I suggest getting a paperback law dictionary. The computerize version would work great during the school year, but maybe not on exam day. In my case, Santa Clara has informed me that on exam day that I would have limited use of my laptop. They will install a program for the test and another one to block out all other functions on my computer. An electronic dictionary would be pretty useless. My guess is that a PDA would probably not be allowed either. Check with your school.
