I honestly don't know how I can go from top ten percent of one class to bottom twenty percent in another, given that I studied them both equally and applied the same amount of energy towards both. I hate multiple choice on law exams.
MC makes this interesting. From my select group of friends that I discuss this information, we found that it was not uncommon to do quite well on 3 exams and poorly on another despite the fact that the material was seemingly equally understood across courses.
I did 400 practice MC questions for my Torts final (22 MC questions on the final) and 450 or so for my Property final (30 MC questions). Got an A- and A, but I haven't been able to see the exams yet and see how much of that was due to MC.
Were your MC questions straight MC or did you have to explain your answer?
The reason I ask is on one of my exams we had an MC section but were then expected to write a short essay (2-3 paragraphs) explaining our answer, and from the sound of it we could get some credit for a wrong answer if we argued for it well enough. I'd never encountered "MC" questions like that before.
Straight MC, but they were very difficult, especially the Torts ones. There were several questions with 4 correct answers, and you had to pick the most correct one. Others were just simply on the nth level and you really had to think hard.
The property were about 10 really freaking easy, 10 moderately difficult and 10 super tricky, but none were as tricky as the Torts ones.
