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.

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'm with lawgroupie.  Seems I never get my outlines started until crunch time a couple of weeks right before the exam!  I figure as long as I keep on top of the work every week, I am doing good!

Actually there are loans available when you go to NSL, just not through the school.  I read that there is a bank that NSL recommends that will loan you the money.  I made it through the first year, I am hoping for one of the scholarships to help me through the next three!

Current Law Students / Re: Best Study Aids?

The best study aids I have found are the tapes for sale on  I think they are all by Gilbert.  They have them for all the major courses.  I bought them for Torts and Contracts last year.  Loved them so much have now got them for Property, Civil Procedure, Remedies, and Evidence.  Haven't listened to all the new ones yet.  However I will say that the Torts helped me get an A in torts and I never would have figured out Statute of Frauds in contracts if not for the neumonics (I can't spell) on the Contracts tape.  They break the concepts down in to easy to remember concepts.  They are not normally case specific (except for MAJOR cases) nor are they state specific.  They are expensive ($40 to $60) per set, but worth it.

I was "surfing the board and this post hit me between the eyes!  I am a mother of three (16, 13, 6).  I work full time.  I chaperone the high school band, and lead a girl scout troop.  My husband is assistant scout master for the boy scout troop and den leader for the tiger cubs.  This is my second year in night school.  I attend what is termed full time - 12 hours.  I will take me 4 years to get my JD.  At the end of last year, I was in the top 10% of my class.  Everyone who knows me tells me I am crazy, but at the same time they are not surprised.  Seems I am not happy unless I have "too much" to do.  Law School terrifies me while it exhiliarates.  It can be done.  However, you have to have the full support of your family.  My older children really get a kick out of mom having more homework than they do.  My youngest simply accepts it as part of life.  I husband waits up for me at night and doesn't complain when I have to attend a study group for a large part of the weekend because we have a test.  Yes, you are crazy, but it can be done.  Someone once told me, "You can do anything you want to if you want to bad enough."
