Multiple Choice Exam questions

Postby lawschoolproblems86 » Sat Sep 24, 2011 12:41 pm

I'm kind of freaking out about multiple choice exam questions. I know what to expect from the essays and there are a number of systems/books/programs that help you with the tricks to essay questions. But as far as the multiple choice questions go, what kinds of things will be asked of us? From my understanding most people don't even brief or focus too much on the details of cases, other than the rule and holding. So I'm not sure what multiple choice questions can possibly test? Or will they also all be mini hypothetical fact sets with 4 outcomes?

I can't say this is the same for everyone, but when my professors gave us multiple choice, they were short hypos.

"Angel shot at Buffy but hit Clark by accident. Angel would likely be found:
a) Guilty because of transferred intent.
b) Not guilty because it was an accident.
c) etc.
d) etc."

Everyone is different but I practice multiple choice by covering the question with an index card and then reading the answers. Usually one or two will be a false statement of law and you can mark them out. By reading the answers first you know what facts to look for in the question. As a tip "none of the above" is rarely the correct answer. Here is the link to Q&A on Amazon
