Somewhat helpful. They aren't a comprehensive review of the law. There are tips more like "look for answer choices which inaccurately restate the facts" (with an example question and discussion) or "an answer choice in the form [blah blah] is always incorrect because [X], so don't be fooled." Some of it's really obvious (really, I shouldn't pick the answer that applies the wrong law? thanks!) but some of it is stuff I wouldn't have necessarily thought about, at least not in such a clearly-stated way.
(I've read ConLaw, Contracts, Crim/CrimPro, and Evidence so far and done 10 questions from each subject.)
One thing I don't like is that within a subject, the questions are sometimes separated out into groups. Like in the Contracts section, all the questions dealing with Art. 2 are towards the end of the ~50 questions, so you don't have to think about whether Art 2 applies or not; it's obvious from where you are in the ~50 questions.
(Obviously in the mixed exam sets, the questions will be mixed.)
