Years after taking and passing the NY bar, I’m sitting for the FL bar exam in Feb. Doing BarBri again (which, annoyingly, I have to pay for), but I also need to take MPRE again as I took it a long time ago. What prep courses are people taking these days? I know it’s a security blanket, but I want to do it to make myself feel better, so I wanted to know which courses for MPRE people are taking these days.

I don’t even think the courses are worth paying for MPRE. I read the book twice and did a bunch of practice questions.

For the MPRE Themis has a free course I did-just did the practice questions and exams no lectures and it was helpful.

I did FL last year with Themis and it worked out well, also if you ask a rep they can give a discount.

Definitely just do the free Barbri course for MPRE. I had to take it for in-house counsel registration in my state (MPRE wasn’t even required when I took the bar but I didn’t have 15 years since passing the bar, only 12). I scored high enough for any state’s requirement and basically just watched the Barbri videos and scanned the outlines over the course of 10 days after work. You’ll be good.

Thanks. This looks like the best option!

Just do Barbri’s free course. It’s more than enough. Start the course a week before you take it.

Use adaptibar religiously for MPRE. Videos by Grossman on there are really good too. Also, Grossman for Florida specific is 1000% necessary. Whatstheissue.org
