Getting to maybe.
Read Glannon's E and E on Civ Pro. If really ambitious Farnsworth on Contracts (a hornbook).
Everything else don't bother. Many professors teach law that dirrectly conflicts with supplements or take a vastly different approach altogether. Also many supplements are just fucking wrong. I've been going through them with a red pen for all of finals period fixing the mistakes that I got charged $35to read.
anyone else have books to suggest? im down to do some more reading..
Understanding Torts (the LexisNexis series) was really good, and Torts is systematic enough that you can really just learn it all from the book and do great on the exam (as long as you pay attention to your prof's quirks to prepare for the policy essay).
Although, it's really not necessary to start prepping now.
