Read through the outlines, then do as many practice questions as you can get your hands on. Make sure you read the explanations for all of the answers, even the ones that you got right.  I didn’t think the MPRE was that hard (no where near as tough as the bar), but you do need to so some work to get ready.

Read through the rules and you’ll be fine.  Honestly I wish I had studied less.  If you aren’t sure about an answer and just go with what seems like the right answer, and it will usually be right.

Oh also I did use the Barbri outline and did the multiple choice questions.  That’s really all I did to study and I got a 124 and only needed like a 75,

I hardly studied at all.  Just read the rule book twice.  I was glad I hadn’t hit the books as hard as my classmates!  Good luck!

It should be noted that I do not condone my studying plan for the bar exam and/or most law school finals.  That kind of attitude will get you a second taking of the bar (See Exhibit A “inspiredcreationsbyhaley” who missed passing on the first shot by ONE QUESTION), so relax for the MPRE.  Hit the books hard for the rest!

@MrsCoachBtoBee: Your plan sounds good. For the MPRE I used Barbi (watched lectures and did practice ques, no outline reading) and it was more than enough. Good luck with the MPRE.

Also, future Bar prep tip – the amount of studying you are expected to do in a day just to keep pace is horrendous and impossible. I wish I had started studying a week or two before the official start date, that way I could have relaxed a little more during the actual bar prep time (instead of constantly worrying about being behind).

Barbri plus an afternoon of studying was enough for me.  Like another PP I didn’t want to pass too high (and therefore have spent too much time studying).  Can’t remember what I actually got, but it was over 100.  I did intend to spend a second afternoon on it, but a friend had a car accident (she was generally fine but had to wear a neck brace for the test – talk about pain in the neck! – not to mention she went in cold to it, no studying at all as a result, and passed – but she’s super smart) and needed my help.

And word to the wise – I though it was one of the worst constructed tests I’ve ever taken.  From spelling errors to very poorly drafted questions (phrasing, grammar issues, bad answers, etc.)…  I hated it and still hate it.  Not just me, my classmates felt the same (and people did well, no one hated it because they failed).  By comparision, at least the multi-state questions were written better.
