I took it and found it relatively easy. I went through the Rigos Review book earlier in the week and I'm sure I did better than I needed. There were probably about 10 of the 60 questions that I didn't know the answer for sure. Definitely something that you need to study a little for and its not so easy that you can just walk in and pick the obvious answers. Its pretty easy to get the right answer down to two choices, but from there you need to be able to recognize the distinction.

That's the book I used too, I thought it and the questions on the CD made me ready for the exam. I only needed an 85 but I got like a 110-115 or something. I will say I did not feel very confidant right after the test, but I guess I did fine.

I studied off an outline, and did multiple practice tests (all of which I passed by a safe amount).  However, I didn't feel confident after leaving yesterday's test.  Hopefully I passed.

I passed, too.  I also felt as if I'd done poorly when I left the exam room.  A couple of guys who had taken the bar exam the week before were in there for their second shot at the MPRE.  Man, that would suck to have to take it a third time, and soon after receiving their bar results.

I noticed several people taking it too who recently graduated as well (who presumably recently took the bar exam).  Imagine that...taking the bar exam (after studying for about two months), and then taking the MPRE shortly afterwards.  Doesn't sound pleasant to me.

Anyway, congrats to us (and to whoever else who passed it on the first time - or who just passed it this time around).  It's over and done with.

Now (or, until the Spring), on to the bar!

Passed easily with lots of room to spare. 

Took Professional Responsibility during preceding semester & went through the RIGOS MPRE Review book during the evenings the week before the exam.

Overall spent about 10 hours studying. Definitely requires some studying, but not a lot.
