Survey Results & Takeaways

For the 10-day period from the period of June 18th thru the last response which (I believe) was yesterday, June 28th.survey1

Takeaway 1: As you can see, you should not be panicking that you aren’t at a certain percentage by today, the vast majority of your peers are in the same boat – over 77% of them, if you want to go by this survey. Yes, I am aware the smaller the sample size the greater the margin of error, but working with the best data I have available, it certainly seems that the trend at the moment is 20-60%, which is a fair distance from the magic number or target percentage your program suggested.

Takeaway 2: In terms of the MBE, which are also fair game for the MEE, 50% of people that answered the survey found that property is the MBE topic they fear most, and that is understandable given the breadth of the topic. Somewhat surprisingly (at least, to me) Constitutional Law is 2nd and Evidence 3rd, suggesting those are the topics that I should focus on but also that – again, temporarily forgetting the margin of error – examinees can focus their studies on to score points in relation to other examinees, AND…

Takeaway 3: that you are not alone in how you feel. I can’t attempt to predict more without further data, such as if it is mortgages and the land sale contract type issues, auction/foreclosure stuff, covenants, servitudes, and easements, etc.

I think this one speaks for itself, but it is interesting to note that this question does not directly correlate with data on percentage complete of a bar prep program. But shake out those nerves and carry on bar preppers – it’s essentially the home stretch.

Survey/Poll – Last Chance!

Hi Folks!
Last week I posted an anonymous survey/poll and was hoping for more responses so that I could do a post on what the data indicates and it is also set for results to be viewable (by you) upon completion. It’s just 3 questions and again, anonymous. The data I am trying to get is where I should focus study aids and strategies or tips on MBE topic-wise, confidence level at ROUGHLY the halfway mark, and % complete at this point. In other words, the questions are which MBE topic you worry about most, selecting a range for your % complete, and choosing an answer to describe your confidence level.

Currently (and surprisingly) Constitutional Law is the most “worriesome” topic for the MBE thus far; I thought it would be property and/or evidence, which are in 2nd and 3rd place. The survey link is https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/X5Y8GMJ or can be found in my original post Here

Keep studying!

Time for a Quick Survey and Post

Just a 3 question survey for examinees to help see if commonalities exist, general confidence, and what MBE topic you feel worst about – even if it is essays on the topic that scare you. It is completely anonymous. You can take the survey HERE!

Evidence Hearsay Flowchart

Good Afternoon All,

Below I have attached two image versions of the hearsay flowchart I created today; initially a friend was supposed to do it, but he incorporated state law distinctions which made it very lengthy and more complicated than what UBE takers need. As always, feel free to contact me (or a member of our little team here) with questions, comments, concerns, requests, etc., via the Contact Page or via our instagram (ubestudying) or Twitter @UBEstudying.

The reason for the two images is that one seems to show color better than the other, but I also have them in two different sizes. If you are saving and printing, just make sure to select the “fit to page” option 🙂

Future Interests

Below is a diagram of Future Interests as currently understood. We are open to hearing what other people think, and will be sure to send out an alert should this diagram fall victim to revision when reviewing the topic. For now, enjoy and note that we turned the image into a link that will open a new tab in your browser so you can see it at a better size before deciding whether or not to save.

Estates Diagram

Please note that I am aware of how small the chart appears in post format and will be looking into ways to resolve this issue, whether it actually results in having the full sized chart show appropriately or inserting a sort of shared dropbox where the files can be downloaded from. In the mean time, right click, select “save image as,” and once you have saved the image open it. It should be the appropriate size and if not, simply zoom in. Apologies for any inconvenience!
