Gilbert's is and Emanuel's should be, though Gilbert's will likely be less useful for Singer's casebook as opposed to the one by Krier (and Dukeminier).

Also, there is this Property hornbook written by Singer, but I doubt it's very helpful. I got a similar hornbook for Torts that was by Epstein (like my Torts casebook) and it was basically a rehash of all the things in the casebook in a more coherent form. Not sure if there's a lot of value in that, personally.

I have the Singer casebook as well, so I checked out Intro to Property. One review on Amazon says that the book doesn't offer anything above and beyond the Singer casebook, so it isn't very valuable. There aren't a lot of reviews, so I don't know how accurate it is, but it made me second-guess spending the $40. I just got Understanding Property instead.


I have the Singer casebook and found the E&E to be very helpful. I did well in the class.

any updates or over-all consensus on what worked best. I've got DUKEMINIER 7th Edition now, and can't decide between the Understanding Property, and the Gilbert outline written by Krier

I LOVED the "Glannon Guide to Property" by Smith, I also used Understanding Property somewhat but honestly the Glannon Guide is all that is necessary.

I agree, the Glannon guide is all you need and then practice on old exams. This may help with future interests

The Gilbert's property book is incredible. I also used the Understanding Property but I didnt like it as much.

Also, I'm a Student Rep for Wolters Kluwers so if you need any Academic Success Titles, Examples & Explanations, Emanuel Law Outlines, CrunchTime, Law in a Flash, Blond’s, Friedman’s, Siegel’s, Aspen Treatise Series, and Bar review titles go to --LinkRemoved-- and enter code REP108 to get 25% OFF UR TOTAL PURCHASE.

I also have the Singer casebook. What property supplements do you think would be best? I'm thinking about buying either the E&E, Understanding Property, Singer's treatise or Glannon's Guide.

I have the 7th edition Dukeminier/Krier/etc case book. (2010). but is there no updated Gilberts supplement yet? this is the most recent Gilberts Property supplement I found (2006) http://www.amazon.com/Gilbert-Law-Summa ... 0314172335 or is there a more recent 2010 version I somehow have not yet come across? also, what is the best e&e for this casebook (if you have a link to amazon that would be amazzzingg)Thanks!

This + I used the Emanuels occasionally (don't know how helpful it really was until grades are back obviously)


One more vote for Understanding. It rocked.

After flipping through it, it appears that the supp will be particularly helpful for outlining the right stuff. I found one on half.com for about $8, which was sweet.


As others have mentioned, the Gilbert's is actually by Krier now, although it was originally written by someone else. I used Gilbert's for Dukeminier and it was great, but Krier was my professor, so take it as you will. If your test is going to be heavy blackletter and/or multiple choice, Gilbert's is the way to go.

Gilbert's for any law book seems to work pretty well. It may not give you as in-depth or nuanced studying as some other supplements but it works really well to hammer down the important points and make sure you see the big picture.
