Not for casual listeners

Other reviewers are disappointed because it’s basically just an outline, read aloud. If you’re actually studying for the bar exam, however, these outlines are gold. They don’t cover a ton of cases because you don’t need to know cases on the bar. If you’re looking for a supplement for bar study, this is PERFECT for those times when you can’t stomach writing another practice essay and you just don’t have enough focus for memorization to be effective. I also listen while looking through my Critical Pass cards (they generally go in the same order, because every bar prep tool is now keyed to Barbri’s course outline). Casual listening? Eh. Law school supplement? Probably too broad. Bar prep? Primo.

Garbage don't waste your money

This book claims to review landmark cases and it does not. I tried to find a table of contents before purchase but I was unsuccessful and so I trusted the description and purchased the book. The author flies through the topics. Not once during personal jurisdiction does he mention Pennoyer or any of the other important cases. He did give two quotes one from WWVW and one from Int'l Shoe. Saying that he flies through the topics is truly an understatement. He needs to shred this book and start over.

As good as bad can get

What would have made Civil Procedure AudioLearn - A Course Outline better?

Literally just reading off an outline. If you can swallow an entire package of saltine crackers at once then you may benefit from this. However it's too dry for the majority of the human race to stay awake to.

What could Kurt R. Mattson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

make the content more relatable and understandable by giving examples and applying the rules

Quick and concise review of Civil Procedure

Any additional comments?

Decent review of civil procedure. I listened on the way to and from work and it helped familiarize me with some of the key concepts. Overall, I would recommend this audiobook.

Just have someone read FRCP book aloud.

It just sucks all around. yeah he can speak clearly but it sounds like someone just flipped open the Fed R. Civ. Procedure book and just started flapping away. yeah examples. they suck too. just hard to follow and boring.

Jumbled and unorganized

This is one of the most chaotic outlines I have ever heard. It jumps around so much it is hard to stay focused, and some of the chapters are so long, you can't find your place. There is no way of staying on topic, as they jump from topic to topic every 45 seconds.

Disappointing

I’ve ordered other law books and this was the worst.
It jumps all over with the rules and subject matter.
I would recommend the Torts and Wills and Trusts, but not this.

Error-Ridden

Avoid this is you're studying for anything that matters, like a bar exam. It's full of errors. The narrator reads blindly, including basic grammatical errors as well. It's basically an error-filled outline. It's awful.
