Excellent Sight Reading Book

Robert Ottman's Music for Sight Singing is the standard college text for music theory courses where sight singing is emphasized. A very good progressive study for those wanting to learn how to sight sing. It starts simple but progresses quickly. It's also a great resource for those who want to practice their sight reading. It's designed to mess you up. The melodies sound familiar at times but stray of in unexpected directions which helps to keep you from cheating and guessing where the melody is headed. It also works your bass clef reading, which I highly recommend. As well as all the meters, from 3/2 to 3/16 and then some.

I haven't been able to find it new at a reasonable price. Used is fine. Link through Amazon links below to find one at a price you like. I've had a couple of them. The last one I found at a thrift store for a quarter.
