I have to take the MPRE in a few months and nobody seems to provide much information about how to prepare for it. I am taking professional responsibility, but apparently there is some rule that the ABA does not allow the professor to teach you how to pass the MPRE. So for anyone who has taken it what steps did you take and what was helpful. Also how difficult was it? Is it like a typical law school final or less intense more intense. Basically I have gotten very little information from the bar website or my school and I don't even know the exact questions to ask. Any assistance woudl be appreciated.
the MPRE is stupidly easy
The ethics portion of the bar exam is far more difficult than the MPRE, so if you are prepared for the bar exam then all you need is familiarity with the MPRE format.

But are there states that don't test professional responsibility? I know it isn't on the multistate, but it is such an obvious thing to work into essay questions. Seemed like half the Cali essay questions had an ethics component.BARBRI sure had an extensive lecture on the subject, at least.(And, as to WI - Wisconsin does not require the MPRE at all. But they do make a point of extra ethics coverage in the essays for the bar.)
