And thanks, I was happy with my score for like 2 hours before realizing that I was probably really inefficient with my time and could have enjoyed my summer more haha.
Happy to share how I studied for the MBE though. I did all of the questions that Barbri assigned -- including the daily MPQ sets, the midterm, the refresher, and (I think) also the extra sets they had on their website. I think this totaled to about 1200 "fake" MBE questions. With respect to the real questions, I did the Emanuel book (I think he says there are about ~600 real questions in there). Also, I did the OPEs NCBE released to the extent not covered in the Emanuel book. Lastly, in my down time, I'd take a crack at the three full-length MBEs NCBE published on the website. Those were 200 questions each, also totaling 600. That last resource was a little dubious because obviously the law has changed since then, as has their editorial style.
In each case and to the extent available, I also read the answer explanations for each answer choice for all questions regardless of whether I got it right or not, and I would hate myself for wasting hours reading stuff I already knew but every now and then I would discover that I got a question right for the wrong reason.
All of this excessive MBE prep was certainly not without prejudice to my MEE/MPT scores, but I knew that I'd rather get the MBE down than struggle through the minutiae of Sec Trans or Will/Trusts.
Thanks. I'm pretty sure the UBE score report doesn't include the subscores (if anyone on here knows for certain, please let me know). The hardest part in figuring out the MBE subscores is getting the high range so I can figure out the rest. Typically, examinees that fail are not in the high range of MBE subscores (with the exception of CA examinees which tells you how difficult the CA exam is).
Hold on to your passing notice because some people won't believe you when you tell them. What was your total UBE score? Also, what was your overall % correct on all MBE practice questions that you answered? Based on the J16 national statistics on the MBE (this year's statistics will not be released until next year), this places you in the 100th percentile for the MBE. Based on J17 PA statistics, the highest MBE for J17 was 190.3 so you will probably be the 99.8th percentile for the J17 MBE. My guess is about 67,000 examinees took the MBE in 2017, so you did better than all but a handful of them.
