Goodness gracious is this book awful. First off, it advertises that it has 4 practice tests. Of course, the fine print says 2 are available for purchase. FIne, I can live with that, but the diagnostic test is a joke. It's half the length of the real test, has repeated questions, and has typos in it. The second test is simply a collection of all the sample questions found in the reading, so if you can remember the answers, you will get them all right (not very helpful, I would say!). Further, the test is not in the format of the real test. That aside, the book is filled with errors. I cannot believe it was even edited. The organization is incredibly poor...for example, one of the sample questions asked about something covered in the next section. It is dense text with little help in wading through it. Trust me, if you want to pass, look for a different company. I bought this in the store because it was the only one in this subject. I now know why that is!
