Yes, with a textbook that I'm working on I had similarly very high  
success rate. Where I run into problems is my collection of homework  
problems: they have lots of math, little text, and the same words  
show up repeatedly ("combining Eq. xxx with ...", "Additional  
data:...", ...). In such case, the misfires can  be frustrating: I  
click on problem 60 but problem 12 opens up. (At the moment, my hw  
collection inputs 73 files).
