Can't exactly do any of this ish from work (besides order the laptop, hence my previous question). But thanks for the link and your attempt at a helpful response.

EDIT: do you have any study aid preferences (by course)?

Stand under my Umbrella ella ella, aye!!

Really so stressful you're planning on getting wasted midway through the week?

I am about to start law school myself.....so I really am in the same boat as you, as far as not knowing which study aids to use.

can't remember which thread but: Examples and Explanations especially for K was the general consensus.  The cards by Aspen Publishers for all subjects particularly civ pro and K.  LEEWS (www.leews.com) is something that I'd like you to look into.  If $$ is an issue, get the primer it's $30.  Getting to Maybe is a very good look as well.  (Glannon's and Finals were two other names that popped up)

This stuff may be on the 1L thread but you'll have to do some digging.  However, I feel like I need to warn you guys...do not get into the supplement war!  I did, lol.  What that is basically is the phenomenom that many 1Ls get sucked into where they see their friend with one supplement and they go run to the store and get the same one -even if they have 3 supplements already.  Supplements are just that...additional/supplmental reading.  There's one supplement for K that I want you guys to order but I forgot the name...I'll repost when I get home later on tonite.

I think a good idea would be to have the supplement open while you are reading the case.  Doesn't really matter which supplement..it's all about the style you like.  Personally, I like getting other ppl's outlines and adding my own spin to it as I read the cases.   Why?
  because sometimes the cases do not go thru all the elements-  they may only talk about 1 or 2 so it's best to have something else that covers the area.  Use classes as review..not learning.  Write down the questions the prof asks.
