Matthies is right. A lot of retailers are giving buyers the option to upgrade to Windows 7.

General Board / Re: 1L First Semester textbooks - quick question
« on: June 20, 2009, 11:04:01 AM »
I agree with Reez on some points.

Yes, all profs have different preferences, so you can't assume that because the leading casebook in one area is the one your prof will use.

Some schools actually do release book lists early. Others don't. With some you have to wait till you get your schedule and section assignments which is usually during orientation, so you don't have time to order them online.

I think you can get some of your casebooks online cheaper if you have the time to order them and the time to shop around. Hit Amazon, ebay, and if you have the ISBN, use search by it instead of the title. I have gotten some real steals on casebooks and study aids online. There are some students that plan on reselling them and don't mark them up at all. Others are not that heavily marked up. The key is to order from someplace that is very specific about the condition of the book, not someone who just says "like new" or "good" because their idea of like new and good may not be the same as yours or the standards set forth on, for example, Amazon.

For my first semester, I couldn't order my books online because I didn't get my class assignments until orientation. From then forward, though, I ordered online and have cut my expenses in half, easily.

Also, I recommend buying new or at least unmarked books your first semester. Once you get a semester under your belt, you may find used with some highlighting is not that bad.

I also always buy whatever the edition the prof recommends, usually the most current. Some of my friends buy older versions, but a lot of my profs give assignments by page numbers, so they don't always correspond. And don't read in advance. Not all profs start at page 1. Most jump around and some even skip sections

There is substantial overlap but there is also new material in easy to understand terms. If you are struggling, it can definitely help fill in the gaps. I used it here and there but not regularly. In fact, I found my prof actually hit on some things in the supp but not in the casebook. Just my experience.

If you are looking for something short and to the point, I liked the Crunchtime: Evidence book and the Finals (Law School Exam Series) book on evidence. The outlines are condensed to the bare basics though, so if you are struggling with something, it may not be the best for you. If you are just looking for an overall study guide, they should be fine. Each also has sample Q&A and flow charts.

For con law, agreed ... Chemerinsky

I have the following books for sale. Most are 2L-3L but I have a torts book I used for advanced torts which is commonly used in 1L. I've listed asking prices but am willing to consider reasonable offers, especially is purchasing more than one item. If you are interested in any, email me at psunitlion2000@yahoo.com. Thanks

Torts:
Tort Law and Alternatives by Franklin (8th Edition, 2006). ISBN 1599410354. There is highlighting in four chapters only, three of which are the last three chapters of the book, and one in the middle. I used this book for a class that focused on defamation and invasion of privacy torts, so the beginning is brand new and unmarked. Ideal for a new 1L who is looking for clean pages, at least to start. - $75

Corporations
Cases and Materials on Corporations by Hamilton (10th Edition, 2007) ISBN: 0314180745. Comes with 10th edition statutory supplement, as well. Both the casebook and supplement have highlighting and some writing inside. - $60 for both books
