I agree you should probably wait until classes start. Although there are benefits to buying now (you can usually get a lower price on amazon or ebay because the damand isn't as high), you might find yourself with a shelf full of books you never even crack open either because you don't need to or you just don't have time because you bought 5 outlines for 1 class.
If you are determined to start buying now, ones I would recommend that probably are not a bad investment either way are Glannon's E&E for Civ Pro and as previously mentioned Chemerinsky for Con Law.
I found it helpful. Some subjects more so than others. I agree it might not go into as much detail as your prof does, but no outline except one from a 2L or 3L who had the same prof usually does. ALso, it isn't meant to be as in depth as an E&E.
I have a torts casebook for sale.
Tort Law and Alternatives by Marc A. Franklin, Michael D. Green, Robert L. Rabin. Eighth edition, 2006.List price is $162. I'm asking $65 + shipping.
Book is in very good condition. 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.
I also have a 2008-09 Bar/Bri first year review book. New, no marks. Has outlines for all 1L classes as well as practice exams.
I also have some upper level books listed over on the students & grads page.
email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested or for more info.

I agree. The Civ Pro E&E by Glannon is very good. My prof actually recommended it. I didn't use it for the entire class, just areas where I was struggling. It spelled things out very clearly.

I agree with Unbiased. Some profs will recommend one while others will recommend against one.
Also, I don't think you'll an E&E, commercial outline and hornbook for every class. You'll find some classes easier than others and might not need any. Others you might need and E&E and an outline just to supplement your own.
Also, some of these can become quite expensive so wait, talk to other students at your school who had the class with the same prof and see what they used, and check out your library. They probably have some on hand for you to flip thru to see which you might prefer and works best for you before you invest a ton in everything.
that said, if you are looking for a quick review right before finals, I always liked the Crunchtime series. It was very short and to the point, gave helpful exam tips, and had practice Q&A's.
