I bought two books together, but one this one ((Essential IELTS Practice Tests))arrived late, and the CD did not come, everyone in my class have the book with CD only this seller sells the same book differently (without Cd)... I did contact the seller and he was informed that the book does not come with CD, but everyone in my class has the same book (same ISBN) with CD inside the book
I am a Masters graduate in history from Oxford. My wife needed to study IELTS for university. We purchased this book because of that. I was extremely disappointed. The book made it seem that my wife was destined for failure. I then obtained the official test book produced by Cambridge. My wife did significantly better. She has now passed her IELTS.
Specifically my feedback on this text is that the reading passages are far harder than they should be. If you are not doing well using this book, please do not lose hope!
