I received the product in a reasonably timely manner and gave it to my wife to prepare for her TOEIC test. All was going well, until she got to the practice tests. I don't recall seeing anywhere that you had to buy the audio CDs separately. It comes with one, but that only covers the pre-practice test, or whatever its called. On top of that, I have been unable to find any retailer that sells the Complete Audio kit from within the US. My wife said its a good book, but should really include the audio for ALL of the practice tests. Yeah, I could read the audioscript to her, but we thought the whole point of having an audio CD included was so that she could listen to that, and not me.

Overall, not a bad book, but again, should include all of the audio on the CD(s).

I bought this book as well. This book may be good but there is no all audio. Even I wrote a letter to Amazon and Longman, nobody responded.
By the way where can I find complete Audio CD?

Format: Paperback
This book includes an audio CD of Listening Comprehension Review
which is a part of the Listening practice.
But NO CD is included for other part of Listening practice
and the two complete practice tests in the book.
I was a little disappointed since I expected I can go through
the complete practice tests twice before I take an actual TOEIC test.
It seemd we have to buy other CD, Complete Adio Progran (0-13-199308-9),
which I couldn't find at amazon.com.

This is not bad book but,
you should understnd before you decide to buy this book.

Brazenly deceptive advertising! I WAS a loyal customer of Longman's; now, I trust their products no more.

I am an ESL teacher/tutor. I will no longer recommend Longman as the "Go To" publisher for ESL books.

It's the same complaint as other reviewers here. The content here is just so-so. But the audio for the practice tests in the book are sold separately(?!?!?!). Who's going to buy the extra audio CD for $60-80?

To the publisher: You would have done better selling the COMPLETE package at a higher price than to have an outrageous markup for the separate audio. Really, was this scheme worth losing customers over?

I am very diasppointed with this book and disgusted with the publisher's chicanery.

I recommended the Longman TOEIC series to a student (used to teach with the Deborah Phillips TOEFL texts in the past), only to hear back from her that the "audio CD" included for this text doesn't contain most of the listening practice section. Moreover, those wanting the audio for said section must purchase something called the "Complete Audio Program" separately...only, they are no longer selling it! (Spent the last hour trying to find someone anywhere selling even a used copy...to no avail.) I.e., you can't use almost 20% of the book as is! What a complete ripoff!
