Out Of Print
This volume deals with the major hurdle that all students must face - examinations. To overcome this barrier, it is important that the exam process is fully understood by students, and that the techniques used by successful examinees are thoroughly mastered.

The book demonstrates how good students can do themselves justice in examinations by using the knowledge that they have acquired to full effect. The authors suggest ways in which legal arguments can be marshalled, and identifies methods by which both essay and problem questions can be tackled. Examples are drawn from the core subjects of contract, criminal law, public law and the law of torts, although the techniques illustrated can be applied to many other areas of the law. This should be a useful aid to any student taking academic law examinations.
