This was the biggest sham in regards to both the advertising and overall services offered by the teacher/tutor Bobby Doustkam and his class Open Book Bar Prep.When I first enrolled Doustkam acted as if his class was going to be "packed" and I would lose my spot if I did not enroll for his Bar Prep class and assured that he was full proof.
Against my better judgment I enrolled in the class under the pretense that he was going to offer me a bar grader as promised, that he had a 100% bar passage rate and most importantly that his class was unique because of the attention each student was to receive. After coming to class the first day I noticed only two students, but he promised more were to come and immediately demanded payment.
After I paid him I received no invoice or indication that payment was made. I didn't think much of it because I was studying for the bar exam and I did not want to focus on such issues.
Once the class commenced I noticed I had made a serious mistake. Doustkam was never on time and failed to deliver on almost any promise. He acted more like a used car salesman then a instructor and before I could retract or rescind the contract it was too late. All other bar-prep courses had already started and it was impossible for me to enroll. And to make matters worse he had informed me in passing that non of his past students who took the bar examination passed. This was truly a nightmare like you would not believe. Not only was I enrolled in a terrible and extremely over priced class, but I had no way out.
Doustkam's entire course was based on what Barbri offers and is twice the price with non of the service. I am now in litigation with Doustkam to get my money back which I paid.
I strongly urge and advise any student who is even considering or contemplating taking this class to really take a better look at what he is offering. This class is nothing but a sham and an attempt for an attorney who could not make it in the real world to prey on law students insecurities. He is by and far one of the most unethical people I have ever come accross.
Every statement made by Doustkam in his marketing materials or otherwise have been entirely false and I feel ashamed that I did not think it through. Additionally, read the other post online they all say the same thing. STAY AWAY!
