You don't own the rights to the Kaplan materials, thus, it's illegal for you to sell them.

If paying for them as part of the course doesn't grant ownership then what does?

Buying the copyright/licensing. If you buy a CD do you now own the right to comercially produce copies for a profit? No.

If you buy a CD you own the right to re-sell the product for a profit.

True. Bad example I suppose.

But read the fine print/copyright discussion in the book. It will say something about how you're not allowed to re-sell the books, profit from their use etc.

Sorry my explanation isn't great, give me 3 years of law school and I'll get back to you.

Reselling =/= commercial production.

Also, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobbs-Merr ... _v._Straus

I am, of course, not a lawyer, but a blanket statement that reselling books is illegal is demonstrably false.

Not books in general. But these test materials, yes. Whether or not my explanation is a good one, it is illegal.

Meh, you could always sell them on amazon if TLS is going to give you too much shit about it ... they don't seem to think reselling them is illegal :?
