Although they have great information, they will not correlate with every professor's class. In my experience, the Torts Crunchtime was invaluable and likely made a huge difference in my grade (especially recommended if your Torts professor includes any type of multiple choice on the exam). The Civ Pro Crunchtime was helpful, especially if there was any confusion on a particular topic. Due SOLELY to the difference in my professor's teaching methods and the info in these books, the Contracts and Crim Law Crunchtime books were not helpful to me. The material differed too much from the books (everything was accurate, however, my professor's gave certain topics a lot of weight and they were barely glazed over in the book). The helpfulness of these books depend on how they correlate to your class. If they do, there is no better resource for exam prep!
Also, the only other study aid I purchased was the Examples and Explanations for each topic. They compliment the Crunchtime books well because they give you a more in depth, overall view of the topic, while Crunchtime focuses on last minute, helpful tips and answer practice. The E&E's were the same as these books for me, Civ Pro and Torts were great, Crim Law and Contracts did not add much to my study preparation.
I would not use it as your only one. You will hear your law professors say all the time, make your own outline - SO TRUE.
BUT - this will help you fill in all the gaps - for that, it is awesome. It will be key. And when you go to take your finals, you will want to have had it.
It is a really worthwhile text for augmenting the Torts lecture. It does a good job in adding more detail to what is discussed in class. It is important to note that the 'blackletter' law definitions might be diffferent from the ones given by the professor so for exam time, follow the professor's rules.
As with my review of the Crim Law version in this series, the Kindle has no page numbers that correspond to the printed version. That poses a problem during class discussions. This is especially true when changing the font sizes.
Good content, worth it for 1Ls.

Don't know why most professors can't talk in plain English like Crunch Time does... They're the best. I'd buy if they only had the flow charts, to be honest.Published 19 months ago by Andrew Biggart

I used it to study for my tort finals and it was very useful for quickly reviewing topics. Covered negligence and intentional torts very well.Published on December 30, 2013 by Chris Weeda
As others have already said, the flowcharts are particularly helpful, and Emmanuel is generally solid, but I think ultimately SnapLaw's funny animations were more effective at... Read morePublished on December 4, 2013 by Xavier
