For Gilbert's Property and Understanding Crim Law- Dressler, can I use older versions? I have these from a few years ago and would rather not buy new versions if they are close enough to being the same.

Belated bump because I think this could help a lot of people with their finals. I've used some of the texts OP talks about and found his ratings pretty accurate.

My professor just recommended Epsteins supplement for Torts, unfortunately it is 740 pages and the exam is 10 days away and it is 56$ that I don't have. Does anyone know of a supplement that is comparable in tort focus? My professor just stressed how we should know Torts accruing to him or Epstein. I haven't been paying enough attention in class (like now) so I was just wondering if anyone knew if one of the supplements had the same overall theory or views as Epstein but in more of an abbreviated version?

Not sure this is at all responsive, but we use the Epstein casebook (not supplement) and the Abraham supplement. It's slim and pretty decent?

Like I said, maybe not at all what you were looking for, but thought I'd chime in.

first of all, im sorry youre immature.

second of all, that wasn't irrelevant. i suggested an alternative to that chunk of ink and paper your professor recommended to you. one vastly shorter and likely to be more effective to your end. professors always recommend way too overwrought supplements for the most part.

Thanks that is helpful! Luckily I found a great outline from a student who had my professor so I think I am going to use that and then supplement with the one he suggested if I don't understand something (my school has a used bookstore thing where I grabbed one for 10$ today). My professor is EXTREMELY into the economics side of Torts and I hear that is what most of his MCs are on.
