With 54 essay questions and accompanying sample answers, The PPE: The Skill of Analysis is the ideal study tool for law students because it provides the most utility for the money spent. First-year students nationwide benefit from this book because they do not need to purchase six different supplements to practice their skills because The PPE includes nine questions for each of the core subjects of Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law, Real Property, and Torts.

The PPE also ensures students can effectively use the book throughout the semester. Most supplements randomly combine topics for each subject and students must wait until reading week to practice their exam-taking skills because the questions include topics from the beginning and the end of the course. The PPE strategically pairs commonly tested topics and presents the topics in the order they often appear on the syllabus.

Finally, the book avoids overwhelming students by focusing on a specific learning objective. Instead, the goal is to improve analysis, one of the most important skills in the legal profession, with concrete steps on how to execute the book's advice in real-life situations. The PPE includes a legal-analysis template, active-learning worksheets that walk students through the three-step process of analysis, and sample answers that use IRAC, headers, and paragraphs to mirror what the students should strive to achieve on their exams.
