Needless to say, they are comprehensive and explain the law in the way it should be written on the bar exam.

They are structured to form an active approach that you can work through to make sure you hit all of the issues and maximize points. The "Issue Spotters" are short, one page checklists that are designed to be memorized prior to taking the bar exam. Exam takers use these checklists to make sure no issue goes uncovered.
