Around how many multiple choice questions should we be doing a day?

I don't know - but I've been tackling each subject each day for the past few days and I have been doing 100 m/c questions for each topic...

Barbri says that you should be doing at least 50 a day, but as with everything in bar prep, the more the better

I don't agree with that advice. Really mastering 20-30 questions by reading why you got it right or wrong and going over all the answer choices is far more effective than doing 100 Q's at a cursory level. There is no way you can do 100 a day and actually STUDY those questions. Quality over Quantity is the name of the game at this stage.

Ya, I passed first time last july, and I was doing no more than 35 per day, even towards the last two-three weeks. It's much more important that you understand the law and know why youre missing questions than just blithely taking hoards of questions. Around this time, you should have a feel for the tricks they throw at you, and now should be able to really think through the questions and be able to identify the wrong answers

I would say 50-75. A minimum of 50. Although you may study and study and memorize law, there are exceptions/rules/tricks/scenarios that you can only master through practice. Yes, reading the answer and understanding is crucial, but it is more important at this time to keep practicing. It will help you learn all of the different scenarios that you can not learn by just reading the Subject Outlines.

I agree with what you say about reading subject outlines, I gave up on that weeks ago. I think it's crucial to go over the detailed answers for each question. I'm reviewing all the questions that I got wrong over the last 30 days and making sure I understand why and also identifying the pattern of the question. So at this stage I'm not going over new questions... maybe that's not the correct strategy, but it seems to be making things stick better.

Anyone think the NCBE questions are useful?? Pretty expensive. I'm thinking I might download just 1 of the 3 parts. I finished all the BarBri questions so don't know what to do now.... tick tock tick tock.

Kaplan recommends 33 a day, which makes sense since each topic typically gets 33 questions each on the actual test. It is also a good interval, because 33 should take you a little less than an hour, so you can block off your time easier that way. I would usually do 33, and if I was unsatisfied with my performance, I would do another set of 33. The quantity is not important, it is more a matter of measuring your performance across the different subjects, and then being able to go from all questions in one subject to doing a mixed set of all the subjects. I did it gradually, first by doing 2 and 3 subjects at a time.
