These are the books that I used for my review. TIP: It's advisable to use the books you've been using all through your entire four years of law school. The advantages are: (1) you are already familiar with it; (2) you've probably already noted the more important passages and added in some text of your own; and finally (3) you can save your money for more important things, like your plane tickets to and accommodation in Manila for the exam month.
