I have several issues with Behind The Wheel Spanish. The English speaker's voice is terribly monotonous. He sounds bored and almost annoyed. The lessons are very brief. To really learn them, you'll need to repeat them, but there are no track dividers, so you have to scan backwards to get to the last jump-off point. Also, the English speaker continually repeats annoying and useless phrases (my favorites: "Remember: an infinitive is just the dictionary definition of a verb" and "Learner, remember to always repeat after the speaker"), so you end up having to listen to them multiple times. As other reviewers have said, the lessons don't really build on each other. It hops from one thing to something completely unrelated. The accompanying booklet does not match what is spoken. Some spoken bits are skipped, and some words that are not spoken are added. It's almost like it refers to a different version of the recording.
On the plus side, it's very cheap.
