If you remove the coil pack and look at the underside, you may see some small cracks. If you do, it's junk. If you don't, it may still be ok. Often failed coil packs have tiny cracks in them which allows moisture in and causes the problems. You usually notice the problem more in the morning, when the car has been sittin overnight and moisture can accumulate, or when driving in wet weather. Often, it can be duplicated by spraying water on the coil with the engine running. It'll often start to miss when you do that, indicating a coil problem.
