DAMN GOOD BOOK
This is an awesome book for those about to enter law school or just thinking about it. It explains the simplest things without seeming condescending. It also clarifies some extremely hard to understand stuff that you must comprehend to excel. So far it is the best book I have found to help prepare for law school. I will start law school in the fall 2002 and i have a feeling it is a book i will keep to use as a quick reference throughout my experience.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Have no Fear: The Shapos are here
Helene and Marshall Shapo, law professors and parents, wrote this remarkable book as advice for their child who was entering law school. Actually, the book was not written FOR their son, it is rather a superb collection of the tips and rules they bestowed upon him before he became a 1L. This 200 page handbook goes a long way in preparing one for their first year as a law student. The authorship is in plain English so that entering law students can have unfettered access to the wisdom of the writers. They provide excellent direction on how to brief a case, legal reasoning, studying and reviewing and exams. What I particularly enjoyed about the book was that the authors do not presme you know anything about law. They never talk 'over your head' and most of the book is in a conversational tone. It sometimes feels like the authors are your parents and are sitting you down to give you friendly advice. A wise woman once said: 'Be careful whose advice you buy.' In this case, however, the advice is well worth the asking price.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
