Anyone IN or FINISHED: Ks II w/ Crandall&Whaley 5th Ed.) ?

Postby sethc » Tue Jan 18, 2011 8:06 pm

I know I'll get flamed for this, especially since I got to a low-tier school.. so bring it on, I guess. My question is pretty simple.

I'm in Ks II and, per the thread-title, the prof/we use Crandall & Whaley 5th Ed. and Ks I used the same book last semester, which I have no problem with.. I understand everything just fine so far this semester and the professor ROCKS, it's just the prof HARPS on the "Hypo Problems" (we don't turn them in/get graded) in the book and there's like 8-12 per assignment. Basically, I'm looking for the easy way out here. I could do them myself and I know it's a good idea to do so.. but if anyone has a bunch of these already done, it would cut down on my reading time huge & I'd owe you. I know a lot of school don't use Crandall.. and also I plan on getting the "Casenotes" series when financial aid comes in.. not to use as a crutch or anything - I just have my system & the way I brief lets me grasp the material way better than these problems, but looking like I'm clueless during a cold-call sucks. Come on, be gentle.. when a shortcut in law school actually helps, I'm all about it.

If you can help, I'll do my best to return the favor.

In all seriousness, if your prof is awesome and s/he emphasizes the hypos so much...there's probably a reason s/he does that.

I agree. I read over them & do them diligently, and still would do so if I had other ones to go by.. even though I know that sounds like bullshit. I do a similar technique with outlining - I do my own, but reference past (A & B) student outlines if I need to. The outline part is honestly more helpful with format/how to word & abbreviate more than it is anything else, come to think of it.
