    Good evening all!

    I have a question regarding remedial education for the Illinois MPJE. I have to do remedial education after three exam failure in my state of Illinois; 1 NAPLEX, 2 MPJE. Now I was able to pass the NAPLEX on my second attempt, but law has been a tricky one for me. I've gotten 73/74 on the attempts and after getting my results back in the end of November I have been waiting for the information packet IDFPR said they would send me since when I called (horrible office to deal with, the individual I spoke to knew absolutely nothing about the packet itself or anything else other than for me to expect it after the holidays). After having waited for the holidays to end I finally got fed up waiting on the state and gave them a call to which they told me that I need to get remedial education with a pharmacist in Illinois on the subject by working with this pharmacist to create an outline of how I'll study and approach the subjects I struggled in.

    Here's where I need some help:
    Illinois MPJE results tell you nothing and are not helpful at all indicating where you struggled and where you can improve upon in the future. I have no idea where to start on an outline with a pharmacist (of whom I need to find one to work with) on the entirety of Illinois Law. Does anyone have any previous experience with remedial education in Illinois and remedial work for the MPJE overall?

    Thank you in advanced!

    Yeah I and another person have been doing that and no response. I'm debating just calling his law office but I feel that it might be overkill. Too aggressive or right action to take?

    did you ask him about remedial education or something else? I responded to him a day after he emailed me to let him know I was interested (at the beginning of January) and I haven't heard from him since

    The key is to at a glance understand a right or a very wrong answer. The only way to achieve this is by practicing his practice tests which include topics from fires in a pharmacy, drunk pharmacists, docs from 200 miles away calling in scripts, mid level practitioners and controlled substance prescriptions, and tons of general pharmacy practice and controlled substance questions.

    I studied for IL MPJE only focusing on his recent packet and practice questions. Like most people (I would say), passed by 1-3 points above the 75 threshold. The actual MPJE is very much like his test. Questions are all case based for the most part.

    Also, I found knowing a lot about remote pharmacies is helpful too.

    My bad on that - I was referring to Ed Rickert's practice test he includes in his review packet.
