I received a code for free supplement from Aspen. What shalt I get?! I am taking Ks/Crim/Con this semester and I already have the K's E&E, Dressler, and Chemerinsky. Should I pick up a Crunchtime? Any suggestions on which one may be most helpful?


K's: Farnsworth.
Criminal: Dressler.
Con: Chereminsky.

E&Es are good for hypos for legal reasoning. Develop this skill.


I second Farnsworth. I credit my A in Ks to him. RIP.


Which Farnsworth book are we talking about here? Link me!

I LOVE CSWS GRIND MODE :D oh, and spring break... CSWS'n like a bat outta hell. I plan on starting my issue specific attack sheets and tuning my O/L's by synthesizing my notes for a more cohesive and flowing read. Supplement work will be flowing as well.


Hell yes. Just told my folks to get a bulk pack of Monster for spring "break".

Oh, and I actually ordered the LetsGoLAW shirt...funny thing is, CustomInk said it's supposed to arrive 03/01/2013, which is exactly when I officially commence BEAST MODE. Perfect timing, lol. :P

I did well in Ks, so if anyone wants a Word doc of my sample answers, don't hesitate to send me a PM.

I open up my calendar app. 10 weeks till finals. I stare back at my phone. I respond with a simple "No."

Moments like these make the difference. CSWS is a slow, steady battle. Do your time now. It will pay off.

4 hours left... 4 hours left...

Edit: See this? Before and after. Before finals: CSWS. After finals: PROFIT.

I hope you don't attend BC...that is some king of the curve material right there... :D GL.
