I would be remiss if I did not recommend my co-editor's outstanding resources for learning how to prepare for and take law school exams. Dennis Tonsing's "Final Examination Study Strategy" and "Studying for Multiple Choice Exams" provide detailed, practical advice and links to other excellent resources, including collections of practice exams.
Take another look at the series of sites we have suggested over the past week and consider alerting your students to some of them. If you are like me, you are offering academic support from several directions because no one approach is likely to reach all students. Alerting them to good online resources is an easy way to pass on information in a form that many students will find especially helpful.
You might want to give them one recommendation every couple of days, as we've done here, so that they are not overwhelmed with material in a single communication; but think about alerting them to several of the sites we've suggested and others you think would be helpful. Providing them with a number of sites over a few days gives them an additional level of choice among different approaches to preparation and exam taking. (DBW)
