E&E is more like a full explanation with the history, why it exists, etc. Glannon Guide is more like a "here it is and here is what it means."

I have both. Both are very useful.

same info in both? [in terms of contradictions]

I was told he said on the first day not to get the glannon guide, but I never heard that and so I thought maybe this person just misunderstood, since he specifically recommends the e&e and they're both glannon

The E&E is useful for understanding the rules and getting a good overview of everything. The Guide is much more useful for exam prep and as a quick reference. Plus, the multiple guess questions are good prep.

It's basically the same info, but the Guide is more distilled.

I would own both. In fact, I do own both.

profs recommend supps for many other reasons than whether they're actually useful, such as whether it's theoretical enough for them, written by a buddy, or god knows what. plus a lot of profs actually think people learn from things like the socratic method and lectures, and some tell you supps will rot your mind. a few profs appear to even choose casebooks based on whether they can tear it apart to make themselves look smart in class

i highly doubt that GG and EE contradict each other. they're both universally recommended

yeah so I just emailed him to make my life easier and he said he recommends it for questions and answers but not for learning the law. I wanted it for the questions, so..yay.

Awesome. I have both too. I guess after my K exam, I'm going to alternate between the two and read my outline occasionally.

which subject?
Torts- only E&E.
Civ Pro- BOTH. For the love of god, BOTH.

For prep, I'm finding Crunchtime to be more useful than the Glannon Guides. However, I think the Glannon Guide has an edge for multiple choice preparation.

I was fortunate enough to have Glannon of the Glannon Guide fame as my Torts prof., so there it was obviously a advantage to use GG over E&E. But I did also use the E&E, which I think was helpful as the GG is a little quirkier, if that makes sense.

I also used the GG for Commercial Paper/Payment Systems and got an easy A, I feel like I'm not adding much to the discussion, but basically it depends on your learning style.

What kind of class are we talking about here?

I'm finding that broad treatises are working unbelievably well for me, at least in contracts and property.

I have Understanding Property by Sprankling and Farnsworth on Contracts. I have the Gilbert's and the E&E in Property and for Contracts, I have Emmanuel and Chirelstein, and you can glean useful information from all of these. But the treatises have been like a godsend in polishing up the details that I still didn't understand and helping me to see the big picture.

If you ask me, there's nothing that the commercial outlines or E&Es cover that can't be read about more clearly in a treatise -- except the Q&A parts of the E&Es are pretty valuable for practice in application.

And I have to echo what others have said...the E&E for Torts is by far the best.
