Re: hand-me-down outlines

I use these, but only to integrate in to my own outline... never just to read and have.

So I'll take 2-3 old student outlines from the class and use them in conjunction with my classnotes, CALI exercises and supplementary reading to create my own master outline. Generally I'll steal the structure of whichever one of the outlines I find most useful, but the rest is a cohesive effort. It's this "putting it all together" process that helps me to memorize it.

I'm terrible at organization, so usually my outline turns out to be a jumbled mess, but it's the process of doing it that is useful.

Breaking it into multiple sections, and writing each section out multiple times? Practicing application? And yea, I need to memorize this thing because the exam is closed book.

You lasted less than 6 hours without a permaban... Not bad.


Was this an alt of Me-a Culpa? The quoting style seems similar.

Same. CivPro right now = 4 old outlines, class notes, CALI, Freer Book, Whatever i hilighted in E&E and Glannon, Barbri outlines and lecture into 1 master outline. Master outline to flash cards. By the time I do them I'm set. Then its just practice exam time.
