The second and cheaper route is self-study: buy a good study guide, an Exam Cram, one or more practice tests, and...
pay for the exam, all for between $350 and 500. You can find local or online study groups to help you over the humps, but will end up doing pretty much everything for yourself to get ready.
It's you choice: go for it!
