I took it and passed in back in Feb. All I can say is stick to the CRAC formula and watch your time.

Few questions. Do you remember your score break down? How many distinctions did you really know? Did you feel like you were going to pass going in?

Seeing what MBE score I need to get and how hard it is to get 4's on the essays essentially.

I got a 142 on the MBE. I have to find the envelope with the rest of the scoring information so I will try to get back to you on that. Going in, I had a neutral feeling from it being February and the pass rates being dismal. However, I had a game plan to play fast and loose when It came to the essays. I was never really sure I was going to pass until they released the list. The easier the essay question, the harder it is to get a 4.

I was averaging from 70 to 77 percent on the practice essays. That test was funky all around. I had to BS only two from what I remember. I bs'd evidence and corporations and got a 2 and a 5. I thought I killed Secured transactions but only ended up with a 4.

70-77 percent on the practice essays or the multiple choice?

Woops! I meant multiple choice. I am attempting to multi-task today.

No problem and 70-77 percent on themis or barbri or past ncbe tests?

And did you know most of the Ohio distinctions? Or sometimes just applied majority law on essays.

It was on past NCBE tests. I know it is late in the game, but do study on real NCBE questions! How I feel about Barbri's MBE questions is a theme for another day. Know as much Ohio distinctions as you possibly can. To me, the distinctions are likely to pop up in contracts, torts, and criminal law so be on the look out for them. Just stay focused, don't panic if you get a funky question, and stick to your game plan.
