    I'm torn between the two. The Piston set is DEFINITELY cheaper, but I'm not so sure that the Kostka would be much better anyway. I love the idea that the Kostka comes with a CD and a Finale CD, but I'm not sure that it's all it's made out to be.

    Thoughts/opinions?

    Kostka's book is probably most widely used text book in the US on this subject.

    But I always use this book for my lessons.

    or its previous edition

    If you are taking or will take private lessons, ask teacher's opinion.

    That book is the best theory book I've ever used for a class.
