For those of you planning on taking the MPRE in 2017, the NCBE has increased the test fees. On-time registration is now $95 and late registration is $190. You might not be thrilled about the price increase but $95 is better than $190 so be sure to register on time to avoid paying double. Below are the 2017 test dates and registration deadlines but you don’t have to wait until the deadline to register. In fact, registration for ALL the 2017 test dates opens on December 12th. Your best bet is to plan ahead, pick a test date, earmark $95 and register as soon as you can.

Not sure how to study for the MPRE? Check back in February as the Bar Exam Wizard will have a post (or two) on MPRE study strategies. In addition, most commercial bar prep companies offer free MPRE courses with no strings attached (you don’t have to sign up for the bar prep course in order to get the MPRE course).
