I've been through all of the Phase 1 and found them quite useful. The only problem I've had in buying these courses (I buy the 5 units at a time) is that Audible doesn't provide the PDF reading exercises that are part of the lessons. I tried calling Pimsleur and they said that it was Audible's responsibility to provide the PDFs that are part of the course. In contacting Audible, all the customer service staff will do is give me links to the reference guide (a general description of how the 'Pimsleur Method' works) which are NOT the reading exercises that are supposed to be included with the lessons.
So Pimsleur won't help me because they say Audible (the one I bought all the courses from) *should* have the PDF reading and vocabulary exercises - between a 'rock and a hard place' on this one. My only suggestion is maybe one has to order directly from Pimsleur to actually get everything that is *supposed* to be included with these lessons.

Would you listen to Spanish Phase 2, Unit 01-05 again? Why?
To the reviewer who noted that the pdf is now included in the downloads, I just downloaded this because of this review, only to discover that the pdf is just 14 pages stating the method of teaching philosophy and contains nothing about the notes for the lesson.
Any additional comments?
Even though I am disappointed that there are no notes, in the past I have purchased and used this method of language acquisition and it is absolutely the best method! I owe the amount of Spanish I can now speak fluently to this method. I just got my hopes up that there might be additional materials that would help me to visualize the spelling that could be printed out. Overall, the way in which the method helps you to think in the language is superior, but it's still nice to have some written material at times.

Look nowhere else if you want to quickly progress in learning a foreign language. I do it for 30 min each day while going to work by metro (in fact, I do it a second time with the same lesson typically when going back home at the end of the day) and I could never imagine such a huge progress in starting to speak a language like Spanish!
The only alternative I consider as good to Pimsleur method is Paul Noble on Collins, but it’s complete course is limited to level 1 of Pimsleur. Given the complete course on Paul Noble can be acquired as one audiobook, I suggest you start on Noble and continue with Pimsleur level 2 (6 audiobooks)
