LEEWS, Delaney, or "Getting to Maybe"?

I have already purchased Getting to Maybe.  I don't want to buy all three, so I'm wondering if I should buy LEEWS or Delaney's "How to Do Your Best on Law School Exams."  I think I'll post this on the Students and Graduates Board also.

Thank you for posting this thread.  I also want to know since I've heard good things about all three but wonder how different each is from the others.

Well gee, if PLS says it, it must be true. I'm sure a lot of people are getting something out of PLS.. but those have got to be the most stuck up people, at least some of them. I'm about to start LS, and don't pretend to know any of the answers about whats the "best way" to do anything, at least not yet. But I work for a law firm, and i've spoken to a ton of attorneys, and here's the one thing I've learned:
There is no "one" best way to do it. The whole trick is figuring out what works best for you. Maybe the tips in some of these books will help you, maybe they'll not but help someone else. The problem with the PLS people is that they think that there is one way and one way only to prepare for and succeed in law school. That's complete bull.

3Peat never said HE considered those books to be the best, but merely offerred the suggestions of a particular book. You assumed he found those books to be "the best and only way" to study for law school, and ran with it. Calm down.

see, this is why law schools use the lsat as a predictor of success. if you are prone to making a bunch of unwrranted assumptions the lsat will show it.  how can they teach law AND show you how not to be am assuming jackass?

No problem.

Well, it looks like I am either going to do "Getting to Maybe" or "Getting to Maybe + LEEWS...
