The audio CD does not have 'all the exercises in the student book' It has only the check yourself. This is not helpful if you want to study by yourself.

I am a Private English teacher in Mexico and I have been using this book in my classes. The results are amazing. Fluency boosts to a higher level. I tried it myself first -because I am a native Spanish speaker- and it has helped me hear the sounds of the English sound system. Sounds I had never heard before. I am thankful for this book. And so are my students!
