Topic 9: How to Answer an MPRE Question

how to answer an mpre questionTopic 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!

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 most highly tested. As you can see from our MPRE topic frequency chart below, not all topics are treated equally on the MPRE! Some (e.g., conflicts of interest, where you can expect to see 6–9 scored questions) are tested significantly more than others (e.g., lawyers’ duties to the public and the legal system, where you will only see 1–2 questions!).

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

Thus, it is impossible to say exactly how many questions you need to answer correctly in order to pass the MPRE. However, we do have information at our disposal which reveals a lot about how the MPRE is graded.
