    Hey everyone,

    so I'm gettin ready to purchase my books to start preparing for the test, heres what I have so far, in addition to a PR course Im beginning in April. PS. this is for the august administration.

    EK 5 Vol. Complete Study Package (6th Edition)

    EK 101 VR Passages Book

    EK Complete Biology Review Book

    Ek Complete Physics Review Book

    I'm good for chem, and therefore will not be purchasing a book for it, my class materials have prepared me well enough.

    Also, any advice on what books to add or how to approach a study plan for this test before I start the class and while I am enrolled in the class would be really awesome, thanks and merry christmas

    EK bio and phys review books come in the study package.

    Are you talking about EK 1001 for Bio and Phys?

    I don't want to spend your money for you but a good addition would be the Auto Osmosis CDs. The teaching is really good & pretty funny. They're an especially good addition if one drives alot. I ended up listening when I normally would listen to the radio,

    Thanks Brett, I didnt know they came with the study package. I wasnt talking about the 1001 books, but the review ones. Maybe Ill pick up the 1001 instead since they come with the 5 vol set. Do you know what else comes with the 5 vol set, amazon is pretty darn vague.

    THanks for the advice lindy, hopefully if I manage to get some more cash I might be able to afford it, but as of now not yet!

    Bio 1001 I hear is worth picking up since it is passage based. Verbal 101 is a must.

    $200 vs. $1500 Kaplan is decent savings.
