Studying and Exam Taking / Am I studying enough?
« on: August 29, 2004, 01:32:19 AM »
So,
All I do is write down the outline headings for my reading, skim the books and jot a note or two, and then copy the casebriefs from Legalines into my notes so I'll be ok for class.  That's like an hour tops for each class.  Essentially, I'm studying 1 to 2 hours a night depending on what's on the following day schedule.  I feel pretty comfortable being able to apply the blackletter so far in the scenerios that are brought up in class.  We've had one quiz and I'm in the top 5% of my class by the score.  I realize that counts for nothing in the big picture, but it's the only reference point I have so far 2 weeks in.  I also think that the additional time I have is another reason why I'm doing better than my peers in our legal writing class.

Question:  Is utilizing Legalines for the cases + class notes enough in terms of covering the necessary blackletter that you might need on hand as a reference for a final exam?  i just don't want to spend the semester aceing these quizes (25% of our grade 2 of the 3 classes) and then all of a sudden finding myself short of information on a closed book, outline only final.
