Woman Finally Passes California Bar Exam by Using BarMax Bar Exam Review Course

Share Article

After five failed attempts, Marsha Teasely enrolled in BarMax CA and finally passed the California bar exam.

BarMax made the difference, helping me pass the California bar exam on my sixth attempt.

Marsha Teasely graduated from Peoples College of Law in 2009 and subsequently failed the California bar exam five times in a row. This is not out of the ordinary: repeat bar examinees from Peoples College of Law had a 0.8% success rate on the bar exam over a ten-year period ending in 2007.

On her sixth attempt, Marsha ignored the conventional bar exam review programs and enrolled in the BarMax California bar exam review course for the iPad.

With a renewed level of confidence stemming from BarMax’s clear, concise study materials, Marsha passed on her first try with BarMax:

“I spent thousands of dollars on various bar exam review courses, including a one-on-one tutor that cost more than my entire legal education. I failed the California bar exam five times using five different methods of bar exam review.”

Marsha is yet another success story for the BarMax team. In 2009, a small group of Harvard Law School students noticed an absurd monopoly in the bar prep space, held by an unchallenged leader with a non-evolving product. In response, these students teamed up with Harvard Law alumni to launch BarMax, a revolutionary bar exam review course available on iOS.

The mission: democratize bar prep by embracing new technologies to provide the very best bar exam review courses at a fraction of the cost normally associated with these courses.

“We are extremely proud of Marsha and we constantly strive to help more bar exam repeaters finally break through and pass the exam. As Marsha demonstrates, most repeat examinees are not failing the exam because of a lack of intelligence – it is often due to a lack of top-notch study materials,” said Mehran Ebadolahi, co-founder and CEO of TestMax Inc., the company that developed BarMax.

Unlike other bar exam courses, BarMax includes only real questions from previous bar exams. It also uses the revolutionary technology behind the iPhone and iPad to offer bar exam review courses at a fraction of the cost compared to its competitors.

Marsha agrees, “I believe BarMax made the difference, helping me pass the California bar exam on my sixth attempt. I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to the BarMax team. I knew from the moment I signed up for BarMax, there were people who were there to ensure my success, believed in me as an individual, and taught me in a way that I, personally, could understand."

The BarMax team has offered to donate a copy of BarMax to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a Peoples College of Law graduate who failed the bar exam four times.
