Does anybody actually buy the listed texts for Course 1?
What about solutions manuals for Course 1 texts - anybody buy those?

I only bought a couple of texts. Used my calc book from college. Ordered a couple of the prob and stats books. And, I got the study manuals. I did get the solutions manual to one of the prob and stats book.

The "Risk Management" stats book is great. THe other prob and stats book (The "Fundamentals..." one by Ghahramani) wasn't the greatest. Actex study manual sucked, but the McGannon one was worse. Best study manual I had was the Averbach/Mehta one. EXCELLENT.

I only bought the Averbach/Mehta study manual and it is very good. The texts might help if you have never had the stuff in class. A Probability book might help me but I feel the study guide is very good at explaining things and have only found few things that I need more in-depth studying.
