It’s never too early for exam prep, right? Study aids can help with that.
Study aids are used to help you enhance your understanding of concepts taught in the classroom. While your notes and professor’s explanations should always be your primary source of information, study aids can help supplement your understanding and help you test your knowledge. Where can you find them? The Library, of course!
This week we are highlighting the Acing series.
What is the “Acing” series? The Acing series are study aids that use a checklist format to lead students through questions they need to ask to fully evaluate legal problems. This makes them great for exam prep!
Acing titles assemble different issues and give a clear guide to procedural analysis that students can draw upon when writing their exams. Overall, Acing provides a systematic approach to tackling exam questions.
The Library has Acing titles available online and in print!
