Possible to do Delaney's How to do ... Exams in 2 days?

Postby madisonian » Mon Nov 22, 2010 7:52 pm

My question is whether anyone out there thinks it is possible to dedicate two whole days to Delaney's How to Do Your Best on Law School Exams, and actually learn something that will make an impact come test time? I have my first exam 2 weeks from now. Thanks everyone.

... or would LEEWS be better? (especially interested in hearing from people that have done both). Thanks.

... is GTM possible in two days? Which is the best to do given the time constraints?

I have all three. I'd suggest doing Delaney and reading the first few chapters of GTM. If you had sufficient time, LEEWS is probably the most effective of the systems.

Thanks! I will probably take your advice. Any particular reason the recommendation, though?

LEEWS is great but it requires too much time investment this late in the semester. The booklet is helpful but you won't get the optimal benefit without listening to the audio component. Getting to Maybe is good but you can get the gist of it by reading the first sixty pages or so, I think. Delaney's book is a pretty short read. Balancing time vs. effectiveness, I think you'll get the most out GTM and Delaney.

Thanks again! I'll let you know how I do. Haha. Almost done with Delaney and read through the first quarter of GTM.
