Thank you for buying this book. It covers all Supreme Court cases decided through March 30, 2014.
We think the special features that are part of this edition will help you a lot. These include:
Capsule Summary---We've boiled the black-letter law of Civil Procedure down to 107 pages. We've designed this Capsule Summary to be read in the last week or so (maybe even the last night) before your exam. If you want to know more about a topic, cross-references in the Capsule point you to the pages in the main text that cover the topic more thoroughly.
Casebook Correlation Chart---This chart shows you, for the leading Civil Procedure casebooks, where in the Emanuel any topic from your casebook is covered.
Exam Tips---We've compiled these by reviewing dozens of actual past essay questions, and 100s of multiple-choice questions, asked in past law-school and bar exams. The Exam Tips are at the end of each chapter.
Quiz Yourself questions---These short-answer questions will help you test whether you've absorbed the material. You'll find these distributed within each chapter, usually at the end of a roman-numeraled section. Each “pod” of Quiz Yourself questions can easily be located by using the Table of Contents.
