Question 2008 IMG with two kids

Hi everyone,
I am new to this forum, I would like to thank all of you who took time to share very interesting posts with other students. I graduated in 2008 , I started reading my 2006-2007 edition Kaplan lectures like 2 months ago , I have 2 kids with who it s hard to get continuous hours of preparation , none of the schedules seems to be working and I don't stick to them honestly , I was thinking about getting cram fighter application for my iPad !!
Please if anyway can give advices about my concerns please that would be really nice!!!

I am a 2006 graduate...I am in the same situation..and have a kid...I used to start and then few days later, i would just quit...But for the last month or so, i have committed myself to study and study only...In the beginning it was hard to maintain it, but in like 2 weeks of regular study ,and finally catching few words,it has become so interesting that I study almost 7 0r 8 hours a day...In last 6 years after graduation I had forgotten almost everything, but since i have started reading and watching kaplan DVDs , i am now able to recall...

For you I would suggest to do random question from the beginning at the end of the day,or just before you go to bed...Even if you get one correct, it will uplift you and u will feel like you can do it...Good luck.

and yes as kdm said...Try to get the new Kaplan books and DVDs.

I would suggest some offline qbank to start with because u will need money later on to buy qbanks at different stages. Also if u need PDF of 2010-11 KLN, just let me know.

i will advice you from my mistakes
commit your first 2-3 months reading kln with the videos alongside ur fa
(pls dont do any qbank now as that will frustrate you more and waste ur time)
make sure the kln u are using is same yr as the video(i will recommend 2010
since u can easly get the pdf & video too.if possible print out the pdf!)
by the time u finish all kaplan,i bet u will have some confidence in urself and then choose an easier qbank eg kaplan qbank.
goodluck

Unhappy It s not easy to get the material

Thanks for your valuable advices but the thing is I can't afford
Getting the 2010 books and videos . Kdm0101 was very nice and sent me the PDFs for Kaplan 2008, but I have them on my mobile device I can't really print them it is a lot
What I am willing to do is to study with the modest material I have even if it s old and update the informations by getting the latest version of FA And of course UW and q banks later on when I feel that I am ready for it!! Please everyone let me know what do u think ?????!!!!!!!If
