I can't thank Edythec enough for recommending the Gilbert tapes. What a lifesaver! Recently, I had a Civ Pro exam coming up. I was terrified! My professor sucks and I didn't learn enough of the material through the Examples and Explanations book. I was seriously considering dropping out of law school, thinking that I must be a complete moron because I just didn't "get" Civ Pro. Then, I listened to the tapes. What an unbelievable change of perception! After listening to the tapes and typing an accompanying outline, I knew the material COLD! I took the exam and got every question right. My score surpassed others whom I had believed were legal geniuses. Without a doubt, the tapes work. Also, I would recommend the canned briefs from West (High Court Series) above Legalines. The West books are more succinct and categorized.
Thank you Edythec for your recommendation!

If it's more reading, it won't help me.  I just ordered LEEWS on CD.  Actually, it's more like I am on the waiting list since the CD version is not yet available.  I've heard so many people praise LEEWS that I thought it would be worth $145 to have the CD version.

Glad I could help.  I fell in love with the tapes when they got me through Contracts.  I have a set for each of my classes.  I find a different perspective always seems to work!  Congratulations on your great test results!
