Do you understand the law involved in each case after you've done this?If you do, you're brilliant. I'm spending a lot more time on each case than that.

I'm spending a lot more time on each case than that.As far as I know, yes. I mean, I feel like I do, and after that quiz I had the #4 score out of 67 in our class, so apparantly I'm answering the questions right I suppose. I'll see how that end of things holds up. I guess I mostly want to know is if cases + class notes is pretty much it. There seems to be a ton of unnecessary reading to get to the cases in each book, which I just gloss over. I see everyone in else coming in with all that stuff in pages of notes. And then in class they're all like secretaries banging away on their keyboards like total freaks.I'm just trying to ascertain if the cases + taking notes on what the professor says in class is pretty much going to cover typically would be on an exam.Like, when you say it's taking you several hours to 'get it' so to speak, can you give me an example of something, or some concept that held you up for a while?
If you are among the 0.01% of people who can put in no time studying and still do great in school, then wonderful. But you arent in law school to pass a class. you are in law school to learn a profession. How much more capable a lawyer could you become if you put in 5hrs a day of studying? how much better could you represent the interests of your client?
