    If you already know some of the stuff from the Kaplan books, then skip it. When I think I know a particular subject, I look at the questions at the end the chapter. If I think I can handle them, I'll take a stab at it. I'll review the material for the ones that I missed or guess on, then start the next chapter. I'm almost certain you will be able to do that for some topics. You can used the saved time to strengthen your weaker areas. If you can't do that for any of the chapters, then doing EK won't help you, because they are much more broad in their lectures. I feel that EK is good for review, not learning.
