    I love this book! I use it with my french horn students to work on playing in bass clef. We play a little bit out of it every week and use it as part of the warm up routine.

    I had been practicing these etudes from the earlier Rochut edition. There have been some subtle changes in some of the etudes, in tempos and notes. Nothing major, but it did trip me up a little while playing through the book. Playing with the piano accompaniments CD is especially good...

    as an intonation check, although it is often helpful to make printed copies of the accompaniments for reference. Overall, I have learned more from the Bordogni etudes than from other books.
