The problems on the actual exam were much more difficult to parse through.
S. Curry
For both the E and the B math tests, I found a much better study guide online in the form of Sparknotes Test Prep.
Hollan
It was not written by someone that has actually taken and passed the exam.

I am engineering grad with lots of math background and had to pass the WEST-E to become a HS teacher. This was the only guide available, and I believe, still is. This is a good refresher of the basics, but will not prepare you for the WEST-E Mathematics exam in any useful way. The actual test is quite difficult (and long!). On a scale of 1-10, with the difficulty of the real test being a 10, this guide is about a 2 or 3. The practice test is straight-forward in this guide, whereas the real exam questions are all word problems. I can tell you a graphing calculator will not help you much on the actual exam; you actually have to know the material. I love my TI calc, but barely touched it accept maybe to do some basic operations any calc can do. I passed the actual exam, but would not have passed if I only reviewed this guide. This guide must have just been thrown together to make a buck. It was not written by someone that has actually taken and passed the exam.

In preparing for a switch in careers, from Engineering to Teaching, I looked for a review manual for the High School Math test. This was at the time Washington state was transitioning from Praxis to WEST-E, so I started with the Praxis manual and then got this WEST-E book.
In summary, this manual appeared to be a last minute effort by the publisher to get something on the street and lacked the coordination between the publisher and state authorities to really cover the new tests. I read both books, and worked all of the problems in each and felt OK before the exam, but after the exam, did not have a good feeling.
First off, the Math test is now called 26, changed from 61, don't know if that makes a difference. The study manual had one practice exam, with 80 problems, the exam has 120 and I didn't figure that out until very late in the exam. There was no differentiation of what formulas were 'given' in the exam, and the ones you really had to memorize, which would have been nice. The were many types of problems on the exam that were not adequately covered in the manual, the exam problems seemed to be much more involved, not straight forward questions at all. It makes me wonder what they were trying to test.
I did pass the test, but it wasn't pretty. Book gets a D.

I found this guide to be the less helpful of the two references I used. I first purchased the Praxis guide then the XAM guide(this book). I believe neither were adequate in preparing me for the test.

In the Content Knowledge section for each subarea, there is very little reference and overly simplified problems to work through. The problems did not help me with the test as the examples were explicitly worded. The problems on the actual exam were much more difficult to parse through.

The sample test was a poor sample of what the actual test would consist of. There were obvious typos in both presentation of the problem as well as the explanation of the solution which was disappointing like 2/5 = 1.4.

After downloading the sample test from the WEST website I began using the Praxis guide more as a reference and did not use this XAM guide at all. Also, the information regarding the test timing was also not correct and you should rely on the WEST website for all that information.

This is not a good guide to prepare you for the test.
