Wtf did someone delete a bunch of the results from the google doc or am I just missing something? Looks like someone deleted everything but the Barbri results.

When I went in, it looked like someone had tried to sort it and messed it up. I've tried to fix it and update it.

Practice MBE on BarBri simulated exam: 100/200
Scaled MBE score on bar exam: 127/200
I used BarBri (obviously).

FWIW I switched to actual MBE questions halfway through BarBri and I pretty much attribute any gains I made in knowledge base from that change. May be able to get a larger increase in February.

I think the last time I did the math the average bump from last practice to actual was a little over 26 points, so that would put you right in line with what I've been seeing.

Barbri mid-term: 112/200
Final: 61/100
MBE scaled: 149.3

Second bar (moved to a new state) and studied about 1/4 as much as the first go 'round, so my mid-term was taken ~15 days before the actual exam.

Themis
Practice: 149
Actual: 166.9 (Passed)

Thought that MBE was much harder than Themis PT when I walked out. Saying that I remember thinking Themis PT was also hard after taking it. Happy I took Themis--especially considering I have a free iPad to show for it while all my friends who took BarBri don't. I admit, that I had some doubts and almost jumped on the barbri band wagon, glad I didn't.

These scores are encouraging. I’m going to need a strong MBE cause I had 2 essays that weren’t very good. Hopefully the trend continues for me.

Barbri Sim=154/200
Final=75/100

Do you happen to remember where your Barbri midterm placed you in their percentiles? I can't find where I wrote down my score, but I think it was in the 105-115 range and whatever it was put me at like 38th percentile on the midterm. Hoping to pinpoint it so I can participate in this thread accurately when I get my result. Thanks!

Barbri simulated: 140
Actual: 169

Did almost all of the practice Barbri MBE questions and critical pass flash cards throughout the summer. Felt pretty bad about the real thing.

Barbri sim: 132
Refresher: 55/100
Actual MBE: 151.6
(MEE: 170.5)

Thought the refresher was utter bullshit and it really wrecked my confidence leading up to the exam. If i could do it over again, I wouldn't have even bothered with the refresher. Those who say it's designed to scare you are correct.

Did 99% of Barbri but with inflation; never actually prepared for the lecture or reviewed my notes. Skimmed most essays. Only did two MPTs for real and the other two were more outlines than anything. Felt HORRIBLE after the bar and was convinced I had failed.

The Conviser mini-review helped me the most with difficult subjects. I recommend skipping the large Barbri outline altogether and focusing on the mini-review.

Practice: 120

Kaplan

Used Kaplan and Adaptibar and did not do well during the process. Maxed out at 62%. Felt shitty about the MBE until the day of results.
