Comparing the Top 3 Audio Outlines Companies
Audio outlines—an awesome study strategy
First, look at the stars. AudioLearn lags behind with an average 3.8-star rating. AudioOutlines maintains a more impressive 4.5-star average. But Crushendo has a flawless, 5-star rating.
Second, look at the fans. Though newer than both AudioOutlines and AudioLearn, Crushendo has nearly four times the Facebook likes of AudioOutlines and AudioLearn combined. Popularity doesn't mean everything but it says something.
What about subjects? Crushendo wins again, covering all subjects tested on the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE). AudioOutlines misses several, including keystones like civil procedure and evidence. AudioLearn omits secured transactions.
Despite all that, innovation may be the greatest differentiator. Crushendo offers audio flashcards (affectionately dubbed "CrammerTime"), hundreds of proprietary mnemonics (a.k.a, memory hacks), and even optional classical background music.
That all must mean Crushendo is crazy expensive, right? True, one thing the comparison chart doesn't show you is cost. AudioOutlines and AudioLearn both sit in the same ballpark ($20 to $30 per audio outline). Crushendo comes in a touch higher with $37 per audio outline. That said, Crushendo always includes written outlines and visual flashcards to complement your audio.
