During National Library Week, the library conducted a survey polling our current students about their favorite study aids.
The results have been tallied and sifted through, and we are proud to present the official word on Charlotte Law student’s preferred study aid materials!
Our top five study aids are:
- Examples and Explanations – 28.57%
- Emanuel Law Outlines – 12.78%
- Flash Cards – 12.03%
- Black Letter Outlines – 11.28%
- Glannon Guides – 10.53%
Here’s the full breakdown:
Want to know why people prefer one type of study aid to another? We’ve got a graph for that too!
Here’s some of what our students had to say:
“I use The Black Letter Outlines for supplement reading because they provide a solid overview of the specific material and key terms that I should be pulling out of the cases I am assigned.”
“This study aid speaks in regular language. It breaks down concepts to make them very simple to understand (Emanuels).”
“I am an audio learner. It allows me to think visually while I listen to the subject I’m studying (Audio CDs).”
“I’m not one to use study aids, but I like the Examples & Explanations because they’ve been consistently recommended by professors and because they give an opportunity to test your knowledge rather than just rephrasing.”
“I find that most professors suggest this series as a supplement to their teaching. Additionally, I have found that the explanations are very clear and helpful to explain complex theories (Examples & Explanations).”
“The Understanding Series breaks down the subject material in terms in which you will understand it better.”
