Majors:- C (-), D (F#, C#), Bb (Bb, Eb) etc etc writing all the accidentals in brackets, how many octaves etc. I then print all this out on an A4 sheet of paper (although my grade 8 scales have stretched to two sheets!!!!) and then put the sheet of scales up everywhere. I've got my grade 8 on December 9th and I've got sheets up in my room, in the music room at school, on the fridge, on the ceiling over my bed etc. It's worked for me in every exam so far! Helps me to memorise them.

Does not reading from the book help?
I've always read from the book (for cello not piano) and I've always been bad at scales.
Wow, that could be useful!

2. Play them with your eyes shut.
3. Use a metronome occasionally as a check.
4. Job done.
