There are some mistakes in the practice tests (I took the upperlevel), but the practices and the sessions and the planning that they give you is very helpful. They give you a vocabulary list and a kind of schedule on which part of which section to do on what day. They only provide one practice test for your level, so that was the downside. Although it said that it offered "5 full length practice tests" I am only able to use one that is fit for my level. Overall, this is one of the best books i've used (as compared to petersons and kaplan)
