real mbe questions, jd advising mbe questions, ncbe mbe questions, best mbe questions


Having difficulty tracking down real Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) questions? Are you sick of seeing the same questions over and over again? Don’t worry, we have you covered! JD Advising now allows you to purchase real MBE questions that are promulgated from the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE). The NCBE is the organization that writes the bar exam. Every question is released by the NCBE, making it the absolute best gauge of whether you are on track to pass the bar exam.

These questions we offer are written by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) which makes them much better than questions invented by a commercial course. They are more representative of what you will see on the actual bar exam. And they are the most recent questions available — they were released at the end of 2017. The NCBE has stated: “The questions are representative of the content in the MBE and are intended to familiarize candidates with MBE-style questions” and that the questions “can be used as a self-assessment tool for candidates seeking bar admission.” These questions are different from the ones in the Strategies and Tactics 6th Edition. They were made available recently so we know of no other company that offers them yet. They are extremely well written and difficult questions. These questions will give you an excellent gauge of whether you are on track to pass the bar exam. So if you are looking for some new and different practice questions, get these recently released NCBE questions in either electronic or hard-copy format.


  1. By subject: This means you will have 30 questions for each of the 7 subjects for a total of 210 questions. They are organized by subject (e.g., first you will see 30 questions for each of the seven subjects, divided by subject: Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts & Sales, Criminal Law & Procedure, Evidence, Torts, and Real Property. You will receive answer explanations for each question.
  2. Mock bar exam format: This is a 200 question exam in a “mixed exam” format. This mimics the real MBE and is in the same format as the real MBE. It has a “Part 1” which is 100 questions, and a Part 2, which is questions 101-200. You will receive answer explanations for each question.


  • The 200 NCBE questionswhich you have the option to order by subject or an exam format that is identical to that of the real bar exam. (All 7 subjects are tested equally with about 30 questions per subject. This includes NCBE-promulgated Civil Procedure questions!) Technically, you will receive 210 questions if you order the questions “by subject” rather than as a “mixed” exam.
  • short answer key which is one page with all answers with no explanations. This is a quick guide so you can tally up how many questions you answered correctly.
  • lengthy answer key with explanations for each question as to why one answer choice is correct and why the other three questions are not correct.

Thus, when you order these released NCBE questions, not only do you receive the questions and short answers, you also receive detailed answer explanations so that you know why one answer choice is correct and why the other three are incorrect.

Note: you have the option of purchasing these with our MBE Favorites lecture. The MBE Favorites lecture is a fantastic overview of the “favorite” issues that the NCBE tests.



Frequently Asked Questions

I JUST WANT TO BUY CIVIL PROCEDURE QUESTIONS. CAN I DO THAT?  Yes. You can purchase them here. Unfortunately, they are pricey (in part because the license by the NCBE is pricey!). You have the option to purchase them in an electronic format only. These are real Civil Procedure MBE questions promulgated by the NCBE. There are 30 questions total, with 30 detailed explanations. It is 26 pages and is in black and gold font. This option is available for those who are truly only looking for released Civil Procedure MBE questions. Note also that if you purchase them with the mixed exam or the exam-by-subject, you will see overlap between the two so we do not recommend purchasing both. 
HOW LONG IS THE MBE TEST? The 200-question test with answer explanations is 170 pages. The questions divided by subject (30 questions per seven subjects) is 174 pages. They are both in black and white font. 
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE IT?You will receive the electronic copy instantly. (You will find the link in the “thank you for your order” email. Be sure to check your spam box if you do not receive it!) If you order the hard copy as well, you will receive that via Priority mail. We will send it the next business day along with a tracking number. Most customers receive the packet within one to two days. 
ARE THESE QUESTIONS AVAILABLE THROUGH MY COURSE? To our knowledge, neither Barbri, Kaplan, nor Strategies and Tactics offer these questions. They are very recently released (end of 2017) by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. If you are unsure, please ask your bar review company as they should be able to tell you the answer better than we can. 
CAN I BUY THESE DIRECTLY FROM THE NCBE? Yes, you can! However, there are two main differences between the exam that we offer and the questions the NCBE offers (1) First, the NCBE does not offer answer choice explanations. So if you answer a question incorrectly, you will not be able to see why it is incorrect. This makes it very limited in its usefulness as it will make it hard to learn from your mistakes if you don’t want to spend a lot of your own time researching. (And some of these questions are quite tricky!) (2) Second, we have the option to purchase the question in an MBE exam format. The NCBE breaks down the questions by subject rather than offering them in an exam format. If you are looking for a gauge of how you do in a mixed-question exam, the exam format resource is better for your needs. However, we also have the option to purchase it by subject so that you can see the questions divided by subject.
WHAT IS THE MBE FAVORITES LECTURE? The MBE Favorites lecture is a pre-recorded series that was created in 2018 and covers the Examiners “favorite” issues to test on the NCBE. Many of these issues have been tested in 1990 and continue to be tested in the questions released by the NCBE almost 30 years later in 2017!  You can read more about the MBE Favorites series here
