    Not a Bad Book for Someone Considering or Entering Law School

    This book was on the optional Summer reading list for the ABA-accredited law school I will be attending. It is still relevant, to a great degree, and has some very good insights and tips for students. It is a little dated, but not terribly so. The only book on the list that was required reading was Succeeding in Law School by Herbert N. Ramy. I'm not sure one is better than the other, but I liked Succeeding in Law School more.

    Decent

    This book is OK but there are much better ones out there. The author seems to have an overly complex/convoluted approach to creating casebriefs, outlines and study tactics. It still contains some good concepts however.
