I’m an attorney licensed in Texas, though I haven’t practiced in 13 years. Looking to take the Connecticut bar exam next year due to concerns about the long term security of my federal job. For those that have taken the CT bar exam in the last several years, which prep course/materials did you use? Would you choose it again? I used Barbri when I took the Texas exam in ‘08.

I used themis and had no complaints with it. Use whichever is cheapest, I don’t think they are that different.

Barbri or Kaplan will get you across the line.

Can you not waive in?

No, because I would have had to practice for 5 of the last 10 years. But I haven’t practiced since 2010, when I switched careers.

Genuinely I think you’ll get the same amount out of any of the big three. I used barbri, it worked. I have friends who used Themis and Kaplan, they also passed

I haven't graduated yet, but most my my friends that graduated last year took Themis and passed. I know BarBri had some issues with site outages last summer that Themis users didn't have. You really can't go wrong with either, though Themis breaks down their subjects into shorter videos (think 15-25 mins), while BarBri does much longer ones, so depending on your study style one may be better than the other. Best of luck!!
