About 25% shorter than the previous edition, the third edition of this casebook contains both traditional edited case opinions and numerous brief example cases so students can learn from reviewing multiple applications of the legal rules. Well placed text boxes provide “reading critically” questions preceding cases and supplemental information and additional questions at crucial junctures. Tables and flowcharts demonstrate connections among concepts and give visual learning cues. With the guidance provided, students are able to prepare more effectively for class, so they start class at a more sophisticated level and proceed more easily to deeper analysis. The book also includes frequent problem sets, both essay and multiple-choice, to test and expand students’ understanding. The accompanying electronic version links directly to cited sources and to related multiple-choice problems. In addition to classic contract cases the book includes new cases chosen because of their teachability and because they address current issues and modern business practices. “Practice Pointers” provide a transactional focus by exploring practical implications of legal doctrine. The book no longer contains the text of Restatement and UCC provisions, so it should be accompanied by a statutory supplement.
