What Puts the “Adapt” in AdaptiBar?


When preparing for the bar exam, knowing what to study is just as important as how you study. With so many law concepts to memorize, it’s easy to get caught up in a single subject and neglect studying for other imperative topics. You may find yourself overwhelmed, wishing that there was an easier way to determine your strengths so that you could more effectively target your weaknesses.

Well, consider your wish granted.

AdaptiBar’s patented adaptive technology tracks your timing and performance as you answer practice MBE questions, then adjusts the presentation of the questions to you according to your strengths and weaknesses. You don’t have to figure out which subjects you excel and struggle in… AdaptiBar’s advanced technology automatically does it for you, creating a personalized study plan that fits your bar exam prep needs.

As you answer questions from the six areas of law that appear on the MBE – Contracts, Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, Real Property, Evidence, and Torts – the technology evaluates the subjects and subtopics, Homicide for example, that you are not performing as proficiently in and feeds you more questions from those specific areas. This allows for more efficient studying because, as the program adapts to your needs, you are always refining your weaknesses instead of revisiting your strengths.  Talk about a time-saver!

Timing is another critical aspect of taking the bar exam, one that AdaptiBar’s advanced technology is designed to help you refine. The MBE is comprised of 200 multiple-choice questions that must be answered in six hours. This gives you 1.8 minutes, or 1 minute and 48 seconds, to answer each question. Of course, attempting to keep track of how long you spend answering each practice question can distract you from the actual content you are studying. Instead, allow AdaptiBar’s advanced technology to manage and improve your internal timing for you. The program continuously monitors how long it takes you to answer each prep question and charts your accuracy rate in comparison to response time. Ever wondered how long you should actually spend answering each question during the bar exam to achieve optimal test results? As you prep, AdaptiBar continuously calculates your “sweet spot”, the interval of time you are most likely to answer test questions correctly, to maximize results on exam day.

AdaptiBar’s advanced technology provides you with an efficient and personalized way to study. Not to mention, AdaptiBar’s Message Center featured on the ‘Home’ page after you log in also evaluates your bar exam prep results and provides you with personalized feedback on how to most productively use your study time. An important note, however, is that the program’s advanced technology is only applied when you study in Practice Questions mode, as Practice Exam mode is designed to replicate real-life bar exam conditions where content is not given to you based on your strengths and weaknesses. AdaptiBar suggests that you primarily study in Practice Questions mode while prepping for the bar exam to continually monitor your progress and performance. You can narrow the topics that the program presents to you in this mode as well.

To see AdaptiBar’s adaptive technology at work, look under the ‘Subject Performance’ and ‘Subject Analysis’ panels under the ‘Performance’ tab. There, you can see graphical representations of your strengths and weaknesses as well as your performance over time to monitor your progress. Or, to analyze your timing and determine your “sweet spot”, check the ‘Timing Performance’ and ‘Timing Analysis’ panels, also under the ‘Performance’ tab.

So what exactly puts the “adapt” in AdaptiBar? It’s the program’s patented advanced technology that adapts to you. By targeting your weaknesses and determining your optimal timing to maximize accuracy, AdaptiBar provides you with a personalized and effective way to study that not only predicts your future MBE score with proven accuracy, but assists you in successfully passing the bar exam.
