Siegel's have been used by thousands of law students during the past decade, and any one will tell you why -- doing practice exam questions is the key to exam success.

The ones who do best on exams understand how legal problems (issues) stem from from the rules of law which they have memorized and how to communicate their analysis of these issues to the grader.
