THE BOOK HAVE 2 CD's STICK INSIDE COVER ON THE LAST PAGE.
THE BOOK IT SELF EXPLAIN DIFFERENT TYPE OF QUESTIONARIES AND CD WILL GO THROUGH TO DO PRACTICE ON IT SO THE ONE CAN KNOW HOW TO MANAGE TIME WHILE THEY ARE TAKING EXAM.

ONE CD IS ABOUT LISTENING TEST PRACTICE AND ANOTHER IS ABOUT WRITING AND OBJECTIVES TYPE OF QUESTIONARIES.

USERE CAN HAVE ENOUGH PRACTICE BEFORE ATTENDING THE EXAM. ACCORDING TO MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE ON NEED 2 TO 3 DAYS ONLY TO PRACTICE THE EXAM WITH THIS BOOK. THE MORE PRACTICE YOU DO THE BATTER YOU HAVE CHANCE TO SCORE HIGHER.

Get this book if you're doing the PTE Academic, it has great explanations of how the test works, and lots of good examples. The CD has lots of practice too. I recommend you do all the practice in this book, and on the CD, that's more then enough to pass the test.
