I know some may or may not be helpful depending on the individual professor, but a few (Chemerinsky's con law supplement, for example...I think Glannon for civ procedure, too?) seem to be specifically mentioned in all the 1L success threads. I'm not planning on actually reading them prior to starting school, but I figured I'd check Amazon periodically to see if any of them showed up for cheap.
Anyway, is this http://www.amazon.com/Constitutional-Law-Principles-Policies-Treatise/dp/0735598975 the Chemerinsky supplement everyone mentions? Because this shit is like 900 pages. Just doesn't seem like a "supplement" so much as a regular textbook, but maybe I'm doing it wrong.
You're doing it right. It's just incredibly long. (You shouldn't need to read remotely the whole thing; most Con Law classes don't cover everything. Mine didn't address First Amendment because there was a separate First Amendment course. Some people's classes don't go over personal liberties. Etc.)
