Overview

Your Course—and How It Integrates Into Your Bar Preparation

With our online MBE Foundation Course, you'll identify your personal areas of strength and weakness so that you'll be ready to hit the ground running when you get to your General Bar Review Course. We will cover the most up-to-date MBE trends. Each session covers one of the seven MBE subjects: Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law and Procedure, Evidence, Real Property, Torts, and Federal Civil Procedure. For every topic within each of the 7 MBE subjects, you will receive:

  • A brief overview of what to expect on the actual bar exam and how it will be tested. You will be given techniques and approaches that are specific to each topic within each of the 7 MBE subjects. Depending on the topic, each overview will take 5 to 10 minutes to watch.
  • You'll take an exam-like practice quiz that focuses on the most heavily tested areas for each topic. Depending on the topic, the number of exam-like questions in each quiz will vary. Each quiz will take you 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
  • Our faculty will walk you through each of the exam-like practice quizzes. We will review the law on which the answer to each question is based, and provide essential strategies and techniques to maximize your test performance. Depending on the topic, each quiz review session will last 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Next take a General Bar Review Course.
Your Kaplan Bar Review MBE Combination Course should be taken in conjunction with a General Bar Review course. Check out Kaplan Bar Review's Complete Bar Review, which includes Kaplan Bar Review's MBE Combination and General Bar Review courses.

Finish with the Kaplan Bar Review MBE Final Review Course.
This 3-day course features a full-day simulated MBE administered under test-like conditions, followed by a substantive question-based review that:

  • Highlights the finer points of the relevant law typically not covered in your General Bar Review lectures,
  • Covers the most up-to-date MBE trends, and
  • Helps you get extra points that can make the difference between passing and failing the Bar.

The Multistate Bar Exam at a Glance

What is the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE)?
The MBE is a national, 6-hour, 200-question multiple-choice test. In most states, the MBE accounts for 40% to 50% of your Bar Exam score. Nationally, 29% of all Bar Exam takers do not pass the exam.. Many who fail miss getting a passing score by just a small margin. Answering a few extra MBE questions correctly can make the difference between passing and failing the Bar Exam.

Important MBE Facts:

  • The MBE accounts for one full day of the Bar Exam and is required by every state except Louisiana and Washington.
  • The MBE is divided into two 3-hour sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, with 100 questions in each session.
  • Subjects tested on the MBE: Constitutional Law (31 questions), Contracts (33 questions), Criminal Law and Procedure (31 questions), Evidence (31 questions), Real Property (31 questions), and Torts (33 questions)
  • 10 of the 200 MBE questions are not used for scoring purposes. These questions are indistinguishable from the live test items.
