The Smart Guide to the MPT

A Guide to Mastering the Multistate Performance Test (MPT)

Maximize your MPT score
by preparing the right way.
The MPT, in most jurisdictions, is worth 20% of your total score… a mere 10% less than the formidable essay section.  Yet, most examinees ignore or spend very little time on the MPT since no law needs to be memorized.

To say this is an error of judgment is an understatement… because even though you don’t have to memorize any legal rules, you NEED to learn how to tackle an MPT question effectively and draft your answer in only 90-minutes.

As with every section of the exam, there is a right way and wrong way to prepare, so having a successful, pre-determined strategy is essential.  In this guide, we give you that strategy (step-by-step) so you can crush this section and maximize your MPT score!

Everything in this guide is based upon our work with thousands of examinees and analysis of past MPT’s, so you can have confidence that our methods allow you to prepare the smartest way possible.
