Anyone thinking about attending law school faces three years of discipline and hard work. Miller, an attorney and 1998 University of Pennsylvania law school graduate, shares his knowledge about getting through. Miller covers every aspect of the law school experience-from surviving the first semester to seeking summer internships-which makes this book unique. He presents experiences of other law students to help readers understand what is expected of them and how these expectations will affect heir social and personal lives. The author emphasizes that discipline and conviction are the keys to successfully completing law school. Chapters are of course included on how to study for entrance tests and select an appropriate school. Recommended for all college and larger public libraries.

I placed my order very carefully, making sure to download the 2011 edition of the book for Kindle. What I received, though, was the very out of date 2004 edition of the book. Not good! I could be mistaken about this, imagining it? But I can find in the first pages of the Kindle version of what Amazon sold me only the 2003 foreward and **no** sign of the 2010 one that clearly exists in the paperback version of the book. So what else am I supposed to conclude? What reason would Amazon have to omit the 2010 remarks from a book with a 2011 copyright date? I can think of no reason.
So it looks like what Amazon is selling as the 2011 Kindle edition is actually an electronic version of the 2004 edition of the book, which is very out of date, now, in the year 2017.
I have a small beef with this book which prevented it from achieving the rarified air of five stars. Since the book discusses a broad range of subjects pertaining to law school, it gives a fairly superficial treatment of each. This is of course out of necessity; the book would be 2,000 pages long if Miller went into detail about every last topic. But he makes very few recommendations for further reading. A perfect example is the chapter entitled "Your Five Most Critical Hours: How to Beat the LSAT." Judging by the title, you'd think this was a veritable cornucopia of information on cracking the LSAT, right? Guess what--the chapter is seven pages long. The only resources Miller mentions are the Princeton Review (he didn't take it), a Princeton Review book and an ARCO book. These are mentioned in passing; they are not recommendations. My point is, this book would have benefited greatly from a "Further Reading" section at the end of each chapter for those who want to get more detailed information about a topic and are confused by the ocean of law school books that are out there.
But this is just a small chink in the armor of what I consider to be a very helpful, informative and enjoyable book. Kudos to Mr. Miller--a generation of law students will be better off for having read his book.
