Cambridge Practice Tests for IELTS Series (1 – 14), written by experienced IELTS examiners provides learners with a number of practice tests. This includes around 50 complete authentic practice tests for the International English Language Testing System examination.

The Student’s Book contains an introduction to the different modules of the exam along with an explanation of the scoring system used by Cambridge ESOL, the different IELTS question types, and how to approach them. The inclusion of annotated keys and tapescripts for each test makes the material simple for students working partly or entirely on their own. The Audio CDs contain listening material for the IELTS listening section in the same timed format as the real IELTS test. This is so they can reflect the reality of writing the IELTS exam.

These books are truly a comprehensive resource pack which helped me prepare better for my IELTS test. I went through all the tests in these 11 books and improved my vocabulary by using Cambridge English Collocation in Use and Cambridge Vocabulary for IELTS. In the end, hard work paid off. I got 7.5 in IELTS and will apply for a scholarship soon.
This resource is suitable for me to study on my own. The books and CD-ROM have a great number of practical exercises which help me familiarize with all the four skills.
It is very helpful for my studies. I hope Cambridge IELTS continues to publish more editions soon.

I’m glad that I bought this book. I used it for studying for my IELTS exam and I got an outstanding score which is more than I expected to get. I think that the most important thing that helped me is the four complete practice tests on all the sections. I’m really satisfied!
