If you are using Dukeminier, honestly, the book itself is awesome (for a casebook).  I use that with Gilbert to supplement, but usually my professor likes to pick out little things in the cases not covered in Gilbert, or other commercial outlines (which again, makes the casebook so good).  E&E is not all that good, but it helps indeed, read it after you cover it in class and you will understand the lecture better! 

Something else which may help you is Moynihan "Introduction to the Law of Real Property" which covers Future Interests thoroughly.

The Lexis book (the "Understanding" series) is good for property.  I forget the author's name . . . maybe Sprankling or something like that?

For Property 1 I used the Understanding Series book by Lexus.  I actually read the whole thing in the first week of class, and just skimmed it the rest of the semester.  I also used the E and E book, but will admit it sucks to learn from (however it is great to use for answers on a test).

I would go with the Understanding book.  It is written clearly and covers everything you need to know.  The only drawback is it has no problems to test yourself on like E and E.
