i agree with the above poster. i treated all my open book exams differently, and did far better than on the closed book exams. why spend time memorizing the elements of adverse possession when i can look on my table of contents, find the page, flip to the page, and have the elements in front of me in less than 5 seconds? if you think you can't spare 5 seconds in an exam, you're an idiot. much better than trying to cram all that information in your head...

If they do not allow you to use commercial outlines, you just create yourself summaries of those same commercial outlines on a piece of paper to take them with yourself ... easy
