5.0 out of 5 stars Great for getting into the swing of things
English is my first language but I had to take an IELTS test for immigration purposes.

I found this book really helpful in getting back into the swing of taking tests, I've not done one in many years. I did silly things like writing the whole answer out instead of just the corresponding letter. I'm really thankful I made this kind of silly mistake on my test...

3.0 out of 5 stars It is Ok but question is, is this worth paying £33.88?
There are not much different compare with 8,7 or older versions. However It includes 2 cds, there is question arising that it is worth to pay £33.88.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for getting into the swing of things, 9 April 2014

English is my first language but I had to take an IELTS test for immigration purposes.

I found this book really helpful in getting back into the swing of taking tests, I've not done one in many years. I did silly things like writing the whole answer out instead of just the corresponding letter. I'm really thankful I made this kind of silly mistake on my test papers and not have to resit the test (to the tune of £145).

I also did all the free papers that are available online. In the end I got an 8.5 overall, the highest you can get is a 9.Clearly this book can't teach you how to spell...

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful resource for teaching., 5 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a teacher I found this book really useful. My only comment would be perhaps a clearer directive as to exactly what grammar is expected in the exam so that the teacher can plan lessons in specifically targeted areas that may be weak. But you can work it out so overall really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars IELTS 9, 1 Jun 2013
This review is from: Cambridge IELTS 9 Self-study Pack (Student's Book with Answers and Audio CDs (2)): Authentic Examination Papers from Cambridge ESOL (IELTS Practice Tests) (Audio CD)
Brief and straight to the point. Great stuff!
The book covered all the basic areas and the sample questions were quite relevant. I registered for the exam with only a week to go, went through the book within that week and managed to get a 7.5 grade in the exam!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for self study, 3 Jun 2014
This review is from: Cambridge IELTS 9 Self-study Pack (Student's Book with Answers and Audio CDs (2)): Authentic Examination Papers from Cambridge ESOL (IELTS Practice Tests) (Audio CD)
Excellent self study material. No teacher required if the student is really dedicated in getting the mark he wants. More attention to grammar exercises I would suggest as they develop a basis for language learning. Audio exercises are very clear and understandable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book but watch out NO AUDIO CD INCLUDED!!!!, 8 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a book it is super great but I wish they mentioned it doesn't come with the audio cd because I ended up studying it without touching any of the listening sections because I didn't have the audio cd and when I looked it up it was even more expensive than the book itself, that wasn't really a pleasant surprise but I had another book that I practiced the listening section from.

The most helpful thing for me was the writing section in that book and I think that's probably what makes it different than the other book or exercises I did online

2.0 out of 5 stars Is this real?, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cambridge IELTS 9 Self-study Pack (Student's Book with Answers and Audio CDs (2)): Authentic Examination Papers from Cambridge ESOL (IELTS Practice Tests) (Audio CD)
Contents are the exact same as real one I think, but papers of all pages are thin and CDs are just copy which I may be able to make myself.
