I like the Examples and Explanations stuff, and Seigels for exam prep.  I used them last semester for hypos and stuff, and thought they were decent.

Did you have Main? If you didn't check out his grades. You can definately tell he taught at a school that is required to give out a lot of D's. I feel bad for other people in that class....oh well....

I liked the High Court Case Summaries. The briefs in them were good.

Gannon Guide to Civ Pro; E&E for Torts; High Court Case Summaries was helpful for Con Law

I don't know if they're considered supplements, but the Law in a Flash cards on Estates and FI, and contracts were very usefull for me, especially down the stretch. I desparately needed the civ pro cards, but could not find them. I also found the E&Es very useful.

e&e's for civ pro and torts.

everyone uses e&e for civ pro and it is VERY GOOD

e&e for torts isn't that good as far as i was concerned, it definitely didn't cover everything covered in class, i used mastering torts, it went along with my casebook, so it was excellent, i am not sure how helpful it would be if you had a different casebook

i really liked the farnsworth hornbook for my farnsworth contracts casebook, it is long, and some other people i know didn't really like it, but i found it very helpful, emmanuels is good, however, your professors may not agree with everything said in it

i bought gilberts for property but never really looked at it, had an excellent outline for my professor from a 3L

I asked the same thing this summer before i started and a lot of people told me to wait and see what i thought was helpful, the only thing i can definitely tell ou to get is E&E for civ pro

HTH
