I have no laptops in 1 doctrinal class this semester, and tbh its not as bad as I thought, but its also because I really like the professor. I think that makes all the difference.

so, my con law book is absolute hell to read. i have the E&E, but would the treatise book be worth getting? (and really, is it possible to skip reading the text if get the treatise, cause i don't have time to read three things for con law...)

edited to say we're not using the chemerinsky textbook.

Chemerinsky better be my Freer this semester. A good supp in any class is TCR. Civ Pro reading was probably not even worth doing in retrospect.

I'm too scared of our prof bro. No chance I'm letting her call on me when I haven't read the case. For test prep, your way is probably much better.
