This is an excellent source of useful tips for students preparing for FCE. It's written by people who know at first hand what's required for FCE - the Cambridge ESOL examiners. It comes with a really useful CD-ROM. Get it from Amazon and you won't have to pay postage costs.

It includes a completed exam that is very good for practising. The content of the book is no very useful if you are in a Language School, because any teacher would give you these tips. However, in case you are studying on your own, it might be a good book for you.

This (old) edition of FCE Top Tips is a 64 or so page long booklet that provides simple but useful tips on how to approach the FCE exam. In addition to the booklet with the information and tips, there is a CD Rom and there is a complete test for each paper and answers (for Reading, Use of English and Listening) or sample answers (for writing). The CD Rom also includes the audio for the listening test and the sample speaking test includes the rubrics (instructions) for the tasks that will help candidates know what to expect from the oral examiner during the speaking.

I would give this 5 + for content but 2 for quantity. Cambridge ESOL, who administer the FCE, can usually be relied upon to produce top-quality materials and this booklet does contain clear and effective and easily-digestible tips about each paper and one practice test but that is it.

Anyone seriously interested in taking the exam should definitely begin by finding out all they can about the FCE from the Cambridge ESOL FCE website, where, I think, there are some practice exercises.

A few years ago,in 2009,I think,candidates taking the FCE gotthis for free and perhaps Cambridge ESOL thought it would be better to charge for it. This is a pity. This booklet is not really worth buying at the price unless you want to be sure that you have extremely reliable information and tips about what you SHOULD do to prepare wellfor the exam (and, of course,for many students with access to the internet, this should not be difficult). At the same time, not everyone does have 24/7 internet access. Although it is three times more expensive, the Cambridge Vocabularly for FCE book with Answers and CD will provide far more value.
