Sitting for the bar exam is one of the final steps required to obtain a license to practice law. All but two of the jurisdictions in the United States require attorneys to sit for the Multistate Bar Examination, or MBE CCNA certification. The MBE contains questions that cover contractual law, constitutional law, criminal law, evidentiary law, real property law, and tort law. The single best way to pass the MBE on the first try is to use MBE exam simulation software.
Why incur the additional expense of an MBE review course after studying for years and spending $100,000 or more to earn a law degree? According to the National Conference of Bar Examiners, 79 percent of all students who sat for the bar for the first time in 2010 passed the exam. The overwhelming majority of students who passed on the first attempt paid to take an MBE review course, practiced with MBE software, or paid to take MBE practice exams prior to sitting for the actual exam.
MBE prep courses are designed to teach the fundamentals of law. They are designed to train students to recognize the format of MBE questions and quickly identify the issues being tested. A good bar exam prep course includes actual bar exam questions from previous exams. Students become familiar with the style of the exam questions and learn what to expect long before ever sitting for the actual bar. The bar exam practice questions include correct responses, and repeated exposure to questions and answers in the correct format which trains students to instantly respond to any exam question in that same format.
Multistate Bar Exam software is far more versatile than standard printed study guides. Students see statistical analyses of their performance with each MBE practice test and are able to quickly identify areas that require additional study. Some MBE online study programs allow students to customize a library of Multistate Bar Exam sample questions to create realistic practice tests with an emphasis on a particular subject area. This allows students who are brilliant in one area of law to improve their knowledge base in areas of identified weaknesses.
