LEEWS doesn't get much respect on tls, but I attribute some of my success to it. I never implemented the strict procedure or steps it recommends, but I think it put me in the right exam-focused, nit-picking state of mind before 1L started.

GTM good too, especially for policy (if i remember correctly)

And I mean a lot of time, so anything you think helpful/interesting. Prep books, pleasure, anything. Thanks.


How about the Holy Bible or the Koran, or whatever book your religion dictates? By all accounts it would make sense. They say you need faith and prayers to get through 1L.
