This may sound a little stupid, but how the hell do I do an outline??? Yes, I understand HOW to put one together, but I'm not exactly sure what's supposed to be in it - especially this early in the semester.For example, I read ahead in various E&E's. Should I start outlining those, then fill in more information as the topics are covered in class? Or for Torts, should I be including specific case names we talk about in class or just the rules that come out of them? I know these seem like dumb questions, but everyone talks about outlining yet never explains the details...Suggestions?
I am also frustrated - like someone else mentioned - that some professors are all over the place! I don't know where the hell to put what they're saying in my outline. My crim law professor has spent FOUR DAYS discussing with us the question: What is punishment? Then expounding on all this philosophical garbage.
