1. A hornbook and a commercial outline are practically the same thing. I think people often use the terms interchangeably. However, I would describe a hornbook as an overview of the course; while a commercial outline focuses on cases.3. The best hornbook is Examples and Explanations by Glannon. It is for civil procedure. The same company produces hornbooks for other classes and I will vouch for their Contracts and Torts hornbook. Personally, I did not like their property one. Beyond that, hornbooks are very similar and it probably doesn't matter which brand you use.4. Don't rely on hornbooks or commercial outlines. Brief cases and make your own outlines. Also, I highly recommend reading Law School Confidential. It really helped me hit the ground running. Attend every class and read every case twice. The second time through I highly recommend making notes in the margins and highlighting key phrases. Finally, besides reading LSC, don't try to get ahead over the summer. Relax. It will be your last opportunity to do that for three years.I can't say this will work for everyone but it enabled me to transfer from a T25 to a T5.Good luck.Good luck with
