It seems that TY is coming out with new editions of their series 2010-2011, so I can't speak to the future versions.
The "all-round confidence" starts the student off with complete sentences in a rather advanced dialogue, and of course it's true that the speakers spreken te snel .
It's also true that the narrators are speaking British English, so if you're not from the UK, it's almost like learning 2 languages ;-) Given that there is a preference in NL for UK English speakers, it's not such a bad thing.
I had my Dutch friend look it over, and he gave his approval for the slang and other bits of advice. So, even with the 2003 edition, it's still relevant.
I would have preferred a foundation with more basics, but that was my choice and not the fault of the beyond-beginner kit reviewed here.
Having gone through the entire thing, I am pleased with it and only wish that it could have been more encompassing (ie. I know how to start a salutation in a letter, but not end it).
P.S. IMHO it seems pointless for reviewers to mark down a rating of a product based on shipping issues or unreasonable expectations (ie. this is not a "in your car" type product, or they critise the book-only version as they realise the CDs would have been helpful).
