    Handy easy quick guide to all the scales, scale shapes that relate to the exam. None really ordered it for a quick reference guide and that's what I got.

    Very clear with the tab and rhythms shown well. The pages with tips on how to play the song and how to play it in the style of the genre are very good.

    The book is as expected. I knew it since many of my students use it. As a result it was not something new.

    Rockschool never fail to deliver interesting and development teaching materials. Great stuff been using them for more than a decade. The fact that the grade pieces can be used in conjunction with their 'Hot Rock' books of famous 'wanna play' pieces completes the package. Good formula, thoughtful and challenging.
