        Musicroom Reviews

        This book is very useful for someone studying GCSE Music, however it should be more clearly put in the description that the book does not come with a CD. You have to purchase the tracks that accompany the questions separately from iTunes as an imix and it costs £35! That makes the whole package £50. If you're prepared to pay that then fine but make sure you understand before you order that you have to pay another £35 when you receive the book otherwise it is completely useless.
