This review is from: Aural Training in Practice, ABRSM Grades 4 & 5, with CD: New edition (Paperback)
I know next to nothing about music, but to help my son with his grade 5, we got this book with CD. The book explained the standard questions you will be tested from grade 4 to grade 5, what you are supposed to do,then you can do the exercise focused on a certain question, for example: sight singing. The part helped us the most is the styling period.You got to read first, get a general idea about what you shoud focus on while listening to the piece and build up the vocabulary about what you are supposed to talk about.I found it's a lot easier, time saving(hence money saving) than listening to the teacher, picking up bits from his example.
The cd is recorded to high quality, much better than the one from the ABRSM exam pieces book.
Only hope they have a few more examples, or a mock test.
I am looking forward to grade 6-8 book.
