I am having a hard time with this. :roll:
I think you can have doctrinal stuff pre-written for CC/DP/EP analysis. I would do the analytical framework for the basic doctrine questions, and then reserve a sentence for each exception. You can mix and match from there.

had nothing "prewritten" it was actually a close book exam, but by the time I got to the exam I had a mental checklist of things I knew I would have to mention. For example I knew there was going to be a DP Q, so I knew my first three sentences were gonna be about the 5th or 14th amendment, something about enumerated or not, and some other basic things that I dont remember but that would basically be impossible for me not to be able to relate and connect to the Q

This only happened bc after doing X amount of practice tests I picked up on patterns and points I could score every time

First final Tuesday. 2 days off, con law final. 2 days off, property final. 2 days off, crim final. Assuming I give 2 days to study exclusively for my first final, that means tomorrow is my last "general" study day. Gotta make the most of it...

Yeah man, told you he was great :mrgreen:

I'm tempted to not do the rest of the readings (Complicity, or w/e) and just OL from Dressler for that section instead. Thoughts?

I feel like I could have skipped class all semester and been just fine.

My prof taught straight Dressler. He didn't even have a real textbook, just Dressler and a course packet. He did a website for the class which basically summarizes dressler's take on the areas we covered.

If you can view that, then enjoy. Its gold.

I'm pretty sure I'm not going anymore. I don't think he's going to be giving out all the answers to the exam in the remaining 3 classes

Might not be a bad idea. That said, complicity and conspiracy are like the only things with any semblance of nuance in Crim, from what I can tell.

It is (obviously) your call as to if you think it'll be worth it.

Seriously? What are you waiting for?

Now there's a charge.
Just kidding ... it's still FREE!
