I purchased this book to help me with my Civil Procedures course. I am a first year law student, and I am in an evening program. I work a regular job in Retail Bank Management, and juggle school, hobbies, and family, so my time is precious to me. I don't have time to spend sorting through supplements and slogging through information that seems to carry me further and further from understanding what I need to 1) have good input in class discussions, 2) not make a fool out of myself when called on randomly to discuss cases, and 3) do well on my exams.

This supplement has been an incredible resource for me. As the first six weeks of class slipped by, I found myself feeling a little lost in Civil Procedures. Two weeks before the midterm I was floundering. I had briefed every assigned case, outlined course reading, and worked problems that our class tutor posted on TWEN. I was still slightly confused. Then I bought this book. Without doing all of the work, this would have never been useful to me. So please don't think that this supplement will be your "cliff's notes" for Civil Procedure. However, if you just need extra help, Glannon delivers like gang-busters. This book is well organized, easy to follow (once you have done your homework), and most of all it is effective. Having just taken the mid-term, I have nothing but rave reviews for how this book enhanced my preparation for that exam.

Overall, I highly recommend this book.

I had every E+E last year and Glannon's Civ Pro was by far the best. The book does an excellent job of covering most of the first semester stuff like jurisdiction and the erie doctrine. Though it wasn't as useful second semester, it was worth it for the first semester material alone.

Format: Paperback
This E&E is an excellent resource - it breaks down topics that can easily be daunting into manageable sections, and by the time you're finished with a chapter, the doctrine/rules make perfect sense. For a civil procedure course, going through these types of examples is probably your best bet in getting the rules to stick in your mind.
I would recommend spending the money on this book solely for the chapters on joinder, which are exceptionally well written.

Format: Paperback
This is by far the best civil procedure supplement sold. The book sheds ample light on one of the most confusing law school subjects. Glannon takes the reader through a number of hypothetical scenarios, often based on real cases, then tweaks each hypothetical slightly to help the student understand the subtle changes that affect the law.

If your exam is open-book, I would recommend flagging some charts out of this book - particularly the charts on judgment as a matter of law and summary judgment. These legal standards are difficult to grasp, and the charts are simple and concrete.

I am surprised by the extensive positive reviews that this book has received on Amazon. I suppose they must be due to the very limited number of Civil Procedure study resources and that people are glad to have any help they can get, even if that help is grossly lacking. 1L students - I don't know what to tell you. Maybe check out the Freer book: Civil Procedure 2nd (second) edition Text Only. I haven't read it but I know that books in that series at least includes a table of cases. A step up from this mess.

OUT OF DATE: Do not heed the 5 star reviews from 2009: this 6th edition was last updated in 2008--FOUR years ago--since which time the world of civil procedure has changed significantly. For example, the discussion of Erie is incomplete: the important 2010 decision Shady Grove is missing, giving readers a false sense of completeness of the analysis. And where is Ashcroft v. Iqbal? Not in this book. These cases, and other important ones, happened after the last update FOUR years ago. Inexcusable given this book's market share.

POORLY ORGANIZED: A table of cases is not only helpful but a must for any study aid. Students want to be able to look up the cases they have read and pull out additional facts and analysis for their outlines. Don't expect to do that with this book. Instead, you will have to wade through a mediocre, poorly formatted index, filled with lots of confusing cross-references and whacky or misleading section titles. Editors, look to your competition and add a table of cases to the 7th edition.

Poor organization also sneaks into the general writing: the author can go pages without making significant reference to cases in footnote.

This book is a MUST have. The questions are great and the content is very easy to understand. I made an A+ in Civ Pro thanks to this E&E!

I seldom used supplements for my 1L courses, not generally finding them particularly helpful or necessary, but this E&E was definitely an exception. It does a great job of "laying the foundation" for understanding the federal rules. The joinder section is particularly good; diagrams and examples do wonders to clear up rules that initially seemed like a bit of a mess.

I am a 2L at a law school that splits civil procedure and jurisdiction. I just opened this back up for my jurisdiction class and it does a great job of summarizing the basics of that as well. Highly recommend it.
