I bought this book to help me with tenor clef but I have found the whole book amazingly useful. I started to learn the cello 18 months ago so it was really useful to go back to the beginning and then progress quickly to the more difficult stuff. According to my teacher I have greatly improved, probably because the book encourages lots of exercises, but they are fun not tedious.
