Is Apostol's Calculus a Good Book to Use for GRE Math Subject Test Prep?

I am going to take the math subject GRE, and after looking at the main topics (calculus, diff eqns, linear algebra, prob, and algebra), I got to wondering if Apostol's text on Calculus might not be a bad book to work from (since it contains calc, prob theory, linear algebra and diff eqns). I am not sure if this text has the depth I would need, but past posts suggest that working problems from Stewart is good practice for the calc part and I can't imagine Stewart would be more advanced than Apostol (although the former might have more problems). Was wondering if anyone having experience with the tests could confirm my notions. Thanks, Matt
