Holden-Smith (saw someone mentioned closed book MC earlier. Whole exam like that?)
WAY too early for you to worry about exams. The structure of the exam shouldn't affect the way you study during the semester or even the way you outline your classes, imo. When exams draw closer, ask your CLSA/affinity group mentor about this stuff. Trust me, forgetting about exams for now best piece of advice you've gotten on this forum.
What? You are a 1L, how would you know what we should be doing?
How can it hurt to know the format of the exam?
Can anyone also clarify on the exam format (multiple choice or essay or a mix of both) for these professors?
I couldn't find a previous exam on the Cornell database for Herstein or Hillman (for Contracts part I).
Okay. I'm a 2L and I echo Lincoln's advise 100% (your class year does not dictate your capacity to give good advice). Now is the time to be adjusting to legal education, not to be worrying about finals. Wait till after the practice exam to worry about finals (or just never worry about it and learn instead).
Regarding the exam format, I only know the format for a couple of the professors listed. Barring changes from last year:
Holden-Smith: Closed-book MC + Essay
Herstein: Long Fact Pattern Issue Spotter, Single issue applied to set of facts, and theory essay.
