For real estate conveyances there was a paperback book by lexis publishing that people affectionately refer to as "the coloring book" -- it simplifies things really effectively --- has lots of drawn out conveyance examples, charts, etc...

I really like Gilbert's Law Summary for property. Like any commercial outline, however, just take what you need from it rather than going cover to cover.

"A student's guide to estates in land and future interests" - published by lexis nexis.  This is what I was referring to.  It's the only supplement I'll really endorse so far...

"Understanding Property" (Sprankling) and "Workbook on Estates and Future Interests" (Coletta)
