5 Stars

Many prospective students contact us wondering how to improve their Multistate Bar Exam (“MBE”) score. For those students, the MBE is the reason why they cannot overcome the bar exam. Their struggle with the questions stems from their inability to determine what skills they’re lacking to tackle the MBE. Is it memorization? Comprehension? Application? Timing? Practice? Some combination?

JD Advising has designed an MBE diagnostic test that will provide you with the ability to determine what you need to do differently to pass the MBE. JD Advising’s MBE Diagnostic Test is a test geared to uncover your strengths and your weaknesses. The test focuses on three primary skills: comprehension, memorization, and application. After you take the test, we will provide you with a comprehensive analysis in-person (or over the phone). During that analysis, we will tell you which of the three skills you need to work on. We will also answer any questions you have and help you come up with a schedule so that you can take the next step.

The MBE Diagnostic is a questionnaire that consists of three parts: a multiple-choice portion, and two short-answer portions. It also has a brief “introductory” section where we ask you to answer questions about any past experiences with the bar exam. The questionnaire poses questions on all seven MBE subjects. It is untimed as it is designed to allow you to answer the questions to the best of your knowledge.

A New Approach

We provide you with a new, personalized approach to the multiple-choice portion of the bar exam, so you can see your MBE score improve!


  • > Time commitment: The MBE Diagnostic takes about 2.5 to 3.5 hours to complete. We recommend you take it untimed. We grade the diagnostic very quickly after receiving results (generally within 48 hours). We will then talk with you at an agreed-upon time (during the day or evening) to discuss the results. During the discussion, we will tell you your strengths, as well as what you need to improve on and how you can improve on those skills. We will also help you come up with a study schedule and a plan to make sure that you are able to put our advice into practice. The meeting generally lasts 45-60 minutes.
  • > Timing: We recommend taking the MBE diagnostic early on in your bar prep rather than later. If you sign up for it a week before the bar exam, the results will not help you nearly as much as if you signed up for it two months before.
