Suggestions for practicing Crim?

Hi All,

Anyone have any suggestions for a good book to practice Criminal Law hypotheticals/examples?  How's the E&E?  Seigel's?  I really just need the practice problems and solutions b/c my prof only gave us one test to practice with.  Thanks!

I think I used Siegels more than E&E. I'd say look at both and go with whichever looks closer to what your prof. gives out as an exam.

Another thing is to do a google search for crim law exams. Sometimes that works. Again, if you have at least one from your prof, try to use that as a guide for what's "similar".

I just took my crim exam yesterday.

I did a lot of E&E questions but I wrote them out as if it were an exam question. I made sure to bring in analysis of mens rea, conduct, causation, etc, so I would be comfortable with not just writing about the obvious issue.
Having the correct answers to refer back to is a huge plus in finding your weaknesses in any given topic.
