Many of my friends who used Kaplan, and not Goljan, got 99s.

Someone once told me that it's not about the books, but about who is reading the books. So any book would do as long as you study smart. Go with the book you feel more comfortable with.

what do you think about one learning the two all together if time is not a problem. do you thing it's advisable. would that be better of?

thanks in advance for you input.
