I find A, Bb and C the easiest to hit. G quite hard for some reason. Altissimo F# dead easy, although unnecessary on tenor as I have an F# key.

I only ever seem to like altissimo on tenor. Is that just me?

I can only get F and F# so far on my tenor - just a loads of ear piercing squeaks on the rest :(

A is commmonly the first one to start sounding decent.
A few alternative fingerings work.
Try fingering a middle D (down the front keys) and take your finger off the B key.
Or as above with G instead of D

A good way is to play your lowest A
then Middle A
then pre hear the next A with the fingering above.
