MBE Memorization Quiz: Test What You Know!

It is important to memorize the nuances of the law if you want to pass the MBE. After all, the MBE tests the nuances. The MBE does not test if you have a general understanding of the law. Below, please find our MBE memorization quiz to see if you are on track.

If you take our MBE memorization quiz and find you don’t do too well, it may be worth it to review these strategies to memorize your bar exam outlines.

MBE Quiz

You might wonder if you have enough law memorized. We have compiled a quiz that tests straight memorization. It does not test application of the law. It does not test understanding. It simply tests whether you have the law memorized. We wrote a post about this a few weeks ago and readers found it very helpful, so we decided to repost this quiz in a slightly different format.

In our MBE quiz PDF, which you can download below, there are four questions on each topic. After each question set, there are the answers. You can answer all 28 questions in a row. Or you can answer them subject by subject. Whatever you prefer! With the limited amount of questions, this quiz does not cover every portion of the law. The questions were picked at random. It is merely to give you a general gauge of how you are performing overall!

You should aim for a minimum score of above 60%. Ideally, you should be getting about 75% or more of these questions correct.
