Themis vs Barnow (NCBE Stuff) Accuracy of Difficulty?

Postby kmla14han » Fri Jan 24, 2020 1:43 am

So I'm consistently getting 75% ~ 80% on Barnow prep and 60% ~ 65% on Themis MBE prep. This is my first bar exam, and I don't know which one is the more accurate indicator of the actual bar exam difficulty...

In my jurisdiction, 62.5% usually is, with usual scale, the golden number.
60 ~ 65 means if I get strep the day before the MBE, I can fail...

Themis is harder than the real thing. Never heard of Barnow, but I'd assume they're easier based on that number.

The official questions are for sure the most accurate indication of the difficulty level of the test. It's a good idea to work on a variety of sources, but if trying to gage the difficulty level, the NCBE stuff is the closest to what you'll see on the exam.
