I have been very happy with Leonard and Gold. The students love the accessibility of the text. The questions are programmed-learning style, progressively more complex. I've coupled it with the Nicolas Federal and State (here, Texas) rules book, which has great value-adding comparisons and case notes.

The best evidence casebook is George Fisher's Evidence; it does a commendable job at explaining the nuances of evidence law.

Is Green, Nesson, and Murray the standard here? There's this from Ann Althouse: "I harshly critiqued that [earlier] edition of Green and Nesson in "The Lying Woman, The Devious Prostitute, and Other Stories from the Evidence Casebook," 88 Northwestern Law Review 914 (1994). That's not available on line, but it makes excellent reading. . . . I have no quarrel with later editions of Green and Nesson's book, at least some of which included passages from my article."
