As for the content of the book, it definitely has some great material. Getting it, reading through it and doing the exercises will not be a loss to you, especially if you have zero experience with reading cases. In the end, if you go to a decent law school, you will probably end up going through the material and figure out everything within the first week (or two), so it's not a huge loss if you don't get it. Still, considering that each day in law school is probably costing you one to two hundred dollars, if you are a go-getter and have some time before school starts, you should consider adding this to your pre-law studying/exploration.
It is effective in the way it moves from basic colloquial reading into legal analysis and information retention. The book builds a bank of knowledge as it progresses very much like the study of law.
I was somewhat nervous about the onset of law school, but this book has helped me build my confidence and, I think, has helped prepare me for what is to come. I find myself using the reading and retention techniques as I continued to read. My enthusiasm for the law and understanding of the process grew as read this book. I strongly recommend.
