        Useful. CD is great for exam prep.
        Could do with some new material from the ABRSM. Would keep the teachers interested, if nothing else.

        Good easy to follow intructions and helpful guiding points on introducing aurals. You would be able to use this book even if you had only a small amount of musical knowledge

        Excellent aid to practicing aural skills. I have found it invaluble in preparing my students for their exams. The information provided in the book is well presented and helpful.

        Very useful for students to practise with the CDs, as well as being helpful to teachers without the use of a piano/keyboard.

        Excellent - I wanted to learn about the aural tests quickly for an exam - really clear, direct instructions including the exact lingo from the examiner. Also very useful to have all of the egs in the book and the accompanying CDs.

        I have used this book with my 2 children to practice for grades 1 and 2. It is good as it mirrors what to expect in the exam word for word, with plenty of practice tracks. It is also good it covers grades 1-3, so although the book may seem a bit expensive, it has lasted us a long time as we still have grade 3 to go!
