You know those students in your law school class that are just effortlessly smart? And it doesn’t matter what they do to prepare for this daunting exam, they’ll pass? I wasn’t one of those students. So when I was shopping around bar prep companies, I knew I needed a little more guidance and structure.
I was sold on the Saturday classes, weekly assignments, and individualized attention. Combined, they helped me stay focused and on track. It was also apparent to me that Jason would always make himself available to explain/discuss just about anything relevant to the course. And believe me when I say I took advantage of that.
The course materials are simplified with endless examples which made things (1) easy to understand, and (2) difficult to forget. The support and preparation I received from Jason and his team throughout the 10 weeks of prep was second to none, and alleviated much of the stress surrounding bar prep.
Best decision I’ve made. Worth every penny.

I have been waiting to write this review since the moment I walked out of the July 2019 exam center. If you want to walk out of the exam center knowing you passed the bar exam, take advantage of One-Timers and everything it has to offer. Embrace the real and harsh criticism you are bound to get on your first graded essay you submit to Jason Tolerico, but also be ready to embrace and be proud of the improved grading and comments you’ll receive in all essays after that. Put in the hard work, do everything Jason and One-Timers tells you to do, and finish the bar exam without doubting yourself. I just learned that I passed the July 2019 California bar exam on my FIRST and ONLY attempt. Highly recommend this program to anyone testing in California!

I can’t thank Jason and the One-Timers team enough for all of their help and guidance while I prepped for the Feb 2018 bar. Taking his course was the best decision I ever made. After taking 3 months off work and following Barbri’s program to a T and failing the July 2018 bar I knew I needed something different. Studying for the bar is not a one sized fits all program, but Jason was there every step of the way, always available to take my calls at all hours of the day. He helped modify the program so I could juggle working full time while studying. It wasn’t easy but his instruction and the materials he provides are all you need to pass the California Bar exam! Just DO WHAT HE SAYS and put in the work and you are sure to succeed! Thank you Jason and One Timers for helping me achieve my goal of being a licensed California attorney!

I cannot say enough great things about One-Timers. The outlines provided are worth their weight in gold. Unlike other outlines from commercial courses that include outdated information that is no longer tested, the outlines provided by One-Timers are succinct, easy to read, and most importantly, contains the information that you absolutely have to know to succeed on the exam.
The beauty of this course is found in its simplicity. Jason uses his knowledge of the exam to prepare his outlines, and manages to explain rather difficult concepts in a simple, straight-forward manner.
California Bar Number #325603
This is the course to take if you want to pass the California Bar. I am an attorney licensed in three other states with nearly 20 years’ experience. I took the exam in February 2018 and failed. Determined to pass the second time, I called One-Timers. Jason and his staff spent considerable time with me to understand my situation and what went wrong on the exam before I made a commitment. The course materials are without equal. Jason’s Saturday lectures are invaluable, and he really is available 24/7. The feedback from the essay graders is very helpful. More than anything, this course helps you understand the exam and how to write for it (as well as how to tackle the MBE). They get a lot of credit for helping me pass the July exam. Highly recommended.

What makes One-Timers 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 One-Timers 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.
California Bar Number #304212
The material is excellent. Very thorough yet straightforward. It is very helpful because it is organized in a way (MBE Outline, Rules for Essays, the Final Act) that allows the students to prepare thoroughly.
The rules are explained with the purpose of helping you understand the rationale of the rule, as opposed to a mere statement of the law. For a foreign candidate (i.e. somebody who did not graduate with a JD from an American law school) as I am, this was very helpful. When I studied the outlines of some of your “corporate competitors” [BarBri, Paul Pfau of Cal Bar Tutorial], I just had to try to memorize the concepts, and that’s not a good idea in preparing for the California bar.
In fact, my essays did not improve regardless of who helped me (Barbri, Paul Pfau, other prep courses, BarGraders.com).

One-Timers is on top of its game. The course is solely dedicated to its students. You will NOT get that type of personalized attention and support from Barbri.
With One-Timers, you can call night and day (literally…it’s in the contract)…24/7 bar exam support. You can get help at 3am! You will not get that with Barbri.
The materials are the most up-to-date and accurate. With Barbri, you’re dealing with people who haven’t taken or seen the bar in a gazillion years. On my bar (July 2014)…Every one of the essay topics we got, the course had thoroughly prepared us for and we had practiced over and over again. One-Timers’ students are well prepared! I honestly can’t imagine being any more prepared.
In short, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain with One-Timers.

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 of your 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!).
All of a sudden they were very jealous that I have been using One-Timers.
So thank you. I am SO grateful to have all your help, tips, and resources for this exam. Feeling confident!

No problem. One-Timers will double it and apply the credit to your account upon enrollment. Thus, if you have already paid $250 to another course, you will receive $500 off the price of One-Timers. Proof of deposit is required.
Within 24 hours. One-Timers has the fastest turnaround time of any course, tutor, or bar prep class in the nation. We feel that if we don’t get your simulated essay or performance test back to you immediately, you will forget what you wrote and the whole point of the assignment becomes meaningless.
Students receive individualized feedback with detailed comments and a grade on every written assignment they submit. Our graders carefully go through every sentence explaining how to make your answer better. Every written assignment comes with a One-Timers model answer and 10 minute audio (25 minute audio for performance tests) explaining that essay or performance test.
Actually, the average turnaround time is 30 minutes to an hour, but we like to give ourselves a 24-hour window just in case. Feel free to ask any former One-Timers student about the turnaround time.
