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. Many students ask, “Should I read the call of the question first?” “Should I read the answer choices first?” In this post, we dissect the best approach for multiple-choice questions that will help you maximize your MPRE score!
On the MPRE, most people have a gut reaction immediately after reading the question as to whether the attorney behaved properly or not. 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! Continue reading Topic 9: How to Answer an MPRE Question
Topic 7: MPRE Topic Frequency Chart
The best way to study smart for the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) is to focus on the topics that are highly tested.

This is not to say that you want to ignore any MPRE topic. However, if your goal is to study in the most efficient way possible, you should pay special attention to the highly tested topics. Continue reading Topic 7: MPRE Topic Frequency Chart
