I bought this E&E just before finals to prepare for the exam. It was definitely worth the price. It helped clear up any uncertainties I had and gave me a "big picture" perspective of the semester. Each topic is broken into a chapter that gives an overall explanation, and at the end of each chapter there are 10+ questions that reinforce/give additional information about the process of applying the topic to a fact pattern. There are also exam tips and 2-3 long essay samples with sample answers.

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.

For some reason I think Amazon's reviews bleed through different editions.

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.

Before I get into the good things about this book, I have all the E+E's for my first year classes and the problem I have with all of them is that they don't cover a lot of the subjects that are covered in each class, which sometimes leaves me resorting to other sources or supplements if I don't understand something, or to help me outline. With that being said, the material is does cover is done very well. The examples and explanations part is very very helpful in preparing for exams, as well as for learning the material, and are the best part of the E+E series (hence the title of the books). I haven't seen any amazing torts supplements out there, but this is definitely one of the better ones.

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.

I actually purchased this for help with my classes, but found even though it had some basic information, the best use was not for daily reading and case briefing, but for exams. There are a few pages in each chapter of basic topic description and then the rest of the chapter has example essay type questions you can use to practice before midterms or finals. You then get explanations to go along with those sample questions that let you know if you're on the right track. If you need help for daily reading, this isn't going to help, but if you are worried about exams, this is the book for you.

Very helpful. Reviews of older editions mentioned that it did not include all of the intentional torts. This new edition does.

I bought this book as a supplement, not an exam review. I also have Abraham's Forms and Functions. While this text is useful for pinpoint little knacks in the law, spotting issues, and generally getting more acquainted with applications of BLL, I found it to be lacking in the policy department. A lot of really important policy arguments (even policy themes that apply to most issues like putting people on notice and best cost avoiders) just get lost. Also, I found that Glannon tends to glaze over economic arguments

I love these Examples & Explanations books. The rules make sense when you can get decent examples, and these books do a good job of that.

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."

The book can be a little complex until you catch up to the right chapters in your lecture's casebook. But after covering the material in class, this book further solidifies everything learned in lecture. Glannon is good, no question about it! :)
