I purchased this book/CD combo shortly after purchasing my alto saxophone. The book and CD combo is great because the CD brings the lessons in the book to life. You can get a chance to hear how the lesson/notes 'should' sound and then you try to replicate what you hear on the CD. The book is well organized, has plenty of clear pictures and is written in very simple descriptive language. Overall I think the CD/book combo works well but I'd suggest using this in combination with an instructor.
