I've just completed my first week of crim law and I'm confused about what the best way to study for the exam is. Are supplements like E&E and Emmanual's recommended? What exactly is a hornbook?

Much depends on the kind of criminal law class you're taking. Criminal law is one of those subjects where professor's takes on the class can vary dramatically from school to school. Usually, we recommend that you learn the backbone of the subject itself from some outside source as a starting point, so that you can make sense of what your prof is doing in class. In general, we do not recommend using hornbooks-- they are mostly like encyclopedias of law. They can be a good place to look something up, but it's unlikely that they'll clear up any confusion. As for E&E or Emmanuels, some students do like these supplements, but we'd urge that you actually read one before buying. If it's not helpful to you, don't buy it just because classmates have it. Ideally, you need to create a "running outline" by combining outside sources, classnotes, classroom experience and homework briefs. For more info on how to do that, give us a call!
