Does anyone have a suggestion for a good supplement to go along with the Dukeminier Property casebook?

Get the Gilbert's, it is written by Dukeminier himself.

Used the book for Property last semester, lots of old cases that are tough to read in the beginning, cases get more interesting towards the end.  Cases tend to be really long and dry.  Unlike contracts and torts, the book does not use restatements so putting together the black letter law from the cases is difficult.  The notes after the cases are OK, but you will definately want something that defines what the black letter law.  The reading for future interests and rule against perpetuities was not very useful, so you will want to get some flash cards for these topics.  Most schools have supplements available on reserve at the library, check out a few and see which complements the case book the best.

I have the Gilberts and I LOVE it!  I am not usually one to use supplements, but a friend recommended this one and it has been invaluable.

After looking though a few supplements, I went with the Gilbert's. I bought one used for only $13 so that helped.
Thanks for the suggestions.

I also have this textbook. I've found the Lexis book, Understanding Property Law, to be an excellent and concise supplement.
