The Seperac Combined MBE Outline subscription consists of everything contained in the MBE Rules module and the MBE Outlines module, plus the Seperac Combined MBE Outline (which essentially merges the prioritized MBE rules with the proportionalized MBE Outline). Accordingly, on the Seperac Combined MBE Outline subscription site, you are able to download the Seperac Combined MBE Outline, the Seperac MBE Outline, the Seperac MBE Rules Outline (All 1,812 NCBE MBE Rules), the Seperac F19 MBE Rules Outline (641 OPE MBE Rules only), the MP3s of the NCBE MBE Rules (all 1,812 NCBE MBE rules) and the MP3s of the OPE MBE Rules (644 OPE MBE Rules only). Please look at and listen to all the samples before you purchase. For example, to prevent copying/sharing, each page is watermarked and I do not identify which MBE rule is associated with which question (although I do state which source each rule is from). In addition, while many examinees love the MP3 voice, others hate it, so please do your due diligence prior to subscribing since I do not offer refunds due to the open nature of my work.
The MBE tests both new topics (based on their current MBE questions) and past topics (based on their released MBE questions). This outline is intended to help you with both by merging my MBE Black Letter Law Outline with my MBE NCBE Rules Outline. This 285 page SEPERAC COMBINED MBE OUTLINE is keyed to the 2019 NCBE Subject Matter outlines and broken down into 176 MBE categories that represent the ABC level items in the 2019 NCBE Subject Matter outlines. For each of the 176 categories, this outline contains the black letter law expected to be tested on the upcoming MBE along with rules for every past tested NCBE MBE question (1,812 rule synopses). In addition, the expected number of MBE questions on the upcoming MBE is reported for each of the 176 categories. There are 25 pages of black letter law for each MBE subject and I regard each page of black letter law as representing one expected MBE question. There are an additional 110 pages of MBE rules built into this outline, making this outline a total of 285 pages. There is no outline of similar size which will better represent the upcoming MBE – the black letter law sections of the SEPERAC COMBINED MBE OUTLINE efficiently tell you what to expect on the current MBE while the built-in MBE rules concisely categorize what was previously tested.
The majority of my time is spent trying to understand the bar exam and make outlines reflective of the exam in such a way that the content is proportioned based on how much it will contribute to your score. For example, the new areas the MBE currently tests are proportionally and contentually covered in this outline. Accordingly, the black letter law portions of this MBE outline only contain the content I expect to be tested to the upcoming MBE (meaning you are somewhat taking calculated risks using my materials). For example, some sections of my outline are much smaller than any similarly sized bar outline. Meanwhile, other sections are much larger than similarly sized outlines. However, subscribers should treat this outline as their MBE study bible because I regard it as more contentually on-point than similarly sized outlines. For example, I strongly believe you can pick up extra MBE points simply from this outline’s coverage of the new MBE areas which most other outlines fail to cover appropriately. In contrast, if something is not significantly covered in the black letter law sections of this outline, I do not regard it as important for the upcoming MBE.
The past MBE topics are reflected in the 1,800+ built-in MBE rules. This outline contains synopses of the law for each of the 1,800+ released NCBE MBE questions (these are the same questions in Adaptibar/Strategies & Tactics, Barmax, etc. and includes rules for the recently released 2019 MBE Study Aid questions). This outline distills the 1,800+ MBE questions into rule statements so examinees can get the gist of what was tested on the released MBE questions without having to go through the questions. This means you will see every legal concept that NCBE has tested (and released as a practice question) from 1991 to present. If you answer the released NCBE questions, this serves as a great second perspective, and if you don’t answer all the released NCBE questions, this serves as an excellent hedge. More so, these rules are organized by category so you can see the different ways each MBE category has been tested. Furthermore, since knowledge is constructed, seeing the rules associated with the black letter law will make it easier for you to understand the law. Put simply, the better you understand the law in this outline, the better you will score on the upcoming MBE and the more likely you will pass the exam.
The UBE Essays subscription is discounted by $75 if you buy these two modules together, but it must be done at the same time (through the $500 Combined MBE Outline + UBE Essays Modules).

Once it becomes available in December, 2019, the Combined MBE and Essay module is a one-time fee of $500 and expires March 1, 2019, meaning if you purchase it today, you can access it up through the Feb 2020 exam along with a few days after (in case you want to make sure you downloaded everything such as the MP3s). Accessing the site after you sign up is very simple – you will receive an email and then you simply go to your Registered Member Page and login using the credentials you entered during the payment process. You will have access to two different modules (UBE Essays and the Combined MBE module) and can toggle between them through the Registered Member Page (or just add the links to your Favorites/Bookmarks). On the pages for each subscription, the materials and be downloaded immediately (you can even use a download manager to download all the contents automatically).
I find it difficult to tell a non-tutee specifically what materials will benefit them the most since what seemingly works for one examinee doesn’t work for another. Some examinees benefit greatly from certain materials, while other do not. For example, a subscriber to the Combined MBE subscription who just passed J19 with an MBE of 133 after failing F19 with an MBE of 113 told me: “Want to begin by saying thank you for all your materials. I received my passing email, finally! Your MBE rules were absolute GOLD. I saw many questions that went hand in hand with your rules. I have also told my buddies who are graduating to 1000% purchase your materials.” When I asked him what aspect of the subscriptions he found most useful/helpful on the exam, he told me “The MBE rules by far were the most helpful.”
