Everything seems to be working. The breadboard works fine for small projects. The jumper cables are flexible and work, but quality varies. There is no documentation included with the parts. However, I found this part listing on the NKC Electronics website :
Qty Part 1 Small breadboard (white, blue, red, green or black) 1 Light-dependent resistor (LDR) 1 Tactile switch 1 5mm Red LED 1 5mm Green LED 1 5mm Yellow LED 1 5mm Blue LED (transparent) 1 10K resistor 2 1K resistor 4 220ohm or 330ohm resistor (for LEDs) 1 IRF520 MOSFET transistor 1 1N4007 or 1N4004 diode 1 70-pcs jumper wire pack
The kit is exactly as advertised. Parts are durable enough to be used for real Arduino "builds" and not just these initial learning projects. The book is simply not needed as the Arduino website(s), which are many and spread all over the internet, have all the pictures and project descriptions in much better detail than in the book.
