Testimonials

"I love your course. I've recommended it to several other students, and I will continue to recommend it."

---------

"The lectures were concise and focused on the important points, which allowed me to learn the new areas of law with the least effort, and efficiently refresh my memory on the other areas."

---------

"[The course is] more condensed and focused on the basics of the black letter law, and on helping students develop a test writing strategy."

---------

"I really liked it when the instructor did more than teach the subject as it would be taught in law school. I liked when they gave tips about the way questions on previous tests were handled and advice for choosing the right answer if the question was confusing."

---------

"I was glad to find this review to help me prepare for the exam and refresh my memory . . . at a price that did not break the bank."
