The most current version is only available directly from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Sterling Test Prep web store. This book was developed through an analysis of prior MBE exams to identify questions that are best able to predict success or failure on the bar examination. The outlines describe principles of substantive law, which most often govern the correct answer to most questions on each section of the MBE: ∙ Constitutional law ∙ Contract law ∙ Criminal law ∙ Evidence ∙ Property law ∙ Tort law ∙ Federal jurisdiction MBE Essentials: Governing Law describes the principles of substantive law, which most often governs the correct answers to Multistate Bar Examination Questions. The performance of candidates on individual questions has been correlated with success or failure on the bar examination.Through an analysis of these statistics, we have been able to identify those questions that are best able to predict success or failure on the bar examination and put together the outlines of laws that govern those questions. Students should learn these important governing law principles in order to determine the answers to the questions on the MBE. These rules of law will likely determine the answers to more than half of the questions on each section of the MBE. Knowing these principles helps to make a decision between two tough choices; it is important to have this knowledge to get a passing score on the exam.
