We recommend THIS instead of the Barbri Mock Exam

real mbe questions, barbri mock examWe recommend THIS instead of the Barbri Mock Exam

The Barbri mock exam creates a lot of stress among students. They wonder:

  • Is the Barbri mock exam harder than the actual exam?
  • Can you score low on the Barbri exam and still pass the real exam?
  • What “percentage” is passing on the Barbri mock exam?

Instead of asking these questions, guessing at whether you will receive a passing score, or worrying about how hard the MBE will be in comparison to the Barbri mock exam, we recommend you take a lot of the guesswork and stress out of it and use actual released bar exam questions.
