Default study manual recommendation sought

I'm looking for the IFM study product that places the heaviest possible emphasis on sample questions. A hypothetical product with 500 exam-relevant questions, an answer key and no exposition at all would be a delight.

can anyone recommend a product? tia

If you're only looking for questions and don't need any texts to accompany, look at getting ADAPT. CA has bundles that include lessons, should you decide you need it.

I used ADAPT along with other materials last November and thought that it made a difference in reinforcing the concepts. They've got a large bank of questions as well so I rarely saw the same question and that only occurred if I was stuck on a level for too long.
