Yeah, at the very least I was surprised by a lack of water. I've only had one other test where I couldn't have any form of water (even in a clear bottle with no label) but it was longer than the MPRE and you couldn't leave early, I left with a headache because I'm one of those people who drinks a lot of water. So on the flip side I guess the MPRE isn't the most stringent test I've ever taken, if based purely on time factors.

Yeah I was just complaining about how I was on page LVIII of a "mini" review. I also become unreasonably irritated that the pages were in roman numerals.

Don't worry, you got this! Be sure to give yourself a break this evening.

That sucked. Barbri practice questions were too simplistic.

Welp.

I guess I'll study the rules in more detail for the March exam.

I realize it's difficult, but I'd try not fret too much. Based on personal conversations and looking over past threads on TLS it seems like assuming you did terrible is the norm, and then you didn't.

I feel pretty neutral overall, there was a question that just HAD to be experimental because I don't remember ever covering anything even remotely related to it. But then again my judgment on such things is terrible. I also felt neutral on my PTs but scored above what I needed on them, so let's hope that translates!

Anyways, and more importantly, waffle time - at least once I get off the train.

Done. I sincerely hope we all passed and never have to take this exam again!

I walked out of the test with a really odd craving for waffles. Thanks, TLS.

Welp when I take this in March I will read the actual rules. I relied way too much on Barbri's questions. The questions today were much more difficult

I couldn't even finish all the questions. I had only 20 questions in first hour. Then I ramped up my speed but still could complete 55. rest 5 just marked random answers. i am sure i will fail this exam. why they don't allow watches? the proctor mentioned the time at 1 hour and then directly at 15 mins. :cry:

Oh no! :( I mean, you can still miss a bunch and pass. Only completing 55 out of 60 isn't the end of the world. I really wish they'd let you have watches too though. My room at least had a clock up.

I am still thinking about it. People who say they didn't study, felt they failed but passed with 100 etc., are they so good?

By the way, all of you who did practice exams, how many correct answers you used to get? I studied for 2 days, did three practice exams with Kaplan 55, 55 and 70%

Hope everyone did well.

I was really bad with time. I ended up not answering two and really guessing (not looking at the fact pattern) on like 10. I felt like I guessed (narrowed down as much as I could) on more then half the questions.

The answer choices were much harder to narrow down. And it felt like there were much more questions where it really was looking for the best answer choice because some of the more obvious issues were not listed as possible answer choices or were written in a weird way.

I definitely wish I had focused more on the rules and less on the outline.

I did the 4 barbri exams.

51/60 - 43/60 - 48/60 - 45/60.

I completed most of the Barbri course over a two week period (minus the full-length practice exams), but when I did a bunch more Themis practice questions yesterday I was only averaging 60% across the sets. We'll see how I end up doing. Your practice exam scores aren't bad at all, I'm sure you'll end up being okay!

I did all the barbri review material and read the outline. 52/60 on the one practice exam I did. Left feeling pretty concerned.

I did 2 of the Kaplan practice exams.. 39/60 and 38/60. Also, I did over 360 practice questions from themis and barbri, scoring from 53% - 81%. I couldnt study the last 3 days and feel unsure because of that. I guess well see in 5 weeks...
