About to purchase the emmanuels, but wanted to point out that there's a more recent 6th edition (2016). I think the difference is that the fifth (2012) does not have a civ pro set of questions, and that they're only available via an access code they provide for you.

On this -- if you're using Barbri (or Themis/Kaplan), anyone heard anything on the best time to use these questions? One person advised me to use Emanuel after being done with Barbri's questions, but I kind of think that's backwards since Emanuel's are real NCBE questions whereas Barbri's are made up.
Which part is backwards? Like you're saying you would have done more MBE prep pre-substantive review? Sorry I don't get what youre saying.
I'm asking whether you should first complete Barbri's assigned, made-up MBE questions, and then move on the Emanuel's real ones for extra practice, or flip it, and prioritize doing Emanuel's questions first and then do Barbri's if you have time left.
I've heard someone say the former, which I think is backwards because it prioritizes Barbri's made-up questions over real NCBE questions from the Emanuel book.
I used them after I finished the BarBri questions and would probably do it again that way. The Emmanuel's questions are real but they are also older questions. The real questions you will see on the exam are structured a little differently and more closely resemble the BarBri questions. The CivPro questions in Emmanuel's are also ridiculous and NOTHING like the real CivPro questions. They are much too long and very very difficult. The problem is that the BarBri questions are too easy. Regardless, I don't think you should discount BarBri's questions because they aren't real. The are more than adequate to prepare you for the MBE. Use Emmanuel's as a supplement and you should be golden.
