Strategies for tackling supplements

Postby AllDangle » Mon Sep 02, 2013 7:57 pm

A couple of questions re: supps. I am reading them after I read the class material (may switch this up). Should I outline them separately as I go, and use that outline to plug in things missing from my "official" outline? What are some good strategies for approaching supp note taking/reading?

I use supplements to do exactly that - supplement. I fill in gaps in my notes/outlines with supplement information. I also use them for what they are best for, practice questions. I read the supplements first to familiarize myself with the material. Then I read the cases/take notes. When I outline, I use materials from my notes, the cases, and the supplements. I think a separate outline is a waste of valuable time, just include anything you want from the supplement into your notes or main outline.

I took my first look at a supplement this weekend, reading over the materials I've already covered. I thought it helped give me a bigger picture, but I didn't use it to outline or anything like that..

TIme will tell if I stick with this approach but
