I have found that to be true. You can read a question and know the answer... but that answer isn't available and you have to choose the most logical of what is there. I don't think it is a Kaplan thing, but just MBE in general. A friend of mine who passed last year is one of those piss you off genius tyoes that doesn't try and scores great.... he consistently scored in the 85-95% range on all his MBE quizzes/practice tests and said something similar- you have to go against the answer you wish you could argue. I find myself wanting to argue BOTH SIDES of two different answers, and I usually end up having to guess.
It's really a big pain in the ass. The bar is grading us on something that would get us disbarred otherwise- let a client walk in you roffice and give you their version of the story, spend a minute or so, with no research, and tell them how it will turn out.... see what happens
This is so perfectly spot-on accurate. Have you considered taking the MBE while drunk? Cause you're a genius in that state.
