Format: Paperback
I had access to a ridiculous array of resources in studying for Crim Pro--3 commercial outlines, 3 books of practice questions, a book of case briefs, and Emanuel's "Law in a Flash" cards, and tried all of them at least once. This review compares them all. NOTE: Whatever supplement you buy, try to GET A NEW(ish) EDITION--this is a rapidly evolving area of law with several cases in the last 2-5 years (and many in the last 2) that turned established doctrines on their heads.

E&E: I don't really like the narrative style/paragraph structure of E&E--it's hard to just pick up in the middle and grasp a narrow issue; hard to find stuff; and provides too little in the way of the facts of each case. Practice questions are fairly targeted, ie, you know what concept they are testing and you get several fact patterns to try your hand at. This may be good for initially grasping something you're struggling with, but very few real exam questions are written so narrowly--most mix in several issues. And Crim Pro is not an area of the law like Evidence or Property where there are very complex concepts that you would really need these targeted-type questions to understand/gain practice. The sticking point with Crim Pro is more that there are A LOT of fairly straightforward concepts you have to learn and understand as part of a system.

OTHER OUTLINES

Emanuel's was BY FAR the best of the commercial outlines I used--it was the one I kept coming back to. The Emanuel's outline was very well-organized, which allowed me to engage each topic in the depth that I needed for my course.

Doesn't go into nearly as much depth as the Glannon books. It's quite short and cursory. The only examples I found useful are the ones to distinguish reasonable suspicion from probable cause.

Format: Paperback
Title says it all. The Fifth Edition was out of date when I took Crim Pro last year, and it's even more out of date now. The depth of treatment is perfect if you simply want to learn a little about criminal procedure, but completely inadequate for a course that requires you to know the differences between different types of vehicle searches, precise rules about interrogations, etc.

I used this for the bar exam. It closely tracks my bar prep course, but is more in depth. Makes up for not taking crim pro in law school.

By far my favorite 1L E&E. The last chapter includes an issue spotter checklist and model exam questions that justify the purchase price of the book.

I have numerous Examples and Explanations books on various topics, and think they are all pretty helpful come exam time. I don't know if was the book or the teacher, but E&E Criminal Procedure wasn't quite as in-depth as I needed it to be. It helped explain some of the more complex topics, but it still left me confused as to some. Further - and this goes for all E&E Books - the way the index is organized is very irritating. You have to know exactly what you're looking for and what topic E&E decided to pair it with in order to locate it (everything is a subtopic of something else). I would prefer everything to just be in alphabetical order, regardless of the main topic, for easier locating. Despite everything I've said, I would recommend this book for someone taking a beginner Criminal Procedure class.

Took criminal procedure as a 3L. My instructor's book was terrible. I read the first 2 of 9 chapters, and then I stopped reading (but I still paid attention in class). 60 hours before the exam, I went into cram mode. I used the first 24 hours to read this E&E book, which gave a great overview of all the concepts, rules, and exceptions. Its examples were very useful (as useful as the explanations). After that, I spent the rest of the time reviewing outlines that I gathered from other people.
I don't know if I'm going to make an A, but as a 3L, I think I earned at least a solid B (good enough for 3L's) in large part thanks to this book.
