I used Gilberts and Prop was my highest grade last semester (A- on a C+ curve).  I studied almost exclusively from Gilberts

The only thing I used was the Barbri outline.  I'm not fond of Barbri, but for Property, it was great.

i had a 24 hour open book final so i tried everything.  I had both Gilberts & Emanuels & agree that Gilberts is much better for property (although I normally prefer Emanuels).  Also had E & E & Understanding Property, along with some single subject ones- eg my Prof was really into takings.

I've used Understanding Property Law by Sprankling. I got an A last semester on a C- curve and used the supplement exclusively

That's insane. That's like getting an A+++++ on a regular, undergrad curve.

Understanding Property Law by Sprankling is very good.

The E&E is very good, but weaker in some areas (e.g. covenants). On the plus side: it has hypos. I think it's very strong on estates and future interests. Very simple explanation of EFI's and good hypos.

Gilberts on Property is good too. If you are going to pick one I would probably go with Understanding Property Law (depending on your needs though).

typo there, I meant C+...that would be insane if that were the case
