Complete First Certificate Student's Book with ans&hellip by Guy Brook-Hart

As noted by others, the student's book is not complete at all - no audio cds were included, and had to be bought separately - even worse, the book and the cd tracks don't always correspond - the Unit 2 'Speaking' track for example is simply absent from my copy, although the transcript appears as normal in the key.

Had I known the poor quality of the info and the useless guides in this book, I would never have bought it. It might the missing manual, but there is a great deal of missing information in it, particularly in the 'import' section. The author just skips through the process without explaining anything, with the result I still cannot import the way I want to, i.e. the way the guide tells me to do; thanks to the inadequate 'preferences' info provided here. Do not get this book, find a friend with a Mac instead, or just stop the first person you see, and they'll probably be more helpful than this sorry excuse for a book.
