SIE Exam and Series 7

I'm switching career paths from Auditing/Accounting to banking (ideally PWM), I already registered for the SIE exam.

From those who have studied, what prep material do you recommend?

I saw the WSO materials for $59, are they worth it or should I just pay the self study cost of $199 for Kaplan? I will begin studying in 3 days.

Thank you!
