General Board / Aspen blog contest
« on: February 04, 2012, 12:00:37 PM »
FYI, Aspen is running a blog contest right now -- if you write about your best law professor (you don't have to use the person's name), you could win a free Kindle Fire with two study aids of your choice loaded onto it.

General Board / Anyone going digital with their books?
« on: December 02, 2011, 02:37:46 PM »
So, I've been testing out the digital versions of casebooks by Aspen/Wolters Kluwer (http://www.aspenlaw.com/smartbooks), and they seem pretty great. You can do everything you can with books -- highlight, write notes in the margin, etc. Plus, you can click a tab and see all the highlighted notes and margin notes pulled out separately. And there's a function called "Brief Builder" where you just fill into a template the facts, holding, etc., and then you can export the brief to a text file or Word doc. And, of course, the best benefit of all -- you don't have to carry that 200-pound Con Law book with you everywhere.

So, I was just wondering: Are others using digital books?

Studying and Exam Taking / Book to help with exams
« on: October 30, 2011, 10:56:54 PM »
For those of you thinking about exams, you might be interested in this book: http://www.aspenlaw.com/product.asp?catalog_name=LegalEd&product_id=1454806079

It's called Open Book, and it's a book for 1Ls written by a Harvard prof and NYU prof. They give lots of test-taking tips and tell you what professors want to see on exams.

Also, you can go to the book's website (http://openbook.wolterskluwerlb.com), which has lots of free videos and excerpts of practice exams.
