This book was an excellent supplemental source for reviewing for a contracts exam because it provided an overview of the concepts rather than summarizing cases.

Feeling lost in your contracts class? Does your casebook and/or professor make it seem like you'll never "get" contracts? Then buy this book... and make sure you read it! I bought this halfway through the semester, but didn't bother to read it until right before exams. I kick myself for such stupidity! Blum has prepared a clear and well-organized guide to 1L contracts with fun examples that are easy to remember and apply. Had I read this earlier, I believe I would have gotten a better, quicker grasp of the material. But, hey, I have contracts next semester too... and this time I'll be sure to use the E&E!
