I am a piano beginner, but really wanted to learn Preludes in C Major and C Minor, so instead of cheaping out with printing, decided to invest in this book. It is HUGE, far thicker than I expected but I do enjoy the quality. Printing is clear, it is a bit cramped but i actually appreciate that for most pieces it spans exactly 2 pages, so i don't need to page flip.
i'm only on prelude 1 (C Major) right now, and note that this book includes the "Schwencke measure" (an extra measure between 22 and 23, so in this case measure 23 is the additional from Schwencke). It took me a while to figure it out, as I'm self learning, so without a teacher, i was watching youtube video performances (with music sheet following along) on youtube, and realized that several times something doesn't match up right in the latter half of the piece. Eventually tracked it down to that funny measure.
Hopefully this is helpful for some people who were as confused as I got over that extra measure!
