About 2/3 of a page, of course, they are truncated cases from the case book.

Well the briefs and notes (class discussion) about the briefs run about 45 pages (48 cases) and I'm up to 62 pages right now, then I started outlining the reading in civ pro and contracts for the remainder.
After my first experience w/being called on I think it's a great idea. Lawyers should be competent to quickly articulate the law and their understanding of the facts. I did ok, got the facts right, but when I slowed (1sec pause) she called on someone with their hand up. Which brings up another topic, in my class at least if someone even slightly faulters in asking a question 10 hands shoot up to answer the question. I didn't feel bad but I can see where some would feel like they are being one-upped by their fellow students.
Ok so in my classes we ask tons of questions and give the profs hypos which they usually throws back at us. We, of course, maddly write (type in my case) down all of them. How likely is it that the prof will take one of the hypos we came up with and put it or a variation of it on the exam?
I think they may, because I gave the prof a hypo and she says "that's a good question I think I'll put that on an exam; <pause> not yours of course." So given that statment can I conclude she wouldn't put a hypo we came up with on an exam or just that specific one?
textbook page # was one thing I added to the table the 2L gave me. If the prof asks some dumb question that isn't related to the issue in the case I want to be able to look up the case quick. This has already happened, the student says the PP did xyz and the prof's like what was the PP's name? I'm thinking who cares, the name has nothing to do with the rule of law we're trying to learn.
