What should I know about tractate Bava Kamma as this part of daf yomi approaches? Any tips to keep in mind while studying it? It's the start of a new Seder of Talmud so it may have a different manner of teaching that I might be unaware of.
First you can learn most verses concerning BK in parashat Mishpatim, with Rashi. In a second step mishnayot with Bartenura. A second time parasha with Rashi and Mishnayot with Bartenura and Ykar Tosfot Yom Tov. In BK, specially for the 7nt chapter the Gemara contain a lot of drashot. If you know the verses it will be easier.
