Here's a scenario - You are being told a very boring story told by a very belligerent person. You may have been forcing yourself to pay attention at the beginning but then you lose interest and concentration. When you then get back into it, you are so terribly lost and disinterested and totally unable to pick up the thread of the conversation. Consequently, you slowly lose the will to live. This was Land law. After weeks of struggling to grasp all my recommended Land texts and lecture notes, I was about to give up on Law due to the feeling of ineptitude and deflation I experienced in trying to tackle this core subject.
Most texts and lectures concentrate on areas of Land law which make no sense until the end of the course - you don't actually see the relevance of the principles and statutory provisions you are learning and how they fit in ie you cant 'see the woods for the trees'. Aprils book helps by giving you the foundation of land law at the beginning, in such an easy comprehensible and engaging way, so you get to see the woods first. Even if you lose concentration, and come back to it, the thread is never broken because of that foundation. Result: Land law becomes like counting to 10 backwards!
PS - I got a distinction in Land law! Thanks April :)
