I'm going to be driving quite a few miles over Thanksgiving and was thinking of buying an audio study CD (for Bankruptcy course).  Any recommendations on which one?  Sum and Substance, Law School Legends, etc?

I don't know about your specific course, but I really liked sum and substance for other courses.

What is it like; some guy just lecturing about the subject?

I utilized the Civ Pro one with Professor Freer. Not sure if it was "Law School Legends" or Sum and Substance.  In any event, I liked it.  Listening during my commute just provided another means of absorbing some of the information.  I wouldn't soley depend on it, but if your using it instead of ESPN or your Ipod, then of course their worthwhile.

Yes, but usually just breaks down the BLL and important cases.  Not all the BS you get in class.

For the record, I picked up the Bankruptcy Sum and Substance and listened to it while driving home for Thanksgiving.  Its very good and I'd recommend to others.  My only complaint is that it overkills a bit--the 6 CDs compile about 6 hours of lecture.
