No complaints. explains the cases and doctrines well. I also purchased the Dressler supplement and it explains the cases more in depth

Dressler's "Cases and Materials" textbook is so widely used that it likely sets the parameters for most national survey courses on Criminal Law. Personally, I found that I needed supplemental materials (the author has published his own treatise) to fully appreciate the nuances and interplay between the cases. My only annoyance is that the post-case questions leave the student with more questions than answers. Normally, that's a good thing, because ambiguity leaves room for law school argumentation. However, it's difficult to form opposing arguments if the student doesn't fully understand the boundaries of the material. Thus, I would have preferred greater clarity and context in these post-case question sections. In this respect alone, the author seems to hide the very ball that he so clearly describes in his separate treatise. In summary, I'm very satisfied with the quality of this textbook.

My professor told us this may be the best text book we ever use in law school, and I wouldn't be surprised if that came to be true. Clear, logical presentation of concepts, and cases perfectly selected to give a good introduction to both the Common Law and MPC. The notes were clear and well-organized and the examples after cases were very helpful. Absolutely no complaints.

Dressler was my prof. So I might be partial but I loved this book. It was outlined well and it flowed nicely, however if you didn't have him as a professor I suppose the "why" of some of the experts wouldn't come across and it could possibly be a bit confusing... Good thing there is the black letter outline... By Dressler.

Anything by Dressler will tell you what you need to know. It will be accurate, and it will be exact. This text is no different. It is an excellent beginners Criminal Law text, and it should be used in every classroom.

The book is well highlighted, underlined, and written in...but not in a way that's intrusive. My Crim Law Professor teaches directly from this!
