It really depends on the class: the more lost I am (sometimes there will be classes where the subject matter just doesn't "click" as easily as others), the more inclined I am to make my own outline- if it's just a black letter law or code class, I use someone else's. Right now I making my own for corporations, even though I have an excellent outline from someone else to use. Try both ways and see what works for you.

Also, some professors, particularly 1L, will only let you bring in an outline for the exam that you wrote.

Jacy's advice is good. An outline will only get you so far. You really need to do your own outline, check it against one from another source and then do hypos if it is an essay exam. If it is multiple choice get a study aid like Exam Pro. Here is a good article on taking essay exams
