What is actually tested on Civil Procedure MBE Questions?

What is actually tested on Civil Procedure MBE Questions?

The Emanuels questions are way too long and not even close to real Civil Procedure MBE questions. It is not “bad” to practice invented questions, but the best source of questions are the NCBE-released questions. These are invented by the organization that writes the bar exam. And they are closest to what you will see on test day!  Continue reading What is actually tested on Civil Procedure MBE Questions?
