What Patent Prep Material Should I buy?

I have been trying to figure our for the last couple months which patent bar prep material I should buy.  
 
I will have 2 months to study for it, and during this time I will be working full time. Money is not the biggest issue, passing on the first try is. With that said, what do you guys think would be the best prep for me?  
 
Thanks for all your help!

I used PLI and passed in a little under three months while working full time.  It's possible that you could speed through the materials relatively quickly and focus on the actual exams.  Two months is cutting it short with any program, though, unless you aren't working.

Thanks for the info. Yeah, I have a feeling my plan of 2 months will be hard to do, but I am going to try to push through it.

I have another question. Is it better to get the at home study materials or a classroom course from PLI? Also what do you think of PRG's (Patent resource group's) patent review course?
 
Thanks in advance,

A classroom course is alright if you have a couple weeks you can set aside for intense studying, including (I think) 8 hours of class each weekday.  If you get the video lecture course, which is exactly the same content at the same price, you'll get to control the rate you move through the material.  I find this to be an advantage since there may be areas you find you need more or less time on.
 
From what I know, the PLI and PRG programs have comparable success rates, while their methodology varies.  I don't know enough about the PRG material to speak on it.  Usually you will find advocates of both programs when you ask for a comparison between the two.
