New York Essay Subjects Outline Book
AmeriBar’s outlines focus on testability. AmeriBar’s New York outline book, along with the MBE course, detail the law you need to know in order to pass the New York Bar Exam. The outline book contains an intuitive starring system, which highlights important exam topics for efficient study. As a result, you will be more efficient with your study time and free up some time to perfect your approach to essay writing.
Multistate Essay Question and Answer Books
The Multistate Essay Exam is administered in New York. You will receive the best resource for essay exam preparation – actual past Multistate Essay Exam questions (over twenty past exams). You’ll also receive the examiner’s analysis for each question. One of the most effective ways to prepare for the essay exam is to practice answering past essay questions. By reviewing past questions, you’ll learn which issues are often tested, and how common issues should be resolved.
MBE Outline Book
The New York bar review course comes with AmeriBar’s outline book (over 500 pages) covering all of the subjects tested on the MBE including Civil Procedure, Contracts and Sales, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law and Procedure, Evidence, Property, and Torts. This book is specifically developed and updated to address the scope of testing of the MBE. We started with the scope of testability provided by the examiners and refined it with specialized knowledge of testing patterns. As with all of our materials, the focus of the outline book is on testability. It covers the concepts that you must know in order to pass the exam.
MBE Released Questions and Answers Books
You will receive a book containing over 1400 released MBE questions and an additional book containing AmeriBar’s corresponding answers and explanations. The questions in these books have actually appeared on the MultiState Bar Examination. Because they are actual past questions, they are reflective of both the type of question you will face on the exam, as well as the issues you are likely to encounter.
