Have not started practice tests but have completed outlines (just need a little cleaning up), done with reading for semester, and have done all supplement reading except for Ks. First final is a week from Tuesday and I kind of feel nervous. Not due to a perceived lack of preparation but due to the fact that everyone in my small section seems more intelligent than me. Haaaalp :(

I think the E&E made it less difficult for me. Thanks for the flowchart indication too.
And Jsa725, thank you for your explanation! I just sent you a PM.


If your professor is like mine, in that your Ks class is really just sales/UCC, then there is an E&E on Sales/Leases that is phenomenal. Obviously Leases (2-A) would not apply, but the rest of the stuff is golden.

Brothas - the time is almost here, the stress is rising, but I CSWS.

Torts - whothefuckeverknows

Contracts - I am feeling ok about it, except that my professor uses a strict grading checklist (It is how he has never before had to implement a curve) and so it concerns me that no matter how hard I study if I miss one sentence I will get docked points.

Criminal Law - Feel great about it.

Let's keep that grinding going, everyone in this fucking thread should hit ~80 hours at least this week. NO EXCUSES. NO REGRETS. CSWS!

My laid back personality is getting the best of me...I'm doing my work and all, but not stressing anywhere near what I'm seeing from others.

I finally feel like I'm comfortable with all of my professors exam styles and questions (and what they expect), which is a good feeling. Now it's all about memorizing my outlines and learning the law as best I can (and taking more PT's, obviously).

Went to each of my professors today. Found out what they like. I feel good.

My 1-page checklist is baller Really helps issue spotting.

Keep up the pace, boys.

I was wondering this too. It really does not seem like people in my section are gunning.

I've also wondered if the people in my section are secretly gunning. I hope they aren't.

People probably work harder than they let on, but I think the typical student (at least from what I've seen at my school) is not gunning that hard.

I only think a few people, outside of the three who I do practice tests with, have really even started to take practice final exams.

Hah yeah, same for me. I'm generally open with people when we're discussing what we're doing/studying/whatever, but I obviously don't really know what a lot of people are secretly doing. Then again, I overheard a few people complaining like 2 weeks ago how it was still taking ~3 hours a night just to do their reading. You'd think by that point people would learn how to save time, guess not... :|
