Advice on Study Aids/Hornbooks! PLease!
« on: January 21, 2006, 12:05:34 AM »
Hi!

 Can anyone tell me what study aids they would reccommend (besides the E&E/Understanding Series) for:

Torts
Property
Crim Law?

 Thanks!

I would definitely get Dressler's two supplements if you are using his casebook. The understanding series explains things well, and the black letter outline is an awesome outline of the book. Don't bother with any other crim supplements.

the Dressler "Understanding Crim Law" book is a godsend...I would say 3/4 of the people in my class only read that book and were fine...I find it is the easiest and most helpful of all the crim supplements

Someone mentioned it for Property, but I second.

Sprankling's Understanding Property Law from Lexis.

But have you tried some of the texts from Emanuel? I like hsi outlines and the Crunchtime series is pretty good.
