    Less than what you paid for....

    At a first glance, it looks like a great book, with adequate pactice material including CD-ROM. But as soon as you start using it, you'll find that not only all the audio material for the book is missing (the content in the CD is totally different from that in the book, so don't get fooled), but also there're too many mistakes in the book that mislead you. So, if you are not so picky about what you get and have no other better options, it's an OK reference.
