Flashcards

  • Quimbee Flashcards were designed for bar study. Covering every topic tested on the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE), Multistate Essay Exam (MEE), and Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE), each card is keyed directly to the National Conference of Bar Examiners' subject-matter outline.
  • Plus, these flashcards now incorporate Spaced Repetition, a method of learning information at gradually increasing intervals shown to optimize recall and understanding of large amounts of information.
