      The Prep Test is an ideal stepping stone to Grade 1 for young beginners. It gives them a chance to work towards a test without the worry of failing an exam. Also it's good experience to perform simple pieces to an examiner.

      I wish the ABRSM would change the 2 test pieces: Boating Lake and Jogalong. Think of the teachers....same for at least 15 years!

      Brilliant resource for the ABRSM prep test. Contains all music required for the test and has space for the examiner to sign at the front.

      Thoroughly recommended for all pupils who have been learning the piano for a few months. A gentle introduction to the ABRSM graded system and the formal examination environment.

      A very well laid out book with a variety of sample pieces for practicing the aural/listening tests and the performance pieces are printed in larger easy to read notation. Everything you need for the Prep Test in one book.

      Great for nervous pupils or younger ones. Shame it's aimed at kids with childish design ALL over it but content is worthy of 5 stars I have adults who may use it so have to ignore the children plastered all over it!

      I am a little disappointed with this book as I think it is quite difficult and there isn't that much difference between this and grade 1. Why on earth you have to learn to play a piece from memory when you don't have to do this at grade 1 is a bit puzzling, especially as younger students can find learning to memory adds stress to the exam.

      This is brilliant to encourage a child to take a test for the first time. It gives excellent help with aural work and prepares them to eventually take Grade 1 exams. The great part about this is when they take the test they get a certificate the same day!! Highly recommended.

      The Prep Test is an excellent "stepping stone" onto more formal exams for young pupils and this book contains everything that is needed to prepare for the Prep Test.
