What is the best way to study for the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE)? I made a short YouTube video demonstrating my favorite strategies. These include:
Doing thousands of MBE practice questions with Adaptibar or books containing past questions. Creating your own outline for each subject from scratch Populating your homemade outline with rules gleaned from answer explanations for practice questions you didn’t understand Creating your own audio resources using Speechify or another text-to-speech app Listening to lectures from YouTube, the Sum and Substance series, or other sources while you run, drive, or do the dishes Working with a bar tutor or study partner Check out the video here:
How should a person preparing for the bar exam—or for black-letter law school courses such as those taught to 1Ls—master a subject’s legal rules as efficiently as possible? After spending hundreds of hours tutoring law students and bar examinees, I’ve come up with the following method:
Build momentum by starting with one or two MBE subjects that interest you, then gradually add additional subjects. There is too much material on the bar exam to try to study everything at once when you first begin preparing for the exam.
