This is my first time posting. I passed Florida part A on my first attempt and this is my second time failing the MBE. I have no idea how to study for July. I thought I nailed it.

I took Barbri, I was testing at 72/100. I completed over 2000 Mc questions including 2 tsets from ncbe. At this point I feel like I don't know anything. I even finished with time to spare, so time management isn't an issue.

Taking this test a 3rd time is just exhausting. And on top of that I can't bare lettering my family down yet again. I know mental state is everything and by June I will be back prepared but right now I just need suggestions please.

I now have more Barbri questions, critical pass cards and celebration testing material. Should I take both part A and B so that I can possibly pass with the overall method or should I just go for mbe only?

Do adaptibar for MBE prep and you will be able to pass the MBE. Take both sections again as it cant hurt you, but devote 95% of your studying to the MBE. If you do all of the Adapitbar questions you will gain the confidence you need for the MBE.

I passed both Part A and Part B, but I am not yet eligible to be sworn in. It looks like the overall pass rate was around 50% (it was 58% for first-time takers sitting for the entire exam). Only about 28% of test takers were eligible to be sworn in as of yesterday. Florida is apparently really slow with the C&F investigations.

Thanks uteman2016. I just wasn't sure where to start at this point.

If they have not received passing mpre scores yet (March '16 scores are scheduled to be released this Thursday), that would also hold things up.

As for studying, I would add Adaptibar.

As for Part A, don't take it. If you failed Part A and passed Part B, I would say definitely take MBE again. It's just MC, but Part A is essays. You can't pass Part A without studying. Don't waste time studying.

As for "nailed" it, that may be your issue. You think you're getting it but really falling for the decoy, etc. Memorization might be an issue here.

I could be wrong but knowing that February is full of repeat takers, some MPRE scores may have expired which would keep someone from being sworn in

@not guilty. Thank you. I'm going back to the basics and using this month to commit to memorizing the black letter law.

I am in your shoes. This was my second bar exam after 10 years. I took NY bar 10 years ago right after law school and was able to study full time and passed it on the first try, moved to Florida recently, took some time off the practice of law and decided to get back in. This time I had a full time job and two toddlers and no time off. I was able to pass Part A but not Part B :cry: . For July, I am going to do only part B so I am only working on MBE subjects as opposed to all subjects, so I am not taking any time away from MBE practice. I will be using Adaptibar this time (which i wish I knew about before 2 weeks to the exam) in conjunction with Themis again.

We can do this!

Good point. And as Tzhs pointed out, March '16 MPRE scores will be released this week. Out of the 400 or so people who passed and aren't eligible to be sworn in, I wonder how many are waiting on the MPRE and how many are waiting on the C&F investigation (and how many are waiting on both).

I passed the Nov. '15 MPRE, so I know the holdup for me is the C&F investigation. I mailed out my bar application on Dec. 15th, so I'm not surprised--just hoping it doesn't take too much longer.

Thank you. It's just incredibly frustrating. This time I'm taking 6 weeks off, hopefully I will have a job at the end but I'm determined to pass this test

I'm not a FL taker but I'm curious...might be a dumb question but does FL have a numerical cutoff for Part B (mbe) or does the passing standard change/depend on the administration?

I highly recommend using Adaptibar for your primary MBE source and then supplementing with Barbri to switch things up. I failed in July and used Adaptibar primarily this time around and it was a game-changer IMO. If you answer and fully understand all/most of the questions on there, I feel like it is very hard to fail. I actually saw fact patterns in my AM session that closely resembled ones I had done on Adaptibar. At the end of the day, this exam is about learning the law and also learning how to take this exam. I feel like the 2nd part of that equation can only be mastered by using the NCBE's own questions and not poorly-written Barbri questions.

With that said, I did find it extremely useful to switch it up once in a while and do some Barbri questions. The MBE, or at least part of it, will always feel "foreign" or like you didn't even study. I found this to be the case in both July and Feb. Since Barbri questions are written differently, it was a nice exercise to get my brain off the Adaptibar autopilot sometimes and put myself in an MBE-like situation where the questions seemed different than what I had been studying.

