Prebuying my Supplements

Postby SemperLegal » Tue May 22, 2012 6:27 pm

Someone offered me a package deal for the Torts E&E, three of the Understanding ___ books, and two Siegel books for $100. Do I need these books and is it worth it?

You'll need some supplements, but whether $100 is a good deal mainly depends on the edition. The newest editions of used books will be worth the most. The older editions can be picked up used for really cheap. You can go on Amazon.com or Half.com and see what these books are selling for and then you can decide if $100 is a good deal.

Beware of buying too many supplements before law school starts. First of all, you will probably only have time to use one (maybe 2) per course. I unfortunately purchased supplements that I never opened my first year.

If I were you, I would just buy the Torts E&E (very helpful) and wait and buy other supplements after school starts. You can ask your prof's if any particular supplements might help with their course. Based on my first year of law school, I am a big fan of the E&Es, Acing___, and the Barbri 1st year outlines (which you'll get free when you sign up with Barbri as a 1L).
