A. The Barbri "package" includes MBE's - they'll have you do MBE's for each module where applicable and do a one-day simulation exam - but I think even Barbri would concede the MBE's are not their forte, whereas PMBR is all about the MBE's. I found that the PMBR questions mirrored the bar exam much more closely (July '06) than the Barbri questions and that the PMBR tips and strategies were much more helpful. Quite frankly, many of the exam questions I saw were almost word for word PMBR but my understanding is that may have since changed as Kaplan bought out the PMBR character who was "misappropriating" bar exam questions. Best of luck to you!
Interesting. Would you say the PMBR classes themselves were useful? Because I was just going to share my FI's PMBR books for the practice questions and such.
So I have PMBR Multistate Workbooks. Could (should) I use them to study for my doctrinal classes?
#29 Passing the BARApril 18th, 2008 · 100 CommentsThere appears to be several lawyers who read this blog, so I’m sure they’ll really appreciate this post. It is also a self-congratulatory message for myself. If some of you don’t like, I don’t care if you complain or allege the post is weak.For those EBP who manage to survive law school, graduation comes with feelings of mixed emotions. Of course they are happy to be done with the 3 year ass whipping that is law school, but are also dreading the preparation to study for the Bar exam.During the time when an EBP is studying for the Bar, they will not be visible to their social circle, unless it consists of other EBP studying for the Bar. Many of you may not even know your EBP friend is studying for the Bar. There is good reason for this. An EBP will not tell many people that he/she is studying for the Bar, because the next thing out of the other person’s mouth will be, “When are the results coming out?” I hated that question. It’s like saying, “Let me know, so I can talk about you behind your back if you fail.”In contrast, once an EBP has passed the Bar, all hell breaks out. Everybody in the world will know. It will be in theie status on Facebook, AIM or whatever instant message program they use. If you know an EBP who took the Bar and passed, you will probably be part of a mass text message informing you of their passing. The pastor will announce it in church and their parents will call every relative they hate or never talked to, to rub it in their faces.The pressure will now be on for the new attorney to wear business attire everyday and distribute business cards to every person they meet. Don’t talk about them though, they deserve to relish in the glory for a while. However, if they’re still doing a little too much after a month or so, tell them to give it a rest.http://www.stuffebplike.com/?p=163
