Abstract

Law school multiple-choice questions can be as sophisticated as traditional essay questions. They can be more demanding in some ways, and more difficult for some students. They are also fairer and more reliable.

Experts agree that three types of people do poorly on multiple-choice questions: those who panic, those who operate on instinct rather than analysis, and those who are unprepared -- either on the material tested or for that type of test.

This presentation to the Caribbean Law Students Association covers strategies for preparing for and taking law school multiple-choice tests. Students who put these suggestions into practice will be prepared for the test, will have trained themselves to be guided by analysis, and therefore will not panic. They will perform at their best.

Keywords: law school, multiple-choice tests, law students
