Abstract:

"Wolters Kluwer Law and Business is known for its essential guides for law school success. Now Open Book: Succeeding on Exams from the First Day of Law School offers today's law students more than simple exam preparation. The authors, both award-winning teachers with a wealth of classroom experience, reveal what professors really look for in exam answers. By linking exam-taking to the actual practice of law, they explain what it means to 'think like a lawyer' in an exam setting, and how to get the most out of classes. Open Book also showcases a distinctive central pedagogy, 'the pinball method of exam-taking, ' and provides detailed examples and a wealth of concrete exam-taking techniques. Initial reviewers--including professors teaching core 1L classes, writing instructors and law school administrators--have been unanimous and enthusiastic in their praise. Numerous student reviewers have likewise remarked that it changed their study habits and their entire outlook on law school. With straightforward prose, memorable, and often humorous illustrations, and a unique insider's perspective, Open Book: Succeeding on Exams from the First Day of Law School opens a clear path to law school success"--Provided by publisher.
