This is purely my opinion but I agree -- I think Mind Share is overpriced. It's entertaining for sure but it doesn't seem quite as comprehensive as I would have liked. Right now I'm using the "CCNA Flash Cards and Exam Practice Pack" and I think it offers a better value. It has 1400 questions (700 in print, 700 you can go through on the computer) and quick reference sheets. Topic material covers both ICND 1 and 2.
I'm not sure what the price would be abroad, but I got mine on amazon for $39 bucks, no tax, and free shipping. Well worth it.
