Thoughts / opinions on Open Book: Succeeding on Exams?

Postby hellojd » Mon Aug 05, 2013 3:06 pm

Couldn't find too many people here that had commented on this book, so wanted to see if anyone here had read it and applied it to exams. I'm about to start 1L, and was wondering if it is worth a read.

I already skimmed GTM, and didn't plan on doing any other 1L prep since I've heard it's best to just relax, but NYU just sent out an optional reading list for 0L's and this was on it as suggested (but not required) reading. I figured they wouldn't recommend it to us if it was COMPLETELY useless?

Never hear of it. Read this one instead:

It's cheap, fast, and amazingly awesome.

Cool, thanks for the suggestion. It seems like most people read this the month or so leading up to exams?

I'd read it in the first month or so, then re-read closer to exams.
