Ielts Testbuilder 1 (second edition with key)

Sam McCarter and Judith Ash, Macmillan Education;


There are many ELT books to help students study for the ever-popular Ielts exam. This updated book prepares B2–C1 students in the 5.5–7.0 band for the Academic version of the exam. It makes good on its claim to offer ‘Tests that teach’. In addition to four complete practice tests, there are useful explanations of language problems. Listening is provided through audio CDs.

Tips are provided to help with the speaking test; useful feedback comments are given on sample writing scripts. Worth investigation.
