And probably a course in taking exams -- not the substantive aspect but the mind game aspect. I'm an admittedly terrible test taker when it comes to nerves and I think that's what got the best of me.
I'm on the road to redemption with Torts and Contracts this semester. Really need some insight on how to work smart and not drop the ball again.
this is going to be dependent on your professors.
feel free to pm, though. i did well in both of those classes.

What did you do to prepare? Knowing that would be a helpful starting point. However, without knowing anything, I'd guess that you probably did not take enough sample tests with model answers. Try that. Or do LEEWs.

Assuming torts is a straight issue spotting race horse, make sure you know the elements of all torts and privileges that the prof teaches. Then practice hypos like nobodies business to get your speed up. First apply the tort, then any privilege secondly. Get all of the points you can for the check list.
