I have heard that these crash courses really give you a great head start on your first year. has anyone taken one or known someone who has taken one?

Waste of money and time.  Read a commercial outline if you want to be a miserable gunner feminine hygiene product.

I recommend LEEWs in person if you can.  It's technically about writing a good law school exam but I got the greatest value from the way it sort of does a full disclosure of what law school classes do and don't do, and what you're expected to do to fill in the gaps in preparing for and doing well on exams.  I wish I had taken it earlier, even before school started to get off on a much better foot.  $130 or so well spent. 

I can't speak to the tape version, the website says its just as good, but my gut is that going to a live session is best.

I'd say taking a pre-law course to prep you for law school is about as necessary as taking a pre-college course to prep you for college.

K?

just from what i've read (from law school advice books) - those courses might help you feel more comfortable the first couple of weeks in law school, but pretty soon *everyone* gets into the rhythm of things and you're back on even ground.

so no, unless you like spendings tons of cash and losing your summer vacation, i wouldn't do it.

Waste of money. So is LEEWs and anything about law school exams. If you want to prep, just briefly read examples and explanations. Nothing more is needed.
