After teaching IELTS for six years I can say with confidence that this is by far the most useful book I have come across. Taking a task based approach, each aspect of the writing exam is broken down into small achievable chunks. These then build into full task one and two practice papers, which students are able to write, based on the previous exercises.
What I like most is the use of very authentic English both here and in the listening / speaking book. This allows students to develop collocation knowledge, which is essential for IELTS 7.
The IELTS exam is often very overwhelming for even high-level students but this series presents it clearly and practically. Compared to most other IELTS books, this series is cheap and represents superb value for money. Can be used by students for self-study or with a tutor (answers and model essays provided).
