Ships from and sold by elawbooks. Hasen taught an adjacent section of 1L Torts at my school; I got this book because everyone in his class seemed a lot more comfortable with the central and more nuanced concepts of Torts. It is a great companion to explain whatever Torts topics are still fuzzy after lecture & the casebook. One person found this helpful.

I use glannon guide as a "check" I don't rely on it for information. The questions are quick and helpful but they are nothing like the final. It is a good book to use to make sure you are on the right track. If you want something that has a few multiple choice questions scattered through the reading this is for you. If you want more multiple choice questions that will reflect more what is on the test, go for Finz or Q & A
This is a great review book, and I found it very easy to use, and the explanation for why each multiple choice is or isn't right is really helpful.
I purchased 5 supplements for my 1L Torts course (Fall+Spring). This book, The Glannon Guide to Torts is a concise version of E&E. As soon as my brain got fuzzy while reading cases, I referred to this book to figure out what was the point of the all the madness. After the book gives you a short overview of the rule of law, it jumps into long multiple choice questions. It then provides explanations to the correct and the incorrect answer choices. The other book that I recommend is Emanuel CrunchTime Torts, which provides master outline and flow-charts. That is what I used the week before exams. The other books were no use to me (Gilbert Torts Law Summaries (too much irrelevant info.), E&E Torts (not relevant to exam and way too long to read throughout semester), and Tort Law Shapo (a hornbook, not on point enough). Other than the two I recommend, just read your cases and use google.
It was the only supplemental material that I bought during my 1L year, and it really cleared things up. This was way better than the E&E in my opinion (which I took out from the library on occasion). Other books of this nature usually end up being more cumbersome than your casebook. Not so in this instance, it's much more concise. It gives a great overview of all of the major concepts, and goes into depth where it needs to. There were a few spots where I felt it was a bit Restatement 3rd heavy (spots that my prof said that the courts haven't quite adopted yet). But all in all, great. Good use of hypos too.
Don't let the title of this guide fool you. This book is not written or edited by Joe Glannon, and the quality of it reflects his lack of input. The multiple choice questions are written specifically to cater to the exact terminology of Hansen's proceeding paragraphs to each question and do little to teach the reader anything substantive about tort law.

90% of the multiple choice questions present hypotheticals with answers that mirror the following:
A) The court should reject the argument because of X
B) The court should reject the argument because of Y
C) The court should accept the argument because of not X
D) The court should accept the argument because of not Y

I understand that this may be a way that some law exam questions are written, but it's useless when the entire book is written this way. On top of that, the wrong answers in this book are almost always so far out in left field that the correct answer can be identified without any critical thinking whatsoever. It's like the questions are geared towards a fifth grader and are undoubtedly not useful to a law student. When two answers are close, Hansen chooses his "correct" answer on subjective judgments that pick and choose according to what he believes is substantive law, which again, renders this book useless to a law student.

Do NOT buy this book. You will find that your time is better spent reviewing your instructor's course material, or better yet, a book actually written by Glannon.
I used this book along with a couple of other study aids for my midterm and have to say it was very helpful. It has the familiar, helpful layout of all the Glannon Guide series - the answer choices highlight important doctrinal differences, and I found that they helped me wrap my head around some of the finer details of Torts. I currently have Professor Glannon for Civil Procedure, and this book fits his teaching style very well. All in all, a great tool!
I strongly recommend this book; it is an extremely helpful study guide for any first year law student. I used it as exam prep in conjunction with a thorough review of my notes and casebook, and found it a very useful addition to my studies. The book provides a thorough review of all the relevant Torts materials and I found it to be a great tool for comprehensive preparation for my first-year Torts exam. The reasonable multiple-choice questions require an in-depth understanding of the material to decipher the nuances between the different options. If you read the materials as a summary, try the multiple-choice questions, get the correct answer, and understand the reasoning behind it, you're likely to do well on your Torts exam, in my experience.
If you are looking to get acquainted with multiple choice for a torts exam, this book is great! In fact, there were several questions very similar to what was on my exam which really helped me. There is also a review on specific topics before you answer the questions which I found helpful which I added to my outline. Recommend to anyone studying for a torts exam. Assuming you study the material before the exam, you should be able to run though this book in about 2 days without a problem.
