First things first, you have to go to class. The outline is effective only as a supplement (and she simplifies the book, although it is a good idea to read the book - on reserve - as a reference BEFORE the lecture).

A lot of people find the class "tricky," which I can definitely imagine it being, if you're not a native English speaker. But otherwise, if you're fairly good at reading comprehension and the humanities, just keep all the details straight (and they're not ridiculously complex details, either; just a few distinctions in the law in terms of definition or classification of things), and you'll be fine. There isn't that much work, but can I emphasize that you need to attend lecture and THINK while you're there, following along?

Also, Professor Guerin is very nice, amiable, self-deprecating. She's not nurturing in the classic sense (which seems to be a lot of people's requirement for female profs) and can be a bit pleasantly snarky. Expect to laugh. So while she won't mother you, she is responsible in terms of clarifying concepts... and in terms what you generally need in a professor.

As far as grading goes, the midterm was extremely straightforward. Again, keep in mind distinctions between classifications and concepts; nothing is "tricky" on the midterm. Group projects are also straightforward, but try not to lose points on those, since she is rather lenient and you have the benefit of a lot of time and, well, a group to help you! This is a fairly significant portion of your grade, so don't throw something together the night before.

Lastly, I took the final yesterday and felt like I did badly. Secured transactions (you'll know why later) is just more confusing - for me - than anything else in this class. Most people found it reasonable (though a few notches harder than the midterm). I know I will get either a B (owing to lackluster final performance) or an A... I really recommend Professor Guerin.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, most students are Business Econ/Econ students in the class (not that that is necessary at all).
