Dressler is my study guide of choice in this area. Very concise, thorough, and accessible.

I stick pretty close to the casebook but I know I've been tempted to supplement with Robinson's Criminal Law Case Studies, which others have used to great success. Additionally, there are some good readers out there, including the Leo Katz, Michael Moore, Stephen Morse collection. In a different vein, Bob Weisberg is (I believe) editing the Crim Law Stories collection, which I'm sure will be very cool.

Dressler has a very good little Understanding Crim Law hornbook too, which sticks very close to the trajectory of materials in his great casebook. That has some predictable advantages and disadvantages, which is why I don't particularly highlight it for my students. I do think the student supps by LaFond and Richard Singer (and Laurie Levenson) are quite helpful.
