With the proliferation of smart phones and tablets, more and more companies are developing apps to help students prepare for standardized exams including the Bar exam. One such company is California based BarMax. Founded by Harvard Law School alumni and iOS developers, BarMax is a comprehensive bar review tool available as an application for the iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini, or iPod Touch. With its ease of use and high quality content, BarMax makes it convenient to study for the bar exam from virtually anywhere without lugging around heavy bar review books.
Currently, BarMax offers content for the California and New York Bar exams, as well as for the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE), the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE), the MPRE. In addition, BarMax offers the “Baby Bar” edition to help students prepare for the First-Year Law Student’s Examination.
Like other bar review courses, the BarMax course offers a massive amount of practice questions and study materials. And like other bar review courses, BarMax provides actual bar exams questions with model answers as practice material for its students. However, BarMax distinguishes itself from other bar review courses by drawing its course lecturers from the pool of law professors trained by Harvard Law School. Its formula has proven effective as BarMax boasts a bar exam pass rate that is significantly higher than state averages. According to its website, the pass rate for students who used the California BarMax app was 73% for 2012, compared to a statewide average of 50.3%. For New York BarMax app users, the 2012 pass rate was 83%, compared to 61.9%
