    I bought a used set off of Ebay. They are quite big/heavy, and dry.. and expensive. Technically the lecture notes which you can buy here in Pakistan, aren't supposed to be sold without taking the Kaplan in person course. So in order to market/make more money, they put out the home study course. Its quite expensive, around $800 or so? Your not even supposed to resell it but people still do anyway on ebay, where you can get old editions (they essentially the same thing) for a lot cheaper.

    Based on what I've read though, the Kaplan videos along with the lecture notes are a far better use of your time, if you can get your hands on them. If you have 12 months to study, and your really weak, then I guess the home study course would be ok.
    Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.
