This brand-new addition to Barron's series of Advanced Placement test prep manuals presents a comprehensive review of music theory, followed by two full-length practice tests with all questions answered and explained. These practice tests include both aural and non-aural sections. The four audio CDs enclosed with the manual provide aural skill development prompts for both practice tests' aural sections, as well as material that complements exercises and examples in the subject review chapters. Topics covered in the review chapters include music fundamentals, harmonic organization, harmonic progression, melodic composition and dictation, relationship of key centers, harmonic dictation and composition, visual score analysis, contextual listening, strategies for harmonizing and sight-singing, and much more. Multiple-choice questions with strategies for test-taking success appear at the end of many chapters.

I teach the AP Music Theory course. I was so excited when this book came out. Not only do I have all of my students purchase this book, but I use it as a major part of the course work. The lessons are designed in a very organized manner and practices quizzes and tests are given and are in the same style as the AP Exam. The ear training part alone is worth the purchase. Plus, you get two practice exams with CD's. Not only do all of the quizzes and tests come with an answers key, there are explanations for every answer. This is a must have to both teachers and students in the course.
