Just wanted to report success using this method in a 40% MBE state. I spent about 95% of my prep time on the MBE. Never did a practice essay until 7 days to the exam, only spent about 10 hours on essay practice, after 10ish listening to state-specific lectures. Everything else was just MBE, MBE, MBE. I think it really helped to be able to spend so much time on just the six MBE subjects instead of jumping around on all those goddamned state-specific subjects.
No idea what my score was unfortunately, so maybe I barely passed.

This became like my mantra every time I was worried about the essays. I didn't really know anything too specific for the essays. So mostly I just wrote based on general knowledge of the law, taking my best guess what the law would be. Honestly, I think the average essay is probably pretty crappy, and if you do well on the MBE, you can pass being significantly below average on that part.
