NOT A GOOD SOURCE
on November 18, 2011
This book has interesting cases the organization seems to be fairly straight forward for a 1y Crim law class, but in its entirety this book is just very ineffective. Its hard to describe, it is just not very well written. Many times you feel like Dressler is over philosophizing about key simple issues, and your left with no real understanding of the material. When I left for college it seems so long ago but I had a wonderful English teacher and he told me be careful because the further down the road my education takes me the more I will meet intelligent vibrant people-but poor educators. Dressler is a smart intelligent man but he fails miserably at making his material accessible to first year law students.
Good luck to you all who have to choke your way through this book.
