As a resource it's very useful. However, some of the questions require 2 tracks. Somehow, the track for question 32 is missing: there should be 38 tracks in total but there are only 37 available to download.

This book is really useful, it saves the time of having to make your own tests, however it would have been much more useful to have had it a year ago and I'm disappointed that Rhinegold couldn't get this ready for the start of a course that they knew was coming. The tracks are available to download from iTunes as an iMix, but this works out at over £30 to get all the tracks and then you have to cut them for it to be useful, why couldn't they make a CD? The classroom activities at the start of the book are really useful and a good way to learn the musical vocabulary.

I would like to purchase this book as I am an NQT teacher, but find that buying the book is not the end of the job. The downloading of tracks and then having to cut them into the correct order is timeconsuming of the highest order. Why not a cd? Oh, I know. itunes seems to be in league with Reingold to get as much money out of schools as possible. Come on, make a cd!!

Whilst this book I am sure has the potential to be useful, it is probably more designed for teachers than individuals or parents of children studying this GCSE. The album of tunes needed to do any of the exercises is no longer supported by iTunes as an album so you have to download each one separately. Several of the exercises are for class based activities. However will persevere and if we feel it is worth it in the end may come back and re review.
