HOW IS ZIP BAR REVIEW DIFFERENT FROM ADAPTIBAR???

***If you want a TEACHING/TUTORING Program with 30+ hours of MBE Tutoring Videos that have a PROVEN TRACK RECORD TO INCREASE MBE SCORES, Zip Bar Review’s  MBE Cram Course is the CHOICE!***

However, if you want a FANCY Quiz Program, AdaptiBar would be the choice since Quizzes are AdaptiBar’s core business.

Zip Bar Review uses a QUESTION-BASED APPROACH to TUTOR licensed MBE questions.

With Zip Bar Review, WE TEACH YOU!

Professor Gachet TUTORS the questions and answer explanations along with the nuances, details and ways to avoid being tricked on the Bar Exam.

Professor Gachet’s shares her talents by making complex concepts simple and easy-to-understand!!!!!

With AdaptiBar, YOU TEACH YOURSELF by reading the answer explanations.

Zip Bar Review uses the MBE-OPE licensed MBE questions and AdaptiBar uses the new and the OLD MBE licensed questions.

We focus on the MBE-OPE questions with LICENSED ANSWER EXPLANATIONS because we have seen that OLD MBE questions can confuse students when they sit for the Bar Exam!

Zip Bar Review and AdaptiBar are both SUPPLEMENTS to a traditional bar course.

Many students come to Zip Bar Review AFTER taking SEVERAL traditional bar courses and AFTER spending thousands of dollars with the traditional bar courses.  Other students come to Zip Bar Review in the LAST semester of law school to get an advantage on the Bar Exam!

The Zip Bar Review students are very happy using the helpful traditional bar course questions for the main group of Federal Civil Procedure questions.

Zip Bar Review also has a new Quiz Program of the licensed MBE-OPE Questions (400+ Questions of MBE-OPE 1, 2, 3 and 4 sets of Questions).

Zip Bar Review’s core business is a TEACHING/TUTORING Program of amazing step-by-step MBE videos!

If you want to LEARN HOW to get POINTS on the MBE, LEARN HOW to Choose the Correct Answer, LEARN HOW to ELIMINATE the WRONG Answers, etc, then Zip Bar Review is for you!!

Do you ONLY recommend your online course for bar exam students?

No. We recommend that bar exam students take advantage of another large bar exam preparation program in addition to Zip Bar Review. Also, if you need help with test anxiety, we have an online membership program at Zen Bar Review for an online wellness program tailored to bar exam preparation.

Does an online membership with Zip Bar Review include an online membership to Zen Bar Review?
No, they are purchased separately from each website. We recommend that you purchase both the membership to Zip Bar Review and Zen Bar Review.

Are only certain exams or certain states applicable to Zip Bar Review?
Zip Bar Review has an online membership course for the MBE (Multistate Bar Examination) so this membership course applies to any state that requires the MBE.

If I defer my bar exam to another test date, how does that affect my Zip Bar Review membership?
Please see the “Refund Policy” answer. The membership to Zip Bar Review lasts for six months from the date of purchase so please use the resources during the time that you purchased Zip Bar Review.

What resources are we allowed to download?
You may download the PDF (printed documents). But you may NOT download any videos since these are copyright and intellectual property of Bar Exam Inc d/b/a Zip Bar Review. In addition, the membership resources are only allowed to be used by the enrolled bar exam student (Registered User) and may not be shared with anyone else.

What is the “One More Time Guarantee?”

Zip Bar Review offers a free “One More Time Guarantee” Program for Registered Users who do not pass the bar examination the first time and meet the “One More Time Guarantee” qualifications.

Once qualified, the free “One More Time Guarantee” Program is limited to Bar Exam Inc providing the same type of Bar Exam Inc. bar exam review course which you enrolled to study for the bar exam you did not pass. The “One More Time Guarantee” is also restricted to the same state bar exam course and online materials (updated where available) for the examination you took but did not pass. Your free “One More Time Guarantee” Program must be completed within the next two (2) bar exam test dates offered for that particular bar exam you did not pass or within one (1) year of the bar exam you took but did not pass, whichever period is shorter, and does not include any upgrades, including supplemental workshops or a second set of books; however, new lecture handouts and online materials and videos are included if available. If you would like additional services or materials beyond the free repeat program, you are responsible for ordering, enrolling, and paying for such services or materials.
