Questions & Answers: Torts offers a thorough review of torts that fits with all versions of a typical torts course. It provides an effective review of doctrinal material at relatively low cost in both time and money. The thorough index and table of contents enable users to easily locate any topic in the torts syllabus. An extended practice exam chapter, which does not announce which topics are covered, gives users the option of "hiding the ball" when testing themselves.

The principal technology of this book is the multiple choice question. Each one gives four alternative answersand with no evasions like "all of the above" or "B and C only"along with explanations that have been road-tested with torts students for utility and clarity. In recognition of bar exam and academic support considerations, the fifth edition has increased the percentage of questions that are multiple choice, while retaining short answers that give users a chance to put doctrine into their own words.

Some questions are relatively easy, a few relatively hard. Many questions are written as anecdotes with human characters, to simulate the case method of instruction, others ask about abstract points. Although core doctrine fills most of this book, it also includes jurisprudential material like economic analysis and "policy" questions. The index labels these jurisprudential questions as "theory/policy" for ease of identification.
