Definatly recommend using this as your first and possibly only means of beginner Turkish.
I would deffinatley recommend this pack
So far so good, top purchase!
Having spent time in Turkey I realise that learning the local language isn't essential for a tourist, it maybe adds to the general perception that the culture is somehow more exotic than it really is and the basic words being spoken in Turkish are a kind of embellishment to the experience.
For the purposes of acquiring some token spoken language, this book is great and the grounding that it supplies to you in the absence (or in collaboration with a teacher) is invaluable. In addition to the use of a book you could attempt to use the online learning program "livemocha" which I have found to be a good program for supporting learning.
