      Has plenty of practice pieces for the exam, clearly set out for ease of reading. If played correectly they sound OK too! Using this book has really helped some of my exam candidates.
      It's disappointing that every few years the ABRSM make the sight reading standard easier. No moving of hand positions for grade 2 now. I know that many students find sight-reading hard, but the solution is to do more of it and wait longer to take the exam, not to simplify the standard. However, since ABRSM are competing against other exam boards which do the same, I guess the economic pressure wins out in the end.

      Always good to practise as much sightreading as possible with pupils prior to their exams. This book is an exam life saver!

      Attractively presented format for students to practice what is not usually their favourite aspect of music learning.

      A good tool for providing unseen work, but not really helpful in teaching sight-reading.

      A very helpful book in preparation for Grade 2 piano exam. It has helped build my confidence as it allows practice at home outside of lessons.

      I bought this for use in conjunction with the 'Joining the Dots' sight reading book of the same level. Good for exam preparation, and as it's ABRSM you can be assured it will be appropriately levelled.
