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!
