Looking for MBE Practice Questions?

mbe practice questionsLooking for MBE Practice Questions?

We get a lot of inquiries from people looking for MBE practice questions. Some of these students are first-time takers who are not happy with the questions offered by their commercial courses (and indeed most courses do not offer real MBE questions, so we can see why this is the case!). Some of these inquiries are from repeat takers who have exhausted many of the course-invented questions as well as the “better” MBE questions that are released by the National Conference of Bar Examiners.  Continue reading

Failed the MBE? Check out our MBE course specifically for repeat takers!

It is disappointing to fail the bar exam, and extremely disappointing to fail the multistate bar exam (MBE) portion of the bar exam. The MBE portion is difficult to master and many students describe doing thousands of practice MBE questions but barely seeing their score increase.

A lot of students work “hard” but don’t study well. If you failed the MBE, it is time for a new approach! The good news is, we have helped hundreds of students dramatically improve their MBE scores. It takes hard work, a smart approach, and a willingness to step away from the approach that did not work for you the first time. We teach you this approach in our MBE course. Continue reading

Average MBE Score Drops to Record Low in February 2018

February 2018 Average MBE Score Drops to Record Low

According to recently released statistics by the Pennsylvania Board of Law Examiners, the mean MBE scaled score for the total population for the February 2018 bar exam was 132.775.  This is a new record low in the history of MBE scores.

We have created two charts to illustrate this drop in MBE scores. The first chart shows you the data and exactly how the MBE score has dropped. We used the scale from 130 – 144, because those are scores that reflect passing MBE scores in virtually all of the fifty states. (Though Wisconsin does consider a 129 passing).

A Proposed MBE Strategy For Those Who Struggle With Timing

A Proposed MBE Strategy For Those Who Struggle With Timing

A Proposed MBE Strategy: We have written a lot about MBE timing strategies before. So if you really struggle with timing, the best thing you can do is try to improve it before test day. However, we have noticed a few things about the MBE. And we are not professional exam writers, nor have we studied test questions or how to administer them. So, if you have, or if you know someone who has, please contact us or comment below! We would love to hear from you. What we offer is just a theory just based on some things that we do know.  We are looking for feedback and we admit this theory may not be a “good” theory. Unlike most of our other posts, we are only setting forth a theory in this post!
