Alright, I think it's now clear: I'm gonna need a contracts supplement. TLS is split on this question, so what do you guys think: what's the best K supplement out there?

Prof recommends Farnsworth and Calamari. I'll check those out of course but I get the impression they're more treatises than concise overviews of the material (and not sure if they have practice problems). Thoughts?

I used Chirelstein for a bit. It was okay. My professor was bonkers, so it didn't really help. But I think it was overall solid.

Chirelstein is great, but you should probably get what your prof recommends.

Chirelstein, and Chirelstein alone, taught me enough to get an A- from Richard Epstein, who taught me (and the rest of the class) very close to nothing about contracts, then proceeded to test us solely on our knowledge of contracts. I give it two and a half thumbs up.

It's striking that everyone chimed in with the same recommendation. Good stuff. Thanks a bunch.

Chirelstein is great. Its short and concise and helps clear up any confusing topics. Only downside I didn't like was that it did not include any hypos like the e&e's

I used Chirelstein. Didn't find it particularly useful though. He did a pretty good job of clearing up the BLL, but it wasn't anything earth shattering.

Chirelstein is a good overview of Ks, but it isn't very nuanced and I doubt it covers everything you do in class.

-guy who got a bad Ks grade.

Is the Glannon Guide to Civil Procedure preferred over Glannon's Examples and Explanations?
