Lots of Questions...

What is a good reference for plant design and kinetics?
Any advise for studying plant design and kinetics?
Any good advise for organizing info to take into the exam?
If I'm not already familiar with Perry's reference book, is it worth getting for exam prep?
Is the Kaplan series worth getting in additiion to the PPI, NCEES books?

For plant design and kinetics, i used my college texts to supplement the ChERM.
I tabbed the hell out of the ChERM as I was studying, this way a helpful table was flagged as I using it to study.
If you don't already have a Perry's I wouldn't necessarily buy one, if you can borrow from a library or friend that would be better. Its more of a when you really have no clue. It is not a very user friendly book, takes some getting used to.
Can't help with the kaplan stuff either.
I used the ChERM and my college textbooks during the test. I brought my perrys but didn't use it.
To study i used the ChERM, the ChERM problems and the 6 minute book. Didn't know sample exams existed when I took the test (2006).
FWIW, I passed first attempt using what i listed.

Edit: I would also strongly urge you to get a practice exam from NCEES.

This, or Chemical Reaction Engineering by Octave Levenspiel. As far as plant design, the ChERM is probably good enough along with Perry's. I would suggest a good chemical engineering thermodynamics book (if there is such a thing) and a good unit operations book like Unit Operations of Chemical Engineering by Warren McCabe.
