The popular Glannon Guide to Criminal Law is a concise, clear, effective review of criminal law topics organized around multiple-choice questions. Employing a student-friendly, accessible tone, this text includes brief explanatory text about each topic under discussion, followed by one or two multiple-choice questions. After each question, the author explains how the correct choice was chosen and clarifies why other options were not correct. A more sophisticated “Closer” question at the end of each chapter challenges students to stretch their analytical abilities and examine subtle nuances of the topic. Unlike other titles, this approach emphasizes learning the concepts, rather than mastering test-taking techniques.

The author has thoroughly updated the Third Edition and has added numerous new hypotheticals including many that feature situations involving the Model Penal Code.

Three Stars Multiple choice questions are too simple to be practically useful.

Roxanne says:

Must Have For All 1Ls!!! Every Crim Law student should have this book. Even if your prof doesn’t require it. It explains each concept so clearly and helps you quiz yourself after each new idea to make sure you understand it. Each answer is gone through step by step to expalin why it’s correct or not. Read it before cases to get an idea of what you’re looking for.

Christian says:

Excellent Exam Prep My Criminal Law final was all multiple choice. I don’t know about you, but that gets frustrating because it seems so subjective. This book is amazing because it shows you exactly what they are looking for and really helped me out. Definitely feel it was responsible for getting me a letter grade higher on the final.
