The bar exam is the Olympus Mons of academic undertakings, and if you feel like you’re getting nowhere with your bar prep, it could be because you’ve hobbled yourself to inefficient study techniques. We’ve been there: it’s like trying to summit a mountain with a 40-pound dumbbell in your backpack… and only an idiot would do that! … right?

Well, shed the weight and pick up the pace with Brainscape’s MBE flashcards, which can literally halve the amount of time you spend trying to memorize the megalithic volume of content assessed by the bar!

How, I hear you ask?

With cognitive science (and a bit of elbow grease by Brainscape’s panel of top test prep experts and publishers).

Developed by a team of attorneys and legal educators

Brainscape's MBE flashcards were developed by a team of Attorneys from UCLA School of Law, along with learning scientists from Yale and Columbia Universities. The team recognized that the tools provided in full-service bar review programs (BarBri, Kaplan, Themis, etc.) were not aligned with the demands of today’s bar exam, which requires you to quickly recall and apply bite-sized portions of law content.

Brainscape’s team spent thousands of hours researching existing bar prep content, scouring past exams, and breaking down the curriculum into the most convenient and digestible form possible. We then tested our sample flashcards with dozens of top law students to refine our content, and now THOUSANDS of top students have used our flashcards to boost their MBE score and study for the bar exam more efficiently.

The most comprehensive MBE study supplement

Our MBE course contains nearly 2,500 flashcards that provide an in-depth review of all major subject areas on the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE): Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Evidence, Real Property, and Torts. And we’ve included a Rapid Fire Deck that quickly tests the black letter law for each subject.

We ALSO have the best study audio accompaniment in the world. (Yeah, you heard us right.) Brainscape’s MBE Hands-Free Studying videos make learning ridiculously easy by reading out the key questions with enough time for you to answer, followed by the answers. This empowers you to juggle studying and ... literally anything else.

You can learn faster and remember for longer

The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.

Our "secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of law content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
