How Many MPTs Should I Do?

How Many MPTs Should I Do?: One of the easiest, yet overlooked places to get points on the bar exam is the MPT.

Should My Answers Look Just Like The MPT Sample Answers?

Should My Answers Look Just Like The MPT Sample Answers?: Students frequently ask whether their practice MPT answers must mimic the NCBE’s MPT Point Sheets.

Similarly, student answers do not have to look precisely like the MPT sample answers that you can find on the Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, and Texas websites in order to get a passing score (or even an above passing score!). While the answers do have similarities, none are written exactly the same. Remember that the answers on each state’s website are some of the best in the state during a given administration. You do not need to duplicate these answers to pass the MPT. Rather, use these answers to refine your approach.
