I loved the MBE Guide! It really helped me understand some confusing topics in each area. It had great examples and focused on smaller topics that I know myself and others were getting confused on. I would recommend it to all bar takers. – Purchaser of MBE Guide

This guide was THE SINGLE BEST piece of material I feel I could have purchased to prep for the Ohio bar. I wish someone would have told me about it sooner. It was great; great tips, lots of help with problem areas, and I really think I got much more insight into the way to think about and approach MBE questions. – Purchaser of MBE Guide

I recommend the MBE guide wholeheartedly. It really helped me to conceptualize complex topics such as evidence and free speech. The guide also provided comfort at review time because the most important topics are concisely and simply there. – Purchaser of MBE Guide

I found the MBE Guide and the MEE one sheets as valuable study guides. Everything was well organized which in turn made me feel more confident while studying and taking the bar exam. – Purchaser of MBE Guide
