The Revised Second Edition has been updated to reflect the most recent stylistic changes to the Federal Rules of Evidence, effective December 1, 2011.

Questions and Answers: Evidence helps you develop a better, fuller understanding of the law of evidence that will carry you through your evidence class and on into practice. This indispensable supplement, part of our well-known Questions and Answers series, helps you apply concepts as you learn them so that you can prepare more effectively for class and gain a competitive edge on exams.

This study guide includes over 260 multiple-choice and short-answer questions, arranged topically for ease of use during the semester, plus an additional set of 50 “practice exam” questions. For each multiple-choice question, there is a detailed answer that indicates which of four options is the best answer and explains thoroughly why that option is better than the other three options. Each short-answer question is designed to be answered in fifteen minutes or less and includes a thoughtful, comprehensive, yet brief model answer.
