Hornbooks contain in-depth discussions of legal principles and are typically the most comprehensive of review materials.  These are most useful if used early and often to supplement class assignments. 


Nutshells are intended to be quick reference guides.  They are great to refer to when one certain topic is troubling or when a broad overview is desired.

There is an inexhaustible supply of commercial products available, so it is beneficial to try to browse several and see which ones work best for you.  Student recommendations not available in our library include Emanuel, Gilbert, BARBRI, and Kaplan.
