The only sure way to prepare for an exam is to do EVERY practice exam from your professor you can find. Unlike the bar exam, there is no uniform format or style that is sure to work, because you're at the mercy of professors with their own preferences. One of my professors, for example, said he would NEVER give anything above a B+ to someone who turned in an IRAC exam. OK, so you don't do IRAC with him. Another professor said he prefers IRAC, but without conclusions (IRA, I guess). So that's what you do for him.
Beyond that, it's all about knowing and understanding hell out of the material.
