4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not the best choice keeping in mind its price, 18 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cambridge English Proficiency 1 for Updated Exam Self-study Pack (Student's Book with Answers and Audio CDs (2)): Authentic Examination Papers from Cambridge ESOL (CPE Practice Tests) (Paperback)
The only drawback is that the key section comes without explanations. You will only find the answers there. There are other books containing practice tests which are more affordable and contain a more extensive key section, with detailed explanations.

This review is from: Cambridge English Proficiency 1 for Updated Exam Self-study Pack (Student's Book with Answers and Audio CDs (2)): Authentic Examination Papers from Cambridge ESOL (CPE Practice Tests) (Paperback)
the solutions come with helpful advice, for example marked examples of writing. however, if you're looking for anything like "what does an essay look like", this book is not for you.

I use this book as a last preparation course before the exams. It's very helpful and the students enjoy working
through it. I certainly recommend it to everyone preparing for an exam.

excellent hand book for practicing the English exam, unfortunately I decided not to take the exam at the end as I was told that the certificate only lasts for 3 years. I will definitely take it in the future when I return to live in Spain.

I have found this book useful as it contains sample papers for the Reading and Use of English part, the Writing part, the Listening part and the Speaking part. It provides answer keys for the tests; however, it would have been helpful to have some writing samples to take a look at so I could have had a better idea of what is expected from the candidate. As I prepared for the CPE test at home by using this book and a few other sources that did not provide writing samples either, I was not really sure about what was expected from me when doing the Writing part of my test. When I get my results I will be able to write about whether studying only at home can be enough to achieve a successful result.
