Best MPRE Study Aids??

Postby blong4133 » Thu May 03, 2012 8:29 pm

Signing up for the August 10 MPRE and was just curious what some of you who have taken it and passed used.

I've heard that the Gilberts outline is good. But other than that I don't know what else is a good study aid. I've got a Kaplan MPRE outline book as well, but haven't really looked through it (I got it for free).

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Read the barbri outline and take a couple of practice tests.

Kaplan offers a free online course (video lectures, two practice exams, two diagnostic exams/quizzes, and lots of practice questions).

Maybe a stethoscope, because a heartbeat is about all you need to pass...

But seriously, print out the model rules & read them three times. That's it.

I've heard that it's relatively simple...but that doesn't help my anxiety at all. haha.

But thank you for the suggestions so far!

They have a interactive outline and video that is really helpful. It's 3 hours long, and sums everything up.

I didn't do a single practice test.
I listened to the free barbri lecture as it went through the free book. The next weekend I did the free kaplan version. The next weekend I took the MPRE.


I walked out thinking uhm did I do ok?

And blew it out of the water.

Don't over-think this. The passing score is set uber low, and the material is too easy to fail.
