        You have to get it because there is nothing else.
        All my pupils have told me the actual tests are much narder and longer than the ones in this book.

        Gives current expected standards of tests used by ABRSM. Clearly laid out. The best!

        Useful for building confidence but of limited use because once you've played the test samples, playing them again wouldn't be sight=reading, would it? Of more use to a teacher with multiple students, I suppose.

        Very useful tool. Well presented and a good selection of specimen pieces provided. No complaints.

        This book gives the current level of tests operated by the ABRSM. I have various previous books but although they are useful the standard expected does vary. Clearly laid out. A tip - NEVER get your pupils to buy them - they no longer become sight-reading books! I know teachers who do this and it's so pointless!
