CSS for Pillar Pages

Does UWorld use real MBE questions?

Yes. The UWorld MBE® QBank has over 1375 NCBE® licensed questions. In addition to that, we have over 550 questions that are carefully modeled after actual MBE questions released by NCBE.

How much does UWorld’s MBE QBank cost?

We have different pricing options based on when you are planning to take the MBE (February or July). You can visit our MBE Courses to learn more about our pricing options.

Do you have a free trial?

Yes! Our 7-day free trial gives you access to 50 of our MBE-styled questions. When you upgrade, you will gain access to over 1,950+ questions. This includes over 1,375+ questions from past MBE exams.

Does the free trial include licensed questions?

No. The free trial includes simulated questions written by our team of attorneys and law professors. The simulated questions are carefully modeled after actual MBE questions released by NCBE®.

How can you use flashcards on the UWorld MBE QBank?

You can easily create digital flashcards by quickly adding content from the answer explanations, or by entering your own notes. You can also use the spaced repetition feature, an evidence-based learning technique to improve your retention. Using spaced repetition, newly introduced and difficult flashcards are shown more frequently, while older and less difficult flashcards are shown less frequently. 

How do I interpret the UWorld MBE QBank performance report?

UWorld’s MBE QBank provides a simplified report you can use to understand your overall performance, identify your weak subjects, and, within one click, start practicing questions from that specific subject. 

Is the UWorld MBE QBank Adaptive?

The UWorld MBE QBank is based on an active-learning approach where students have complete control over their learning. While the questions presented in a custom test are not adaptive, reporting tools give you insights on your performance to identify their weaker areas so that you can improve. 

Is there a UWorld MBE QBank App?

Yes. The UWorld MBE QBank App is available on both Android and iOS devices. The mobile app lets you practice with questions on the go. The app requires a valid subscription to access the course material. 

Do you offer a discount?

We occasionally offer individual discounts in extraneous circumstances. For example, the COVID-19 global pandemic imposed financial hardships on many 2020 bar exam candidates, so we offered a discount on our MBE QBank for a limited time.

We are currently offering bulk discounts for groups of six or more. You can reach out to UWorld Support if you are interested in learning more about the bulk purchase discount or any other active discounts.

Does UWorld offer any re-enrollment discounts?

We aren’t offering a re-enrollment discount at this time, but please check back with us when you would like to re-enroll.

How many licensed questions do you have? Do you have the newest questions released by the NCBE®?

We have licensed over 1,375+ questions from the NCBE. These include all of the newest NCBE questions (over 620 in total). The remaining questions date back as far as 1992. Since the NCBE adjusted the format and style of MBE over ten years ago (changes summarized here), we have updated all of the older NCBE questions to match what you will see on the current MBE.

How many questions do you have in each of the subjects tested in the MBE?

We currently have over 250 questions on each of the seven subjects tested on the MBE and are constantly working on developing additional questions for you.

How many simulated questions do you have and who writes them?

Because the licensed NCBE questions do not cover all of the topics tested on the MBE, our team of attorneys and law professors has carefully drafted around 550+ simulated MBE questions to round out your studies. We are continuously improving our existing content and developing new content that will help you prepare for the bar exam. As a result, the number of questions in our MBE QBank will likely increase over the course of your studies.

How can I tell the difference between a licensed and simulated MBE question?

Each question licensed from the NCBE has a copyright attribution (©) located at the bottom of the explanation, so you can easily identify which questions were written by the NCBE and which questions were written by our UWorld team. But we doubt that you’ll be able to tell otherwise since our team meticulously reviews each question to ensure that it perfectly matches the NCBE’s style.

Can I print my notes and flashcards?

At this time, you cannot print flashcards, but you can print any notes created in the UWorld MBE QBank. Click on ‘Tools’ on the left side of your screen, then select ‘Notes’ from the drop-down menu. All of your notes will appear on your screen. To print them, simply click the printer icon located in the upper-righthand corner.

Why do I need to take a supplemental course?

Most students who prepare for the bar exam enroll in a comprehensive course. Although these courses prepare you for all aspects of the bar exam, many only provide you with simulated MBE questions. The MBE is typically the most critical component of the bar exam, and the best way to prepare is by practicing with questions that are representative of the actual exam. That’s why we licensed over 1,375+ MBE questions that have appeared on past bar exams.

Additionally, our in-depth explanations and accompanying visuals are unmatched, and our content is written so that anyone can understand the core legal concepts tested on the MBE and apply them successfully on exam day. Not to mention our interactive tools, such as digital flashcards and notes, which promote active learning and help you retain the information you learn. We also provide you with comprehensive reports to help you identify your weak subjects and focus on improving those topics. As a result, our MBE supplemental QBank gives you an edge when preparing for the MBE.

Will my subscription be extended if the bar exam gets canceled or postponed?

Absolutely! If the bar exam you were planning to take gets canceled or postponed, we will extend your access to the QBank until the new exam date.

What does “customizable exams” mean?

It means you can create your own test by choosing from a pool of 1,950+ questions. Our UWorld MBE QBank allows you to select questions from any subject and/or chapter tested on the MBE. You can choose to answer unseen questions or questions that you previously answered incorrectly. You can even choose between ‘Timed’ and ‘Tutor’ mode. This customization gives you full power to personalize your study based on what questions and how many questions you want to answer while studying for the exam.

Does the UWorld MBE QBank work well for international students?

One of the key differences between our MBE QBank and other MBE products is the quality of our explanations. We use illustrations, tables, and charts to ensure that students can grasp the concepts quickly and easily. We also define important legal terms that appear in our explanations to keep you from having to pick up a dictionary. It is especially useful for international students for whom English is their second language.

How is your MBE product different from competitors?

  • We update older MBE questions licensed from the NCBE to ensure that they reflect what students will see on the actual MBE. Our team of attorneys and law professors carefully review each question to ensure that it is relevant and up-to-date. 
  • We approach explanations in a unique way. We focus on developing comprehensive but easily understandable explanations that guide you through the legal analysis for both correct and incorrect answer choices. This method teaches you the skills needed to effectively apply the same rule to other fact scenarios.
  • At UWorld, we reinforce our explanations with images, hyperlinks, and definitions. Vivid imagery complements our explanations so you can better understand the rationales and remember the underlying rules. These professionally created illustrations provide you with yet another tool to improve your studying and succeed on the bar exam.
  • You may create your own flashcards and notes within the QBank, and easily add text, images, flowcharts, and tables onto the flashcards, which you can quickly review later. You can also add our educational objectives to your printable notes or incorporate these rule summaries in your one-sheets. By design, the UWorld MBE QBank serves as a one-stop-shop for all your MBE study needs.
