Thanks for the advice plex... ebay locked up as I was trying to snipe a PLI set on ebay, ended up going for almost 1100 bucks sans DVD... that would make it 1550 with DVD, which means its only a couple hundred less than buying it new...

Crap, I am scared of tossing out $1500 on a course, and also spending all that time studying. I don't like to study anymore.

i'm gonna try and get registered to take it before the fall semester starts.  i'll plan on quitting my job maybe 8 weeks before i take it and use that time to study like it's a full-time job.  it'll be a nice break from working and the 200+ hrs of cramming can only help me get ready for law school.

I snagged a PLI set finally with the DVDs for 1350 on ebay.  The MPEP is laughably huge... like bigger than my phone book for a city of almost a million.

Gonna reformat my computer this weekend and then get all this stuff installed and set up to rock out on this.

I know what you mean, the MPEP fills my whole bookshelf! I just finished up the PRG course, and I am on the practice problems. Good luck studying!

No, Arizona is taking forever to finalize and confer my degree... I have my package put together with all my catalog descriptions of my classes and whatnot, just need the final transcript.

You send your crap in yet?
