What do you recommend for tool sets?

The instructor at the junior college where I'll be taking basic and advanced auto repair classes gave me a heads up that I should buy my tool set - sockets (5/32"-1" and 5-20mm), wrenches (1/4"-7/8" and 9-19 mm), ratchets (1/4", 3/8", and 1/2"), and pliers sets.

What tool brands/kits do you recommend and not recommend?

Any experience with having to warranty tools?

For example, I hear Snap-on is really good, but really expensive.

I like the idea of an all-in-one kit to reduce running around town to pinch pennies and to have a portable case. I would store the tools in a locker, then move them over to the work area up to 200 feet distance.

I also see a big Craftsman kit on sale for $200, but am not sure about the quality and durability of the made in China Craftsman:
