Took the bar last July and happy to report that I passed. I used the Sterling Prep MBE Essentials book and found it extremely helpful. It helped me organize the concepts by substantive topics. The text was easy to understand and had sufficient detail without extraneous content. It covered all the important concepts. A few of my classmates had the book and we formed a study group that met every other day to prepare for the big day. The book really helped us organize the material and offered meaningful content that helped us get ready for the bar exam. Great results for each of use. Yes, law school is behind us...
This book condenses the material in an orderly and easy to understand format. Great coverage of the topics and distinctions are made between similar concepts. Much better prepared for the exam. My roommate used the book last year with high praise. He passed and credits this book with his results. I feel prepared from suing this book. Would recommend it to anyone actively preparing for the bar or to prepared for exams during law school. This book is that good.
Well written. Great review for the MBE topics. Feel much more confident. My roommate from last year used the book for the bar (she passed) and she recommended it to me. I have a solid grasp on important concepts after using this book. Recommend it as a foundation to any bar prep.
Substantive law is covered completely and concisely. It is a great resource to prepare for the bar. We had a study group that used this book to focus our sessions together. We all passed the bar and I know this book helped us both stayed focused and to extract (and learn) important concepts. Nice to have it all is single location. This book really helped me know the material for exam day.
Great content review for the MBE. I attribute this book's review of substantive law to focus me and to give me the edge for the bar. So happy to pass the bar and having confidence as I took the exam. I know that I would do well having mastered the material in this book.
The material in this book gave me the edge on the bar. I felt very confident going into the exam after learning and reviewing the content in the book. It his all the material required for the MBE and is well written and spot on. This exam is too high stakes to not be fully prepared. Glad I used this book to outline my studying. Active studying is much better than nervous fretting. This book was the bedrock for my passing the bar on the first try.
The material is presented in an orderly fashion. Easy to understand and spot on with what I needed for the July 2015 bar. Passed with less stress than my friends that did not have a source for a systematic review. I learned many things I did not know as I graduated. I read the book 3 times over a few months period and knew that the material in the book would ensure that I passed. The MBE is a very important component of passing the bar and, unlike the essays, targeted practice can really make a huge difference. This book should be included in everyone's prep - even if you are taking a commercial bar prep class. This gets to the essence of what you need to know.
Love this book. I only wish it included a Civil Procedure chapter. Contract s, Criminal, Criminal procedure, Property, Torts, Evidence, and Con. Law. The majority of the rules always asked on the MBE. Organized by topic, you can use these ready made rules to memorize for the essays too. Its a win win situation at a great price.
Passed the bar and thanks to this book I felt prepared. I used the book as a reference while in law school and then read it cover to cover a few times to be familiar with the governing law. A high score on multistate is essential to passing the bar and I was prepared. The connect is organized well and covers the important principles I needed on the bar. I did not pay for an expensive prep course (nothing wrong with these just not in my budget after my student debt). I felt as well prepared as my friends with whom that formed a study group as they bar prep took classes. The study group was key to allow me to apply what I was learning and internalizing from my independent studying.
