How many que do you practice a day? Do you review each 4 answers for each que?

Last summer I did 50 per day average.

And I reviewed/studied all answer choices after each question.

I used Adaptibar for my MBE practice.

REVIEW EVERY SINGLE ANSWER FOR EVERY SINGLE QUESTION. I cannot stress that enough.

If you're pressed for time, you could risk skipping the ones you get right (only if you know WHY they're right). However, review the explanatory answers for each question that you get wrong....EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Thank you. This is what i'm trying to do and it is, indeed, very helpful. However, it takes tons of time. what makes me wonder how ppl do and review 50 questions and answer (200 answers!) a day.

I think any more than 50 per day can actually be counter-productive. Each question teaches a rule of law that you'll need to apply to some future question. Far more effective than merely packing in quantity is to focus on the rule that was tested in any given question and to make sure to understand the rule enough so that you'll be able to apply it to a new set of facts!

I think that 30 a day is more doable. 50 seems very ambitious especially if you are trying to keep up with the bar prep assignments and keep a steady pace going.

You do need to review all answers for all questions so it's more time consuming than you think.

50 is a lot but it's doable. you're less than 2 months out. you need to be doing 50 so you can get your stamina up.

With Adaptibar, I do min 10/day up to 50 depending on how much of the stuff I have to study that day. Eventually, when I’ll be done with all the substantive law, I plan on doing something like half a day just questions and the other half just essays/PTs. In that case I would probably be able to to min 40/day. Also, I always review every (and add to my outlines) explanations of the ones I get wrong, including all answer choices (skimming the obvious wrong ones). If I get them right, I just skim quickly the explanation to make sure I got them right for the right reason.
