✔ MBE Prep Test 2: Get Ready for Your Bar Exam 2017
This is the second Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) practice test, which is updated for 2017 and provided to you by our team of legal experts. These questions are designed to be similar to those you will find on the six-hour official MBE examination that consists of 200 multiple-choice questions. A few of the questions may have a slightly different format due to our belief in its learning value. A certain amount of variety encourages the learning process and will assist in your overall preparedness for the official MBE. Similar to our other prep tests, this one contains 50 multiple-choice questions. Your completion of this practice test is not timed, and it contains learning tools not in the official MBE.
This prep test combines material from most of the seven legal practice areas covered in the MBE. In any one of our prep tests you may not find all seven subject areas included. However, by the time you complete all of the prep tests, you will have encountered significant material from all seven subjects. The seven subjects we cover are the same as those included in the official MBE. They are Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law and Procedure, Evidence, Real Property and Torts.
It is good to remember that the National Conference of Bar Examiners, which prepares and publishes the MBE, states that the MBE is designed to “assess the extent to which an examinee can apply fundamental legal principles and legal reasoning to analyze given fact patterns.” That is also the BPH approach. We want to encourage looking at the big picture instead of getting mired down in details. You may also want to ask whether your answer will give the best outcome under the circumstances. That inquiry may not be foolproof, but it is often a good verifying technique. In addition, if your answer will cause an outrageous result, then you may be mired in cloudy thinking.
Prep test two contains the usual hints to guide you to the correct answer. It also contains our explanation section, which provides you with applicable legal authority. The explanation in most instances provides the fundamental principle governing the answer. By going to the citations provided, you can deepen your understanding of the question and its resolution. We believe that the extra assistance we provide through our unique approach and learning tools will help you to move closer to success in your bar examination effort!
