This book is very helpful in easily explaining a concept and explaining how things relate to each other. I wish I had ordered the book at the beginning of the semester to read each chapter as we were discussing the topic in class. I feel it would have been very helpful.
This is a great tool for a study aid, but it can not be used to ace an exam without going to class or taking good class notes. It only explains majority opinions on topics, and often professors will cover both majority/minority opinions and their applications to be tested on them. Additionally, although it does touch on the Restatement, it does not go into much detail about the Restatement approach for many topics, so if you professor focuses on that you will need additional instruction.
I used this book in conjunction with the Crunchtime: Torts. I found that combined, they were a great prep tool and plan to use both again for other classes. With that said, the Torts E&E was far more helpful than any other E&E. I would not recommend an E&E for every class, and think you should look at the book in the library before you purchase it to see if it would be a decent supplement for your class.
IE. You will find reviews of the 1st/2nd edition on the 3rd editions page. This often misleads and/or distorts the promotion of a product.
The newest editions of examples & explanations are fabulous and settle a few issues that may have been present in the past. All to often students expect these to be comprehensive outlines like Emanuels that do all the work for them---no. The grades come to those who work and that is where this series shines. It gives you practice and furthers understanding.
The last chapter of the book also does an excellent job talking about exam writing and explaining the IRAC method. So if you need an extra boost in torts or just want something to reinforce what you are learning in class, this is a great book.
If you find your outline frustrating (Like Emmanuels and/or Gilberts - both of which drive me nuts with frustration) try the Finals series books. I like them much better as outlines than the "official outlines."
