My Torts prof does giant 4-5 page facts for the 3 hour exam instead of splitting them up, and he sent us his past 3 exams. He always does current events, so one is facts around an accident building Trump Tower, the other is about 4 Loco, and last years is about Penn State.


They keep things interesting having real life situations like these. If anybody wants them for practice message me and I will send them your way.

Hey, I'm working on the K exams from the link you posted. Thanks for that!
However, I'm a little upset that I'm losing a lot of issues...

Going to finish my final outline today, feels good man. 16 days and counting.

Would anyone happen to know where I can find some good Torts practice exams? My professor has only given out one, which I don't think is sufficient preparation. We're only covering Negligence and Strict Liability.

Yours truly, LGL, is having an off day. I am pounding through material, no doubt, but I am still feeling apprehensive. I will be finished with the ~200 short answer hypos by Wednesday. I will finish about 4-6 exams per class. For the classes with multiple choice, I am trying to do 100-200 problems per class.

My issue spotting is 75% of the way there. I am getting the major and minor issues quickly.

Think I will be okay? LGL needs encouragement from his bros.

Does anyone besides me have closed book/closed note exams?

I feel like so many of the studying tips don't apply as much to me because I have to memorize so much, blah :(.

Okay yay (well not yay cause this sucks but you know what I mean). So when you are doing practice tests/questions are you doing them from memory? I don't have my outlines memorized yet so I feel like I would be wasting tests...

Edit: yeah all of mine are closed.

I condensed my ~30 page outline into a ~7 page outline. I also have a 1 page checklist with elements. I am typing it over feverishly. So far, I've been able to memorize it pretty well.

Yeah I'm def going to memorize and do the checklist but my question was when you started doing practice exams had you already memorized?

Nah. I had a good idea of the material, but when I started I certainly hadn't memorized it all.
