Acing Property as a study aid?

Postby studebaker07 » Fri Mar 12, 2010 12:19 pm

Hey has anybody looked at the book "Acing Property" and found it useful? It was just published last month and I haven't seen any reviews on it. I am debating on whether to get this book or the Gilbert's guide. I found the "Acing Civ Pro" book very helpful which is why I am leaning towards Acing Property.

Also while we are on the subject, has anybody checked out "Acing Torts"? It was also recently released.

Never seen the books before, but also interested if anyone has used. The checklist approach that the description of the book mentions seems to be interesting. A checklist of every class is how I aced my first semester classes.

Self-made checklists. Would be helpful if a book had the same. Did I really have to clarify????

I'll buy Acing Property tonight and read it within a week or two-- I'm a little behind in my work, but I'll provide a comprehensive review on here before finals begin. For what it's worth, Property 3e by Burke & Stone was pretty worthless. As a brief overview of the course, it's fine, but absolutely all of their hypos are the issues that arise in most of the cases you'd expect to cover (Pierson v. Post, Moore v. Regents, Tompkins v. Superior Ct., Baker v. Weedon, etc.) but they don't really cite to those cases. I'm working on getting through Gilberts guide, and it definitely seems like an improvement.

I just found the book hiding out in our academic success reserve section. Going through the section on present and future interests right now. Seems good so far.
