Hi everyone,

I'm taking the MPRE on Saturday.  How many hours do you think I need to study?  The state where I'm taking the bar requires an 85.   Thanks

I had the barbri book and the "Supreme Bar Review MPRE Review" book.   I read through the outlines once and then did all of the practice tests.  I think it probably took me between 10 and 20 hours total.  I wasn't happy with my scores on the practice tests, and I felt like crap after I took the test.  I got a 107.

(To give you a gauge of my abilities, I got between a 158 and 162 on the LSAT)

Studied 2 days prior to the test, took no practice tests, and got a 118.  It's a joke.

Just have a general familiarity with the test and types of questions.  I assume you have taken Professional Responsibility?  If so, just review your outline and maybe a commercial MPRE outline.

I studied a free barbri/kaplan (don't remember which one it was) handout for half a day, got a 140 I think it was. Like everyone said, the test is a joke and as best I can tell serves no purpose but to extract a few bucks from you and waste our time - it certainly isn't rigorous enough to verify that you know anything.
