In my opinion, these articles are the best resource available for succeeding in law school. My guide
: Focuses on the skill of taking a law school exam, and how to teach yourself that skill. I was the top of my class 1L year at a T14. http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... 2&t=120673Other guides:

: Like some others in the thread, I disagree that the amount of effort described by that poster is required for strong, even top of the class, performance. It's the first guide posted from "this season" however, and certainly contains good advice and discussions. While I don't vouch for it as strongly as the others, I include it for the sake of completeness.
Talon's guide, in my opinion the best and most thorough guide written on success in law school. Talon was in the top few students at a T10: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... 2&t=123699

Xeoh85's Advice on Success in Law School. Xeoh85 was #1 at UCLA. http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... =2&t=36635DISCLAIMER:
I have the same general concern here as I do with mscarn23's guide. I've seen a lot of people work that hard without results, so please look to these guides for the useful advice and not for justification of trying to just
out-work the competition.

TLS article about success in law school (unique perspective):http://www.top-law-schools.com/success- ... chool.htmlDISCLAIMER:
This guide is a little extreme, and gets a lot of press because it's on the site as an article rather than as a post in this section. It's got a good perspective, but don't think it's gospel because it came "first."
