What is a good book for someone preparing for a grade 6 classical ballet exam?

You should try reading The Ballet Companion by Eliza Gaynor Minden. It has information on ballet's history, a glossary of terms, and lots of useful information on everything from doing a bun to auditioning and performing. What I expect would help the most, however, are the sections written on ballet movements like tendues, grande battements, and pirouettes. They have lots of pictures and give you really informative tips for each ballet movement!

What is the difference between cecchetti ballet and ballet?

There is not just Cechetti Ballet and Ballet. You learn a ballet syllabus, there are many different ones. When you take an exam it is from an exam board for example Cecchetti but there are many others such as R.A.D., I.D.T.A. and I.S.T.D. However Cecchetti and RAD (Royal Ballet) seem to be the most common. Cechetti grades are a lot more technically demanding and are considered harder. Grade 3 in Cecchetti would be equivalent to a Grade 4 or 5 in RAD. Cecchetti is also a lot harder to get a high mark in. You cannot compare exam results from Cecchetti and RAD fairly. There is more focus on alignment and poise in Cecchetti than in RAD which becomes more useful if you want to become a professional. Some positions such as 'epaule' are only included in Cecchetti. I personally think Cecchetti is slightly better than RAD and all the others, having trained in RAD and Cechetti.
