Do the readings, digest the material yourself, and forget the supplements.

Thanks for the advice.   I'm sure that works very well for you, but not for me.

Between law review, moot court, family, and classes, sometimes I need supplements to help me stay ahead.
Also, my E&E for Civ Pro, and my flash cards for Crim Pro and UCC helped me get really good grades last year.

Tax--JD tax classes are so basic that it's a waste of money to buy supplements. All you need to know is that the people who call it a code class don't know tax. At your level, just pay attention in class and realize there's such a thing as tax common law. If you know the tax common law with respect to gifts and crap like that, you will do well.

Secured--Gilbert works for me, especially if you have the Whaley casebook.

Bus Assoc--E&E is okay from my experience. I didn't think E&E was anything to get excited about so maybe someone will suggest a better resource for you. But that's what I used and with good results.
