If you have taken Professional Responsibility any time in recent history you should be fine. I didn’t study a whole lot – just did a couple of practice tests – and I passed just fine. Good luck!

My sis, who is a lawyer, said the same thing as August15bride.  If you’re reasonably comfortable with what you covered in PR, you’ll do fine.

I had a totally different experience.  My PR professor kept telling us how easy it was and that we should worry so much because we were in the class.  3 of my friends and I studied together and all failed miserably.  the material was not hard but the way the questions presented it was something we were clearly unprepared for.  The second time around I took it more seriously, got the prep book and did a bunch of practice tests and of course passed.  It’s my most embarassing law school story that I couldn’t pass the allegedly easiest exam.  luckyly I passed the bar on the first try.

Studying for the bar currently. I already took the MPRE and it was no biggie to pass. Sad thing is I have to take yet another professional responsibility exam with the bar since WA has their own section on the material. Yick.

i took it a few years ago right after taking the ethics class in school.  all i did to prep was the barbri course and maybe an hour or two of studying.  luckily i rocked it and so will you!  but don’t get over confident.  i know a few attorneys who have passed bar exams and still have yet to pass the MPRE, thus cannot practice.  good luck!

I think if you took the review class and have done a couple of practice exams, you should be fine.  However, I also agree with Meowkers in that the material isn’t difficult, but the way the questions are phrased can be so confusing!  I remember that I (and several of my classmates) was convinced I failed walking out of the test (thankfully didn’t turn out that way!).  Good luck!!

I thought the BarBri lecture was helpful, though boring (a taste of things to come before studying for the bar). They also give you a sense of what you need to do to pass. I studied for about two weeks, which was overkill.

When I took it (albeit 20 years ago), everyone said how easy it was.  What they didn’t reveal was that they didn’t all pass.  I found that the most important thing was to read through all the rules and examples.  Do a couple of practice tests.  You’ll be fine.  I squeaked by . . . if I’d missed one more question, I would have had to take it again.  That being said, I knew that if I had to take it a 2nd time, it would have been easy.

When in doubt, pick the answer that says "Do it, but disclose first. Then get informed, written consent."

I studied for like 2 hours from the BarBri book and did not look back.  I didn’t feel prepared or under prepared.  It just felt like a bogus test and I gave the best answers I could.  This is probably not helpful, but I say it to mean I don’t think that you should stress out.

i’m taking the MPRE tomorrow also… I’ve run out of practice exams… so now I’m weddingbee in the library. I guess that means I’m done studying?
