Well, my wife let me leave the house to go study in the library for a couple of hours today. Since I finally got MS Office from the school yesterday, I got around to actually outlining what I studied.
For my Torts, it wasn't too bad. Of course, not that many folks have Torts with Wellborn. I'd also read through it already, so just had to re-read and distill it into what I thought was the important information.
I had done the Property case already, since it was only one case. That case has also been making the rounds of slashdot every time an important decision was made, so I was already familiar with the basics. I just wish we could have the conclusion. It looks like after the decision was handed down that we read, that the case was finally settled, but it looks like they kept the settlement value secret.
Set aside plenty of time for the Constitutional Law reading. The first assignment includes the whole original Constitution (not getting to Amendments yet). Consider sitting next to a dictionary when you read it. I could get most of the words through context, but it is nice to have a dictionary on hand to confirm your suspected definitions. Plus the Constitution is fairly jam-packed with the facts. I ended up taking more notes on it than was probably necessary. Having the notes in more modern day English should make it easier to reference than turning to the original and trying to puzzle out a meaning with a Socratic professor bearing down on you at the time, though.
Since I studied at the public library, I was also able to grab a book on the Constitution that looks like it goes through section by section explaining what it means, and how it has been applied. It looks like it is written for lay people to read. I also grabbed a copy of the Federalist papers (they're free on-line, I know) in case I get some time. The Federalist papers will probably be a bear to read, though I'm hoping the Constitution book will help clear up some of the questions I had when outlining the Constitution.
