If I pass my grade 1 exam in March, so I start on the 2 book. If I take my grade 2 next March then Will I have to get the new 2 book for the exam? "It,s all very confusing".
If you live in Europe and you are taking your G2 in March 2013 then you can still use the 2012 G2 book.
(In France, I can use the old books for a full year after they've 'expired', i.e. the 2011/2012 ones are valid for all three 2013 sessions).
But presumably you won't be buying the G2 book straight after passing your G1 exam in March 2012 ?
I mean, it's not a good idea (at all!!!) to spend one year working on the exam pieces.
So, if you're thinking of taking your next exam in March 2013, buy the new book in August or September 2012 when it comes out.
If your teacher has a second-hand copy of the 2011/2012 syllabus to lend you, you can use that in 2013 no problem (although check with your ABRS rep all the same).
