This exam-practice book aims to prepare students for the Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) exam, and consists of four complete practice tests. Revised for the 2015 exam, it provides a useful summary of the test itself. The book includes exercises to help develop exam techniques and tips on how to approach the speaking paper. Some reading texts are intrinsically interesting, such as the article on Tutankhamun. Among several useful features are the analysis of sample answers in the writing paper section and two CDs with audio for the listening tests. This book should prove useful for students preparing for this exam.
