Iowa administers the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) that consists of three parts: the Multistate Performance Test (MPT), the Multistate Essay Exam (MEE), and the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE). The exam is scheduled biannually on the last Tuesday and Wednesday of February and July. The MPT and MEE occur on Tuesday; the MBE occurs on Wednesday.
The MPT consists of two 90-minute items that are designed to assess the examinee’s ability to use fundamental lawyering skills in a realistic situation. Each examinee receives a “File” of source documents and a “Library” of cases, statutes, and rules. The MPT is a “closed universe” component in that it provides all necessary materials to answer the question and does not require the applicant to use any state-specific law.
The MEE consists of six 30-minute essays testing the following subjects: all MBE subjects (Constitutional Law, Contracts and Sales, Criminal Law and Procedure, Evidence, Real Property, and Torts), plus Agency and partnership, Corporations and LLCs, Conflict of laws, Constitutional law (Federal), Contracts (including Uniform Commercial Code (Sales) (Art. 2)), Criminal law and procedure, Evidence (based on the Federal Rules of Evidence), Family law, Federal civil procedure, Real property, Torts, Trusts and Estates, Uniform Commercial Code (Negotiable instruments - Commercial Paper [Art. 3], Secured transactions [Art. 9])
The MBE consists of 200 multiple-choice questions that test the following areas: Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts & Sales, Criminal Law & Procedure, Evidence, Real Property, and Torts. Of the 200 questions, 175 are scored questions and 25 are unscored pre-test questions. The pre-test questions are indistinguishable from the scored questions so applicants are advised to answer all questions.

My constant dialogue with the Themis staff helped me avoid feeling overwhelmed and optimized my study time. Without the personalized support, quick response time and such a flexible/adaptable program, I would've been in heaps of trouble. I still cannot fathom why anyone would pay double or triple for an inferior product. Thanks Themis!
