Working well for me,
This review is from: Vietnamese, Q&S: Learn to Speak and Understand Vietnamese with Pimsleur Language Programs (Quick & Simple) (Audio CD)
I had to listen to the first lesson about 10 times, but so far the rest have been much easier, since each builds on the last. I've learned some Mandarin already, so I'm used to listening for tones, but Vietnamese has more of them, and this set does a good job of teaching them. Yes, the vocabulary you learn is limited, but this is an introductory course, so how much can you really expect? The tones are the most important thing to learn in the beginning with a tonal language, in my opinion. One thing I do wish they had though is maybe a card that relates the sounds to the letters in the Vietnamese alphabet. Some of those relationships are not at all obvious to a native English speaker.
