    This book saved my career

    In my first semester of law school, I was so lost as to what my professors expected of me and what to look for when reading the cases. I focused on all the wrong things. After reading this book, my studying has become more streamlined. When finals came around I felt more confident and performed better than I expected. This book should be recommended reading for every incoming 1L!

    top of the class

    i read this after the first semester of my one L year- turned my grades around and ended up in the top ten percent of the class. The book explains why your professors spend so much time talking about different rules and policy choices. I wish I had read it before I started law school. But even if you have already started, read it at the beginning of the semester- it will make your outlining better.

    I agree wholeheartedly with the previous review

    This book is essential to cutting through all of the advice on law school (Law School Confidential, LEEWS, Planet Law School, etc.) and explaining what types of legal reasoning law school exams test and what professors are doing with class time. Although that's a generalized description, the book is far more specific and worth your time.
