No, don't leave Noelle!  You're very helpful here!
See- I just gave you a +2!! :D

Nope.  I don't think you know me, I just wondered what happened.  Apparently I'm not liked here, though...since I have a -1 rating, whatever that means.  So I think I'm going to stop posting here now.

So is it tapes (not cd's), a manual (?) and exercises?

Paid a total of 80 bucks on e-bay.

Great rapunzel, thanks!
I was going to order it through www.leews.com.  So I will be getting audio tapes (does it come in CD's?,) a manual and a book to practice exercises, is that right?  All for $100?

Do law book stores also carry this?

Thanks again!

Worked through the tapes in Nov. of 1L.  Gave me an interesting frame of reference for my exams.  At best, I wasn't nervous because I had a plan to tackle the exams.  In some classes I did very well, in some not so well.  I had to reformulate my strategy to a degree for finals.  I think it's a very decent place to start.  It gets you thinking about how you will take a law school exam, which is a valuble skill in and of itself.

What's stupider than drugs?? :-\

Some people do drugs, which is the stupidest thing one can do.

Not necessarily... I can think of far stupider things

Awesome! I'll make sure to pick that one up! ;)

John Delaney's "Learning Legal Reasoning" is the best book on the matter. Though there are some rudimentary concepts (for 1Ls) covered, the "proper" way to brief is the focus of the book.

In essence,


FACTS
PROCEDURAL HISTORY
ISSUE
HOLDING
JUDGMENT
REASONING & POLICY

He emphasizes succint, well-organized briefs and helps with the concept of "issue spotting".

Even though this is very simple & brief- it's very good!

Thank you! ;)



Pray, exericise, and only hang out with people who are positive.

Drop all the negativity that is in your life because negativity brings you down.

Thanks!

K stands for contracts because there are so many other Cs--Con Law, Crim, Civ Pro, etc.

General Board / Re: Has anyone used Mavis Beacon typing software?
« on: April 24, 2005, 08:53:43 PM »
Oh! :D

No, no, no...I'm just saying that I owe my typing skills to that class.  If it weren't for MB, I wouldn't be able to type 65-70 wpm.

It's a great program...anyone can do it :)

Lol, so you're saying that it won't help an adult type faster?

When I was in 5th grade we used it in computer class.  It was great!  I haven't stopped typing since :)
