LEEWS, Delaney, or "Getting to Maybe"?
« on: June 19, 2005, 06:49:41 PM »
I have already purchased Getting to Maybe.  I don't want to buy all three, so I'm wondering if I should buy LEEWS or Delaney's "How to Do Your Best on Law School Exams."

I just finished Getting to Maybe and loved it.  If you're unfamiliar with legalese, you might not understand it very well.  I feel so much more confident now that I have an idea of what professors are actually looking for-- and it's not the IRAC method!!

Yea - I think I'm going to do Getting to Maybe + LEEWS, but I flipped through PLSII and he strongly recommends Delaney.  I already purchased Getting to Maybe and I don't have time to do all three so I'll probably stick with Getting to Maybe.  I am considering returning it and getting Delaney though (e.g. if I suddenly discover that Delaney is much better than GTM).

I skimmed Law School Confidential, and did use their "book briefing with 5-color highlighting" for the 1st semester anyway

I heard that it doesn't work because the colors bleed through the pages and it's all messy... ?

Sorry if I sound ignorant (I;m starting 1L in the fall) but what is LEEWS, Gilbert's & Emmanuel's?

I was just at the new student reception for incoming FIU 1L's.  They told us to buy "Getting to Maybe".  I also picked up Barron's "How to Succeed in Law School".  It also helps with briefing, etc.
