    Great Preparation Tool!

    I've now read three books about how to prepare for law school, and I learned more from this one than I did from the other two combined! Unfortunately, after I bought the book, my law school gave it to me for free during orientation week. Even though I wasn't happy about that, it told me that this really is a good book for people who are about to begin their first year of law school. Even though I am giving this all five stars, there is one negative thing about it. The suggestions about the IRAC method used in the book were suggested against in another book I read, particularly for test-taking. However, that is a fairly minor thing compared to the other great things in this book!

    Worth the money, worth the time.

    I've read two different law school guides and this one dominates. Everything is simplified, clear, and viable. Besides having essential information it has a good focus on what 'not' to do in law school, which is just as valuable.

    I feel so much more prepared!

    I just received this book yesterday and read it all in one day - very interesting and easy to read. I am starting law school this fall and now I feel so much more prepared after reading this book. It explains in detail what to study and what not to waste your time on. It even has a glossary and explains some basic legal concepts which are good to know before classes start. If you are worried about what you should know before you start classes, this is a great book that is short, cheap and easy to read to make you feel better!

    This book is simple and insightful

    If you want the do's and don'ts of law school--look no further. This book is easy to understand and tells you exactly what you must do (and not do) to excel on exams.
