Practice Exams

One of the best ways to study and prepare for the bar is by taking practice exams. Each essay from the Florida Bar exam for the past 10 years is included in the Florida Bar Study Guide, along with sample answers.

Format and Subjects

The Florida portion of the bar exam consists of three hours spent answering essay questions and three hours of 100 multiple-choice questions. Florida Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure and the Florida Rules of Judicial Administration 2.330, 2.420, 2.505, and 2.515 comprise one segment. The remaining five segments, each of which will embrace no more than three subjects, are selected from the following subjects, including their equitable aspects (see links for subject outlines):

The questions are designed to test your knowledge of both general law and Florida law. When Florida law varies from general law, the question should be answered in accordance with Florida law.
