This is an amazing supplement. I knew next to nothing about the Constitution when this class began. After the class started, I was completely lost for about 4-5 weeks especially since our class, like most, was letting students ramble on without any clear points. I bought the case briefs but they were only good for providing case summaries. I bought Chemerinsky and while I love that book, it isn't exactly what you need for a law school exam. But after getting this supplement, everything changed.

I went from knowing next to nothing about the Constitution to being extremely comfortable in the class discussions. This book summarizes concepts, it clarifies the differences between cases, it provides clear guidance as to the history of the law's development, and most importantly, it provides a brief summary of the significance of the cases and a good summary of the state of the law as it exists today (which is what you really need for the exam). it dedicates a lot of time to equal protection and substantive due process and explains all of those cases in an easily-understood format. And amazingly, it gives you great guidance as to areas of case analysis that your professor will likely explore like the significance of social sciences in the Brown v. Board of Education case. But none of that is even the best part of this book...

The best part of this book is it's assistance as a study guide. It points out common areas where you are likely to be tested (standing, affirmative action, abortion) and for me, it even gave me advance warning on a specific exam question, namely, how much the law has changed regarding abortion since the Casey decision. When I saw that question on my exam, I just laughed. I ended up getting a B+ on the final and in the class.
My Con law professor was unorganized and did not articulate the effects/salient facts of cases very clearly. A month before the final I decided to buy this book, as I was panicking for finals. I ended up getting curve, going solely off this book.

It's laid out in very easy to understand bulletpoints, with the effects of each seminal case highlighted for the topic being discussed. The topics are usually arranged in the way a teacher would ask on the test too, very helpful. However, the organization does not lend itself well to learning policy arguments for ruling one way or another. Depending on the professor, this could be a minimal issue or the whole class. Look at old tests and figure out if they ask substantive issues or policy recommendations.

TL;DR: Great book for studying for finals. Covers all the substantive law. For policy arguments, may want to get another supplement to complement this one.
Excellent study aid. There's so much unnecessary b.s. in a con-law casebook that having something like this is a godsend. Why spend 5 hours on something when you can spend 2 learning the same thing from this book?

It's going too far to say that I could have completely discarded my casebook for the semester, but it ain't that far off.

You don't want to rely too much on commercial outlines, but this one is nails.

Buy it.
This book is worth its weight in gold. I have used it in two classes (and I should be using it to prepare for my Con Law II exam now, rather than writing this review). It includes thorough case summaries, many of which include concurrences and dissents. Ties the cases together in a way that highlights each case's significance. The case summaries are the most useful during classes, but when it comes time for exams, it includes topical outlines, "capsule summaries," exam tips, study questions, literally everything you could possibly want in a study aid. I could kiss Stephen L. Emanuel. I should probably include that I got the highest grade in my Constitutional Law I class. Obviously you still need to read and pay attention in class, but this book really helps to clarify constitutional law, which can often be a very muddy subject.
I used this manual to reinforce my learning of the constitutional lawEmanuel Law Outlines: Constitutional Law, 30th Edition required casebook and hornbook reading. I highly recommend as a study aid.
Not only is it really easy to use, it has the vast majority of cases discussed in the notes of the Sullivan 18th edition. It is, of course, not a substitute for your textbook but it draws from the really important and most current Con. Law cases while still addressing other supplements (such as Nowack). It was really, really helpful. If you start using this before class starts to start building your tests and outlines, you'll get a ton more out of the reading and class.
You'll do better in Con law just by reading this book, rather than studying your textbook. Get the same information as your textbook (but read 1/50th the amount) and test your knowledge. Much more efficient, much more sane.
It isn't a concise outline book, but it does summarize everything you need to know for class most of the time.
