Just relax and enjoy your spring/summer. The first year is stressful enough without going nuts over the summer. Law school is unlike anything you've likely done before and finding what works for you will be an iterative process once school begins and you see what it is like. Forget the melodrama of 1L and ignore the magic claims of instant success promulgated by books like LSC and LEEWS. The first year will be tough, but you already know this and nothing those books tell you will change that. The hardest part of the first year is the psychological burden and the fact that the collective neurosis of all first years tends to feed off each other and breed a bizarre paranoia and no book will change that. Just relax and get ready to work hard and keep the right mindset. As for reading class books and outlines, stay away from those entirely. Until you see what different professors focus on and what they expect you to know, you'd just be wasting your time. Learning by the case method is an adjustment and for the first few weeks what you think the case means may be totally incorrect. Don't waste your time now reading material that you will likely interpret incorrectly and have to reread later. Also, you won't know what material will be important for exams until going through class and seeing what the professor cares about.
