No matter how good your research and study skills, the ultimate test for the law student is the exam. This book explains how to tackle problem and essay questions typically found in exam papers, and how to draft successful answers. The authors clearly guide students through the process of planning and structuring answers, providing essential advice on what to include and what to leave out. The book's 50 questions and model answers are divided into chapters covering all major topics. Each question is supported by clear commentary indicating exactly what examiners are looking for, followed by an answer plan listing key points to cover. Chapters begin with an introduction focusing on important points, and end with suggestions for further reading. Online Resource Centre An Online Resource Centre accompanies the book, providing revision and exam advice, links to useful websites, and a glossary to develop students' understanding of subject-specific terms.
