I obtained this book only after having sat my Civil Litigation and Evidence exam on the 2010/11 BPTC course. I saw this book and thought that it would make a useful easy-access reference for the future - and indeed it is a great "memory-refreshing" work.

There is, however, real value in this book as a revision guide. I thoroughly recommend it to anybody about to commence the BPTC. Civil Lit & Evidence is generally considered the most difficult module and this book condenses the relevant, essential material from the very heavy White Book(/s)into an easy to follow format with a very logical structure.

For anyone embroiled in the BPTC, or contemplating taking the damm course, then this book really helps you get to grips with the procedural rules quickly. I only wish one day someone will write an equivilant book for the criminal procedure part of the course. The book eases up the ball ache of getting your head round procedural matters, thus allowing time to home the skills of advocacy which, I guess, is why most of us want to wear silly wigs in a professional capacity anyway. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED

Great book. If you're taking the BPTC, buy it.

Civil Litigation is the graveyard of BPTC students. It is by some distance the hardest - and, frankly, the dullest - module of the course. If you get to know it well enough Be Civil! will make passing ten times more likely. It's not a substitute for doing the coursework; but as a guide and revision aid it's priceless.

My advice:

- buy the book at the start of the course and read it quickly without bothering with detail: just get acquainted with the broad topic areas and the terminology;
- then read the relevant chapters again carefully as you cover the ground on the course. At this stage cross-refer to the CPRs and PDs etc and read the suggested cases (the cases are chosen to be short and as interesting as cases about such things as limitation periods and pre-action disclosure can ever be: don't expect a laugh riot);
- finally, and most importantly, use it for revision. Read the book again and again. Mark it up, underline etc. And re-read the suggested cases.

The same recommendation applies to the other Dunn masterwork, It's Criminal! (although that book needs better proofing - and there's a footnote howler where Harold Shipman is confused with Fred West).

All in all, this is the best money you'll spend trying to become a barrister.

The book is great, but naughty Amazon/publishers not to (a) mention that the new edition was only weeks away and (b) sell it at the full price knowing that it's I delete within weeks.

However the above is no reflection on the author or content. It's a very helpful aide memoire and highlights important bits. But for all you BPTC students it's not a substitute to Sime's or the WB!

A very useful, concise book on the basics needed to pass the BPTC. It is easy to read and quick to refer to when testing yourself prior to the exams. A real 'must have' for exam preparation.
