Best Property Supplements
Property (Examples and Explanations)
If you buy only one property supplement, then this is the one! Property (Examples and Explanations) by Professors Burke and Snoe is the gold standard of property supplements. In fact, I don’t know if I could have aced my property exam without it.
Here are three reasons why the Property E&E is the best property supplement.
First, it breaks down extremely difficult property concepts (like easements and covenants) into easy to digest, bite size pieces. Trust me, this is crucial for acing your property exam!
Second, the hypotheticals at the end of each chapter help sharpen your legal reasoning skills and solidify key legal concepts.
Third, it’s so well-written and effective that you can practically forego reading your casebook. This truly makes the Property E&E the all-around best property supplement.
Questions & Answers: Property
Practice makes perfect. And thanks to the Property Q&A supplement, you’ll get all of the practice you need (and then some) to ace your property exam.
Written by Notre Dame Law School Professor John Nagle, the Property Q&A features 170 multiple-choice and short-answer questions, as well as a 50-question “practice exam.”
Not only will each question test your substantive knowledge throughout the semester, each answer will help crystallize why you chose the right (or wrong) answer.
In short, this supplement will help you crush your 1L property exam.
The Property CrunchTime supplement is essential for acing your 1L property class. This supplement, written by attorney and Harvard Law grad Steven Emanuel, will be your constant companion during 1L property exam prep.
Here’s what you’ll love about the Property CrunchTime supplement.
First, the Capsule Summary helps you quickly review key concepts. Think of it as the property outline you wish you would have made throughout the semester.
Second, the Exam Tips are on-point and definitely worth the price of admission. Want to know what your property professor is looking for? The Exam Tips got your back.
Third, the short answer and essays questions are great for getting you exam-ready. You won’t ace your property exam without practicing hypos. And the Property CrunchTime supplement has them in spades!
How To Use The Best Property Supplements
Here’s how you can use the best property supplements to “hack” law school and ace your exam!
Throughout the semester, read the relevant section of the E&E supplement before class, outline the applicable law and policy, practice the hypos, and make note of your professor’s nuances. This will help you create the actionable property outline you need to ace your property exam.
Then, as the semester progresses, use the Q&A and CrunchTime supplements to fill in any gaps in your knowledge and to prepare for your property final.
