        Handy easy quick guide to all the scales, scale shapes that relate to the exam.
        None really ordered it for a quick reference guide and that's what I got.

        RockSchool have since brought out a significantly cheaper book, without CD, but where you can download the songs - In my opinion better value.

        Personally don't like very many of the songs, much prefer the one's in HotRocks 5 (which I think is fab)
