IELTS Reading Practice Test

IELTS Reading Recent Actual Tests Volume 1 include 8 IELTS reading actual tests which were in the real IELTS tests from 2007 to 2011.

Reading is the second part of the IELTS examination with three reading passages with increasing difficulty. IELTS candidates will have 60 minutes for this IELTS Reading part with a total of 40 questions. It is very necessary that you invest time on practicing the real IELTS test questions for this module.

You should practice on real tests because:

+ First,  these extracted from IELTS bank source; therefore, you are in all probability to take these tests in your real examinations. This statement can be proven by the attached index indicating the dates these tests were taken.

+ Second, when practicing this book, you can evaluate at the nearest possibility how difficult the IELTS Reading Part is in the real exam, and what the top most common traps are.  Another important point  is that these real tests are much more tricky and difficult than the ones in the IELTS Cambridge books

English Pronunciation in Use (Pdf) + Audio

Excellent.

This book is very good if you want to practise a difficult area of English. Phrasal verbs are very common in spoken language and informal writing and to learn is a must. I suggest another book is Phrasal Verb Organiser by John Flower.

Excellent books

This is a very interesting book aimed to learn the use of phrasal verb, perhaps, the most difficult part of the English language for non-English speakers.

As good as the rest of the series.

I'm a fan of the In Use series, so I liked this book. Wouldn't use it on its own though. A mix of the In Use books makes a really good learning experience.

Great for learners of English as a second language

Always a tricky subject for those learning English. In this book the examples are clear and easy to read, thanks
