Are the flashcards up to date?
Yes! To ensure the cards reflect the most recent law, as well as updates to the MBE, we revise Critical Pass flashcards at least twice per year, including before each bar exam season begins. The cards are now currently updated for February 2018.
What is the difference between Law School Flashcards and the MBE Flashcards?
Generally speaking, our Law School Flashcards provide a bit more detail and context and are designed to be more elemental and definitional. In other words, they are designed to help a 1L or 2L student learning substantive legal material for the first time.
On the other hand, our MBE cards are designed as a refresher and supplement to a comprehensive bar review course. The cards are designed to help you understand and memorize key bar exam concepts the way they’re presented on the bar exam, particularly the MBE.
The two products reflect the difference with which you need to understand and apply information for law school final exams versus the bar exam.
Has Property been updated for the February 2017 exam?
Yes. As you may know, the MBE will expand to cover a few additional topics in Property beginning in 2017. Critical Pass has been updated to reflect these changes.

How is Critical Pass different from any other flashcard?
Critical Pass allows you to customize the flashcards so you learn the material your way. Each card has designated space for users to write their own notes, mnemonics or examples. This is crucial, as the process of memorization is most effective when you synthesize the information in your own words. At roughly 5x7 inches, Critical Pass cards are large enough to provide writing space, but small enough to take with you wherever you go.
Does Critical Pass include Civil Procedure?
Yes! As of October 2014, the revised and updated set includes Civil Procedure, which will be added to the MBE for the February 2015 exam. Unfortunately, Civil Procedure is not available for sale as an individual subject purchase.
Does the app come with the physical flashcards?
One year of mobile app access is included in the purchase price for customers who purchased after May 17, 2017.
