        Clear explanation of tetrachords, triads, names of scale degrees, primary triads and key relationships. Inclusion of I-IV-V7-I cadential progression in three inversions with each scale.
        I wish the relative minors followed the majors instead of being in their own minor scale section.

        Not quite what I needed as I was looking for a comprehensive book of chords. Perhaps I just don't know enough about music yet.

        Bought it as reference. Looks easy to follow, clearly set out and comprehensive. My teacher thought it looked good too.

        This is a good, thorough book of scales but ABRSM's complete book is more logically presented and easier to work with plus you know that the versions, fingerings etc are the what's required if you are doing an ABRSM exam.
