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.

Maybe, but Davidson has this way of looking at you when you ask a "stupid" question!  I will never forget the look he gave me when I had the nerve to ask him to define "black letter law" in my Intro class.  I swear the earth stood still for a good 30 minutes while he just stared at me like I was some slime bucket that had dared to speak to him!  By the way has Davidson started dissing cats yet?

I don't know.  It depends on if you have enough time to devote to it.  I didn't pay $145 for the copy I listened to.

I have found it useful.  A good portion of your exams are discussion.  I beleive only Davidson gives 100% multi-state.  I have listened to the tapes a couple of times.  I am sure that I would have gained more from the program if I had actually went through the steps as laid out.  Leews lays out a nice "mechanical" approach to beating the panic that often sets in at exam time.

He reminds me of Matlock.  The answer is always "Maybe yes, Maybe No", except on exams of course.  Loves to talk about chickens and "Love Lawyers".

Not exclusivley, but that is the main aim of it - the say they will raise your grade by a letter point -  they mostly teach essay exam skills.

I wish it were still taught by Davidson!

Be careful what you wish for!  He was really hard on the memo.  Plus you don't get to take McBroom's Agency class in the spring!

Personnally I think you are correct that there is nothing to worry about.  However I am really surprised that she has you put your name on your work.  Do you receive letter grade or simply pass/fail for the class?  This is the first year they have had the class in its current incarnation.  Last year it was a 1 credit class taught by Davidson.

Guys, I am not going to get into this argument.  However I want to remind everyone that the grading at school is annonymous by student ID.  So even if you did make a professor hate you (which I think they are all above that), they would not be able to grade you from those feelings.  While some of them do add "points" based on class participation, ect, the majority of your grade is annonymous.
