This is the way to go. 
If you want to keep multiple sources in sources.list, you have to edit 
/etc/apt/apt.conf and put :
>APT::Default-Release "testing";
If you have problem on apt-get update add also this line :
>APT::Cache-Limit "100000000";

You can also edit /etc/apt/preferences for fine tuning of witch packages to 
auto-install auto-update…

then "cat /etc/debian_version" to check.
