More on “Poll Results: How Do You Look Up a SEC Rule?”

Below is some member feedback on my poll results regarding how folks look up SEC rules:

– I have gotten used to using the CFR, even though it’s only updated once a year. I figure I keep up with Corp Fin stuff enough that I know where recent changes are. I teach with someone from a big firm and she is confounded when I use the CFR.

– Back in my youth, even the lowliest green goods associate at Big Law got a huge 7-volume set of CCHs. It was full of annotations and references and regulatory history and no-action and interpretation cites that were helpful, especially when you didn’t know anything. Not sure if those are still around, but so much more information is readily available (like on this site) that I imagine it isn’t used much anymore due to a hefty price tag.
