Acing Contracts vs. Chirelstein

Postby UghNonAmus » Tue Nov 21, 2017 5:13 pm

So, I know basically nothing about contracts. Laptops allowed, boring lectures, early in the morning, general laziness. It seems that I am not the only one who has to self-teach contracts, and these seem to be the top two recommended supplements for doing so.

Which one should I read first? I'm leaning towards Acing, but open to suggestions as to efficacy or redundancy.

Chirelstein is worth one close read for a general overview of the course, but it won't provide you with the analytical framework that you need to attack your exam.

I thought the E&E was pretty good. It was missing a few areas we covered in my course it touched on about 85% of it.

I have the same problem, looking for some suggestions. Maybe we're in the same class lol.
I think I'm gonna go with Acing since it's better for exams with the checklists and the rest of the stuff.
Open to hearing if there's a better supplement though.
