Overview

This title addresses the age-old problem for law students: I know the information, but how do I prove it on the test? The MBE is comprised of 200 multiple choice questions and takes the typical law student a minimum of six hours to complete. The test is one of three teasts all law students must pass in order to be licensed to practice. While there are tried and true methods reviewed in law schools practicing skills needed in essay writing for school and exams, there are no techniques or skills taught for passing this important multiple choice test.

This book is designed to help law students become efficient and skilled at answering the type of multiple-choice questions that they will encounter on this exam. Its purpose is to help law students in developing test-taking techniques. While this book does not contain sample questions, it encourages students to use the other books of sample questions that they will have purchased for their review course.
