The Gilbert's commercial outline is excellent for property.

Man, I hated future interests. I found the Law in a Flash flash cards to be helpful though. They have one set just for future interests that is pretty decent.

My prof used this book as a supplement.  I have nothing but praise for it - the book goes through E&FI in a step-by-step fashion.  Although, if you're taking your exam soon, it's probably too late to use (but there is a basic chart in the back of the book).

Vap is right, that is an EXCELLENT book and one that my prof used this term as well. It made future interests (relatively) easy. I actually think property is going to be my easiest final this term.

Ditto on the book vap recommended. I think with future estates, the only thing that helps is practice, practice, practice. They're really like doing math and geometry proofs. It takes lots of practice, but once you get the hang of them, they're easy. Hang in there.

no no no...no to everyone.

Well, I have no problem with you getting a supplement, for the purposes of seeing problems.  But to get good, you need to treat it like math.  Get a crap load of problems and just work threw them maticulously

Thanks everyone. The exam was last night and I think it went really well especially with future estates questions .I would have to say the best items to use were. Law and a Flash Flash Cards for Future estates and Crunch time Property supplement. It has flow charts that help out!! Thanks again and for anyone who has issues w/future estates these will help.
