Comment: Softcover that has very noticeable cover and edge wear. The interior pages do both underlining and notes; this is an acceptable reading copy. This book has been shrink wrapped to better protect it in the warehouse.

Format: Paperback
I work closely with law students at a Top 20 law school. This book, by a longtime law professor and head of academic support at another law school, is the single best book out there for new law students. Unlike some other authors who offer advice on law school success, Prof. Ramy has spent years actually working with real, live law students to improve their experiences at law school as well as their academic performance. He covers almost everything a new law student would need to know and think about in order to succeed, including classwork, health and wellness, study methods, note-taking, outlining and how to answer law school exams. Law school is NOT an extension of college; it is professional school and that means it is an entirely different educational system with different goals. Prof. Ramy's book is an outstanding, useful primer on how to thrive within that system, not just as a lawyer-in-training but as a young professional and as a person.

If you're not worried about law school in the summer before it starts, you're probably not ready for law school. It's a whole new world. Professor Ramy's book is a great intro into the world of law school. It offers tips on reducing stress and maintaining a study schedule. The book also offers practice essay and multiple choice questions; get your feet wet if you're ready.

Read this book before orientation and make up your mind to follow the advice before the very first day of school. Don't be one of those people who falls apart because you can't make and keep a study schedule. Prof Ramy knows what he's talking about. This is a great book.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jackson Alexander on August 6, 2008
Format: Paperback
Having been given a number of other books on doing well in Law School as gifts by well meaning friends and family, I found a great deal of information out there lacking on how to succeed in a comprehensive fashion. This book, in a clear, straightforward manner sets the proper expectations about what you need to do to make your experience work for you. It cautions you about the workload and competition for grades without scaring you (which some books do) and it provides clear guidelines on how to get and stay organized and focused. I highly recommend this book.
