Law school can be frustrating, especially when the case books you read for class only give you the summary of a case, but don't give you that much information on the actual rule of law.
I decided to buy Vincent R. Johnson's Mastering Torts Third Edition after my midterms in my first semester of law school. I received a C on my Torts midterm, so I knew that I needed some serious help. Mastering Torts was a supplement to my case book for the class, meaning that it was not a required book, but something that could be used as a study aid.
After I bought the book, Torts class began to make sense to me. The book breaks down everything from intentional torts to the dreaded subject of negligence, and it does it in such a way that it was much easier to understand than just my case book. Plus, the book helped me create a more study-friendly outline.
Mastering Torts paid off. I received an A- in the class--much better than I dared hope for. If you are having trouble in Torts class, or if you just want to have an edge over the rest of the class, definitely pick up a copy of Mastering Torts Third Edition. It's worth the money to get the best grade possible.
