I read the casebook but not the supplement. I use the supplement to clarify reinforce inky as needed.

I don't read for LWRAP, but read pretty much everything for the other classes. Civ Pro I read a combo of casebook and hornbook

No, I meant to indicate that this option was reading everything assigned, plus additional material not assigned

The flaw in your poll then, is their is no option to read 100% without reading supplements.

I have supplements but they are actually easier to read than the casebook. Usually just background/policy stuff which reads like a romance novel compare to the casebook :D

So far I've read everything assigned.

I'm almost certain that that's the point.

Not always though depending on the background knowledge and professor preference. I'd probably find historical or econ stuff a bit denser than cases.

Reading everything is great as long as I have the time. I remember cases/points much better if I actually read the whole opinion.

Do all of them, then read the supplements as needed. Do I read them in great detail? No. I pretty much fast-read them, slow down and focus on the holding and the most important reasons for the holding.
