As you begin to prepare for exams, supplement your assigned readings and review of past exams with study aids found in the library. Study aids can clarify confusing concepts and even provide practice questions for your review. A variety of study aids are available and the best one to use depends on your course and individual study habits. Most of these books can be found in the Williams Reading Room Reserve, with older editions in the stacks available for checkout.
- Examples & Explanations (practice questions and answers)
- Nutshells (a broad overview of a subject)
- Hornbooks (in-depth treatment with extensive citations)
- Understanding Series (“concise, yet comprehensive”)
- Concepts and Insights (provides a basic theoretical foundation)
- Turning Point (a broad overview similar to Nutshells)
CALI lessons are another useful exam review option. Over 800 interactive lessons prepared by law professors and librarians cover over 30 practice areas of law. Georgetown students can register for immediate online access.
Good luck with your studies!
