Evidence MBE Practice Test 2018
This 30-question multiple-choice prep test concerns the subject of Evidence. The law of evidence is generally governed by the Federal Rules of Evidence, as restyled in 2011. Although each state has its own code of evidentiary laws, the national trend recently has been for the states to model their procedural rules after the Federal ones. The federal rules are considered to be uniform, more modernized and easier to understand and apply than many older and archaic state evidentiary codes. The Bar Prep Hero test below is similarly based on the Federal Rules of Evidence and the student should keep that in mind when answering the questions. These questions are intended to give you practice with the kinds of questions that you will encounter on the official MBE.
As usual, we urge you to be well-rested and not distracted when going through these exercises. We also note that there is only one best answer to the hypothetical question. As is generally the case for legal analysis and reasoning, you should first understand the facts, then identify the legal issue(s) posed as couched by the facts, and follow through by applying applicable fundamental legal principles to resolve the legal issue(s). The National Conference of Bar Examiners advises that you “answer the questions according to generally accepted fundamental legal principles, except where noted.”
Our writers have studied past official MBE questions and sample questions from other authoritative sources. The following questions will increase your familiarity with the types of questions that will appear on the MBE. The MBE gives you six hours to compete the 200 questions. BPH gives you all the time you want because we believe that you will learn more from an “open book” type of format at this point in your studies. By eliminating the pressure to perform and focusing instead on using the learning tools here provided, your retention of the material will improve. Thus, it’s a powerful way to get ready for the big examination! Don’t forget to follow through and read some or all of the legal annotations in the ‘explanation’ section. Look up the case law and review again how the courts unravel these issues and apply pertinent legal principles to the problem. After all, that is what the legal process does: it assures the smooth functioning of society by recognizing and applying a framework of fundamental values and rules for living together in security and freedom.
