There are three types of Study Aids. The first will be discussed here.

Often these are “keyed” to a casebook, which means the order of cases and topics in the study aid will be the same as your particular casebook.  If a study aid is keyed to a casebook, it normally will say “Keyed to (author name)” on the cover. A keyed study aid is nice because it saves a little time finding a case, but it is not always available, nor is it necessary.
