Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Law School Prep Books
« on: April 29, 2006, 08:54:50 PM »
I start in the fall and have read the E&E's books on Torts and Civ Pro.  Who knows how much of a difference they will make in the fall, but I found the books quite easy to follow and I feel that I learned quite a bit.  At least I'll know some of the basic black letter law and vocabulary as it is introduced in classes.  I don't expect it to guarantee As, but right now I feel a bit more at ease knowing at least a little bit before school starts.

I just got leews and hope it makes a difference next year as well.  I've heard a lot of great comments about it on this message board.  However, I have heard some negative comments on the other message board (xo..?).  Those basically said that there isn't a system at all that will help you and that all of the prep materials are simply taking advantage of the anxious and confused 1Ls.

General Board / Re: GRE v. LSAT

about 15 hours per week for a month and a half.  I read word power made easy for the analogies and used some prep books.  I also bought a computer program that mimics the real test.  That was particularly useful as my practice test scores on that program ended up being very similar to the real thing.  I can't remember the name though.

I found that it was a lot easier to raise your score by studying for the GRE, especially on the math sections.  When I took my first practice GRE test I got about a 550 math and 600 verbal.  I studied pretty hard and ended up getting a 690 math and 630 verbal.  On the LSAT I studies just as hard, if not harder.  I got a 163 on my first practice test and only got a 166 on the real thing.  The GRE material is much more concete and "learnable."

General Board / Athens, GA

Can any UGA students tell me how easy it is to get around Athens without a car?  What are the busses like?  I'm thinking about getting rid of mine to save money during law school.
