Topic 9: How to Answer an MPRE Question
On the MPRE, you will be faced with 60 multiple-choice questions in two hours. Understanding how to approach multiple-choice questions is critical to passing the MPRE. Having a good strategy to answer those questions will help improve your score tremendously.

Often times, the multiple-choice answers play off this intuition and you may see an intentionally wrong answer that follows this “gut instinct.” If you are trying to increase your MPRE score, our approach will help you avoid being tricked and get even more questions correct!
