I picked up E&E instead of Emmanuels. I like it better because of the problems.

But the code...the code keeps slowing me down...I HATE IT!

More suggestions are welcome!

I took this and corporate Tax,International tax during my LL.M. This is how I handled the tax classes. I made a table writing down all section the prof. discussed in class. I used the same chapter headings as the code mentioned.
It looked somethng like this:

2. Deduction
a. Secxx - in  one line what it says
Relevant cases - its importance in one line.
b....
c...
3. credits[/b]
Secxxx -
Cases
The entire table was one page. I carried it in my purse.

I then learnt this table byheart. I could tell you in my sleep what a section stood for and what case was under it. This helped me in class cause my mind worked very fast and as the Prof brought up new topics I could quickly link them to old topics. My lowest grade in a tax class was B+.
