In fact, there were several questions very similar to what was on my exam which really helped me.

You will find that your time is better spent reviewing your instructor's course material, or better yet, a book actually written by Glannon.
Tyler
I strongly recommend this book; it is an extremely helpful study guide for any first year law student.

I purchased 5 supplements for my 1L Torts course (Fall+Spring). This book, The Glannon Guide to Torts is a concise version of E&E. As soon as my brain got fuzzy while reading cases, I referred to this book to figure out what was the point of the all the madness. After the book gives you a short overview of the rule of law, it jumps into long multiple choice questions. It then provides explanations to the correct and the incorrect answer choices. The other book that I recommend is Emanuel CrunchTime Torts, which provides master outline and flow-charts. That is what I used the week before exams. The other books were no use to me (Gilbert Torts Law Summaries (too much irrelevant info.), E&E Torts (not relevant to exam and way too long to read throughout semester), and Tort Law Shapo (a hornbook, not on point enough). Other than the two I recommend, just read your cases and use google.

Don't let the title of this guide fool you. This book is not written or edited by Joe Glannon, and the quality of it reflects his lack of input. The multiple choice questions are written specifically to cater to the exact terminology of Hansen's proceeding paragraphs to each question and do little to teach the reader anything substantive about tort law.

90% of the multiple choice questions present hypotheticals with answers that mirror the following:
A) The court should reject the argument because of X
B) The court should reject the argument because of Y
C) The court should accept the argument because of not X
D) The court should accept the argument because of not Y

I understand that this may be a way that some law exam questions are written, but it's useless when the entire book is written this way. On top of that, the wrong answers in this book are almost always so far out in left field that the correct answer can be identified without any critical thinking whatsoever. It's like the questions are geared towards a fifth grader and are undoubtedly not useful to a law student. When two answers are close, Hansen chooses his "correct" answer on subjective judgments that pick and choose according to what he believes is substantive law, which again, renders this book useless to a law student.

Do NOT buy this book. You will find that your time is better spent reviewing your instructor's course material, or better yet, a book actually written by Glannon.

I have all of the Glannon Guides and this one is the worst. I will give you an example. For Trespass to chattels it says "trespass to chattels requires proof of actual damage." on one page. On the very next page the author avers that "Choice D is incorrect. Though damage to the car is sufficient for the trespass to chattels, it is not necessary." Where I'm from the term "requires" is one the indicates a necessary condition, not a sufficient one. If you go with this book you don't which it is.

Rick Hasen is boss. He is THE authority of all torts material. This book is clear and concise. Well done.

If you are looking to get acquainted with multiple choice for a torts exam, this book is great! In fact, there were several questions very similar to what was on my exam which really helped me. There is also a review on specific topics before you answer the questions which I found helpful which I added to my outline. Recommend to anyone studying for a torts exam. Assuming you study the material before the exam, you should be able to run though this book in about 2 days without a problem.
