I have my Civ Pro exam this upcoming Tuesday and everything just seems so confusing. Any tips on studying or things to help me better understand?

Thanks

I always just reread my notes. It has been 3 years or I would offer to help. Maybe try a commercial outline? Get an outline from a fellow student? Get someone in class to help?

Thanks for the help Fake Pie. I just wasn't "getting it" from my outline but I am reading the capsules from and Emanuel on Civ Pro that seems to be helping.

Dude... Civ Pro is a toughie to cram for,

I would talk to students how have already been through the class with this professor and try to get a feel for his/her exam and preferences and try to go from there.

I'm finding that out Cookie Monster. It almost seems like there is no starting point with the Subject Matter Juris., Territorial Juris., Venue, etc.

Just don't rely only on commercial outlines. The biggest thing should be to read your notes (and most people outline but I didn't find it necessary). Your professor told you everything he wanted you to know. Also look at his old exams. That is a big thing.

Do you want my old civpro notes? Probably not useful because it can be so different based on the professor but you never know.

Yeah, I would read your notes. It can't hurt to read them because I'm sure there will be stuff on the exam that you have in your notes. Thanks Fake Pie.

No problem. I got your MMA Mail. I will package up and send you whatever I have when I get home tonight. Do you have OneNote? If not I will just save as a .doc.

I'll send you whatever outlines and shit I happen to have as well.

I got your emails. I really appreciate you sending me your notes and info. Especially since it sounds like you had to do some searching on our computer for them. Thanks again man.
