I'm sure lots of people have been in this situation: you blitz through species counterpoint in your freshman year as a music major, only to realize its importance much later i. This book is excellent and thorough, covering counterpoint not only as a theoretical grounding for later harmonic theory, but also examining its use in large-scale composition.
Some procedures are flatly forbidden that more relaxed authors -- like Jeppesen -- excuse in instances where fudging the rules produces a beautiful voice leading. In other words, their tone is not exactly encouraging- compared to 'The Student', your early efforts are bound to feel pretty clumsy at least mine were. Still, this is a nice book with lots of good exercises and examples drawn from real music literature.
I enjoy that this book begins with coverage of species counterpoint. It came in handy for a class on Schenkerian theory, which requires a background in species counterpoint. Not only explains concepts in a great Great book. Not only explains concepts in a great manner but also has examples of both good and bad counterpoint with reasoning why and gives exercises to do as well.
