          Tackles scales from various angles, which means you learn more thoroughly rather than just relying on finger memory. Also the variety encourages you to practise .
          Good value for money as all the scales etc for each grade are also given at the back of the book.
          Check the scales at the back are correct before letting your student learn them - I have found 1 misprint so far ( grade 3, D minor melodic should be C# in first octave). Also inconsistency in writing in accidentals in minor scales could lead to confusion ( when in the same group of quavers on the turn the accidental is assumed but put in at the lower octave)

          excellent for scales. it gives you all scales and arpeggios for up to grade 3 and scale studies. it even has areas to write and finsh of writing your own scales. it is great for exams and has studies needed for the trinity exmas. recomend this to anyone that is taking an exam or just wants to touch up on thier scales. 5* much better than i thought it would be. tip: get this as early as possible as it is helpful for grades 1-3.
