PSA - I just did the free 18 question MBE on the MBE website and bombed. Flipped out and bought the 3 x $125 package from them. The 18 questions on the website appear to be wildly more difficult than the one's in the 100 Question packs

100% agree, just wanted others to know that 18 question test is super flame. There's a Fair Housing Act question in there..

That's because they're selling the easiest MBE questions. The real questions are way longer.

That seems accurate, a lot of these are super short.

I thought BarBri's questions were pretty damn similar to the real MPRE, so I'm not expecting for there to be that much of a difference aside from BarBri's more than occasional flawed correct answers.

Yeah, the fair housing act question was a joke. Glad to hear the real ones were easier, I was convinced I'd fail the MBE for sure.

Lol I appreciate this considering how I bombed as well and also freaked out. It made me worried that I've been simply learning how to do barbri questions instead of actually really learning the material.

7/18 FTW... is there any place to get answer explanations for these 18 flame Q's? I'm legitimately curious about some of them. harder than barbri set 5/6 or SFE
