This book starts out with introduction about subjects any first year law student will take. There's always that core 6-7 classes. He gives summary about each one. I think I might already like tort, and I'm not even in law school yet. I'm dreading the writing class, so I'm taking a summer class at a local community college just to get in more practice. I never did get that hang of writing technical things. And I couldn't get more technical than writing things while in law school. Right?
I like what he said about classes. I like the hints and clues. The Top Five Habits of Successful Students he listed in chapter 10 is especially eye-opening for me.
C.R.E.D.O. Meaning consistent, rigorous, efficient, deligent, organized
I just have to make sure to be even more organized than I am now. I hope to consult this book when I start law school. For now, I'm enjoying the birds-eye view of it. There's a whole chapter on note-taking, briefing a case, exam-taking and more. This guy knows what he's talking about. He's only been teaching tort for a long time. How helpful is this book? I'll know for sure when I'm there.
