Final Exam Study Question

Postby sanpiero » Sat May 01, 2010 4:24 pm

Curious to know what TLS-ers do after they've finished their outline, studied their outline, and finished all the pertinent professor's previous exams???

Thoughts?

The exam is Property, if that is of any help.

Cali lessons are alright, although a lot of the time I find it discussing topics outside the scope of my course which annoys me to no end.

I typically pick up hornbooks/crunchtimes/gilberts/emmanuels and just either do problems or read them over trying to gain new perspectives on my subject.

Fake blood? Not hardcore enough. Prepare to just miss LR.

If I remember correctly, CALI did have some good property lessons.

Thanks for your input, apper. Is it possible to register for CALI without going through the CALI representative at your school (i.e. could I hop onto the site, pay, and go through some lessons tonight)?

What was your general approach to the lessons? Did you take written notes and then incorporate any insights into your outline after the lesson?

I have no idea how the reg process works. They registered all of us here right away as CALI lessons were required for our LRW classes.

My approach was to just do them all. It was the practice that was important. I really wasn't outlining the course, but I'd take notes on things I made major mistakes on or wasn't even close on. If there was a concept I was screwing up over and over, I'd go to my commercial outline/class notes/etc. to check it out and relearn it.

I go to the law library without books or computer, sit down at a table, and just stare my classmates right in the face while they try and study.

Be sure and remind them that the rest of their lives depend on the outcome of these exams.

When exams approach, I am usually done with my outlines and done taking practice exams several days in advance. So, I will empty my apartment's closet and set up an altar, sort of like this:

Two days before the exam, I will begin fasting. Then, the night before the exam, I will sacrifice something at the altar that symbolizes the next day's class (for instance, a baby calf for contracts or a fox for property). I will collect the chattel's blood in the goblet (on the far left of the table) and drink it. This has worked quite well for me.

If you're really bored, try doing what one person did in the class above mine - focus on making your outline look beautiful. This one had drawings of the cases (Made in MS Paint), a variety of fonts and was inexplicably pink. Even us guys in the class used it, though, because the information was fantastic.
