The IELTS test is hard and stressful, especially if this is your first time taking it. This short, easy to read study guide can help first time test takers "know what to expect on test day." This book will give you the tips, strategies, and information you need to prepare you for the IELTS test. It covers the Academic version and General Training version of the IELTS test. Don't know which version you should take or what the differences between the versions are? That's in here too. It also contains outlines of what to expect from the IELTS test as a whole and the individual listening, reading, writing, and speaking modules. The breakdowns of the individual modules are useful, but the most useful parts of this book are the tips and strategies. For each module (listening, reading, writing, and speaking) we have a lot of short, easy to follow tips and strategies. The book has "36 tips for the listening module, 25 for the reading module, 48 for the writing module, and 44 for the speaking module." There are over 150 tips total in this book. With all the tips and strategies, I'm sure at least some of them will help boost your band score. And if just one of the tips helps you get a better score, isn't that worth the price of the book? The tips and strategies are the most important part of this book, but I know many IELTS test takers have a lot of trouble with the speaking portion. So, as a bonus, I've also included speaking test practice questions and examiner practice scripts so you can practice in a realistic way with a partner. The format of this book is focused on giving you lots of information quickly in an easy to understand format. No fluff, just tips and information about the tests so you can be ready when test day comes.

BIG DISCOUNT - ONLY for this WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - 120 TOEFL iBT writing (REAL TEST) essays around the word. - Collected by ETS staffs - Practice, Tricks or Tips are enough. It's time for reading and learning how TOEFL candidates reached very high scores in Writing Test. - Additionally, Writing topics could be repeated several times each year. - The valuable papers for any TOEFL candidates included all features of Academic Writing. + Complexity Written language is relatively more complex than spoken language. Written language has longer words, it is lexically more dense and it has a more varied vocabulary. It uses more noun-based phrases than verb-based phrases. Written texts are shorter and the language has more grammatical complexity, including more subordinate clauses and more passives. + Formality Academic writing is relatively formal. In general this means that in an essay you should avoid colloquial words and expressions. + Precision In academic writing, facts and figures are given precisely. + Objectivity Written language is in general objective rather than personal. It therefore has fewer words that refer to the writer or the reader. This means that the main emphasis should be on the information that you want to give and the arguments you want to make, rather than you. For that reason, academic writing tends to use nouns (and adjectives), rather than verbs (and adverbs). + Explicitness Academic writing is explicit about the relationships int he text. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the writer in English to make it clear to the reader how the various parts of the text are related. These connections can be made explicit by the use of different signalling words. + Accuracy Academic writing uses vocabulary accurately. Most subjects have words with narrow specific meanings. Linguistics distinguishes clearly between "phonetics" and "phonemics"; general English does not. + Hedging In any kind of academic writing you do, it is necessary to make decisions about your stance on a particular subject, or the strength of the claims you are making. Different subjects prefer to do this in different ways. A technique common in certain kinds of academic writing is known by linguists as a ‘hedge’. + Responsibility In academic writing you must be responsible for, and must be able to provide evidence and justification for, any claims you make. You are also responsible for demonstrating an understanding of any source texts you use.
