More About This Textbook


Following the format of the highly successful Glannon Guide series, The Glannon Guide to Property: Learning Property Through Multiple-Choice Questions and Analysis provides a concise, clear, and effective review of property topics through the use of multiple-choice questions. After each question the author explains how the correct choice was chosen, so that students learn how to analyze exam questions while they review course material. Among the features that make this concise review so effective are:

  • discussions in the text that prepare students to learn effectively from subsequent questions
  • clear explanations of correct and incorrect answers that help to clarify nuances in the law
  • multiple-choice questions that are neither too difficult nor unrealistically straightforward
  • its usefulness as a study aid regardless of whether students will be tested by multiple-choice questions or in another format
  • an extremely user-friendly and interactive approach
  • a more challenging final question in each chapter (the “Closer ”) that illustrates a sophisticated problem
  • fifteen “Closing Closerquestions in the last chapter that provide practice and helpful review of concepts in earlier chapters
  • valuable exam-taking pointers interspersed within the substantive text

You can recommend The Glannon Guide to Property: Learning Property Through Multiple-Choice Questions and Analysis for exam review to your students with confidence.
