I had a terrible time with Torts.  It is not nearly as complex as my prof made it out to be.  He made it very theoretical and made us read long-winded dissertations on academic b.s., when in reality, black letter Torts is not a big deal.

Second worse for me was probably Rule Against Perpetuity, Perfoy's Rule, Shelley's Rule -- all those ridiculous property rules that go beyond future interests, are barely used anymore, and border on the absurd.  Most law schools don't drill that in your head, but I go to a retarded law school, so I had to learn it.

Best wishes on your journey!

Save your money for a Gilbert's.  Besides, the best outlines are often the one's written by an upperclassman.  They are usually free.  Only an ouline keyed to what your prof thinks is important is going to help prepare for that specific exam.  I find it greats to have one good commercial and one good prof-specific outline for reference purposes.  Then you pay attention in class to see what your prof is covering that year.  Why study something that isn't going to be a focus for the exam?

Property, but more because of the prof.'s testing and teaching style than the subject matter.
