Also, I agree with this in terms of what is important for prepping for the exam.

1. Case name, page in casebook, jurisdiction, and year
2. A brief summary of the rule in the case (since that's what you need for the exam)
3. Less than a full sentence about the facts (i.e. "woman gets injured in freak train/fireworks accident" for Palsgraff - enough to remind you what it was, not a summary and not to help you ace your cold call)
