Are you thinking about using AdaptiBar for your MBE prep and want to learn more? Then this blog is for you! We’ve put together a list of 8 things that make AdaptiBar the best choice for your MBE prep.
1. AdaptiBar’s Free Trial
With so many bar prep options on the market, the choice can be overwhelming. We believe in transparency and want you to know exactly what to expect from our program before you buy. As part of this commitment, we offer a simulated free trial of the program called Test Drive.
Test Drive is laid out exactly like our real program and features simulated questions so you can familiarize yourself with the program before enrolling. Test Drive is a no-strings-attached free trial—it does not save your login information, has no end date, and doesn’t require a credit card to sign up, so you can upgrade at any time!

2. Pairing AdaptiBar with your Comprehensive Course
There are two important things to know about using AdaptiBar as your supplemental MBE program.
First and foremost, you do not need to wait for your comprehensive course to begin using AdaptiBar. If you are enrolled in the current session, you can log in immediately and get a head start on your MBE prep!
Once your comprehensive course starts, we recommend primarily following their schedule and simply replacing their simulated MBE questions with AdaptiBar’s licensed questions. This way, you aren’t doubling the amount of work; you’re simply practicing with questions that most closely represent what you can expect to see on the actual bar exam.
3. Getting Started
If you need help getting started in the program, we’ve got your back. AdaptiBar is designed to be a self-paced study program. While we don’t enforce a strict study schedule, we do have a Preparation Method! This method outlines the way we recommend using the program and is intended to provide guidance to those looking for it. You can learn our recommended prep method by watching this short video or reading the AdaptiBar Guide!
4. Practice Questions vs. Practice Exams
When practicing in Practice Questions mode, it is guaranteed that you won’t see any repeat questions until you have exhausted every question available for a subject. In this mode, our adaptive algorithm actively tracks your question progress, chooses questions to address your area of weakness, and ensures you don’t see repeat questions. This is the mode in which we recommend users spend the bulk of their time.
You can review your past questions at any time! You can go back to look at previously answered questions by going to Performance–>Past Questions. Here, select the subject(s) you wish to review and whether you want to see correct/incorrect or all questions. If you only want to see questions from a day or date range, you can do that too! Then, choose to either Generate Report or View as PDF.
Practice Exams mode, however, is designed to give you more control in generating customized exams for yourself. The program will randomly select questions to include in your exam, based on the subjects/subtopics you wish to add. In this mode, you may see repeat questions. We typically recommend only implementing this mode a few weeks out from the bar exam.
5. NCBE Practice Exams
Under our Practice Exams tab, there are four NCBE Practice Exams available to help simulate exam day conditions – two MBE Complete Practice Exams and two MBE Study Aids Exams.
The National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) recently released 200 licensed MBE questions. All 200 new questions have been added to the AdaptiBar MBE Simulator and Prep program and can now be taken as two complete 100-question MBE practice exams within AdaptiBar.
In Practice Questions mode, you can choose to “Exclude MBE Complete Practice Exam Questions” and “Exclude MBE Study Aid Questions.” Checking these boxes will withhold the questions on those exams when answering in Practice Questions mode. Later, when you take one of the NCBE Practice Exams, you won’t run the risk of seeing any repeat questions.
6. Free Mobile App
Studying on the go? AdaptiBar’s free app is available for download on iOS and Android devices. The app allows you the same access to the program as you have on the desktop, and can be used offline if you’re logged in. Don’t forget to sync your app so that your stats can be updated!
7. Video Lectures with Jonathan Grossman
Video lectures are presented by Professor Jonathan Grossman, the country’s top MBE expert. He has years of experience distilling black letter law into concise, understandable portions, and is also equally well-versed in teaching students how to apply that knowledge on the MBE. Honestly, he may be the best lecturer you’ve ever experienced!
AdaptiBar combines the expertise of Professor Grossman with the most advanced technology in standardized test prep. AdaptiBar lectures can be purchased by subject, subtopic (e.g. Individual Rights), or together as a discounted bundle. The unique “Mastering the MBE” video covers bar strategy and an easy 3-step process that will teach you how to approach an MBE question. He also covers the most common mistakes examinees make and how to correct them. Learn more about video lectures!
8. Patented, Adaptive Technology and Performance Analysis
AdaptiBar is well-known for its technology that allows upcoming bar examinees to customize their learning, target their weaknesses, and track their timing and subject performance. As you answer questions in Practice Questions Mode, the program’s technology automatically adjusts the presentation of the questions to you according to your weaknesses, while still refining your strengths. You can see a visual representation of your specific strengths and weaknesses by looking under the ‘subject performance’ and ‘subject analysis’ tabs. You can also determine your “sweet spot” timing or the time at which you answer questions with the greatest accuracy, utilizing the ‘timing performance’ and ‘timing analysis’ tabs.
Not only does AdaptiBar’s adaptive technology simplify your studying, but it provides you with the most efficient method of prepping for the MBE possible. And, because it’s patented, you won’t find anything like it anywhere else on the market.
