With exams just around the corner, a new addition to the library’s collection, Open Book: Succeeding on Exams from the First Day of Law School by Barry Friedman and John C.P. Goldberg, should prove useful.
The book, written by two award-winning professors with a wealth of classroom experience, provides advice derived from years of teaching almost every 1L course. Written in a straightforward, often humorous style, it explains what makes law exams unique and includes numerous detailed examples providing concrete demonstrations of exam-taking techniques.
The book is not just an exam prep book - it also includes guidance on how to get the most out of classes and law school, providing sample outlines, class notes, and case briefs.
