Study aids for first year

Postby williammmc » Mon May 14, 2012 12:47 pm

Hey everyone, I have some pretty well priced study aids and prep materials up on ebay, coming down in about two days. Please check these out. Unfortunately, I can't link you directly to a shop, but search any of these if they interest you. All are great materials and I did pretty well using them as crutches.. I mean.. assistance.

Again, this is the last day and many of the items have not been bid on - these are super helpful study aids, never to early to be prepared.

Only two hours to go, a lot of things have not been bid on - which means they are at their low listing prices.

And to the guy who replied, all first years have about 80% of the same classes as all others - your schedule will not look different by more than one class from the next guy over at the next school. I wish I would have known and bought used stuff for half the price I paid at the time, and I assume there are savvy 0Ls who do buy all of this stuff - its smart if you find it cheap. Also, I don't plan on wasting time for a few hundred bucks at the beginning of my 2L year, so my time for convenience is now, at that point any time spent will cost me more than a couple hundred bucks in the long run.

Thanks for trying to supply advice though, it was almost relevant.

I've had bad experience buying books in advance (new editions, last minute changes, unused supplements) which have made me gunshy iro buying books this far in advance. On thè other hand, I've also managed to sell used books for a good price around the time classes start.
I bought and sold used books online for every class and learned that the sweet spot was beyween just before class started and shortly after

Good luck

Kind of a dead thread, but I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on Kaplan and Princeton Review's study advice programs? Kaplan's doing a free webinar this weekend and I was wondering if it would be worth it?
