Dont get me wrong, I would still read it, I am reading ton of stuff this summer, novels, prep books, even basic books about what torts are, etc.. However, in the back of my mind I am just prepared to 'let it all go' once my classes start in a few weeks. In response to the question about IRAC, it stands for Issue, Rule, Application, Conclusion. The idea is that you approach exam questions by applying this four step approach. I would assume it is still a valid way of approaching questions, but keeping in mind the GTM recommendations of 'looking beyond' the cases themselves, thinking about policy arguments and making points for both sides.
I agree...I started reading and got through the first 100 pages and have since then put it down. I got the basic common sense idea and was lost with their examples since I haven't yet taken a contracts class. The weakness to the book is definitely that they don't really give examples (unless I just haven't read that far yet) but write in theory. Can someone please tell me what IRAC stands for and their opinion of the book?
As far as the question to the thread, I would start reading it now, once you get the gist, put it down and pick it up and refresh yourself around finals.
