The CD has 500 of questions but they seem to repeat themselves alot,so you don't see all 500 questions There are questions with no answers showing and major spelling mistakes. There is no way of finding out what your weaknesses are. The book isn't bad but you must have time to be able to go through 800 pages. I do not recommend this bood at all.
