    for those that have been through the book - is it a case of working through the chapters as they are in the book, or are there sections that can be "jumped to" and others you can go back to? I realize it depends on one's own strength/weaknesses, but for a new student, what would be your recommendation?

    Thanks for reading!

    You can skip around, sure. I doubt anyone learns it going straight through. I mean, if you're learning the A major scale, you'll want to hit all the A scale exercises in all the various hand positions, your thirds and fifths exercises in A, etc. before starting another key.

    I certainly didn't learn it straight through, that's all I can say and I doubt anybody does.
