Need a good Evidence supplement for the restyled rules

Postby beach_terror » Wed Feb 22, 2012 7:23 pm

Anyone have any recommendations for an Evidence supplement that uses the restyled rules? Closed book exam, so I'm just looking for something general (a la Acing Contracts - but there isn't an Acing for Evidence) to read in my free time.

Not a supplement by any means, but you might want to see if your library has this Evidence textbook yet:

It's our book for class and it's clearer and more helpful than any supplement I've looked at for evidence, plus it's incorporated the restyling.

Yeah my class is actually using this book. I don't really like how they split the rules up all over the spot. It skips around a bit too much for me to feel like I'm grasping the big picture as I go. Thanks though.

I need to buy the E&E Evidence for my summer gig. Is it worth coughing the extra $ for the latest edition which came out last month?

I used the older edition of the E&E. The rules are the same, just slightly differently worded.

Restyled rules will have absolutely no effect on your class since all the material you'll be using reflects the old wording.

Old is E&E is fine, just make sure you know what's changed with the Confrontation Clause.

The seventh edition is fine and you can get it used for about 7.00 at

So the general consensus is that the E&E is the best supp for Evidence??

I used it this past spring with the new, restyled Rules, and got an A. Take that for what you will.

Thanks for the input. I just ordered the 7th Edition version for $10 bucks shipped. I have a condensed Summer course and really need to pack it all in.
