The Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) is a crucial component of the bar exam testing your knowledge of fundamental legal principles and counting for 50% of your score.  But even after months of studying, many examinees struggle to get even 60% of the questions right on the exam itself.  The key component to success on the MBE is practice, and mobile apps can give examinees (especially those juggling work and studying) the flexibility to practice wherever they are, along with the feedback they need to improve.

Accessibility and Convenience

Your phone is always with you, making it easy to squeeze in short study sessions during your daily commute, lunch break, or even while waiting in line. This flexibility ensures that you can consistently engage with MBE questions and maximize your study time.

Performance Tracking

Apps track your performance and enable you to see the topics you excel in and identify areas that need more attention. Tracking your progress can boost motivation and allow you to make informed adjustments to your study plan.  Some apps, like Pieper’s Mobile Advantage App, allow you to download a pdf report with answer explanations detailing the reasons why you struggled with questions so you can keep track of the particular concepts you missed and re-review them when you have more time.

Immediate Feedback

One of the most significant advantages of using your phone for MBE practice is the instant feedback it provides. After answering a question, you'll receive immediate results, including the correct answer and an explanation of the relevant legal principles. This instant feedback allows you to identify your strengths and weaknesses, helping you focus your study efforts more effectively.

Practice Makes Perfect

In keeping track of your performance, apps allow you to target the questions you’ve gotten wrong in the past to help ensure that you are closing gaps in your understanding. 

Time Management

Apps can help you to improve your time management skills. They can provide insight into how you allocate your time per question, helping you identify areas where you can improve.

Incorporating mobile technology into your bar exam preparation can be a game-changer. The accessibility, convenience, instant feedback, and personalized learning experience make them invaluable tools in your journey to passing the bar exam. By embracing technology and leveraging the advantages it offers, you can place yourself in the best position to succeed.
