Barbri Sim: 156
Actual MBE: 177

Felt terrible afterwards, and was sure I'd be a drop from the simulated. Did every barbri MBE question, and no extras from elsewhere.

Barbri Simulated: 113 (took a week late)
Actual MBE: 147

Only completed ~55% of Barbri. Watched all the lectures but only skimmed through CMR. Didn't open other outline. Tried to do as many practice questions as possible (got through the 5th set) and made flash cards for every single question I got wrong or got right but didn't know why. Didn't take the final Barbri -- didn't need the mindfuck.

Barbri Simulated: 113
Refresher: 66/100
Actual: 146

I completed all of the Barbri questions. I also used Adaptibar to supplement the Barbri questions during the final two weeks of studying.

Barbri Simulated: 90
Refresher: 70/100
Actual MBE: 158.7

Didn't take studying seriously in June at all, kept up only with the lectures and barely studied them at that. Had a massive panic attack post-sim and picked up Crit Pass, Adaptibar, and other supplements though I didn't use them as much. Thought this would help other slackers out there in the future stress a little less. It wasn't the ideal study plan, but it's doable (and expensive). I put in noticeably longer hours in July than my peers from July 4th to the end and wound up off the Barbri plan completely as I prioritized drilling outlines, black letter law, and MBE question explanations over everything else.

Barbri sim: 118

Actual: 153

Revisiting and redoing past Barbri problem sets helped me better learn from my mistakes.

Seeing people here get high MBE's score gives me hope that I did well enough to pass. It's so hard too tell though, I started off using Themis and then completely switched to only using Adaptibar for awhile.

Kinda eased up on the studying after the simulated so might explain the small increase, idk.

I don't remember my exact Barbri simulated. I *think* it was 34th percentile and it was either 108 or 113--I can't remember but those two numbers stick with me. Maybe one was me and one was a friend? lol

Anyway, so Barbri simulated 108-113
Barbri final N/A - didn't do
Actual MBE: 159.5
Overall UBE: 308

Themis: 140
MBE: 159.5
(written = 153.4)
Total: 313

Completed 100% of Themis, but only outlined essays and MPTs. Probably did 5 essays that were not either an outline and/or open-book. Never did more than outline MPTs and can't imagine doing more would have been particularly helpful. Studied 9-5 everyday with a few days off for a wedding and 4th of July.

Yes lower scores get larger bumps, that's how scaling works on normal distributions.



Well done!

Hey, do you mind sharing your preparation strategies with us? I am retaking the GA bar this February and I'd appreciate any tips and advice on doing well on the MBE.
