This is a good set, but it's not magic

This is necessary for removing the screws that hold on the rotors in Hondas and other import makes. Yes, there are other tricks you can use, and I've used most of them, but this will save you a lot of time every time you do brakes.
This tool is pretty tough, and you can beat on it all day and you won't scratch it. The carrying case is a nice touch, it would have been nicer with a metal box, but I guess we don't do that in the 21st century.
As others have mentioned, you put it in the screw head. Twist it in the direction you want the screw/fastener to move, and strike it with a hammer. Do measured constant blows as they are more effective than trying to hit it as hard as you can. Check the bit is in the hole *every time* as it will want to jump out. And of course, use penetrating oil. It makes a huge difference.
Finally, buy extra bits, especially the Phillips bits; you will crack the tips off, guaranteed.
