Q. Where can I find study aids?


Study aids can clarify confusing concepts and even provide practice questions for your review. A variety of study aids are available and the best one to use depends on your course and individual study habits. Most of these books can be found in the Study Aids section (on the left side of the Reading Room, 2d floor), with older editions in the stacks available for checkout.

Examples & Explanations (practice questions and answers)

Nutshells (a broad overview of a subject)
Hornbooks (in-depth treatment with extensive citations)
Understanding Series (“concise, yet comprehensive”)
Concepts and Insights (provides a basic theoretical foundation)
Turning Point (a broad overview similar to Nutshells)

We also collect Sum & Substance study aids as CD audio discs. The newest edition is held at the Circulation Desk (2d floor atrium) while older sets are housed in our Media Services room 1st Floor.

CALI lessons are another useful exam review option. Over 800 interactive lessons prepared by law professors and librarians cover over 30 practice areas of law. Georgetown students can register for immediate online access.

Good luck with your studies!
