What he is describing is what I am expecting, as far as what law school is like. I thought that was what everyone expected when they start law school. Do people really think it will be anything like UG?
So far I haven't come across any actual advice and I am not sure how much more time I am willing to dedicate to reading this monster of a book. His history lessons and other tangents are a bit boring.
ETA: I have continued reading and have come across some advice in the book. Now the question is how much do I really trust this one person to tell me how I should spend hundreds of dollars and countless hours prepping before law school begins.
I've made it through about half of the book, skipping some sections/long, bitter rants along the way. He basically warns against all this horrible stuff to expect in law school, which wouldn't be bad on its own, but then it seems like he thinks we just won't believe him unless he reiterates it a hundred times.
There is some useful information in there, and he makes a lot of suggestions of what to do to prep for law school and the exams themselves, but most of this book is just useless dicta.
In other news, I am about 60 pages into GTM and I am really enjoying it. The forks metaphor they use really seems to make sense to me and it is pretty easy to read through. I definitely suggest this book over PLS, especially for exams. If you want to be scared shitless, then go with PLS.
