    Hi everyone I am a law student studying LLB.
    It is now the exam period but I just got myself confused. This is the first time for me to do a law exam so I don't really know how people should revise for it,i got some basic thoughts though.
    One thing I am so unsure is whether people should reread textbooks and judgments ? I mean i can see both side of it: covering a lot of materials that can recall your full memory and costing you a huge amount of time.
    I am aware that there is no golden rule but could people give me a clue about whether you went through all those materials and how you will choose: reread or not?

    You need to know the key judgements from your starred cases and how that has developed the case law. Also, mark up your statute book(s) with indexes so you can find the relevant stuff quickly in the exam (so long as your university permits this, of course)

    You're welcome . Yes, you should definitely know all the important cases and the summary judgements at least in them - if you know you should have read them but not made notes on them, then at least read the lead judgement or a summary of them in your textbooks (reading the original judgment is always better, but I understand you might be up against it, time-wise).
