I had an all multiple choice test and was slightly above median in that class, and when I went over the questions I missed it just felt like I should have read the cases a bit more closely. The professor just said I should have known what I was doing, just a little bit better but didn't offer any constructive advice.
How do you guys suggest I study for a class with an all MC final?
2L here. i've had a number of exams with at least a significant MC component (including one that was entirely MC) and done pretty well on them. i think the key, regardless of whether it's open or closed-book, know the BLL cold. if it's open-book, you don't want to waste time flipping through your books/outline for the answer to a question. also, take your time. most of these are not very time-pressured, so read the questions carefully. usually the questions i missed were a result of my having misread a question.
as for preparation, if you can, find as many supplements as you can that contain MC questions and even try creating some MC questions yourself. i did this for the one class that was entirely MC and found it incredibly helpful because the process of creating questions and answer choices better helped me understand the law and its nuances.
