Nah, that's just a sign of being anal ;).  I know plenty of lawyers and law students who are poor grammarians.  These are the same people who think Bluebooking is hell on earth.  I rather enjoy it.

 :D  I was wondering how you missed that given your comment, so I fretted over whether to correct it or not.  LOL!  I'm convinced that if this law thing doesn't work out, I'd try to be an editor of some sort!  lol

Hey that's one thing that never seems to get old though in our profession oddly enough.  I've been in practice for over a year and recruiters still call me talking about "I see you made law review. Congrats."   :D

Also, y'all neglected to warn a brother about future interests and poo. property's a bee-yotch. Got me sittin' in class like  ??? Y'all some duty breachin' mofos. ;D :D

Gilbert's Property Summary was a complete lifesaver for me when it came to understanding present and future interests.  My prof made the subject unnecessarily complicated, and Gilbert's breaks it down for you so well that you'll wonder why you were ever confused in the first place.  No matter what school or prof you have, I think Gilbert's Prop is one of the best ways to grasp possessory interests well enough to make sense of the stuff your prof is trying to communicate in class!  It presents the basic doctrine in a clear, succinct, but impeccably thorough manner!  You should easily be able to incorporate this book into your class/exam prep w/o feeling like you're trying to read a treatise in addition to your regular assignments.

Run, don't walk to get your own copy and see for yourself!!!  It looks like this: http://www.amazon.com/Gilbert-Law-Summaries-Jesse-Dukeminier/dp/0159007739

I wasn't using a Prop casebook written by Dukeminier, and yet this summary was still the most helpful I've found! 
 

I found "Workbook on Estates and Future Interests" extremely helpful. Has an excellent section on the RAP as well. I'm using this as my casebook at this point. I haven't read Property in weeks and understand (at least in class) better than my classmates who are still married to the casebook. For fellow and future 1Ls, the link is below.

http://www.amazon.com/Workbook-Estates-Interests-American-Casebook/dp/031418144X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1226425979&sr=8-1

oh yeah, and congrats on law review :P
