With a thirty-year interest in law teaching, learning and exams and as the author of a book on such exams that I periodically revise, How To Do Your Best On Law School Exams, I try to read new books on such exams to deepen my understanding. Most of them, however, are either altogether forgettable or mostly forgettable.

But Professor Suzanne Darrow Kleinhaus' recent book, Mastering the Law School Exam, is a very valuable contribution that can help students to get on the legal frequencies required for the first-year law exams. While the book is strong overall, two chapters stand out. The materials on multiple-choice questions in Chapter Five provide unusually clear, useful and step-by-step instructions for learning this type of question that may be increasingly used by professors on their exams.

Chapter Eight, "An Exam Make-Over," is an original and simply remarkable contribution. From all her experience in aiding students, she has managed to get inside the minds of students who are struggling with the very different law exams. This Chapter exemplifies brilliance, insight, and caring, a trinity of accomplishment. While it is explicitly designed for law students whose initial grades do not reflect their effort, I suggest it could benefit any first-year student. For example, its striking and exhaustive listing and explanation of common student mistakes in thinking about and writing exams could aid students before they take them, not just after disappointing results.

I recommend it highly: it is a star in a mostly bleak sky.

This book is truly a must have for every law student! Prof. Kleinhaus is fabulous as a professor, but the book is the next best thing to being in her class! I highly recommend it - the fact patterns and answers are so helpful in preparing for finals!!

What can I say - Good law book. Required reading by several law schools, including Southern Law School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

If you are in law school, you MUST read this book at least twice, in the beginning of your first semester and after you have your first final or mid-term grades. You will have to compare three things: 1. your own ideas how to approach your law school studies; 2. what this book recommends you; and 3. what your final grades are. If you final grades are not satisfactory - re-read this book.
Trust me. The law school teaching methods are very different. Do not waste your valuable time complaining that professors do not explain things to you. It is not their goal in most cases. You must find out how to extract information from your professor's questions. This book will teach you how. Good luck!
