Personally BPP for me - I have studied with them from the start. I do online live learning and find it so much better, You have the lectures and can re-watch anything you miss/don't understand. You also have video's of each chapter should you want to watch extra and you can email your tutor at any time.

I used both for F1 to F4. And Kaplan for the rest.
They are both very good. However, I found BPP to be quite wordy and very detailed.
Kaplan - Concise, to the point, easy to follow.
If you are the sort of person who doesn't have much time for a lot of reading, I would advise Kaplan.
They both cover all the topics. So choosing one over the other doesn't meant you will miss out on something. You may keep Kaplan as your main study text and BPP as reference for those areas where you feel you need more explanation to help you understand.
Exam kits for both are pretty much the same- they all just use questions from past papers on the website.
And it is the exam kit that is more important when it comes to preparing for the exams. As long as you know your concepts from the study text, it's the exam kit that will actually make you pass.

I used ATC, which is cheaper and in gold status, even though i don't like the new format of e-text, which i have to zoom in and zoom out in order to see clear the text, but i still love ATC very much. very very much
i found BPP write too much, basically it covers everything, and i don't have time to read everything and KP write too less, and i cannot find suffcient examples, but still the main point, anyway those two are expensive for me though.
it's up to you though

Opentuition is good resources, esp the flashcard, very essential to break the key point

the problem here is clearly the back up details.. overall it´s a good summary especially with the lectures but if you want to have more details to a topic (which is in most of the cases necessary to give a full answer to the exam questions) Opentuition provides unfortunately not in deep study texts..

Anyway.. as a summary and together with exam question I hope it was sufficient to pass F9 :D

I think BPP is by far the best in almost all the papers since their content are to the point and they explain almost every thing with good examples, plus its a very broad publisher good for both in depth study and a quick look through.
