IHateLawschool.com Bar Advice:  The Multistate Bar Exam (MBE)

One of toughest parts of the bar to prepare for was the Multistate Bar Exam a/k/a the MBE. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the MBE, it consists of a series of multiple choice questions where there are usually 2 or 3 answers that seem correct. From my point of view, BarBri did a great job of teach the general rules of law, but many of the MBE questions focus on obscure exceptions to these rules. This is where I found the PMBR course I took to be helpful.  

I took a two-day PMBR short course and felt it was definitely worth the money, as my scores on practice exams really jumped.  I also found that the PMBR practice exams were not only more challenging than those provided by BarBri, but also were a better representation of what I encountered on the bar.  Also, PMBR's practice books contained thousands of questions.  The one thing I can’t emphasize enough is that the more practice MBE questions you can work through, the better.  Not only will this make you feel more confident for the exam, but it will also teach you many of the quirks that the MBE tests.  Be sure to not only answer the questions, but also to carefully read the explanations of the answers.  Therein lies the true value.
