Yes, thanks for the link westview! I must log off now so I can have a read. Wlfgng; FYI there is a free PDF copy of the book for download at the link westiew provided. PS. Work at a speed you are comfortable with. Write down your metronome numbers in pencil next to each line. Try to increase your speed by 2 to 6 bpm each/or every couple days. Cross out the old number and write in the new number so you can see your progress. Use different mm markings for each line (mid register will probably be faster). Practice the same three or four lines every day for a week, then do the next three or four lines. When you are done with the book, start over. Keep your fingers curved and bang the valves. My teacher finished this book four times by the time he finished high school.
