Most people on this board go to a school where 80-90% of the class is smart enough to understand the logic of the BLL and how it applies to facts. And even if you don't understand it, you just buy a commercial outline or an E&E and it's pretty much spelled out for you.... Plus, good grades on law exams are about being a little bit relaxed and creative -- not about being extremely focused and disciplined. I just can't see how uppers would help, but to each his own.

I actually think this is something that is sparking most of the disagreement. In the context of law school exams, not really. In advanced physics, sure. There's a relatively low ceiling for a lot of a law school exam. Sometimes there's just not that much to say about Batman's criminal liability for running over a pedestrian on his way to saving the day once you've gone over possible charges, the elements, your analysis of how it fits, and possible policy arguments. I think and know most of my classmates are smart enough to hit that ceiling, which is what makes the curve frustrating. I'm actually pretty annoyed when profs give us "easy" exams, because the curve ends up being overly tight, and distinctions become meaningless.
The whole point is that if you study harder and smarter then you will be able to hit that ceiling, then reasoning and writing ability come into play. Addy can help you utilize your time effectively which will allow you to practice these skills.
