I recommend not bothering until Halloween. Just do your assignments, take good notes, and spend your extra time watching football and enjoying beverages.

If you don't open a hornbook at the exactly-correct-precise time, you're doomed for median.

Good luck!

I find Chirelstein to be both my least useful and most enjoyable supp so far. He covers in 23 words the first 3 weeks of our class.

Also I feel like I need to read that one because that's the one my teacher recommended.

Glannon Torts, Civ Prop E&E, and freer's treatise on civ pro (which is easily the most helpful, but he teaches at my school and my prof co-authored the book with him)

Makes sense. How's Glannon? I need a supplement because I feel like I may be missing stuff. Prof. recommended just looking up stuff in Prosser in the lib but I want something I can take home. Might consider getting the E&E.

Also they don't really have hornbooks or supplements for Regulatory State, so that sucks.

It can't hurt to crack open a hornbook now if you want to get some more insight into what you have learned so far. I definitely wouldn't start reading any supplement cover to cover at this point. For example, after covering intentional torts, I found it helpful to read the E&E sections, and consult a hornbook such as Prosser in order to reinforce the subject a bit.
