If not, then buy whatever you can that is most useful and use the library's books as needed.
ClosetNerd
The examples and explanations are clear and concise, and the hypos are extremely helpful in analyzing the issues, such as jurisdiction or service.
DC Reader
The book gives much clearer answers than many in the "Glannon Guide to" series, and it was very helpful in preparing for my exams.

This book is extremely useful for two purposes. First, it has great multiple choice questions with 1-5 line answers for each hypo, to help prepare for multiple choice exams. Second, Glannon works his way through Civ Pro curriculum by asking a paragraph or two question about every other page. The format helps solidify the trickier parts of the material in your mind through use of easy analysis. The four answer choices are worded in a way that allows you to analyze using typical reasoning patterns. This helps you see your mistakes and conceptualize correctly through a quick analytical process.

If other supplements are better suited to your learning style, you can use the questions as quick quizzes while outlining and preparing for exams. An added BONUS is that you can also use these as short hypos to write out a longer, more in-depth answer to prep for the exam.

I used various supplements for this class. Before buying all of them (like I did) I would go to your law library and look them over, use them for your class and see if they are presented in a way that works for you. If not, then buy whatever you can that is most useful and use the library's books as needed. My biggest mistake was thinking by using supplements to supplement my casebook I would learn less or get screwed up. Professors tell you whether they like supplements or not, but if you use them to prepare for class, still at least go through the cases and take NOTES from what they say, you will do far better.

I will explain the books I used second semester, which is less theory and rules based. Before each class topic I read

Too many supplements seem to be all questions and answers, which is fine if you understood everything the first time you read the textbook, but not much help if you still had questions. This book explains a lot about civil procedure, section by section, a little at a time, and then allows you to check if you understood correctly, and then explains a little more, so you can learn or relearn if necessary. And the questions are not as absurd or trivial as the questions in some of the other supplements.

Very readable and clear.

I just wanted to second another reviewer: this book is great, but it needs to be updated. We're only a little over a month into our Civ Pro class, and we've seen a few examples of how the book is out of date. The clearest example is Hertz Corp. v. Friend, where the Supreme Court established that the "nerve center" test is the test to use for purposes of determining corporate citizenship for diversity jurisdiction. This section of the book is still predicated on the confusion which reigned prior to the Hertz decision.

If you're using this book right now, read it with a critical eye, keeping in mind that it isn't always based on the latest law.

I am horrible at multiple choice and this helped me exponentially.Also worth noting I had Glannon himself for this class. This is the only 'Glannon Guide' I can really recommend, I think it is first rate..especially if you are a Glannon student.

Format: Paperback
Professor Glannon somehow manages to make some of the most boring concepts in civil procedure bearable. His writing style is clear & succinct - but be careful getting this book since it was published in 2008 and wayyy outdated in some topics (PLEADING & JURISDICTION i'm lookin at you). Hopefully a new edition will be published soon!

The book gives much clearer answers than many in the "Glannon Guide to" series, and it was very helpful in preparing for my exams. I don't think it would have helped much throughout the year, but it was a really good end-of-semester recap that also helped me identify any weak spots that I had in the material. Highly recommended.

Used this for my Civil Procedure: Jurisdiction (aka "Civ Pro 2") class and found it to be pretty helpful. Glannon's E&E was probably better suited for the Civil Procedure class that's typically taught to first semester 1L classes, but this one helped me keep up decently well in Civ Pro 2. The only downside I can think of is that while it's no substitute for skipping casebook reading, I was still forced to pay close attention to my professor's take on Erie Doctrine.

The best supplement out there for CivPro. Clear, and goes to the right level of detail. Particularly good for when the language of the rules is opqaque
