TORTS E&E Best Sections

Postby goaheadualright » Wed Dec 05, 2012 3:38 am

What sections have you found most helpful? or not very helpful? I know it could be more of a personal preference depending on what material you're struggling with, but at this point in the year def. not allocating time to the whole book. Any suggestions appreciated!

How about sections are you not familiar with?

Also, if time is an issue you can skip reading the chapters and just do the examples and then based on your performance read the chapter to clarify what you got wrong

Skim and stop on anything that you don't know. Do the questions at the end of each chapter. Review the answers.

The others are right about reading the sections you are not familiar with or are weakest in (though you probably knew that). With my own time limited, beyond reading in my weak areas I actually found, believe it or not, the sections Glannon writes on successful exam taking to be useful, particularly the one about common mistakes he has seen students making. They were pretty obvious mistakes, but there were one or two I could have seen myself making under time pressure and with my Torts exam behind me now I feel pretty good about it and I definitely think E&E helped.

The 3 chapters at the end of the book are helpful if you're not an expert test taker. Glannon talks about expanding on issues and going through the forks (a nice mesh of what GTM and Whitebread talk about).
