Format: Spiral-bound
This quick-reference guide provides helpful answers to the many rules of music notation that are often variable or those situations that create doubt about proper principles of modern usage. The book covers notational rules that are absolute and those that are flexible. Users of computerized music typesetting software will find solutions to problems that the computer may set incorrectly or leave as variable. Even experienced notators will find quick references to those elements that are used infrequently and have escaped the memory. Above all, this concise reference book provides immediate answers without offering readers more than they really want to know.

Even though music notation software does most of this for you, your manuscripts are not perfect from a publisher's point of view, without applying the rules in this book.

This is great for many things, like a reference or a pocket book for a quick reference on common notational problems and practices. I would certainly refer to this as a great, in expensive, text on many issues such as note placement, accidental orders, "note stacking," and various other things. Great for students and professionals printing by hand or computer.

By Evan G. Cohen on June 17, 2009
Format: Spiral-bound
This book is a little to concise. It only gives the bare bones basics. So if you're a novice, it's a good handbook. If not, it's not worth the money, in particular if you do computerised notation.
