I don't know why people rip on commercial outlines. Sometimes I think it is a way of showing status. Other times I think maybe they just know more than me.

The second is more likely, based on past experience.

But I will share that last semester a commercial outline in civil procedure and in criminal law pretty much saved my butt. Having never been a law student before, I didn't know up from down or where to begin. Reading the commercial outline section on, say, "actus reus" *before* doing the casebook reading saved me a lot of time, and (I believe) helped me to learn the material in a more complete, integrated way.
