That's true to a point. without getting too technical these systems are designed with a specific charge to achieve the desired pressures. So yes, If your charge is good then your high and low sides will be right.
Of course other things can come into play that can cause innefficiency.

This is right from the chart link I gave you:
R-134a PressureTemperature Relationship Pressures shown in the charts are provided as a general guide and may not represent your exact readings. Ambient temperature is measured 2 inches in front of the condenser.
Go to the nearest hardware store and buy a $2.00 dial thermometer.
