A popular and long-standing resource for individuals studying for the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE), Strategies & Tactics for the MBE has been thoroughly revised and updated to include new questions and reflect recent changes made by the NCBE to the Multistate Bar Exam. This text is highlighted by more than 550 questions, complete with thorough explanations of right and wrong answers. Detailed advice on how to handle MBE questions on each subject, and a focus on the most popular and trickiest MBE topics helps users to focus their studies. Strategies, such as how to "reword" questions to make them easier to analyze, are included, and explanations are in simple, easy-to-understand language.

Spend most of your time prepping for the MBE because it's worth half of the test! I would spend hours pacing around my apartment reciting black letter rules from the Barbri MBE outlines, then do Barbri questions, then work on this book before bed. I had enough time to do all of the questions in this book and most of the Barbri questions. I ended up earning a 150 on my MBE, which is probably high enough to pass any bar exam despite a less-than-perfect performance on the state law essays or MPTs. (Although I still memorized as much of the state law rules as possible via lots of acronyms that I made up).
This book gives good tips that Barbri doesn't and the questions help a lot. Get this book!
First the not-so-great: NCBE, we all know, is adding Civ Pro to the February 2015 exam, and of course the Strategies and Tactics have no released NCBE material for this subject. New printings of the book come with a card that gives the buyer access to Emanuel's simulated FRCP questions. Keep in mind these are simulated, and I found these questions not as well-crafted as the actual MBE questions. Comparing these 50 simulated questions to the mere 10 questions actually sampled by NCBE shows that the MBE questions are much clearer. There is definitely a noticeable stylistic difference that doesn't make me feel confident in the Emanuel's simulated Civ Pro materials. I've relied on my Themis California materials for Civ Pro, which I've found to be much more stylistically similar to the 10 released sample questions.
Now the good. The tips at the beginning of each chapter are practical and much clearer than anything else I've seen. The Strategies and Tactics also zero-in on those tricky, often-overlooked subtopics that trip applicants up on the real thing (e.g., title insurance in Real Property disputes). On the whole, it seems like these questions are well-selected to give the student a realistic idea of the breadth of testable issues.
The book doesn't only inform you why answers are right or wrong, but gives guidance on how the questions, calls, and choices are constructed, as to help you identify patterns in how the NCBE tests. The book also highlights common traps and "distractors" that help increase your speed and make the inevitable situation where the applicant must "guess" much more informed.
I got the Strategies and Tactics for the MBE2 (the blue book) as well, but only as a supplement to the topics for which I needed extra help. I found the format of book 2 to be odd, placing the correct answers and explanations on the same page as the questions themselves, making it difficult to actually practice. Your best bet is to treat the Strategies and Tactics (red book) as your bible.
