Is it wrong of me to buy commercial outlines? If it's right, why does it feel so wrong? Well, not really, really wrong. But I feel like I have to hide the spine of the book from the professor. I'm worried they'll think I'm not a "serious student". Oh well. As long as I don't look at the outline first, I think it's excusable. I would recommend outlines though, if only for the practice questions in the back. Costwise, they're not an unreasonable fraction of the cost of the casebooks which may or may not be so useful.
