I really hope that question is not a sample from the FYLSE. I must have missed a few subjects in law school...

Don't worry - this is a sample question in an exam for a dentist.

Yeah, Conviser owns. Forget about Kaplan or Themis.

Plenty of condensed options out there (mine included), which are more suitable for practice and memorization.

Is there anything people would recommend for people just needing to learn the law for the CA essays? Taking the attorney exam, got an essay writing workbook, but hoping there is something that covers just the black letter law for the 17 CA exam portions. Guessing Barbri mini conviser is more geared toward the MBE?

Smart Bar Prep is good if you want a clear, one page Doc that you can use on your computer and can easily be used on your phone.

It's about 250 pages, is in clear outline form (one page) and they tell you how commonly tested each rule is, including which essays those rules appeared on.

What is going on with the website?
Appears as if changes to the site were skewed and messed up.

Today the exam results page has been entirely cleared, as they typically do the week before the exam results are released.

The difference though is that no email has been sent about this, and Feb 2020 exam materials / essays were supposed to be available until July 31.

It's all very suspicious.