I do see that you have done over 2000 questions, so maybe you just aren't really reviewing them deep enough and really understanding what's going wrong. One habit I picked up was was to have my CMR by me whenever I was doing questions. I would mark that thing up, and look up the BLL for every single question, whether I got it right or wrong to really engrain the rule into my head. I would also make note of how the facts came up and sometimes write out the hypo next to the rule in my CMR, so that I could associate those types of fact patterns with those rules. Knowing how the facts come up in relation to the BLL being tested is just as important as memorizing the rule itself. You can be able to spit out every single bit of BLL tested on the MBE and still fail miserably if you can't identify how they actually come up. So when you are reviewing, make sure you are REALLY reviewing the questions and not just going through the motions of reading the explanation and moving on to the next question. If a question takes you 30 minutes to fully understand, then so be it. Time better spent than doing 10 more questions with a half-assed understanding of them. Use this forum whenever you are having an issue understanding a particular question. This place was was a goldmine of information and motivation while I was studying this time around.

Lastly, I'd suggest putting all of your effort into passing the MBE this time around, unless your Part A score was that high and you truly believe you can replicate that again. Also, given the essays that were tested in both July and Feb., do you really want to take that gamble again? I think one of the biggest factors that contributed to me passing this time was the fact that all I had to worry about was studying for and taking the MBE. Being able to average both scores seems appealing at first, but I ultimately think it's the wrong choice. Even if you dedicate zero time to studying for Part A, you still have to go take the damn thing on the first day, ultimately draining yourself of the precious mental energy you need to pass Part B the next day. I can't even express how advantageous it was for me to go into Part B, fully rested and focused this time, without having fatigue and stress from the previous day hanging over my head still. People were walking around like zombies, still talking about the essays on Wednesday, while I was at 115%, with a clear head, ready to destroy the MBE. May not sound like a big deal but the MBE is something that requires you to be very mentally agile and erasing an entire day's worth of stress from that equation puts you in the best place on game day IMO.

You can and will get at least a 136 if all you have to worry about is the MBE. Do every question on Adaptibar, plus a decent amount of Barbri (like their simulated exam and mixed sets) and you will have zero issue getting a 136 without having to rely on Part A. You will get to a point where you are doing so well that you will be upset that you aren't getting better than 75% raw. With that mindset and preparation, you will be ready to dominate the MBE 8)

Your response and experience keeps me encouraged and knowing that I am on the right path as well. I would definitely love to get upset over a 75% raw score :wink:

You definitely are on the right track. If you approach things as you described in your previous post, you are not only going to pass, but pass easily.

Even though I wrote a mountain of text in that last post, I feel like I still missed a lot of the insight and knowledge I gained this last time while studying. So please, feel free to PM me with questions or just to vent while you are studying this time. Failing the bar in July was one of the worst feelings I've ever had and I would love nothing more than to share my experience and do all I can to help someone else avoid such a miserable feeling.

The cut score is always 136 for both part a and part b; provided, that you can pass if your total score equals or exceeds 272, even if one of your scores is below 136.

I am in a similar position. I was a first time taker in Feb. I passed Florida and failed MBE...and failed overall. I appreciate the tips and am looking into Adaptibar.

Also wondering if anyone has a discount code I can use.

Thanks.

I sent you a PM with instructions on how to get the code for Adaptiabr. If anyone else is interested feel free to PM me and I will do the same. It's the only reason I passed the MBE and highly recommend it to everyone. To those that did not pass, stay positive and keep at it! You will pass!

100% agree. Adaptibar is hands down the best MBE prep and it's not even close.

Are high bar scores considered marketable? Is it something worth putting on a cover letter/resume or bringing up in an interview?

Additionally, anyone know of a way to see where you ranked in Florida? If the answer to the above question is YES, then I assume your score is only marketable if it is over a certain threshold (top 1, top 5, top 10??)

Last year's highest scorer in Florida got a 175, my score was 169. Would love to know where this falls, if I can indeed use it when talking to firms.

Did you take a bar prep course? I took Barbri. BUT, I used other materials to pass Florida. I have a friend who performed exact same way and prepared the exact same way. I think Barbri let us down.

Going to do Adaptibar this time. Good luck to you.
