I teach AP Music Theory and this book allowed my students to be prepared for the Aural Skills portion of the test to the point that they all earned 4's and above.

Very good text. The book is very good in terms of variety of music. However, it is a little heavily built on the amount if work. That is good for repetition. This does help though with notating from just listening to excerpts! That is very beneficial!
