You don't refer to an outline all that often during an exam anyway. Just tab your cases, and highlight the rules in each case you covered, and presto you effectively have your outline in its semi-raw form.

You can sticky the casebook and write notes in the margins. If your prof places a heavy emphasis on the MPC just tab all the sections you actually covered in class. (assuming the MPC is in the back of your textbook) You most likely will not need to refer to specific cases on your final, so just know the BLL and policy principals before the test and only use your casebook if you get desperate. I'm assuming your a 1l. I ended up using my outlines way less than I thought I would during my exams.

use post-its on key pages. But for the most part? Its a closed book final IMHO. Do not waste any time gazing at that damn book, unless you REALLY get lost. Case books are just boomer sophistry for the most part, so unless the text actually spells out the BLL in charts or something, forget all pretenses you have on using this approach.
