WHY WE LOVE THIS BOOK: It focuses on the first year, providing many helpful tips for not only surviving, but also coming out on top. This book has a readable, conversational tone. It includes particularly valuable information about outlining, learning from Socratic class discussions, briefing cases and studying for exams. --National Jurist (September 2008)
