Duders there are no good or bad MPRE scores

There is only pass and fail


Wrong. 86 is the perfect MPRE score. Passing in every jurisdiction and zero wasted effort.

Dude don't waste your weekend


Nah I won't waste all of my weekend on it. I have other stuff going on too. Probably like 4 hrs each on Saturday and Sunday, then maybe like another five throughout the week next week. Hopefully ~13 hrs does the trick.

Did the Kaplan video and a practice test. Scoring around a 71% (what is that, a 103 or something?). I'll do a bit more studying Thursday and Friday.

What all do we need to bring with us to the exam? A headshot of ourselves? Can we just print that out?

Yes. I believe you need to cover head and shoulders. I printed it out in color on regular copy paper and it sufficed. Drivers license/other ID and also your admissions ticket. They do fingerprints at the test center.

I also would like to discourage people from taking this exam too lightly. I think it is better to overstudy than understudy (if you have the time). The first time I took this exam, I really let TLS get to me and I ended up failing (although by 1-2 questions). It is really a pain to study again and take this exam at this point of the school year.

When I took the test last August, all I had to show was my ticket, headshot and driver's license. There were no fingerprints involved. Did the NCBEX folks institute some new practice that quickly? If so, I'm glad I don't have to take the exam again. Good luck to those of you who are taking or retaking the exam.

Nevermind. I think I got this mixed up with something else. Sorry about that.

I started to look at the video today, hence why my posting today has quadrupled. It's been 4 hours of trying, and I have watched 1 hour and 25 minutes of the video. Ugh.

Another TLS thread says 34/35 should be pretty safe for an 85.

Is that 34/35 out of the 60? Or out of 50?

I keep getting around somewhere between 40 and 50 out of 60 (43, 45, 48 and 50 on the 4 barbri practices).
