In this episode we discuss:

  • How to find out exactly what's covered
  • What to expect during the MBE on test day
  • Why is the MBE so challenging?
  • What is the best way to study for the MBE?
  • Lee and Alison share their MBE experiences
  • Why practice is so important
  • The right way to practice
  • How much should you worry about timing?
