Right, and the text I'm asking about is a text from the SRM syllabus. Have you ever studied for a preliminary exam using only the textbook listed on the syllabus? I personally haven't.

After doing the FAP modules, I'm not really sold on their value as a learning device. I'm particularly skeptical that the PA modules alone will adequately provide a candidate with enough practice, especially given the comments by the poster with ~2 years of experience in R who was piloting the modules. I would really love to be wrong about this though.
