LEEWS?

Postby nosorio2007 » Sun Apr 22, 2007 1:46 pm

Does anyone have any experience with this LEEWS. Its substantially cheaper than a law preview course, and i've read on other forums that LEEWS was helpful.

Leews?

A former co-worker of mine who recently graduated law school highly suggested LEEWS. It doesn't seem to be the same waste of time/money as Law Preview.

I called the course and the guy said the class in sf wouldn't start until Nov and by then I probably won't have time to take the classes offered at http://www.leews.com

You don't have to attend the class. You can order the cd's and workbook and do the program on your own time. If you're choosing between LEEWS and Law Preview I would definetely choose LEEWS, although it seems to focus strictly on test taking.

Should one start the LEEWS cd program the summer before law school or while in law school

As I have heard it, it is better to do over the summer before you are bombarded with classes.

LEEWS was very effective for a site reader I am in contact with. He graduated in the top 5% of his class at NYU and did this without much studying and really felt that LEEWS was the cause of his success in large part. LEEWS helps you prepare for law school exams, which are 100% of your grades and most law students do not practice enough for them. In sum, he highly recommended LEEWS.

Tips on how to get in the top 5% without much effort were passed on in the following article:

I would strongly recommend any law student take the LEEWS course at any time. If you are in a city where they don't offer the live course or you want to take the course at a different time, I would suggest the audio tapes. That's what I did. Although maybe they are CDs now. The advantage here is that you can listen to them anytime you want, you can even break it up over several weekends.

Most law school preparation companies out there try to teach incoming students substantive material from classes. This is completely the wrong way to go. You need to learn HOW to succeed in law school, the actual material will be taught to you by your professor. You need to learn how to create outlines, how to study, and most importantly, how to write effective legal exams. That's what LEEWS is all about and I think it's one of the most important things a student can do.

Just my two cents.
Good luck.

I took Leews and I feel ripped off. Your better off seeking out practice exams and writing them for your Professor during the semester. Seek her out during office hours and have her review your work. Only she can tell you if you are on the right track. Forget Leews, save your money. Its lengthy, verbose garbage.

If one were to go through LEEWS and the E&E books over the Summer, would the order in which they were read make much of a difference either way?

LEEWS --> E&E
E&E --> LEEWS

I'd like to develop some sort of pre-law Summer schedule, and I haven't the slightly clue where to start.

Thanks ahead!

Unrelated, so it matters not. The E&E books are supplements which explain the law and principles for a certain course, such as Contracts or Torts. LEEWS is supposed to give you a theory and a framework from which to start in organizing your study time, making an outline, and working exam problems.

Thank you.

I think I'll get LEEWS soon, and then make my way through the E&E books that coincide with my first semester courses. Perhaps I'll toss in an entertaining read or two as well. I've read only One L, to date.

If you're hoping to toss in an entertaining read, a law school prof recommended "A Civil Action". HTH.

3L at a recently demoted to Top 30 program. I took LEEWS and thought it 100% worth it. A lot of 1Ls I know have taken it with great success, though it might be a complete post hoc egro propter hoc situation.

I've heard it suggested to go through it in the Summer, and then again about mid-way through your first semester.

Sound reasonable?

I did Leews over the summer but never went back through it. But, yes, your method is not only reasonable, it is what most people recommend.

I listened to the CDs while I commuted to school. It probably isn't as helpful as actually going through the whole program but I did feel more prepared for finals than a lot of my peers. While speaking with your profs is useful, some of them don't always want to take the time grade full practice exams. I feel it was useful to have another view of exams and testing.

For those of you who have used LEEWS, did you order if off their website, and thus trust it with your credit card information?

Yeah, whether LEEWS is effective is one thing, but Wentworth is a stand-up guy -- the site is legit.
