Hi,
So I was thinking of purchasing an electronics toolkit, but I need recommendations.
I'm looking to prepare for a second year physics lab (although my main reason in wanting to purchase a electronics toolkit is interest).
So my own research lead me to: http://www.makershed.com/Make_Electr..._1_p/mers1.htm

Does anyone else have better recommendations?

I'm mainly looking at developing stronger skills dealing with circuit elements, multimeters, capacitors, diodes etc.

Thanks in advance.
(Also note I'd rather not exceed a budget of $200)

If, in fact, you plan to do the experiments 1-11 it is designed for, then it is a good selection.
There is another kit for the later experiments.

But you still need basic tools, like this: http://www.makershed.com/Make_Electr...it_p/mkee1.htm
