I am taking Civil Pro and Property both right now.  Civil Pro is lots of rules to remember and apply.  Property is lots of archaeic terms.  Once you get past the Rule of Perpetuities, property doesn't seem do bad.  I am really not having a problem with either, it is Evidence that is kicking my butt.

Got any for Evidence?

As you walk into the room - "Whether you think you can or think you can't, you are right." - Henry Ford

Before you look at the first question - "The task ahead of us is not any greater than the power that is behind us"

When you walk out feeling like you really blew it - "Sometimes the dragon wins"

I have to agree with TAS's advice.  I am a 2L at a 4 year program (night school).  I also work and have kids.  I haven't written a brief yet this year.  I read the cases, highlight in the book.  During class, I take notes of the important points the professor emphasizes on the case.  I have one professor who just the other night said don't let the facts of the case confuse you, look at the evolution of the law in the case.  I think the only exam I have ever cited on is Constitutional Criminal Law and that was because the Professor made a point of saying that citing cases was not required but would bolster out grade.

I agree with Swifty - Evidence is tough.  But Civil Procedure is not a walk in the park either.

I spent lots of time tabbing mine and never used the tabs!  The book is laid out in such a way that the tabs really aren't needed.  But that's just MHO.

I agree with jeffjoe on the distance.  I can't beleive the professors won't let you record!  Are they afraid you will "catch them" saying something they shouldn't?  I have one who doesn't really like it, but he laughs about it and says it makes him behave.

I am very close to a nervous melt down.  All the little things that used to just roll off are now MAJOR ISSUES.  EVERYTHING IS AN ISSUE.

That sounds like the panasonic version of my sony.  but I go through 2 AAA in about 3 weeks.  It's maybe 5 inches by 2.  There is a guy in my class who sits in the front row and uses a very old full size cassete recorder.  One of those that weighs more than my laptop.  I guess you use what you can, but I feel for the guy.
