MPRE Study Guide: What Do I Need to Know to Pass?
The obvious answer to this question is “the rules.” While that may be annoying to read, we encounter SO many students who never read the rules, in any way shape or form, prior to taking the MPRE. Thus, it is worth reminding you that the rules are the most important thing to know!
So, in short, for an MPRE study guide, you need to know the rules to pass. However, not all the rules are created equal. We firmly believe that if you are trying to maximize your time studying prior to the MPRE you should study smarter, not harder. To do this you should get an idea how they test these rules. Next, you should make sure that you review the rules and practice application. If you do these things, you are much more likely to pass the MPRE.
I Can’t Pass the MPRE!
Can’t pass the MPRE? Have you taken the MPRE once, twice, three times, four times, or more? You are not alone! We have had students come to us for private tutoring for the MPRE on their seventh time taking it. We also have students who take the MPRE multiple times yet pass the bar exam on their first try.
There is something about the MPRE that makes it very difficult for very smart, successful students to pass!
So, if you can’t seem to pass the MPRE, you may need to change your approach completely! Sometimes changing how you are thinking about and preparing for the MPRE can make a big difference in score.
