I know I would not have passed the first time around had I not gotten into your program and run screaming from Barbri – so always feel free to pass my number along!

Bestmultis is an amazing bar prep product! I am not a typical learner (I have adhd and GAD and specific learning disorder) and this program by far has exceeded my expectations! It was clear and concise and made learning these areas of law more enjoyable. I would recommend this company to my family and friends.
Pompano Beach, FL
[After taking BarWinners with Shari Karney] I am reading things that I never knew about in your outline. Happy and shocked. Thank you.
As you know, I prepared with Barbri the first time and Personal Bar Prep with Jay Chavkin for my second time. Neither program came remotely close to your comprehensive course and amazing outlines.
I am so grateful that I prepared with BestMultis.
I want to thank you for helping me pass the February 2010 Bar Exam. I took so many courses and tutors [BarBri, Cal Bar Tutorial with Paul Pfau, BarPassers, AdaptiBar, MicroMash, PMBR, and the book called Strategies and Tactics for the MBE] and it didn’t help until I took your course. I never thought that I can actually enjoy doing MBEs and essays until I started doing your MBEs and using your approach for the essays. I strongly believe that your course made a difference in me passing the bar.
I wish I met you years ago and did not waste all my money and time on other tutors and courses.
Your approach was night and day with how I felt prepared and confident in answering the MBE’s compared to Flemings.
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for showing me the tools to understand what learning the law is all about. I have taken a few courses and BestMultis honestly offer the best one there, I really mean it.
Being a repeat taker this is the first time I actually had control.
BestMultis is the best bar review course ever. It beats BarPassers and Barbri by a long shot.
I just wanted to let you know that I spoke to a prospective student about you. I let him know that BARBRI (having taken the course before) had NOTHING on BestMultis.
I went through your contracts and torts outlines- they are such easy reads. Excellent job. And, you are right- WAY more thorough than Conviser. THANKS!
I have to say this is a very “eye-opening” experience. I never realized how much “simple” substantive knowledge I was missing when I studied last time [with Cal Bar Tutorial and Paul Pfau]. It took me a little while to go through all the questions but I am glad I did. I am happy with an 84% on my first pass and ecstatic that my score will potentially get better from this point going forward.
I am interested in having my bar exam answers reviewed (both essays and PT’s). I am taking BarBri, but I am looking for an outside perspective on where I went wrong.
I realize that it is well late – I contracted with another bar exam tutor [Lisa Duncanson of Bar Exam Guru] who has not come through for me. Is there any way you or your staff would be willing to do this?
Thanks for all your help and encouragement. You are everything in a bar tutor that [Lisa] Duncanson isn’t.
Someone pointed out your site to me on Facebook. I have started looking at your model answers for Feb 2011. I really like them. They are much more thorough than Kaplan. Kaplan hasn’t even done the model answers for these recent exams.
I have outlines from Gilbert’s, Black Letter, BARBRI, Flemings, the interactive tape series, the Taft Law School forum, as well as some downloaded through internet searches, and I can promise you that your outline is the best I have encountered so far. I am using yours almost exclusively to study for my upcoming finals this December as well as for the Baby Bar prep in June. I especially like your “MBE Tips” and “Hot Topics” pointers.
In short, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain with BestMultis.
Just dropping a note to say Evidence is not that bad after all, thanks to your outline. I was trying to figure out why your outline reads better than the Conviser and I decided it’s because it doesn’t look much like an outline – you write in paragraph form, you don’t have too many sub points and bulleted lists, and so it kind of reads like a story. Which is easier to process than a list of information. Just my two cents.
Move over Barbri!!! BestMultis is going to take over!!!
Having forced myself to read the Barbri outlines for Civil Procedure and Remedies and Community Property, it made me realize what a disadvantage most have in not learning the law from your outlines.
This has been a completely different experience [than BarBri] and I’m SO thankful for that!!
Regarding the P.R. outline, I like how you break everything down – and weave in case law/CA law. Your outlines are MUCH more user friendly than I remember Barbri’s to be. Made me feel so much better – honestly.
So, I’m studying with some friends from law school today and realizing just how ahead of the curve and confident you have helped make me. One of my friends is in Barbri and one is in Kaplan. They were having trouble distinguishing between two very similar torts questioned and I explained exactly why the answers were the way they were (different defendants meant different answers to if the duty was breached). All the tips and advice have sunk in more than I realized (and even got to use the “if two answers are saying the same thing, it probably means they’re both wrong” thing!).
So thank you. I am SO grateful to have all your help, tips, and resources for this exam. Feeling confident!
After taking Barbri, I definitely had my concerns that maybe I would never or could never pass, but your program gave me the tools necessary to handle business.
Anyone and everyone that asks me about my experience in BestMultis receive rave reviews, especially regarding that coveted MBE outline.
What makes BestMultis different and the best!
After taking Paul Pfau [Cal Bar Tutorial], BarBri, and Kaplan’s 3-day MBE course, I realized that the most helpful aspect of BestMultis is the idea that memorizing rules is irrelevant. The real deal is to understand, truly understand the concept.
The best example I can think of is the idea of fixture filings…the rule is easy to memorize, but the idea is foreign until you explain where it stands compared to a PMM/mortgage and subsequent loans. Then the big picture JUST MAKES SENSE (that “a-ha!” Moment).
Your outlines are great at this because you introduce the concept (whatever it may be under the subject), state the rule briefly, then follow up with real life “for example” situations. This makes it easier to understand.
This approach helped me understand concepts that I (falsely) believed I knew but only had memorized.
