Four important Library resources to keep in mind as you prepare for upcoming exams.
First: The Library’s Exam Preparation Resources web page offers a host of materials containing practical advice and strategies designed to help you navigate the exam process.
Second: One of the best ways to prepare for a professor’s exam is to see what they have done in the past! It’s a great way to understand how your professor thinks.
The Library maintains an archive of previous years’ exams for most courses. They are found in the Exam Archive (Choose “Exams, Grades, and Registration” under the Student Resources tab) on the NYLS Portal. You can access these exams by course or professor name.
Third: Want to find a study aid? Check out our collection on Lexis Digital. You can search by subject, title or author to find what you’re looking for. You can also search our catalog to see what we have in print.
Fourth: CALI offers a variety of lessons and podcasts with helpful tips and advice from faculty on preparing for and taking exams. To access these materials, log in to CALI; under CALI Topics, click Legal Concepts and Skills and scroll down to one or more of these lessons:
