The fourth edition of Professor Munneke’s How to Succeed in Law School (KF283 .M86 2008) was published this year, and it is valuable reading for law students and for people thinking about attending law school. This book looks at the whole law school experience, including sections on study skills, time management and stress management. Of particular interest to students at this time of year will be Chapter 5 : Taking Exams. Here, Professor Munneke provides insights about what your professors are looking for when they correct your exams. He closes this chapter with the following thought:
Most schools provide for exam review, and if you did poorly, you need to know what you did wrong. Conversely, if you did well, you will want to know how to replicate the feat.
