Are you referring to the online practice exams or the paper practice exams in the books? I can give you the info as to the Barbri book.

Very random, but is it possible for one of the essays to be Business Entities. I know the Bar hasn't tested it before, but is it possible?

Was referring to the paper practice exam in the book.

Does anyone know if there is a BAR company or anyone else who has/sells MNEMONICS for the ‘Florida - Part A’ portion Only?

I know there are a ton of mnemonics that people have made/shared but they focus on the UBE or MBE portions.

If anyone has helpful info for PART A, please share! :)

Does anyone have a list of the previously historical tested subjects per FL bar exam, that they wouldn't mind sending me? It would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, I think so, unless they re-test Wills for the M.C, which I think they just tested last examination

I haven't double checked it but someone said yesterday in a reddit thread that Wills was tested each of the past 2 tests. Last test was wills and evidence and fl civ/crim. I'd be extremely surprised if BE wasn't on it.

Well folks....

We're a little over two weeks out from February 2020's exam. I took and passed (quite comfortably) the Florida portion in July. Missed the MBE by 9 points.

So I'm retaking only the MBE this time. I've been working full time, studying at night and before work when I can. Doing okay on question sets so far....hope I've put enough time in to make it by with a 136...

I am in the same boat as you. I missed the MBE by 7 points. How have you been scoring? I am nervous - i keep ranging from 60s to 70s. I am not really sure whats passing because the curve is always different. But even dropping 5 points on test day could be detrimental.
I still feel like i know everything yet.

I'm pretty much in the same range. I'm averaging over, say 500 questions, about 62.4% right on all. On individual and mixed sets from 61-68% with some outliers in either direction.

I'm pretty much at the end covering all the seven tested areas, and these last two weeks will be review and doing more questions. I'm feeling confident overall that as long as I take my time and keep my head on straight, I'll get a 136 or better and finally will get sworn in.

Random question - but is anyone taking the bar in February and a little perplexed by the lack of communication?

I got a paper ticket in the mail. Is that literally all they send you?

I've taken the bar in 2 other states and they've regularly communicated things via email (here is your ticket number, laptop compliance is by this date, etc.).

Does Florida just tell you nothing, and if you didn't get that paper ticket, you're out of luck? Or am I just not on emails?

When you register for your exam, you pay your exam fees, and optional laptop fee, and the Board of Bar Examiners sends you a letter. Contained therein is your admission ticket and information on laptop use if you elected to use one. Its one ticket for both days (if you're sitting for both days that is). The software is then downloaded and installed on your laptop by the time provided (which should also come in that letter with your admission ticket). That information is also available on the Board's website under FAQ's as well.

Other than that, nope, not a lot of communication...in fact none.

Good luck!

Is it just me or are all of the sample 30 MC questions on the FL-Bar's study guide website the exact same questions no matter which year you choose?????

yes, they’re all repeated. I don’t think they release them often because they actually recycle/ re-use them, I think? I hope!

Anyone else FREAKING out about the FLORIDA Day- Multiple Choice questions?? Business Entities is kicking my ass!!! :roll:

I'm more concerned of essays, to be honest. Been having a tough time with rule memorization. Especially Art 3/9. Previous fact patterns have been ruthless to read.

Retaking the Florida portion and both parts are gonna be awful. They act like they did us a favor combining the BE outline but it's still a mess. The essays are going to suck regardless, hopefully no curveballs like repeating multiple topics from the summer or something similar.
