How to get the most out of the E&E's?

Postby Kobe_Teeth » Thu Sep 09, 2010 10:42 am

How do you get the most out of the E&E's? I read the sections we cover in class and for the most part the "textbook" part (what I call it) is pretty straightforward and doesn't offer up much new or too enlightening. I mean, its only the first few weeks so I guess this is to be expected. Its clarified some things in CivPro, solidified some things in torts and, well I read a different supplement suggested for my Property class.

So, the questions then, what do you do with them? Do you write the answer out? Do you do it in your head? Do you you use it as a small sliver of a practice exam?

The thing I don't like so far with the E&E's is they seem to give definitive answers, which makes sense for their purpose but I'm concerned they aren't going to help me learn that enigmatic art of legal thinking.

So, my fellow L's 1 through 3, how do you use these books?

You can use the questions at the end, particularly the tricky ones, to apply LEEWS or GTM.
