The best answer is E, none of the above. Trying to learn the law before law school is widely viewed as pointless and in fact may confuse you more, because you'll have to relearn everything when you actually get to class. The best thing you can do before you get to school is relax, because you won't have an opportunity to do it again for quite a while. Maybe read Getting to Maybe, but that's it.

Read Getting to Maybe. It wasn't helpful as a 0L. You have no context for understanding the advice given in any of these courses or materials.

0L prep should consist of doing something fun and interesting before you have to buckle down and read/write for the rest of your natural born life.
