  • Description

    The flagship title in the series, The Glannon Guide to Civil Procedure integrates multiple-choice questions into a full-fledged review of the course. Lead-up discussions of law prepare students to effectively learn from subsequent questions. Clear explanations of both correct and incorrect answers help to clarify nuances in the law. Carefully crafted questions are sophisticated but fair, neither too difficult nor unrealistically simple, and they are equally useful to all students―whether they will be tested by multiple-choice questions or not. The Glannon Guide to Civil Procedure embodies a far more user-friendly and interactive approach than other exam preparation aids, and valuable exam-taking pointers are interspersed throughout the text. A challenging final question in each chapter (the “Closer”) illustrates a sophisticated problem in law, while “Closing Closer” questions in the last chapter provide further practice and cumulative review.
