    in general...
    technical arpeggios, scale knowledge, performance, sightreading....

    3 hours of practice everyday with just regular technical practicing, some required pieces, 1 showcase piece, and practiced a lot of sightreading.

    i just took the final grade 8 piano exam in june 2008 :bigthumb:

    im assuming you have the ABRSM books - pieces, scales, sight reading, aural tests? just practiced the scales and my three chosen pieces pretty regularly. also went through the sight reading book, and practiced the aural tests.

    feel free to hit me up if you want to ask anything

    nah i dont have the books yet. this idea of re-taking the test just struck me no more than 24 hours ago. i am extremely slow at sight reading. i play much better by ear.
