Answering your Most-Commonly Asked AdaptiBar Questions

At AdaptiBar, we love talking to users and answering all of your questions. If it’s a question you’ve had, we believe others can benefit from the answer as well. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the most-commonly asked AdaptiBar questions:

Who writes AdaptiBar’s exam questions?
Every question in the AdaptiBar program in the areas of Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law, Evidence, Real Property, and Torts is written and licensed by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE), which is the organization that writes the questions that appear on the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE). The only simulated questions in AdaptiBar are those in Civil Procedure, the seventh subject first tested on the MBE in February 2015. Since so few Civil Procedure questions have appeared on the exam, there are a limited number of licensed questions are currently available.
Every question in AdaptiBar is accompanied by a detailed explanation written by legal experts for why options A, B, C, and D are correct or incorrect. Our full-time legal staff members are constantly reviewing the questions to make sure that they reflect the same form and content as the questions that you will see on the exam.

Can’t I purchase the questions from the NCBE on my own?
Yes, however, when you purchase questions directly from the NCBE, they don’t always come with explanations of correct and incorrect answers. You can practice with the questions, but if you get one wrong, you may have to figure out why on your own. Additionally, the NCBE only offers a few hundred licensed questions for purchase, while AdaptiBar has access to all 1,743.

They added Civil Procedure to the MBE, does AdaptiBar account for that?
Yes! We hired two of the nation’s leading Civ Pro professors to write 200 simulated questions. These questions are available in both Practice Questions mode and Practice Exams mode. We also use an additional 40 officially-licensed questions direct from the NCBE.

Are there outlines or books when I enroll?
No, AdaptiBar is entirely online! With AdaptiBar, you can study anytime, anywhere on a computer or mobile device. Plus, you can benefit from real-time performance feedback and program updates.
Furthermore, AdaptiBar is a supplemental program meant to be used in conjunction with a comprehensive course such as BarBri. Use the AdaptiBar program to diagnose your weak areas (i.e. Negligence) then refer to your comprehensive course outlines and lecture notes to study that specific area of law.

How do I access AdaptiBar?

I have a discount code, how can I apply it? Only one discount or referral code can be applied per new enrollment. You must enter the discount or referral code in the Discount Code field at the time of your enrollment – no exceptions.

Yes, AdaptiBar offers a Baby Bar program to prepare you for the MBE portion of the exam.
