Quote from: dgatl on September 15, 2004, 07:04:55 AMruskie, get the E&E by Glannon. its a really good explanationI already have it, but it itsn't helpful in some topic areas. I looked at it the other night to try to get some additional information to clear up rules 12(h) and 12(g) and which motions could be filed at which point, but it had a very brief overview of pre-trial motions and nothing that explained the specific point that confused me. I agree with Nova, the wording of the rules can be tricky at times. I understoon 12(b) just fine but the application of 12(h) and 12(g) had me confused.Prettylily,I actually do much better with Torts than with Civ Pro, but I have heard from people who were having trouble in Torts that E&E is the best commercial supplement for that course.
We're learning the basic general progression of a case as it starts from the original filing of a complaint through the trial.A recommendation I had heard was to attempt to read the stuff on jurisdiction first, to get the ground work (obviously, if this is what you're doing ignore this). Additionally, I've purchased the "EZ Rules: Civil Procedure" book which gives you a broader overview. I wouldn't rely upon it for your knowledge, but it gives you a bit of a "dumbed down" look at each rule.
Yup, civil pro is killing me too....i read the stuff and think i understand it, then get to class and find out i've been concentrating on the completely wrong issue. but i've heard there's a (glannon???) book that really helps explain it. people in my class have been following it and they said they understand the course much better.
