Finding hypos
« on: October 11, 2009, 08:01:37 AM »
Haldo, all,
    Needing a bit of help with a little problem I'm having.  3 of my 4 professors have no previous exams on file - 1 is entirely new as a law professor, 1 is only filling in for a professor who was unfortunately diagnosed with cancer in July and 1 merely guards past exams with a vengeance not unlike that of Smaug in The Hobbit.  Seriously, there was a huge scandal when, one year, a student finally found one of his past exams and used it...Anyway, obviously, I'm going to need to modify my studying a bit for these 3 classes - I was planning on building my own exams.  However, I've also found that if I write the hypos myself, I obviously know where I'm going with them, so they're not really that useful.  Does anyone have any suggestions for resources where I should be able to find hypos to work on? I specifically need Contracts, Property and Criminal Law.  Also, anybody have any tips on putting together these hypos to make semi-realistic practice exams? I'm interested in both books and online stuff....Thanks in advance for the help!

Try I've used it for Contracts, and thought it was pretty helpful.

Hope all's well, Netopolis! Haven't talked to you since we traded personal statements long long ago!
