Anyone have success just using commercial outlines?
« on: October 31, 2005, 08:20:20 AM »
I've been outlining (using my casebook's table of contents as a reference) and found I was simply transposing my commerical outline (Gilbert's) to my computer. So I thought, "why reinvent the wheel?". My thought is just to use Gilbert's and add any class notes I have to that outline.

Has anyone had experience with this technique?

I'm sure it works for some people.

The actual process of making an outline/flash cards is what I think helps cement everything into my brain. 

If you learn in a way where you can get away with just Gilberts, power to you. I know I'd get dropped like a bad habit however.

Ditto Coxless.

It's the process, not the product, that matters most.
