It is really useful if you have it nearly memorized and just need to go, "Damn what was the name of that case I had under attractive nuissance doctrine, or what was the UCC# for course of dealing in an installment contract." If you think you are going to use it any more than that, you are wrecked.
My best grade was an open-note exam I did w/out an outline.
How long did it take you to adjust to the different style of learning required for law school?
