        I purchased this book to help me prepare for my Music Technology Examination so far I find the content to be of a good standard and contains relevant information. I would recommend this to book to anyone who needs help to prepare for examination. The price is good.

        Gives a great examiners mark scheme to work by for all units. Good information about microphones and placement in certain instruments. Little information or guidance of editing and mixing after recording. However it's a handy book if you're new to music technology and lays down a lot of basic knowledge that you need to know and helps guide you through all AS/A2 units.
