@ YunKim - Firstly, there are mistakes in nearly every text book, however they are usually minor. With regard to your issue Yes=True, No= False and Not Given = Not Given. I understand your point, but really. . . I think its quite easy to find your way through this one. At Chris Pell, I disagree with you! The text books cover the skill sets needed to achieve high scores. Furthermore, the IELTS band descriptors provide all of the information an instructor needs to prepare their students to take the exam and earn very high scores.

I think this is the most comprehensive guide available today. The book is very user-friendly and covers all the major points quite well. I particularyl like the tips boxes beside each section and the practice activities. What I would say lets it down is the fact that it is made by Cambridge. As owners of the IELTS test they dont want to give too much away. It seems like they are giving students just enough and no more. I suppose if they gave away too much it would devalue the test so I cant complain too much. Websites like seem to offer more of this insider info. and should be used in conjunction with this book.

Several times I have filled out the form requesting a sample and the link to review several items on this site and after three months have not received even so much as a we have received your order and are processing it Does this site even work? I am very disappointed in the lack of service. As an ESL teacher I find that the listening tasks in several of the books very difficult for my students, the accent and the rapid speaking of the conversational material are difficult sometimes for the teachers, I cant imagine the frustration of the students. Hope there will be some improvements implemented sooner rather than later

It has big mistakes in the test 6 reading. When u look at the page 256, from the question 23 to 26, those are asking yes, no or not given. But the answers for these questions are true, false or not given. How can I trust these answer? It may not reliable. Just think once more before buying this book. One more thing. They dont provide any contacts, even I found a mistake like this. So much disappointed.
