Complete Skills for Ielts -with - 2 Cds (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.420

Complete Skills For IELTS (With 2 CDs) is for those who plan to enroll in universities or undertake non-academic training, in a foreign country. This guide, paired with two CDs, comprehensively covers all four sections of the IELTS.

Summary Of The Book

Complete Skills For IELTS (With 2 CDs), published in 2012, has been designed to help candidates prepare for the International English Language Testing System. IELTS is used across the globe to test English language proficiency in listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Candidates can join educational institutions and professional organizations after appearing for this examination. Countries like Australia, USA, New Zealand, South Africa, Britain, Ireland, and others accept IELTS scores.

Complete Skills For IELTS (With 2 CDs) starts off with the Listening section, which contains an audio CD. This disc plays monologues, group discussions, or speeches, at the end of which the candidates are asked a few questions. This is similar to how the actual exam is conducted. The Reading section of this guide has passages, and students are required to answer different types of questions, like identifying the writer's viewpoints, and writing summaries. The third portion of Complete Skills For IELTS (With 2 CDs) is titled Writing for IELTS. Candidates can practice their writing skills by expressing their thoughts and opinions on paper. The first half of the test requires a person to describe a chart or a graph, and the second half requires one to respond to an argument through an essay

The final section focuses on speaking, and the CD accompanying this book contains practice exercises. The part of the actual IELTS is segregated into three sections, the first of which is an interview about the candidate’s interests, hobbies, family, computers, and the Internet. In the following part, the candidate needs to deliver a speech, and the final section is a discussion with the examiner. Some of the chapters in this book are Family Structures, Local Languages, Starting University, Being Young, and At The Office. Every portion of Complete Skills For IELTS (With 2 CDs) comes with complete practice sets, along with tips, audio scripts, and answer keys. This guide has been written by expert tutors, and can help candidates excel in the final examination.

A Decent Book - But optional

Its a good book for someone new to IELTS. Two CDs for listening and speaking exercise. Also good number of examples / exercises / tests for reading and writing. I was not knowing that when one registers for IELTS, they automatically receive a complementary IELTS Book / CD for practising and believe me its more than enough. If someone wants to practice more then he can buy this additional book for practice. For me buying this book just meant extra cost as the IELTS Practice Book which I received was sufficient.

This book is all you need to get as high as 8 Band !

First of all, let me make it very clear that this is a book primarily for those who are having at least a month time to prepare for the exam. Because it is not something which you can think of completing in a week time.

Coming to the Pros of this book, there are many exercises provided in this book all of them lay equal stress on the 4 modules. So you don't need any coaching or any other study material if you are ready to devote yourself completely to prepare with this book for at least a month. There are over 100 recordings on Speaking and over 75 recording on Listening Module. So all to...

So you don't need any coaching or any other study material if you are ready to devote yourself completely to prepare with this book for at least a month. There are over 100 recordings on Speaking and over 75 recording on Listening Module. So all together you are getting a complete practice material to practice on your own at any time as per your preference. Along with that, there are vast number of examples as well to let you know about common mistakes and required ways of answering any Writing section question. But the best part of this book which you will be finding at the beginning of each and every chapter is "Vocabulary Development Exercises". They are of great help for someone who is not a native English speaker because they all are depicted along with images and situations in this book.

About the cons, i only found one in it. Although there are enough number of practice materials in each and every chapter, but there should have been at least 2-4 standard IELTS Practice test which would have been from my point of view. But for the price that you are paying for this book, you can't expect anything more :)

My suggestion: Complete this book thoroughly and practice the lessons again and again in which you were unable to get at least 80% of the answers correct until you are really very confident in it. Because confidence is what matters a lot along with hard work in any Test in our life. Also after completing this book, practice from "Oxford IELTS Practice Tests by Peter May" at least twice or thrice 1-2 week before the exam. You will definitely be getting at least 8 Band(as i did) if you sketch a study plan and practice these two books pretty well.

Good Luck all of you !

Buy if u have time

Good book but not for those who are looking for a short and simple book. This book will give u practice and ample opportunity to write, read and develop the skills but is not written " to the point" and does a lot of 'beating around the bush' and is annoying for the aspirant who is already tense and needs ready-to eat kind of material.

a supportive hand

well,if seen from the exam point of view,its definitely helpful,no doubt. but for those who wish to enhance and expand their vocabulary in english language,this book will appear to be quite average . precise and to the point with not a word extra or out of the so called examination syllabus . nevertheless, thumbs up and good work.
