Short and Happy"? This book is indeed "short" - much shorter than any other student guide. The reason is that other student guides are written to help your students understand their business associations/organizations course, to get them through 42 or 56 class hours. This student guide is different. It is written to help your students understand final exam questions - to get them through a 3 of 4 hour exam. Rather than teaching students how cases and concepts are applied in the real world, this book teaches them how cases and concepts need to be applied in the "unreal" world of law school exams. This is the book to read after students have spent the semester working on law review (Or was it clinic? Or client counseling competitions? Or Kundalini yoga? Or shape note singing?) instead of Business Associations. Learn more about this series at ShortandHappyGuides.com.
