This new edition incorporates the changes to the speaking module introduced in July How to read, or how to read efficiently? Learning to read organisation 29 3.
Indeed, Unit 4 of the book focuses on identifying academic contexts as a listening sub-skill. The authors take little for granted. The learner is led into the intricacies of the Listening tasks step by step. In other words, having done question 1, should you read along the row to find question 2, or down the same column?
The importance of the role of prediction is hammered home throughout the book.
At the very start we find a typical listening-task table that can be completed without reference to any aural input whatsoever.
I was also somewhat surprised to find sound linking in connected speech introduced so early as an active oral skill. This will contain your tracking information All our estimates are based on business days and assume that shipping and delivery don't occur on holidays and weekends.

There are also a number of different types of writing question and each requires a different approach and this is also addressed in the book.
Despite it being aimed at higher levels the book is practical and easy to understand. Negatives I would like to see some more examples of very good answers.
It would be very helpful if there were band 5 answers and then show how these could be improved and a corresponding band 8 answer. It would also be good if students were given some practical advice about where and how they can practice their writing and speaking skills at home.
I was unaware of this series of books until I searched for my own site on Google and these books showed up. So I should say again that I am in no way affiliated with this publisher.
This book is for someone who already has a good level of English and wants to improve their exam technique at home and score at least a band score of 7. Anyone at pre-intermediate level or below.
Positives Giving students suggested fixed phrases and collocations is a big strength of this book. There are lots of example essays and speaking sample answers which really helps students because it allows them to compare their own work with good examples.
There is a summary of the main points at the end of every chapter that helps students recall the most important information. The reasoning behind each activity is explained and linked to the exam.
Negatives They have done a great job with what they have covered, but I think they could have made the book much longer and covered every aspect of the IELTS test. This book had the potential to be the definitive guide to IELTS but they missed a few things out which is unfortunate.
Difficult to find outside of the UK. There are now 10 books in this series and they provide four practice tests in each book. They are published by the same people who make the actual tests so they provide an invaluable insight into the test. Who is it not for? The majority of the past papers are for the Academic paper, but there are also some General Training papers in each book.
