the first time, my friend passed, as did I. I couldn’t recommend BarMax any higher. It’s affordable, convenient, and effective. I wouldn’t be a lawyer today without BarMax.”
- Shannon Ripple, Humphreys College of Law

“The cost savings are great, but in my opinion, the real advantage is that the BarMax course itself is simply better than the competition.”
- Susan Brown, University of Toronto

I used BarMax to study for the CA FYLSE. That test has a pass rate of about 20%, so I was terrified of failing and knew I needed a study program. BarMax did a fantastic job. The outlines and lectures are concise but include everything you need to know. The included essay grading is also helpful. I loved that it's accessible as an app so I could do practice questions anywhere when I had a free moment. Thanks BarMax! I'll see you again in 2 years for the real bar!

Was working well, but now... in the last week or so I've had problems playing the lectures. I'm unable to press "play" (it just stays stuck at 00:00) and sometimes the length of the lecture itself comes up as being 7700 minutes long — regardless of topic I'm trying to listen to. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no luck. Is this a bug from the recent update? 😳

My previous review was deleted in 30 seconds. The app has no use. The barmax website is great, but this app is totally useless. If you try to access anything beyond the introduction, it will ask for your credit card for a $0.00 plan. Then it will give you an error after taking your credit card information. This is likely a scam disguising as barmax.
