Today is such a beautiful day that I could not help but snap a photo on my drive down the canyon. The past few days have been so gloomy here; it even rained the other day! I will not complain though, because parts of the country have been experiencing such terrible weather and the little bit of rain we received was much needed. California declared an emergency drought (last week I believe) and then just like that, it rained.
Anyway, this post is actually another law school related post! This isn't new news by any means, but you've never heard it from me. So here it goes ... SUPPLEMENTS are a gift from the heavens. Although I had supplements last semester also, I really did not put them to use until I was studying for finals. Needless to say, they helped me pull through. I would especially recommend the Kaplan supplement to anyone starting their first year of law school. If you are anything like me, then you like your notes brief and in simple, non technical language. Kaplan does just that. It really breaks the information down for you in simple terms. This semester, I have Con Law and Property. The language in both of these courses can be very overwhelming, but after reading my cases, I go through the supplement and it really helps to simplify everything. Of course you will still have to know what those big terms mean when you are taking your final; but with a better understanding, it will be easier for you to spot the issues and write a decent analysis. This semester, I am starting early with the supplements and I have all the faith that it will be even better than the last.
