What I think is better is going to be pretty worthless for you.  The E&E is completely different than the outlines, and as for the outlines, they're organized a bit differently, and have slightly different formats.

I'll take an E&E over a generic commercial outline any day, as I find the questions/answers helpful.  I don't like any of the commercial outlines.

If you're a 1L, asking this question NOW, it may be a little late in the game to even be figuring out the differences.  I suggest you go to your library or bookstore and take 10-15 minutes and flip through the outlines the E&E to see which is best suited to your learning style.

Read the E&Es throughout the semester so you just need to skim the cases when assigned in your casebook.  Use the Emanuels or Gilberts to help you outline to make sure you don't miss anything important.  The Contracts E&E hypos were very long and thus good for prepping for issue spotter exams.  I found the Torts E&E to be pretty usesless since the concepts in Torts were so easy to understand.  The other E&Es were helpful throughout

i have E and E's, legalines and gilberts, just in case.  E and E's are great for use throughout the semeseter, but they are good at the end too.  legalines and gilberts help u analyze the outlines and get all the important shite out

Chirelstein has a good book on contracts.
