This book contains 45 short pieces of music for the sight reading tests. Students will have a short period (half a minute) to look through the music before performing, so it is important that they have practice at playing unfamiliar music in various different styles. The specimen tests are representative of those expected in the exam and include lots of different styles. As always, the ABRSM books are clearly laid out and this gives essential practice for the Grade 5 exam.
The whole set of these is very useful to get your sight reading up to scratch. My progress was slow, but by the end of book 4 both my piano teacher and I can see a real improvement. It is worth keeping working at it, one exercise a day.
