I used various supplements for this class. Before buying all of them, I would go to your law library and look them over, use them for your class and see which work best for you. My biggest mistake was thinking by using supplements I would learn less or get screwed up. Professors tell you whether they like supplements or not, but if you use them to prepare for class, still at least go through the cases and take NOTES from what professors say, you will do far better.
I will explain the supplements I used and how I studied for class and finals. In the both semesters I read Understanding to get a more in-depth explanation of materials I had difficulty with. Before each class assignment I read through Emanuel Law Outlines: Property, Dukeminier/Krier Edition (casebook Property) and then used it to work through the assigned reading. After class I quickly ran through my notes and organized them a bit into a rough outline (10-15 mins). Then on the weekend I would work on hypos using Property Examples & Explanations, 3e, which has a great format with simple examples to work with. I also used Siegel's Property: Essay and Multiple-Choice Questions and Answers from the library just to get some extras.
In the first semester, upon reaching the RAP, I used a great CHEAP (get used since only use a couple weeks) workbook A student's guide to estates in land and future interests: Text, examples, problems and answers (Student guide series). This definitely made things much easier because it is presented in a way that children can understand. The RAP seems complicated, but it is actually quite simple, which is why this was so useful.
These books collectively were not necessary, but they helped. If short on cash, the books from most helpful to least are your required casebook, Emanuel (especially if keyed), Understanding Property, E&E, and Seigels. However, many prefer E&E for explanation over Understanding.
See my other reviews regarding the books mentioned above. However, only the first couple paragraphs will be different.
Good Luck, I will try and answer any comments!
