What is Critical Pass?
Critical Pass flashcards help you break down everything you need to know for the MBE, so you can learn and memorize efficiently and effectively. One side of the flashcard has a given legal issue and the back of the card has an outline of the law as well as space for the student to include notes or mnemonics. Check out a sample here. At roughly 5×7 inches, Critical Pass cards are large enough to provide writing space, but small enough to take with you on the go.
The cards are also color coded for individual subjects. Each subject has an index that groups cards by overarching legal issues. The cards also cross-reference topics (because so many MBE concepts are interconnected), which will assure you are not just studying one rule. This is important because it’s something that is often overlooked or forgotten when using flashcards.
What’s the Difference Between Critical Pass and Other Bar Exam Flashcards?
The biggest difference between Critical Pass and other flashcards is the ability to customize the study aid, which allows you to learn in a way that suits your learning style. This is crucial, as the process of memorization is most effective when you synthesize the information in your own words.
Critical Pass content is also more substantive than other bar exam flashcards because the cards contain more than just a definition. Critical Pass flashcards explain the finer distinctions and provide extra notes and warnings for frequently-tested bar exam questions.
What Subjects Does Critical Pass Cover and How Many Cards are Included?
Critical Pass covers every subject on the MBE (which will soon include Civil Procedure). Here are the subjects and number of cards per topic:
- Torts: 44
- Criminal Law and Procedure: 72
- Evidence: 46
- Property: 62
- Contracts: 41
- Constitutional Law: 53
- Civil Procedure: 62
What is the Critical Pass Mobile App?
Critical Pass offers its unique flashcard method in the form of an app for the iPhone and iPad. The demo version (which you can download for free) gives you full access to 10 cards in each subject area, and the ability to add notes and highlight information. The app is great for studying on the go and if you prefer not to carry the cards with you at all times. The full version is available for purchase within the app.
How Much Does Critical Pass Cost?
One set of 380 Critical Pass cards is $149.99. This includes one year of mobile app access for Apple and Android Devices. See here for more information.
