Frequently Asked Questions
What is Esqyr?
Esqyr provides a la carte tools to study for a license or credential, using materials from previously-tested exams. Its first three products target the bar exam.
Although the student debt crisis continues to worsen, debt caused by the skyrocketing price of study materials is preventable. Esqyr is the first and only test prep company that is a public benefit corporation. That means Esqyr has a social mission to deliver affordable study materials, while donating profits to tackle student debt.
What tools does Esqyr currently provide?
How long do I have access to the study tools?
Esqyr users have access for one year from the date of signup.
What are your pass rates?
While in beta release, we do not have enough data to accurately report pass rates. However, we are using only real bar exam questions and answers (excluding Civil Procedure, which are licensed from a legal publisher). Once we receive enough data, we will publish our pass rates.
How do I know your questions are any good?
Because they’re the real multi-state bar exam questions. We don’t try to guess what the bar examiners will test on — we use questions straight from the source. Civil Procedure questions — because they are not yet available from the NCBE — are sourced from Fleming’s Fundamentals of Law.
Is this an app ... or what?
Esqyr is an online service — made fully compatible with Android or iOS. You’re not restricted to particular platform, browser, computer, or technology — Esqyr is available on any device.
In the coming year, Esqyr will be completing both an Android and iOS app, giving users even more flexibility.
Can I use this to supplement other courses?
Yes! Because other courses may offer their materials in certain formats or in a particular area, we encourage students to piece together the tools that work best for them. We will soon have several credible, affordable tools from partnering companies that you can choose from, too.
And if you decide to purchase a $4,000 course from those other guys, our tools give you real bar exam questions and answers — giving you an extra edge.
You say you have all the NCBE MBE questions -- but why are you about 600 questions short of some of your competitors?
The NCBE specifically advises against using their 1992 question bank, which is 581 questions. That’s why it’s not listed on the NCBE website, though it is offered to those licensing their materials. Esqyr chooses not to use these outdated materials, but we will continue to add additional MBE questions over time.
Can I get this for free? I have a lot of debt.
It depends. Esqyr is a Public Benefit Corporation and is legally obligated to donate both profits and accounts to reduce students legal education debts. All sales to law schools include donated accounts, for use by the students most challenged by student debt.
What is your refund policy?
If any of our products do not live up to expectations for any reason, we will gladly refund students within seven days of the initial purchase.
Refund requests after seven days will only be considered in the event that the student studied using Esqyr and did not pass the exam. In these cases, we will provide a refund of the purchase price of all products purchased if the student provides a receipt of another comprehensive bar review course that costs at least as much as Esqyr.
Do you sell to law firms or law schools?
Absolutely. Click here to learn more.
What's next? GMAT, SAT, etc.?
Because Esqyr’s long-term mission is to reduce and prevent student debt, we will seek out additional ways to deliver more cost-effective study materials, in order to reduce and prevent student debt for all students — not just law students.