I truly don’t think I would have ever passed the bar without your prep course! Starting even months before I signed up with your course you shot me over a mortgage outline for me to review. I knew after looking over that couple page document that your fashion at covering a topic was gonna be right up my alley!
I took Barbri straight out of law school. First shot- fail. I then took the 2nd chance Barbri class for free, FAIL #2. Third try I went off my own material (old Barbri stuff) and did some Kaplan Multiple choice questions, FAIL.
Fourth and Final try was with you! It was BestMultis that got me to pass the exam!
So now I see how this all goes: not only is your outline tailored exactly after [deleted], but the questions in the BestMBE [BestMultis] website emulate exactly what your explanations say, subject by subject. This then builds a solid foundation with regards to exactly what the examiners ask, and how they ask it.
This is an ‘obvious’ approach, but ironically, not one of the courses out there (Barbri, Kaplan, et al) follows this pattern, which is exactly the way it should be done.
I’m pretty pissed for having failed last time because I had the wrong study approach, but excited that I get to take it a second time with the right approach, and I will pass.
Yesterday, I spoke with a friend, I told him what a difference taking your bar review program [One-Timers] in comparison with other programs. I previously took Barbri & a Bar program with Thomas Jefferson Law School [BarSecrets with Dennis Saccuzzo] – One-Timers was the best obviously 😄.
I really felt like these MBE questions. It is my feeling that the more I get used to this approach to MBE’s, the sharper I will get at them. I personally feel that today they were so much more informative and helpful then the ones I have been used to from PMBR! So far today I have done 22 and was happy to see that I got 18 correct. I am doing them using your method.
I just wanted to let you know that I think your program is AWESOME!! I pretty much abandoned Barbri. I still work full time and I get so much more out of following your videos/lectures/questions in the short amount of time I have for studying.
This was my third time sitting for the bar. My score didn’t change much from the first time to the second. I took Barbri (twice) as well as supplemental one on one essay tutoring through Flemings. I felt both Barbri and Flemings were adequate but clearly neither one was really doing the trick for me. I was putting in the work, but not seeing a huge increase in my score.
It wasn’t until about half way through the One-Timers course that I realized how lacking the other programs were. I know different things work for different people but what made things really click for me was its unique approach. It’s almost difficult to describe but essentially the focus is on critical thinking and truly just developing the ability to see clearly exactly what it is the bar examiners are asking. That may sound a bit abstract but that’s essentially the core of its method. No checklists, no memorization, no gimmicks.
Another thing I found extremely valuable was the fact that the course eliminates things from its outlines that have NEVER been tested… my Barbri outlines are full of concepts that are just not really testable and the massive amounts of pages to memorize were just so overwhelming. Jason knows the exam inside out and only teaches you what you actually need to know to pass. He’s also very dynamic and interactive during his lectures which is a huge plus. I never once felt bored or zoned out.
With BarBri lectures I would find myself rewinding constantly because I would realize I had no idea what the lecturer just said for the last 5 minutes but in the One-Timers’ class I always felt completely focused- in towards the end when I would normally start to burn out with other programs.
Like I said, it’s hard to put into words, but One-Timers really just approaches the Bar exam in a way completely different (or at least felt completely different to me) than any of the other programs I’ve been through. Obviously the proof remains to be seen in November once results are released, but I can say without hesitation that I would recommend his course to anyone in a heartbeat.
I read and re-read the model answers and analyses and found them very helpful – more helpful than Barbri. I missed issues on the bar because I just didn’t know the law well enough the first time around.
BarBri had me spinning my wheels trying to emulate completely unrealistic practice answers to my detriment. We’ll see how it goes this time around – I have a lot more time to apply a better way. Thank you, again.
I just want to tell you that your outline is the best I ever seen. I finally understand Covenants, Equitable Servitude’s, etc… thanks to you. It’s better than long outline of Barbri because its shorter and you still explain each element unlike other outlines that just give the elements without explaining e.g. covenants running with the lands elements, like intent you go into an explanation of that.
Your MBE tips make the MBE seem more doable and I am learning to prioritize sub topics. Thank you for your generosity I think this outline will be the key for me to pass the Bar. And your MBE best program [BestMultis] is teaching me a lot. I am learning that if I see plaintiff is seeking equity I got to look out for equitable servitude’s in the answer choice.
I can’t believe it’s finally my turn to write one of these “Thank you” emails that will inevitably and hopefully go up on your website.
Your entire course was wonderful to say the very least. Your Multi-state outlines are the best out there because you spent so much time and effort filtering useful information, bar-specific law.
I was blown away by your Best-Multis MBE online program because it was so detailed and it was a part of the learning process rather than just a random test of each subject (ahem AdaptiBar). Your confidence and wisdom translated to all of your students, and you gave it to me straight.
There was no BS, no fluff, the bar is going to be hard and you mentally prepared us for it.
I know you get a lot of stressed out emails, so I thought I’d send you a different kind. Last year I was scoring 50 out of 100 on Barbri’s practice exams. And I was so frustrated and I did not improve much seeing as how I got a 116 on the actual exam.
Yesterday I got 87 of the 100 right. From what I’ve reviewed so far, most of the ones I got wrong, I just need to refresh my knowledge on the law. Basically, I wanted to thank you for helping me change my way of thinking and say I am so happy I signed up with BestMultis. I can really feel myself changing the way I approach the problems and how to understand what the problem is asking. I’m not so terrified of taking the MBEs anymore. Hope you are having a nice day. Respectfully,
Your videos are great, so much easier to understand than Barbri professors! I almost feel sorry for anyone who didn’t take your class!
