Thanks for the info on first year, SJ. What do you think of the relevance/usefulness of Getting To Maybe?
It's up to what you get out of it, but that said, it's officially recommended by the school, and many of our exam prep lessons specifically use quotes and citations.
Depending on where you at, and where your natural skill in legal analysis lies (some people have it) you might get less out of it. Especially if you are a prior grad student, you may already know a lot of things in the book. Some of the law-school specific strategies though are pretty useful.
If money isn't an issue, buy it. If it is, borrow it and flip through a few pages at the law library (they usually keep a copy or two on hand), and then decide.
