Definitely Chemerinsky for conlaw, if you're willing to put in the time (it's a big book).  If you have the Dressler book for crim, I've heard (from multiple sources, including Miss P) that Dressler's Understanding Crim Law is good.  If you have the Krier book for property, there's an Emmanuels or Gilberts (I always get them mixed up) that's written by Krier.  E&E was also somewhat helpful, though I think crunchtime might have been more helpful.

As always, plug for the E&E's.  For Con Law anyway.  It wasn't so helpful for Crim though.  But the Con Law E&E is thorough, especially on the substantive rights stuff.

For Property, Crim and Con Law I would suggest the PMBR multiple choice question book.  If you can answer those, you will be well prepared!

Crunchtime is the best.  Last semester I only had one for contracts and it was my best grade.  This semester I already have the crunchtime for all of my classes.  Also, this website is good RAP tutorial, when you get there.
