Helix UBE is built on the latest learning science to promote understanding and support long-term retention. From the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) to the Multistate Essay Exam (MEE) and through the Multistate Performance Test (MPT), Helix incorporates proven learning techniques such as spaced repetition and interleaving to reinforce recall, while its integrated content approach keeps you alert and involved. Simply put, Helix is designed to keep you focused, actively engaged, and moving forward.
You’ll see and hear key concepts taught in a variety of formats and voices. For example, you might read through a checklist of rule components, then watch a 5-minute video with visual illustrations and examples to help you better understand or recall the rule, and then move into the next part of the rule with a quick written explanation pulling out core bar inquiries. Multiple-choice question and essay assignments, along with intentional review and assessment, provide the necessary practice and further reinforcement of the subject matter. This high-impact teaching strategy is consistent with learning science and how our brains work — so you stay involved, focused, and moving forward. And that makes Helix like no other bar preparation course available.
With benchmark coursework like practice exams, a simulated exam, and graded essays and performance tests to help you engage in the tasks you’ll need to perform on exam day — and a strategically crafted study plan to take you through all the content in the course — Helix provides what you need, when and how you need it. And Helix eliminates the guesswork by providing your choice of four study plans to follow from as early as 20 weeks before the exam.

Helix is exactly what I wanted and needed in a bar prep course: an efficient course with an accessible price point that had all the features and content I needed. Everything about it was straightforward and intuitive, from the short lecture videos to the online interface. Substantially cheaper and it still gave me what I needed to succeed on the bar exam."

POWERED BY EXPERTS AND INSIDERS
Created by the past Program Director and lead editor of the MBE program at the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) ― together with an unparalleled network of law professors, bar success professionals, and instructional designers — Helix is built on the knowledge of those who know all about the bar exam. And who know how to help you pass it.
POWERED BY EXPERTS
We include both NCBE-licensed questions and additional NCBE-like questions crafted by our panels of law professors. Created under the same conditions and in the same design established by the NCBE, you can be confident that the questions you’ll see in Helix will prepare you for what you’ll experience on test day.
TAILORED TO WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.
The bar exam is outcome-based. So, it doesn’t matter how many hours you study for the bar exam if that study focuses on the wrong things. Helix gives you Core Concepts for each subject, so you know which concepts are highly tested. And Helix helps you identify your knowledge gaps while providing resources to bridge them — setting you up for success.
YOUR SCHEDULE, YOUR BAR PREP!
With flexible access beginning as early as 20 weeks before the exam, Helix is designed to fit your schedule and learning style. Our 10, 12, 16 and 20-week study plan options help guide your bar prep journey no matter when you begin, and Helix adjusts automatically from the moment you access the program. And our Helix Directors ― all licensed attorneys ― are available to help you with questions and support along the way.
OVER 300 TARGETED SUBSTANTIVE AND INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS.
Most around 5 to 7-minutes in length to get right to the point, Helix offers substantive law explanations delivered by expert faculty and broken down by key concept, illustrated videos that provide visual explanations and examples of various hypotheticals, skill-based videos that provide guidance for each component of the exam, and more. (Like tips and strategies videos!)
RETAIN AND RECALL IN A FLASH
Helix UBE includes 1500+ mobile-friendly flashcards created from both NCBE-licensed questions and additional NCBE-like questions crafted by our panels of law professors.