Meanwhile, another subscriber to the Combined MBE subscription who passed with a J19 MBE of 149 told me: “If I was to recommend just one product, it would be your 175 page MBE Outline Module. I had the Barbri convisor but I used the MBE outline exclusively. It was the one supplement that gave me all the information I needed without any fluff. I also felt like it followed the test very well. I remember reading the exam and thinking wow yeah that was in the outline the rule is xyz. A close second recommend would be the OPE rules. I got it in July so I didn’t have much time to use it but I think it’s brilliant and a must buy combined with the MBE outline. If I were to offer advice, I would recommend that for the OPE rules to have a table of contents. I ended up tagging each section using my PDF creator. Thank you for all the work you put into your materials and statistics. I will always recommend your products!”
Another subscriber to the Combined MBE subscription who just passed J19 told me: “I passed the BAR with flying colors! Score: July 2018: 249 (MBE Score: 119.6) February 2019: 255 (MBE Score: 123.9) July 2019: 293 (MBE Score 153.7) What an improvement! I knew I had the capability within me to take this exam. I just needed someone to point me in the right direction and give me a step-by-step approach to taking the exam. Surely, you did it! Your content is absolutely astounding and I would dare to say a guaranteed means of passing the BAR exam if one puts the time and effort. From the bottom of my heart, I would like to sincerely thank you for your time on the phone and the email exchanges. I will say that following the failure of the BAR in February, I was extremely down. I flew to Israel to clear my mind and hopefully find the drive to attempt the exam again. I laid in my bed one evening in Jerusalem and decided to go on forums and search for folks who failed the BAR repeatedly. Luckily, I came across a thread of a subscriber of the forum who highly recommended you. Lo and behold, I found Joe Seperac, a fellow Croatian. I immediately purchased a part of your course and added AdaptiBAR too it as well. Truly, thank you. If you would like me to write a more detailed review of your course, I’d be happy to do so without hesitation. I also would like to meet you one day, perhaps at the infamous Croatian church one Sunday in Manhattan or anywhere else that works for you. You deserve to have your curriculum used nationwide because it truly is that much better than what the market offers. Thank you, kind sir and I hope to hear from you soon!”
One repeater (MBE of 117 on first attempt) passed J19 with an MBE of 139.4 and MEE/MPT of 140 after subscribing to the $500 Combined MBE Outline + UBE Essays Modules. The examinee told me the following: “Just wanted to let you know that I passed the Washington UBE with a score of 279. You had predicted that I would score a 290, so not far off! This was my second attempt (sat for Florida first time). Please let me know what I need to fill out for you so that you can use my statistics for others in the future. I relied heavily on your program and did not take a traditional bar course. I am quite certain that I would not have passed without your MEE/MPT materials. What was especially useful was the top 50 rules outline that you sent to us weeks before the exam. … Honestly, I thought my MBE would be a little higher because I focused heavily on MBE and practiced over 1,500 questions with Adaptibar and Emmanual Books. However, the first time I took the MBE I scored a 117 so I cannot complain. That time I took Themis and was nowhere near as intentional/methodical with my approach as this time.”
The “top 50 rules outline” he is referring to is my Top 50 MEE outline. For the J19 exam, I provided this outline to any J19 UBE Essays subscriber who is willing to confirm his or her status as an J19 examinee. Although there are 300+ released MEE essays, this outline contains the top 50 MEE essays I expect to have topics repeated in some fashion on the upcoming MEE. This outline is based on the same topic priorities as my UBE Master outline, but since I am only identifying full essays, it is not as transparent as to which topics I regard as most important or least important for the upcoming MEE. However, in my UBE Course, I strongly advise the tutees to know these 50 MEE essays better than any other MEE essays. Following details the accuracy of the priorities which the Top 50 MEE outline relies upon: https://seperac.com/analysis_ube.php
While I won’t make any guarantees, I will likely offer this outline to F20 UBE Essays subscribers. Based on past results, you can usually expect these essays to cover at least 50% of the issues in at least two MEE questions. For example, one J18 examinee who used it told me: “ … It was amazingly helpful in studying the last week of my bar prep … It really was a huge part in building my confidence and receiving almost all 4s on my MEE section.” An examinee who passed in F18 with a written of 155.2 (MBE of 158.8 and UBE of 314) told me: “in the last week I would spend 2 hour reciting the rules and checking if they were right and then reading through your top 50 essays over and over. … I spent the last week reviewing your top 50 essays 3-4 times through with first pass taking 4 days and then skimming through all 50 each morning leading up to exam for highly tested areas.” This Top 50 MEE is generally on point with each exam. For example, a foreign examinee subscriber who passed in J17 with an MBE of 162.7 and UBE of 327 told me the following: “For the MEE, on hindsight, doing and re-doing your top 50 essays document alone would also have sufficed as they were extremely spot-on.”
