What else can be said about the Clarke book. It's been a standard in trumpet playign since it was written.
In my opinion, every trumpet player's shelf should include this and the Arbans book. After that, which way you go is entirely up to you.
This edition is clearly laid out, the manuscript is clear and easy to read, and I use it in my practice every day.

An absolute must! 16 April 2003
By John J. Hathaway - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is THE standard book for developing technical facility on the horn. The key to playing any instrument well is learning your way around the instrument, and this book is the best way to get there. Every serious trumpet player I have every met, including myself, has used this book and continues to use it. You will literally never outgrow this book. Go all the way through it, and then start over at the beginning at a faster tempo, and then do it again, and so on. If you use this book faithfully you will be astonished at how quickly your playing will improve. This book is one of the fundamental building blocks of playing the trumpet, no matter what style you play.

A "must have" book for all trumpet/cornet players 7 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Herbert L. Clarke is one of the most famous cornet soloists of all time. His lesson books have advanced the art of brass playing as much as anything else in brass literature. This book should be in every trumpet/cornet player's library, and it should be used on a regular basis to develop and maintain the player's technical skills.
Combined with Clarke's Characteristic Studies and Arban's trumpet method, the player will have enough of the right material to work on to the highest level of brass performance.

Excellent book of technical exercises for the developing trumpeter 25 Mar. 2009
By George Matthews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a student. My instructor is an outstanding professional, and he regularly gives me assignments from this book. I have been amazed how the exercises, if done correctly, have dramatically improved my skills on the trumpet. I highly recommend it.

A standard for any trumpet player 3 Jan. 2012
By E. Sikorski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a NECESSITY for any serious trumpet player. (Also, the Arban's book is the absolute MUST HAVE Arban's Complete Conservatory Method for Trumpet (Cornet) or Eb Alto, Bb Tenor, Baritone, Euphonium and Bb Bass in Treble Clef) The amount material in here is enough to keep you busy for years and years. I have personally been using this book since 9th grade and am now in my 30s. I recommend repeating exercises using various articulations, tonguing techniques, dynamics, octaves, etc. You will never outgrow this book. I find that the material in it can be used with almost any level player - from advanced beginner to professional. As a middle school director, I pick and choose different exercises and write them out for every band instrument. It helps everyone develop technical facility in ways not used in other methods.
