the only thing that is missing from the working out section is that there are no answers.

Please note that this version is a student version and thus does not include answers. The level 7 book in the same series is the teacher version which does contain answers. Unfortunately, we do not appear to have a copy with answers at the moment. We will try to make the right version available as soon as it possible.

Kind regards,
