Default Raynox DCR-250 vs Hoya Close-Up Macro Set

I got a SX10IS and I want to learn about Macro photography. I saw these 2 items but I have no idea whether i need both of them of one of them is enough.
If I can take one then which is better ? Raynox DCR-250 Super Macro or Hoya Close-Up Macro Set ?

Raynox and other high end macro lenses have dual achromatic element. THis controls chromatic aberration and preserves the sharpness of the image. The Hoya and other cheap sets do not correct for CA and are not as good.

Well then I guess I ll goto the Raynox DCR-250. I have seen many positive reviews about it but also many has said that its not easy to use and understand.
