Frequently asked questions
How is Quimbee MBE Review structured?
Quimbee MBE Review is a week-long intensive program. You’ll begin the course by learning about key strategies for passing the MBE. Next, you’ll take a diagnostic practice exam made up of real, licensed MBE questions, which will identify the most important bar exam topics for you to study. From there, you’ll spend the next few days drilling through MBE practice questions and reviewing the answer explanations. Finally, your MBE review course will culminate with a test run of the real MBE—200 multiple choice questions administered over two, three-hour sessions in a single day. By the time you’re done, you’ll feel confident and ready to own the MBE.

Who is Quimbee MBE Review for?

- wants to supplement a state-specific or comprehensive bar review course

When should I take the Quimbee MBE Review?
Our online MBE prep course is on-demand, so you can take it anytime you want. We recommend that you take our course as close as you can to your scheduled bar exam (ideally within four weeks of your exam date).
Can I rely on Quimbee MBE Review to prepare me for the entire bar exam?
No. Quimbee MBE Review is intended to prepare you for the MBE (i.e., the multistate section) only. This course will not prepare you for the essay, skills, or any state-specific portions of the bar exam. You should ensure that you are prepared for these areas of the bar exam, either by purchasing a complete bar review course (like Quimbee Bar Review) or studying on your own.
What if I fail the MBE?
We guarantee you’ll pass the bar exam, or you’ll get to retake Quimbee MBE Review for free. All you need to do is provide proof that you failed the bar exam, and we’ll allow you to retake. This means that you can retake our MBE course as many times as you need to pass.
I already bought a full bar review course; do I need Quimbee MBE Review?
In a word, yes! The MBE generally counts for 50% of your total score on the bar exam. This means that the MBE is, by far, the most important part of the test. Not a single minute of time you spend preparing to take the MBE is wasted. Quimbee’s MBE course will focus exclusively on helping you develop the skills and strategies you’ll need to ace the MBE.
What is the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE)?
The MBE is a 200 question, multiple-choice test administered over six hours that typically accounts for 50% of your bar exam score. The MBE was created by the NCBE and is purchased by participating state bar examiners. The MBE is administered twice per year (February and July) on a single day of the bar examination in every state and U.S. jurisdiction, except Louisiana, and tests on seven subjects: civil procedure, constitutional law, contracts, criminal law and procedure, evidence, torts, and real property.
