The links below will take you to study aids and practice exams for the Constitutional Law course. The study aids have been carefully selected and recommended for each course. The practice exams have not been. They are just a collection of exams I or others have found around the web. I tried to grab relatively recent exams and tried to pick only one or two from each professor.

I found con law to be particularly tough to study for. There are not a ton of clear-cut rules. The exams tend to prompt answers that are more like short theory essays, and the professors like to try to come up with novel sorts of questions to keep you off guard, which can make it hard to outline for effectively.

That said, like in all courses, how much you studied will come through in your answer. For many courses, I think taking a ton of practice exams is a good way to go, but for constitutional law, I would probably recommend focusing more on the cases and the study aids. In particular, I would recommend re-reading some of the key cases, or at least the key sections of them, while you're studying.
