500+ old MBE questions. These are dated (go as far back as 1972) but I found the property ones useful since property hasn't changed much since then. I don't think I'd use them for any other subject w/o verifying the answers elsewhere first.

Not that I looked at any others, but...

I'm not sweating it. I'm not directly linking to any sites that have those disclaimers, but only to reputable sites (like Jurist) that link to them.

The way I see it, as long as we're not reproducing the material here and linking to material made available on the web, it's not a biggie.

Here is a good link for exam taking advice and also some practice hypos. I haven't looked at the hypos yet, but I assume they are decent.

http://www.lawnerds.com/guide/exam.html


Note from Ken: Paul, my apologies for jumping in on your thread but I the lawnerds.com is quite good and is written by one of my classmates from Boalt/Berkeley, who is now a professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law. It is an excellent resource.

Good stuff PK. Not only does this help your class but the incoming classes as well to know what to expect.

I have been exposed to numerous practice tests, but I find that finding sample answers is infinitely more challenging than simply finding these numerous practice tests. Is there any source besides the E+E's and Emmanuel's where I can get some answers to practice exams?

My school library has some recent exams and model answers for some of the 1L classes. You might inquire there, or even just ask your professor. You never know what you can get by just asking.

BAR/BRI study materials have answer keys. Also, the CALI lessons are good way to test yourself.

Just to piggyback what PK said, you can get barbri first year review books (or pmbr multistate workbooks) for next to nothing online or at used bookstores. I got a pmbr book for $5 and it covers all my classes in depth, teaches you pretty much everything you learn in class, and has plenty of questions at the end of each section. I would definitely pick up a bar review book before I picked up any other commercial material for 1L.

Something I just recently learned. Lexis has a crap load of hornbooks for 1L on the site. That's pretty useful.

Hornbooks (as opposed to study guides, canned briefs etc.) can also be found at your law library. (That's because they are written for practitioners rather than students.)

I have compiled my law school outlines and links to all the free ones I can find on the internet. If your looking for an outline come check and see if I have it:

http://www.danbranum.com

Also if you know where I can get more free outlines to add to the site, just let me know. This is a non-profit website which i have established to share outlines. I have Google ads & a tip jar to pay for the bandwidth required to host my outlines.

Thanks & Good Luck

Dan.

I'm certainly not biased in any way, but you know that you can get to a bunch of outlining and exam prep stuff through Westlaw, right?

Wait, there are people without Westlaw access?! Those poor souls. They must be the "homeless" people keep saying I'll be one day.

Where are these "westlaw" outlines you speak of? I've never seen them, I can't find them, and Westlaw claims they have no such thing. However, Lexis does have lots of outline/exam prep stuff.

If I am missing something, please shed some light :) I could really use the property help.

Okay, they've taken away the dedicated link that used to be up for "Finals Freakout"...my guess is because it's not finals time. It will probably show up again.

In the mean time, I've tried to track down relevant links (some will require signing into WL):
* findlaw's outline and exam bank.
*writing law exams (an essay by John H. Langbein, Sterling Professor of Law, Yale Law School)
* Preparing for Exams

More to come.

There is a list of law school exam links and a good article on taking a law school essay exam at

I am looking for some Torts multiple choice questions and answers. My school does not make old MC questions available to students.

Anyone know a good online source for those? I noticed the New England School of Law in the exam database has a practice multiple choice with answers for Torts, but you need a password to get in.

awesome thread PK!! I've added it to my bookmarks.

Also, anyone else out there ignoring those who say "just relax and enjoy your summer" and instead going full on gunner and following the PLS schedule?

This is the best advice I've had since I found out about TLS. Thank you. I never thought of that.

The above-mentioned Bar Review books have lots of multiple choice questions for Torts and everything else. Haven't seen schools that release MC questions though - they are generally used in multiple years, unlike the essay questions.
