    "Well, received this with excitement only to find that not all the pieces on the syllabus are on the CD. Then had to scrabble around finding a recording of the others (on youtube and spotify) so that I could make my choices for the exam. At this level you really need to choose pieces you're really really liking or you'll never practice them enough. I eventually chose, guess what, the 3 pieces not on the CD and now have to practice without the accompanying CD (or pay for accompanist). After coughing up more than £20 was very disappointed. Come on ABRSM, if you're going to do these CDs, include all the options. If they won't all fit on 2 CDs it would be better to charge more for putting them onto 3 than simply omit some."
