Answering your Most-Commonly Asked AdaptiBar Questions


At AdaptiBar, we love talking to users and answering all of your questions. If it’s a question you’ve had, we believe others can benefit from the answer as well. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the most-commonly asked AdaptiBar questions:

Who writes AdaptiBar’s exam questions? Every question in the AdaptiBar program in the areas of Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law, Evidence, Real Property and Torts is written and licensed by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE), which is the organization that writes the questions that appear on the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE). The only simulated questions in AdaptiBar are those in Civil Procedure, the seventh subject first tested on the MBE in February 2015. Since no Civil Procedure questions have appeared on the exams, no licensed questions are currently available.

Every question in AdaptiBar is accompanied by a detailed explanation written by legal experts for why options A, B, C and D are correct or incorrect. Our full-time legal staff members are constantly reviewing the questions to make sure that they reflect the same form and content as the questions that you will see on the exam.

Can’t I purchase the questions from the NCBE on my own? Yes, however, when you purchase questions directly from the NCBE, they don’t always come with explanations of correct and incorrect answers. You can practice with the questions, but if you get one wrong, you may have to figure out why on your own. Additionally, the NCBE only offers a few hundred licensed questions for purchase, while AdaptiBar has access to all 1,530.

They added Civil Procedure to the MBE, does AdaptiBar account for that? Yes! We hired two of the nation’s leading Civ Pro professors to write 200 simulated questions. These questions are available in both Practice Questions mode and Practice Exams mode.

Are there outlines or books when I enroll? No, AdaptiBar is entirely online! With AdaptiBar, you can study anytime, anywhere on computer or mobile device. Plus, you can benefit from real-time performance feedback and program updates.

Furthermore, AdaptiBar is a supplemental program meant to be used in conjunction with a comprehensive course such as BarBri. Use the AdaptiBar program to diagnose your weak areas (i.e. Negligence) then refer to your comprehensive course outlines and lecture notes to study that specific area of law.

How do I access AdaptiBar? After enrolling, you may log in at Click the Login button in the upper right hand corner of the page. If you are on a mobile device, simply visit in your Internet browser. You must have an Internet connection to access the program.

I have a discount code, how can I apply it? Only one discount or referral code can be applied per new enrollment. You must enter the discount or referral code in the Discount Code field at the time of your enrollment – no exceptions. No discounts apply to re-enrollments or enhanced options: MBE flashcards and Online Video Lectures. If you had entered a code when registering for the free trial, it will automatically be applied when you enroll using the same email address.

Can I print out exam questions? Technically, you have to answer the questions online in the program, as we do not allow you to print unanswered questions. The point of AdaptiBar is the online platform that allows you to have access from any computer or mobile device, receive real-time performance feedback, pick up right where you left off, and benefit from the patented, adaptive technology that automatically adjusts to your needs. You can, however, print exam reports with the answers not highlighted, which allows you to test yourself on paper. To do this:

  1. Go into Practice Exam mode and create an exam
  2. Before answering any questions in the exam, simply click “End Exam” and submit it for grading
  3. You will then be presented with the exam report. Click the “Hide Markings” button in the top right corner
  4. Print the report

This way, the explanations will still be shown below each question, but the correct answer will not be highlighted, making it easier for you to test yourself.

Does AdaptiBar have an app? No, not at this time. However, we have plans to launch a native app in the near future. Once the app is available, all users will be notified. Meanwhile, we recommend using the free mobile site that is formatted just like an app. You can access the mobile site on your phone or tablet through the Internet browser on your device. If you are on your mobile device, visit and the website will automatically redirect you to the mobile site. You may also go directly to

I have to take the Baby Bar (or First Year Law Student Exam – FYLSE), can AdaptiBar prepare me for that? Yes, AdaptiBar offers a Baby Bar program to prepare you for the MBE portion of the exam. The Baby Bar program offers all of the great features that AdaptiBar is known for, the only differences are that the Baby Bar program concentrates on the 3 MBE subjects you’ll be tested on (Contracts, Criminal Law and Torts), and the NCBE Online Practice Exams are not included. To learn more about the Baby Bar program, visit AdapitBar’s website.
