YOU have the option to select the depth of coverage for these topics.* Extensive problems and exercises encourage the student to read and apply the actual rule rather than a court's paraphrasing of that rule.* Extensive notes materials supplement the cases and problems.* The overall result = a very teachable book for you, as well as a useful long-term desk reference for your students.

This is a manual that teaches first year law students the ten basic skills they need to know to start learning their first day and ace their first year. The Second Edition has been updated to reflect the best use of technology. It includes a Preface that addresses the Socratic Method and how to beat it.
