For the sake of brevity, name only one book in each category. I'll start. My favorite, for many reasons, but the main reason is it's lyrical quality. SACHSE 100 exercises. I love this book and am still stymied by it's demands for facility, precision and flexibility. Beautiful, symphonic, satisfying. My least favorite by a mile is CARMINE CARUSO's Musical Calisthenics for Brass. It's the most torturous, exhausting, beat you over the head with what you can't do 47 exercises. His 4 steadfast rules for playing his method will put your embouchure (and confidence) back in grade school. It's like lifting weights for the embouchure. It took me weeks to realize I simply couldn't do it past 10 exercises of 47. A real wake up call for cocky guys like me. Your results may differ.
