@ Charlie - it's not that philosophy is scary. I don't think philosophy is that scary at all. It, in my opinion, takes some very critical thinking to even get by. Whilst I'm fairly critical, especially in case-based questions, philosophies is on a whole other planet. It takes some determination, reading, etc. The author of the textbook for this subject, Raymond Wacks says: "Jurisprudence students are typically bewildered and uninitiated" and that we "all struggle with the content of this subject" because, well, there's just way too much to know of, and as a second year subject, it's possibly the most difficult subject you'll do in a law degree. To be honest, though, it's not the most difficult. Sure, it takes a lot of reading because no one theorist is the same in any way, but that's really not what the subject is about. It's about developing your critical thinking, and I think sociology would be a perfect decision to make for college.
@ Harvey - thanks buddy. Questioning does help, I s'pose. It's the right questions I have to ask, which can be daunting. I've already completed the assignment for the subject, but the exam is in two weeks and your suggested plan is a good outline.
@ Sarah - thank you. I've been thinking about what I should do in the exam, and I've pretty much got it down pat (looking at the questions, their contexts are repeated every year), so I can pretty much just take in exam answers and hope to god they're on the same topic.
