Process of elimination will help tremendously. For example, in my Evidence course we have 10 options per question (A-J). F-J are options like, "A, B, and C" or "A and D." This makes it challenging because there are answers that are more correct than others. But, identifying just one wrong answer eliminates the possibility of others. So, if you focus on the law, the application, and knowing the MPC/CL (or whatever else you need) cold, this should be easy when you identify an incorrect answer (or, in my case, an answer that isn't as correct as others..). Also, since MC are generally "easier" than fact pattern questions, pay attention and closely read the fact patterns. There may be some hidden traps and language in there.

Also, the Charles Whitebread book, "7 tips to exam taking success," has a great section on MC test taking.

Good luck!
