Are full lecture PDFs available anywhere as opposed to the 5+ separate 1 page PDFs they're broken into on the videos page?

I'm pretty sure that's not available. You can watch the video as an uninterrupted one-hour lecture, but it doesn't appear that notes are available for those lectures as opposed to the shorter segments.

That's really too bad... it's such a waste of time to have to download a separate PDF for every single page of notes. The best solution may be to bail on the scholar version of the course and use the older, better formatted one I just found: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/18-01-single-variable-calculus-fall-2006/lecture-notes/

Ah, I wasn't aware those notes were available. I believe they'll match up well with the content in the scholar version, though they aren't keyed to the same arrangement of sessions. Statistics on courses offered via online video indicate that few students will tolerate long videos. I assume that's part of the thinking behind segmenting the course as they've done in the scholar version. Some people find the segmenting a distraction and prefer to watch the lecture straight through, and you can do that also either streaming them or downloading them to watch offline. To me, the biggest advantage of the scholar version is the addition of recitations, most of which provide useful practice in working with the ideas and some of which offer content that fills in a gap created when the professor relied on material in the textbook or in a homework assignment to cover a topic. If you switch to mainly using the other version, I'd encourage you to return to the scholar version for the recitations. There are other features added to the scholar version, such as the mathlets, but the recitations are where I've found the most value.
