I've been using a digital Sony ICD-p17 for 2 years now.  I really like it, but it is a little greedy with the batteries.  I always place it on the desk where the podium is at the beginning of class.  I tried recording from my desk (half way back) and the reception wasn't real clear.

Thank you Edythec for your recommendation!

Glad I could help.  I fell in love with the tapes when they got me through Contracts.  I have a set for each of my classes.  I find a different perspective always seems to work!  Congratulations on your great test results!

My guess it they figure the hard paced craziness will cull out those who don't really want it.  I've got two mid-terms in December, back to back, not even a day in between them!  You do get a couple of weeks in May between the last class and finals.  But the bad news is you have two finals a week for two weeks in a row.

You study for contracts over Christmas break.  Hope you didn't think you were actually going to get a holiday! ::)

Good Idea!  I do the same thing, sort of.  We have to study a lot of actual cases.  So I print them out for several weeks ahead, and carry the folder and my highlighters at all times.

I am in my second year of night school.  I work full time and have three very active kids (scouts, band, ect)  It is all in how bad you want it and what you want.  I still manage to lead my daighter's girl scout troop and chaperone my son's marching band.  Difference now is I carry flash cards and cassete tapes with me everywhere.  When we go camping, I get to take an extra bag - my school books.  In many ways I am setting an example for my older kids because they see how hard I work and they are learning that sometimes when you want something, you have to really work and sacrifice for it.  As for my youngest son, 6 yrs, he and I catch time reading on the nights I am home and the weekends.  The key is having a family that supports you.  If my husband and kids didn't understand how important this is to me, I couldn't make it.  It is tougher than anything I have ever done, but in the end, it will be worth it.

Thanks!  I have found the E&E books to be helpful in the past.  I will add this one to my collection!

Anyone have any tried and true advice or suggested study aids for evidence?  It seems to be a morass of conflicting rules.

Yeah, I listened to it during my commute as well.  I figure it can't hurt.  And I think even the little bit that I learned from it helped me.  I just listened, didn't do the actual written exercises.
