Using a word other than "tag" to tag a thread does not make tagging the thread compliant with the forum rules; which clearly state no tagging threads.

If you are unwilling to bookmark threads, instead you need to write a post that at least pretends to have some content. Like this one.

Hi Arrow, I read through this topic but didn't see the questions I'm about to ask. Hopefully you can answer it for me at your earliest convenience. Considering the recent inactivity in this topic, I may send you a PM eventually :P

I am confused by what the difference between your 2-column notes and outline is. What does each include, and when do you generally spend time working on each?

Do you continue to read your E&E throughout the semester? Any other supplements you recommend?

What is your typical schedule like? What are your tasks on Wednesdays and Saturdays, for example?

I'm planning to take off 2-3 months before school begins to look at Getting to Maybe (handed down by my ex) and the other three materials (two Delaney's books and LEEWS audio, right?) you suggested. And maybe take a look through some E&Es. Hope this is enough time to finish all these if I spend a few hours a weekday. Thanks!

Hey a man human,

1) I guess it is hard to explain the difference between my "notes" files and my "outline" file. The notes file has small case summaries + class notes. I also placed questions I would ask the professor during office hours at the bottom. The outline has...well the outline, which consists of black letter law, policy, and a mini outline I would use for the exam.

The best way for this to be clearer would perhaps to show you. If you look under the "My Files" section of the article, I have attached a copy of ny "notes" file and my "outline" file. Hopefully this will make it crystal.

I work on my notes file when I read my briefs, as that is when I jot down the mini-briefs. I also work on my notes file during class, as that is where I jot down class notes. Furthermore, I work on my outlines mostly in my spare time, often as I am reading supplements. Often, I work on my outlines in class.

2) As for E&E's, I definitely read them throughout the semester. Some of the best supplements in my opinion are Glannons E&Es on Torts and Civil Procedure, Chemerinsky’s Constitutional Law, Chirelstein’s Contracts, Prosser’s Hornbook on Torts, Farnsworth’s Hornbook on Contracts, Dressler’s Criminal Law books, and of course various CALI lessons. And yes, I would really recommend LEEWS + Delaneys.

3.) I don't have "set" schedules like some people. I keep it pretty free to study whatever I feel like I need to. The basic mindset is to spend every waking moment studying, while balancing gym, food, health, social, and networking events. I usually read the cases for the week during the weekends, and follow along with supplements on the weekdays. Sometimes I spent like 3-5 days heavily on one subject and then would switch subjects and spend another 3-5 days on that.

I hope this helps!

I look at the files again (and again), and I think I get it. Please let me know if I'm wrong:

The notes are summaries of cases you skim through, plus relevant things you add to the cases during class. And if you have questions about them, you jot them down at the end. Since you said the cases aren't very important, I'm guessing this notes file is just to keep track of what goes on in class and what the prof likes to emphasize, not necessarily to memorize or deeply study.

The outline is a summary of the entire class, which you recommend memorizing. It may include important cases, but generally it only has laws and their application, which you use to form arguments during the test. Are there minor laws you include here, or do you only focus on black letter?

You also say you work on your notes file as you read briefs. By briefs, do you mean the cases or is there a separate place you get these "briefs" (condensed form of the cases, I guess)?

Your list of supplements seems to come from various authors and texts. Does that mean you didn't get the E&Es for Contracts, for example?

I apologize for the barrage of questions, but I'm trying to prep as best as I can since I was not a liberal arts major. I can't help but feel apprehended by all these horror stories and new jargon. Thanks again.
