How long does a membership to Zen Bar Review last?
The online membership lasts from the date of purchase until the date of your bar exam which is listed on the purchase receipt.
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 for the legal concepts. Zen Bar Review is a supplement to a traditional bar exam preparation program.
Do traditional bar exam preparation courses cover wellness concepts for bar exam students?
No; not in depth. Your health and wellness is not the focus of their services. That is why we created Zen Bar Review so that you would have this information for health/wellness/test anxiety.
Can test anxiety potentially prevent a person from passing the bar exam?
Yes. That is why we feel that the membership program with Zen Bar Review is so important for bar exam students.
Are only certain exams or certain states applicable to Zen Bar Review?
No. Zen Bar Review is for any bar exam in any state. We recommend that you use Zen Bar Review’s membership program during the months leading up to your largest and most stressful bar exam test date (such as the MBE, etc.).
If I defer my bar exam to another test date, how does that affect my Zen Bar Review membership?
Please see the “Refund Policy” answer. The membership to Zen Bar Review lasts for six months from the date of purchase so please use the resources during the time that you purchased Zen Bar Review.
Who should I contact if I have a question?
You may email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a question as a prospective customer and you can email email@example.com if you have a question about a current membership. There is also a Contact Form on the website as well as phone numbers, etc. We answer the questions in the order that they arrive on Monday through Friday excluding holidays. Please be patient; your understanding is appreciated.
What resources are we allowed to download?
You may download the MP3 (audio) and PDF (printed documents). But you may NOT download any videos since these are copyright and intellectual property of Bar Exam Inc d/b/a Zen 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 happens if I forgot my username or password?
Please request another username or password online at the log in page of the membership area.
Does Zen Bar Review offer tutoring of the law such as for the MBE, MPRE, state multiple/choice, state essays, etc.?
No. Zen Bar Review does not offer any legal tutoring. Zen Bar Review only offers an online wellness membership program with 24/7 access. We are building another website called Zip Bar Review (www.zipbar.com) which will tutor the legal concepts in an online membership format. However, Zip Bar Review is under construction and not yet available. Please check back later to see when Zip Bar Review is available.

Am I expected or required to contact any of the professionals in the membership area?
No. Everything in this membership program is self-contained in your membership area. However, if you feel that you want to explore the information further with a particular professional, you may contact that professional and inquire if he/she is available to work with you separately. Please understand that all of the professionals are very busy and they have their own clients. Therefore, please be very courteous and patient if you contact them. Please make sure to attend any appointments that you make with them or cancel within 24 hours if necessary. Zen Bar Review is not involved in the transaction if you work with one of the professionals outside of our membership area. The professionals are very excited about working with bar exam students outside of the Zen Bar Review program but their availability is subject to their own schedule.
