Practice MBE Questions Prepare Future Lawyers for Multi-State Bar Exams

December 09 15:15 2017

The old adage “Practice makes perfect” holds true for baking the perfect cookies, hitting an impressive tee shot, and passing certification exams. This is because practicing engages active recall, building and reinforcing connections in the brain. It also builds subconscious confidence, ingraining skills further into memory. In today’s world, learners need to find the best solution to acquire and preserve the knowledge for their chosen profession.


Luckily, flash card technology has improved from 3” x 5” index cards. There 21st century options on the web where students can create their own flash cards; however, there are also companies, like Brainscape, providing a platform with content created by experts and often explained in easy-to-understand language. This means students taking a certification exam don’t need to create the flash cards from scratch – giving them more time to study.

This can be especially helpful for those taking the Multistate Bar Examination – NCBE (National Conference of Bar Examiners). Successful students will test their own knowledge using a platform providing two types of questions: foundational questions on knowledge to be applied later to complex questions on practice exams, as well as single inquiries requiring analytical thinking typical of attorneys. Each type tests skills differently, further reinforcing knowledge retention.

Learners seeking to take the MBE would do well to consider the virtues of technologies based on flash cards. Building a learning habit around repetition of information will go a long way to making practice perfect, successfully passing the exam, and a profitable legal career.

Repetition is Key

Teachers at any level will agree, cramming for an exam – pulling the proverbial all-nighter – will result in poorer performance. There simply isn’t enough time to repeatedly review the material, and thus students will not be able to recall information they reviewed just the night before. Information is easier to recall, and retained longer, when learning happens through repetition.

Scientific studies have proven revisiting learned information over time increases the probability of recalling the information when necessary. One of the best ways to practice, and make perfect, is using repetitive self-testing, such as flash cards. Not only does this repetition allow for passing an exam in the near term, it allows the information to be retained longer and more readily remembered.
