5.0 out of 5 stars very solid supplement May 17, 2006
I bought this outline and also Gilbert's contracts outline, and this one was better in several important ways. One that sticks out in my mind is UCC provision 2-207, which relates to "battle of the forms," which is one of the most difficult topics to master in Contracts. While the surface-level issues may be apparent to everyone, the more subtle implications are not covered well in Gilbert's or in the official comments in the UCC (despite substantial text). If you don't know 2-207 extremely well going into your final, you should be worried at a minimum. Emanuel's treatment of this and most other topics is quite good, and it is consistently better than Gilbert's for Contracts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful December 28, 2003
During my first 6 weeks of Contracts, I believed that my professor was speaking a different language. He had recommended the hornbook of our textbook to us. I have no idea why I thought a hornbook written by the same people who wrote our textbook would be helpful, but I tried to understand Contracts by reading it. It didn't help. This book did. It simplified everything for me and with it, my class notes and my professor's lecture were deciphered. I love this book and I wouldn't part with it for the world.
One of my classmates bought this book as well as the "Examples and Explanations" book on Contracts. She thought this book was much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, this is exactly what you are looking for. January 29, 2005
I have bought many many supplements, but these Emanuel Outlines (and this one in particular) are the best. By the best I don't mean give you the best in-depth understanding of the nuances of the law and how we got to it, but certainly a comprehensive overview of everything you could be tested on.

Using this in conjunction with your casebook will help get you adequately prepared for class and for your exam.

I give this book as strong a recommendation as possible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Non-crunch time Emanuel is better July 10, 2001
During my first year of lawschool, I found many Emanuel guidelines extremely helpful as supplements to readings for class. Crunch Time, Contracts, however, was not as helpful as I anticipated. For the student who goes to class and does the reading, I think it would be a more efficient use of time to purchase the full Emanuel on Contracts, even if it is 5 days before the exam. The Crunch Time is almost too basic to be helpful, or perhaps it is intended for students who are absolutely clueless. Questions at the end of Crunch Time are very helpful, however, in stimulating thought on multiple issues. I recommend not doing these exercises the night before the exam, as I did. I got freaked out. Emanuel's capsule summaries are wonderfully concise, clear, humorous, and helpful. Crunch time summarizes these already summarized summaries, and something gets lost in the translation. Happy studying!

4.0 out of 5 stars Big and Comprehensive October 13, 2005
Just want to clarify how to use the Emanuel Contracts book:

I recommend it as a semester-long guide. This will help you flesh out the varied topics and clarify them as you are reading your casebook. This book recommends reading your casebook first, then referring to the same topics in this volume to ensure you understand the material--this should be done before you encounter the material in class, preferably.

If you're looking for something to pick up midway during the semester or just before finals, I think the Crunchtime series by the same publisher is a better choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars good overview March 5, 2006
I like the Emanuel Outline because it spells out the rules for you and what you need to know. I read the cases, then go back and read the section it relates to - its really helpful for class if you get called on, and for preparing an outline. I have tried 2 other types of study guides - I find I like this format the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Supplement January 7, 2009
I bought this supplement at the beginning of the semester and it really helped me understand contracts, which was very difficult for me. There are in depth outlines throughout the book with good examples of the concepts. It is also a great tool to prepare for finals. There is a concise capsule outline which I read a couple days before my final that breaks down the major concepts, and there are exam tips for each chapter with really good advice on what to look for on the exam. I really recommend this to explain a difficult course.
