The Multistate Performance Test (MPT) is the most overlooked portion of the exam. Many students put it off until the last minute, and then they are not sure how to tackle this extremely important part of the exam.

The Multistate Performance Test (MPT) is worth 20% of your score in a UBE jurisdiction. This is the equivalent of 70 multiple-choice questions! Since many students do not prepare adequately for the MPT, you will put yourself at a huge advantage by preparing, and by taking advantage of this MPT seminar.

JD Advising’s Multistate Performance Test (MPT) Seminar will provide you with the guidance that you need so that you can excel on the MPT portion of the bar exam.

What does the MPT seminar cover?

You will receive the assignments ahead of time so that you can review them before the seminar.

I found the seminar to be extremely helpful! The type of MPT was predicted accurately so I was able to really focus on the suggested subject areas prior to the exam. It was a great supplement to the commercial bar prep class I took, which I found to be overly generalized. I also really appreciated the formatting templates as well! I would definitely recommend the course to anyone studying for the UBE.
