The links below will take you to study aids and practice exams for the Evidence 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.

Evidence is actually kind of fun to study for. It is highly rule-based, which can make some of the cases less-than-interesting to read, but makes the exam kind of more game-like than most types of exams.

The E&E is always a good place to start, but my specific recommendation for evidence is the Questions & Answers multiple choice questions. Basically, with evidence, you're looking to fairly superficially cover a huge amount of territory and multiple choice questions are always good for that. In fact, you may even want to consider using flash cards for this one. A lot of evidence is about being able to quickly spot the 7 rules that the hypo runs afoul of, and having the rules readily accessible in your memory is a huge help for that.
