The First Year and Upper Level Review Books are for law students.  ALL of the others are for graduates who are preparing for the bar.  I use the upper level book religiously.

I'd ask current 1Ls at your school what prep books or supplements you should use.  It usually always varies from prof to prof and you're much better off getting a supplement that closely mirrors what your prof teaches. 

That being said, I think the E&E are the most generic and useful supplements - especially for Civ Pro.

i've got the barbri 1l review, personally i thought my bad notes were better....i only used it for civil law property, civ pro, and obligations though. so maybe the other sections were more helpful.
