If you think this is bad, wait until you take the MBE. MPRE is nothing, relatively.

Don't get so excited, it's not that big of a deal. Spend a day or two going over the BarBri stuff and you'll probably be fine.
And if you're not fine, you can retake in August. (Although I wouldn't want to retake right after the bar...but it's still not such a big deal.)
2. G to A for life, then to B's children for life, but if B's children stop visiting their grandmother, to C and his heirs; B has one child
I don't agree on the RAP analysis on this one. Even though B could have more children, the death of B or the Rule of Convenience would close the class to the then-existing children at the time the LE came into being. There's a currently ascertained life in being, so not a RAP problem. Grandma could outlive the kids, but Grandma's not going to get the estate.
C's got a contingent remainder that could possibly be destroyed (rule of destructability in contingent remainders) if C dies off(or C and heirs die off) prior to B's children's life estate ending.
If C's remainder fails, then G (or heirs) has the reversion in FS.
Overall, though, nice job.

If you think that no LS or post-LS employer will ask for grades, then perhaps it'd be shrewd. I don't know that you can make that assumption, so perhaps you'll be screwed.
I liked Glannon's guide. I also got a brief book since it was my first class of the am and the prof. tended to call on me a lot, even though I wasn't awake.
I agree w/the Dr.'s assessment, but that goes with any supplement. It won't help if it's not covering what the prof. covers and visa versa.

There are some future-interests specific books. If that's the area you're having problems with, get one of those. (E.g., Estates in Land and Future Interests: A Step-by-Step Guide, Estates in Land and Future Interest: Problems and Answers; not sure which is best, check your law library or bookstore first and see if you can find what works best for you there.) If you need more general assistance, look at an outline or a briefbook, depending on whether or not you're having trouble putting it all together or you're having trouble w/the case law.

Watch the movie "Thank You for Smoking."
Then watch every movie you've ever wanted to see but haven't had the time. Then go outside in the sunlight and have a lot of fun. Then, maybe, learn to use the search functions of the internets.
