Civ Pro Flow Charts

Postby lawhopeful10 » Fri Jun 21, 2013 1:31 pm

I have seen multiple people say civ pro flow charts are very helpful when it comes time for the exam. Is it a good idea to get some from someone before class starts or is everyone's civ pro class so different that making your own is the best way to do it. Any information here would be helpful.
Thanks in advance

My civ pro class was almost entirely theory - we studied 8a, 12b, 26 and 52. That's it. No service, no local rules, no notice, etc. So if your class is more rules-based a flow chart would be helpful. If its theory, not sure it'll help much at all.

Mine was exactly the opposite... we had 50+ rules to memorize & apply, so Scribd FTW

Acing was actually really great. I also liked crunchtime.

Did very well without a flowchart. Just did flash cards, read and highlighted the FRCP, and practiced questions to learn how to apply the rules in complex situations.

Flow charts are a MUST for Erie.

I had a prof that didn't use Byrd, so they were useless to me... frustrating!
