Recognition versus Recall: How Write for the Bar can help you
improve your MBE Score, too.

The MBE is a tricky exam where knowledge and practice of the law cannot be underestimated. However, the multiple-choice format does provide you with an advantage. There are many clues within the four available choices to help you arrive at the correct answer. This is testing your recognition memory. Do you recognize the issue you’re being asked about?

That said, the MBE is also about recall. This starts by memorizing the law. It’s vital that you don’t focus all of your efforts on the multiple-choice portion. Many students push off studying for their open-ended essay questions; however, by working through bar exam essays, practicing active reading techniques, and writing out substantive knowledge of the law, performance on your MBE section will naturally improve, too. By being able to recall the law and learning it better, you’ll more easily recognize correct versus incorrect answer choices.

This is where Write for the Bar can help. Students who use Write for the Bar have consistently reported an improvement not only in their essays but on their MBE scores, too!

We’re excited for you to start learning and practicing. We look forward to seeing your progress! Day one starts today. Enroll now!

    Is this program (Write for the bar) good for CA exam takers?

    • Write for the Bar is currently tailored for the written portions of the UBE. Unfortunately, this program does not support the CA essay. Although it will soon.

      • Jon says:

        Does Write for the Bar support CA essays now?

        • Writing Guide uses essays and performance tests released by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. At this time, it does not utilize CA specific essays. However, many of the skills emphasized using the NCBE materials are helpful for success on the CA bar exam, including active reading and issue spotting.

          Students who have taken non-UBE states, like CA and FL, have used the Writing Guide to hone active reading and issue spotting skills even if the state specific essays weren’t used.
