  • Several jurisdictions (listed below) test all parts of the UBE—the MBE, MEE, and MPT—on their bar exam, but are not considered UBE jurisdictions because part of their bar exam is jurisdiction specific. If you plan on taking the bar exam in one of these jurisdictions, we recommend you get one of our UBE packages. You then will only need to get some material to help you prepare for the jurisdiction-specific part of your bar exam (since we don’t offer jurisdiction-specific material at this time).
  • If your jurisdiction isn’t on either list, odds are that you’ll still be interested in our MBE Suite. Every U.S. jurisdiction except Louisiana and Puerto Rico administers the MBE as part of its bar exam.
    • If you’re planning on practicing in Louisiana or Puerto Rico, you may still be interested in purchasing individual audio and written outlines for the subjects that you struggle with to supplement a course more catered to your jurisdiction’s exam.

Memory palaces leverage powerful spatial memory by visualizing places and things that cement key concepts. Like the Socratic method, the method of loci is as old as ancient Greece. But unlike the often poorly executed Socratic method, you’ll love our loci. World memory champs dig the method of loci and you will, too!

Yes. When you buy a Crushendo product, you receive a lifetime license to that product’s content and future updates for personal, non-commercial use. The earlier you buy, the earlier you benefit. And the benefits never expire.

  • Example. A year after crushing the bar with Crushendo, you take a case where you need a quick refresher on family law. You’ll still be able to listen to your Crushendo audio outlines and even access the most up-to-date versions.

That said there are four exceptions to the lifetime access rule:

  • Prolonged account inactivity. If you have not logged into your Crushendo.com account for more than two years, we may delete your account.  If your account is deleted due to inactivity, you can create a new account at any time and receive restored access to product(s) previously available on your account upon written request to support@crushendo.com. However, all course progress, including practice question submissions and scores, will not be restored.
  • Refunds or cancellations. If you cancel an order or have it refunded, your access to materials associated with that cancelled or refunded order will be revoked.
  • NCBE content removals. The NCBE occasionally removes certain practice questions from their offerings that the NCBE deems to be outdated or for other reasons. If the NCBE removes any practice questions from their Crushendo offerings for any reason, Crushendo will remove such questions from its materials. However, Crushendo will send you a PDF of such questions prior to their removal from your online account.
  • Abuse or breach. Though sharing online links to Crushendo’s public blog posts, public or unlisted YouTube videos, and other public resources is permitted and encouraged, if we believe you have abused Crushendo’s intellectual property rights or otherwise breached these Terms, we may immediately revoke your access, terminate your Crushendo.com account, and pursue damages. For example, if you share your username, password, downloads, or download links, you will have breached these Terms and abused Crushendo’s intellectual property rights.
