IELTS Preparation and Practice is designed to meet the needs of students preparing to take the IELTS (International English Language Testing System).
IELTS Preparation and Practice: Academic Module
There are five main sections in this book. Each section looks at a different section of the IELTS General Training Module Reading and Writing tests.
At the beginning of each chapter, there is a demonstration to show you how a skilled reader and writer of English would answer the questions quickly and confidently.
Instead of trying to answer the Demonstration questions by yourself, you should follow carefully the steps set out in the How to Answer section.
In this way, you will develop an understanding of the most efficient test strategies. The Analysis and Practice section comes after the Demonstration and it is here the skills and strategies from the Demonstration will be explained in detail.
You will have an opportunity to practise what you have learned in various activities; and, since working effectively in a limited time is very important in tests, each activity has a Time target. The Time target gives you a suggested time limit for completing the activity.
Follow the instructions for each activity and when you have finished, check your answers in the Answer Key at the back of the book. There are also Practice Reading and Writing tests for you to attempt once you have completed all the activities.
There is a sample Reading answer sheet on page 155 for you to photocopy and use each time that you do a Practice Reading test. The answers for these tests are also included in the Answer Key.
