What Are The Most Useful Bar Exam Study Materials?
Chances are that if you’ve landed on this article, you’re looking for Bar Exam supplements, resources, and tools. If you’re in search of helpful materials beyond what’s offered through traditional bar prep courses, you’re in the right place! While bar prep courses are an extremely useful tool, many students take advantage of additional supplemental materials. From MBE supplements to private tutoring, this article will help break down the most popular and useful bar exam study materials.
What Are The Most Useful Bar Exam Study Materials?
JD-Advising’s one-sheets are an extremely useful tool that many students love when it comes to Bar Exam preparation. A one-sheet is a concise overview of the law tested throughout the MBE portion of the Bar Exam that we fit onto one page. Many students quickly realize that the sheer volume of rules and governing law on the Bar Exam can be overwhelming. Having a one-sheet is an efficient and effective method to quickly study and learn the law. All the relevant law is condensed onto both sides of an 8.5×11 sheet (hence the name “one-sheet”) and is presented clearly and concisely. Make sure to check out all of JD Advising’s one-sheets here!
Private Bar Exam Tutors
First things first – Not everyone needs a private Bar Exam tutor in order to pass the exam. However, a Bar Exam tutor can be an extremely helpful and personalized support resource when preparing for the Bar Exam. Having a Bar Exam tutor can help students who struggle with certain subjects or have trouble with their bar prep courses. They can help you pinpoint what you’re doing wrong and give you tips and suggestions to correct mistakes you might not even realize you’re making. In addition, tutors can be a great way to take a new approach to the Bar Exam altogether if you’re a repeat test-taker. Many times, a tutor can provide custom materials that have helped students pass the exam and that aren’t available elsewhere.
JD Advising’s private tutor program is consistently called upon by AmLaw firms and top-tier law schools. Our advice has been featured in Above the Law, the National Jurist, and other major publications. Kim Kardashian even gave us a shoutout on Instagram for our personalized bar exam questions! We believe in an efficient and personalized approach to bar exam preparation. We provide substantive law assistance, study techniques and habits, and outlines that are precisely tailored.

Students are often disappointed at the quality of the MBE questions included with their bar prep courses. This is because many bar prep courses do not use previously administered, real MBE questions and instead make up their own! That’s right, after spending thousands of dollars on a bar prep course, you often aren’t provided real MBE questions to practice with. This is an issue for many test-takers when the Bar Exam rolls around when they realize formatting, styling, and difficulty aren’t consistent between questions.
Many students find that practicing real MBE questions is often invaluable when preparing for the Bar Exam. Although there are several MBE supplements to help students, JD Advising’s MBE QBank is one of the largest! Our QBank is made up of actual MBE questions that were tested on previous administrations of the Bar Exam. We also offer explanations for each answer choice so you can better understand why the right answer is correct and wrong answers were not. In addition, we offer comprehensive tools that help you track your progress and areas of strengths and weaknesses. The MBE QBank is even accessible from your smartphone, tablet, or laptop!
Performance Test Supplements
Just as with the MBE resources included in your bar prep course, many students find they need more practice. Bar prep courses generally include a limited number of performance tests to complete. If you’re going to practice performance tests, why not use the real deal? Past performance tests, along with released answers, are a huge help to students. Previously released performance tests can get test-takers familiar with the style in which these essay questions are written. Previously released answers can allow students to see what successful elements are included in a stellar answer.
JD Advising offers a host of MPT services! These include MPT tutoring, MPT seminars, MPT feedback, and MPT books. Our MPT books feature real previously administered MPT questions and answers. In addition, the MPT books contain official examiner analysis to help students get an idea of what graders look for.
