Prepping For Exams? Help is Here!

The library has lots of study aids available to help you prepare for your substantive law class exams.

The Study Aids are located across from the Reference Desk, to your left as you enter the library; there are also some study aids on reserve.  If you’re looking for practice questions with sample answers, this is the place to go; it can be very helpful for you to test what you know and find out what you might need to review again.  They can also help you think about how to approach questions; for example, the Crunchtime series has flow charts that were very helpful for me when I was in law school in making a plan of attack for certain types of questions.

Also helpful are CALI lessons.  It has lessons on all the first year courses, and again they are a great way to review hat you’ve already studied and test what you still need to learn, or simply to give yourself a break from outlining without taking a break from studying.  If you haven’t registered for CALI already, you can do so by going to the following website:  http://www.cali.org/user/register.  You’ll create your own password once you’re there. You’ll need USC’s authorization code.  Stop by the reference desk or ask your favorite reference librarian for it!

Good luck with studying!
