Getting to Maybe is a very good look as well.

How big of a help was it on exams? Do you think it offered substantially more help than basic prep?

Got books, all used, no highlighting.  I'm feeling a little better. Now to investigate "One Note"...worth it?

It's all I use.  The outlining function (i.e., bulleted outlines) is far more sophisticated than Word's.

You might also try getting the academic version from your school's computer store.

cui bono?

Actually it was a real help (except I got my hands on it kinda late).  It lets you know some of the pitfalls and kinda focuses you more than I think basic prep would.  For instance it tells you what to look for in deciding whether the professor is talking about commonlaw vs. some statute and what to look for during class that would help you determine what the prof wants on that issue.

congrats on making it thru.  Just remember: doesn't matter...grade may or may not be raised if you give good answers on a consistent basis.  All about the exam, try to get some practice ones.
