Since I started preparing for the IELTS exam many teachers were suggesting different books ( I googled and found many websites and teachers helping you improve all the skills using variety of different resources). I was totally confused and then a friend of mine suggested this book. I am no longer confused where to look and what to expect. It is pretty inexpensive comparing to private tuitions. it is a book worth spending money as the results are guaranteed
All in one book>Perfect!I bought this book for Academic IELTS .Very happy...Best book for preparation to sit IELTS and get a high band
this book is very helpful for IELTS exam I passed very well after using it, having failed the exam previously.
A comprehensive book and perhaps the only book you will need to go confident for the test. The exercises are intuitive and interesting, the flow of the book is quite ideal with tips, common errors being highlighted. It has 8 official practice tests (the most that I could find in any one book) unlike some of the other Cambridge books that have too few tests.
If you don't want to collect a clutter of books and only want to focus on ONE book, simply go for this one
I watched a webinar on this book, and it got me convinced. Book is very well structured and it helps you to get to know the test step by step, with good exercises.
