Product Description

The Glannon Guide to Criminal Law: Learning Criminal Law Through Multiple-Choice Questions and Analysis gives students an effective tool for exam preparation. Using the successful structure established by Joseph Glannon's The Glannon Guide to Civil Procedure, this comprehensive review book emphasizes learning legal concepts, rather than mastering testing techniques.

For each topic, the author provides:

A brief, clearly-written summary;
One or two multiple-choice questions to test understanding;
A concise explanation of how to choose the correct answer that also serves as a review of course content;
Practical tips on analyzing exam questions.

Every aspect of The Glannon Guide to Criminal Law encourages comprehension:

The multiple-choice questions are part of a complete review of Criminal Law, including common law and the Model Penal Code;
Introductory discussions of law in the text prepare students to learn effectively from subsequent questions;
Succinct explanations of both correct and incorrect answers help to clarify nuances in the law;
Multiple-choice questions are sophisticated but fair, neither too difficult nor unrealistically straightforward;
The text is equally useful to all students, regardless of whether they will be tested by multiple-choice questions on their exams;
The user-friendly interactive approach is much more engaging than other exam preparation aids;
In each chapter, a more sophisticated final question called the Closer illustrates a more complicated problem in the area;
The final chapter contains 15 Closing Closer questions to provide more practice and a helpful review of concepts in earlier chapters;
Valuable exam-taking pointers within the substantive text show students what to expect at exam time and help them get ready.
