Well, it's an A5 format book, 96 pages, 25 of which are technical instructions and most of the other pages are half empty. If condensed, I would say, it will take 15 normal pages. Although, it is called "academic", it gives a very general outline of the ACADEMIC writing, absolutely insufficient for someone who needs a high score. No example of a real/ideal essay at all.

The book exactly corresponds to its title: these are just hints. Some of them are common places, although others are quite good. However,in my opinion, there are better hint books available on the market.

The good thing is there is a CD included. It has a video of a real speaking section and this one is authentic. A listening test section is also good and authentic. The writing task for an academic essay is unlikely to be met at a real test. The practice test is about typing your answers on the computer which differs from the good old paper and blunt pencil IELTS.

IMHO, the book could be used by the teachers as a supplement. Definitely, not a comprehensive study-book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This so-called 'academic' text-book fails to deliver on a number of
levels and offers very few insights, except perhaps for complete IELTS
novices.
The miniscule size of the book, coupled with low page-count and low word-
count per page (many of which are half pages of text only), immediately
signal what poor value for money this item is likely to be. Its information
content is also disappointing, particularly for students aiming to get above
a very mediocre score. Additionally, it would have been more beneficial to
provide the reader with more practical questions in the writing component,
instead of cobbling together a mish-mash of ex-student answers and referring
readers to the single practice test on the CD Rom. I could go on...but I've
got papers to mark.
My advice to any potential purchaser would be not to buy this offering in the
full printed and published form, but if you are an IELTS beginner and can get
it as an ebook for a fraction of the price, then it might help you kill ten
minutes or so on your train journey! Good luck in your exam!

Advisable to whom hasn't much time nor english teacher and need urgently to be succeded on IELTS examination. If your dreams are on a life abroad and you must have a good performance on IELTS exam you will need to chose the shorter way - what can help you more efficiently that a book of tips to know what will happen on your exam and have good results.

I bought this for taking ILETS, of course and this book gives me very clear guidance to how to answer questions.
I have lots of books for IELTS and most of them are practices, related exercises but this book is quite useful particularly listening tips. The tip leads me which part I should focus to listen!

It is necessary to read this book before you take the IELTS test. However, you can find similiar information on the IELTS websites, so the book does not make a big difference.
