I bought the ABRSM Aural Training app some time ago to practise the Grade 8 Aural Tests, in particular the singing back, cadences and chords first exercise. But the number of examples is very small - a very small handful of those in the ABRSM practice test book - so very soon you know them by heart. Similarly with the modulations test. Anyone else experienced this? I know I can sign up to e-musicmaestro, for example, for more tests. The app seems a poor product for his reason.

The higger grades in the AB books also have fewer examples. I've always been tempted to think someone didn't know how to write or find more difficult examples and rather lazily left it up to we teachers to make them up or find them. The lower grades have lots of examples. it's just another example of the falling standards in customer support.
