Hi everyone I just took the Michigan mpje most likely it's like all other mpjes, it was Ridiculously hard. That mpje exam made the Naplex exam look like golden state during the nba finals. I studied about 12 days which was plenty of time for the mi law material I used the board material and had the federal law book and during the exam on 60% of the questions I was like why werent these topics listed on your statues that you told me to go off of when studying for the law exam. And seriously 65% of my exams was select that apply and 10% k type the rest multiple choice. Like select all that apply are stupid give 10-20% but over half the exam is going to be select all that apply. I'm depressed and I know I failed I was just guessing most of the time like seriously...share your experience help :(

I had a very similar experience with the MPJE. I went through my state laws from beginning to end, reviewed the federal book, went through individual acts, took practice quizzes, etc. And when it came time for the exam I would have sworn I answered maybe two questions right. I honestly have no idea where I was supposed to get the information that I needed to be able to answer those questions. I could have studied for years and still not known the answers. I could have had the state and federal laws printed out and sitting in front of me and still not known the answers. I also had tons of "check all that apply" questions, and then when I did get a multiple choice question, many of the provided answers didn't even make sense. I thought I was losing my ability to read and comprehend English. I was 99.9999% sure I failed.

But I passed. Not even close to failing. Most people pass. Try not to worry. And just know that if you do fail (statistically unlikely), it doesn't mean you're stupid. It's a ridiculous exam.

My tip for you is there's really no solid say to prepare for such an exam. Be prepared to be depressed but I guess everyone feels that way after the mpje.

When you were "going through" the state laws, were you just reading them casually or were you committing every single word of what they had on the website to memory? I'm very confused how we are expected to memorize every detail and every word of every single state law ever passed just by reading through the law statutes only once (?!) but it seems like people who passed the MPJE have done it, could you please tell me how you did it?
