Book was great for class, but the cds are pointless. Just burn them off someone else.

This is a text book that I needed to purchase for an intro to music class. While the book seems to be good so far, follows what the prof is teaching, the 5 CDs are almost useless and an important part of the book and class. I follow the CDs on my computer so that I can use the play list to be at the rght seclection. The play list on every CD has the play list for CD 4. It makes it very difficult to be in the proper track. When paying more than 100 dollars for an iten, you want it to be accurate.
