I found PMBR to be a HUGE waste of time. If you are self motivated, I highly recommend Adaptibar over PMBR. And I had several friends that did BarBri self study and all passed (but none took NY). One of the things that could bother some people in BarBri classes is the stress level. My God - I thought some of those people were going to explode. If you are one that gets bothered by that, then run like hell from BarBri classes. Oh...and in typical law student fashion....there are the liars telling everybody how many practice questions they did and how well they did on the last practice test. If you are one to buy into that and get bothered by it, then beware. None of that stuff bothered me but it really messed up my best friend's head. She flunked. The second go round, she did self study and was much calmer. She hasn't gotten her results yet, though. One of the things that did bother me was the sloooooow pace of some of the lectures. But, I needed the set schedule to motivate me so it worked well for me. Good Luck.
