5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding resource, number 1 11 Mar 2012
By Ionut84
Verified Purchase
Although this book is not published by Cambridge University Press, it is the best writing guide for IELTS. Cambridge books seem to have neglected writing part of the exam, at least when it comes to aiming for band 7+. This wonderful book does job much better than they do. Collocations and phrases are the main characteristic of this excellent reference, but is not the only thing I adore. Sample essays and comments teach you as well. I've been struggling to understand rules of task 1, including a plan of this kind of essay. I purchased this outstanding book and everything changed. I feel more confident. Missing page is not a problem because the publisher attached this for my request. Worth buying and working through it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Purchasing 15 Jan 2013
By Ian
Verified Purchase
I agree with the view expressed by author Richard Brown that many IELTS coursebooks "chuck all the skills in together" and it's unclear what to pick out and teach. I really think the authors are on the right track here treating writing separately. They are very clear about how the Task 2 essay should be approached. However, Task 1, is only given three units, and while they present a consistent way of writing an answer, I feel it is perhaps not the best way to draft a Task 1 answer.

5.0 out of 5 stars THe "missing link" for IELTS preparation 23 Jun 2012
By Sally
This really is the "missing link" when it comes to IELTS books. The writing part of the exam is often the highest hurdle for many learners. This book devotes a unit to each task and uses exercises and model answers to analyse what is required in great detail. There are reading texts, formulaic language lists, vocualulary studies and general grammar highlights and all of these are accompanied by useful exercises. There is also a "Check and Challenge" page at the end of each unit designed to aid later recall. It can be used by IELTS students at any level. I teach EFL at colleges, universities and as a private language tutor, and I recommend this book to all my learners.
