Customer Reviews

The techniques explained are excellent.

We also complained at the website of the publisher, but didn't get any reply from that.

The big problem is that the CD only contains the audio for the first listening test.

The main problem with this otherwise good book is that about half of the book is IELTS practice tests, which is fine. That means there are 4 parts (listening, reading, writing and speaking) for each. The big problem is that the CD only contains the audio for the first listening test. They didn't bother to record audio for tests 2-4. So they may as well not have been written, because obviously there is no way to test your listening if there's nothing to listen to. A big boo and hiss to Barron's for putting out this incomplete package. I gladly would have paid the extra money it would have cost to pay for the one extra CD. As it is, I have to go buy some other book and CD now.

Hi
The advertisement says four full lengths tests however you have only one audio test. It is ridiculous they say four FULL lengths.
This really hurts much when you buy just before test assuming you have FOUR FULL LENGTH TESTS.

Good book but misleading. Indicates it has all the audio tests on the CD but it only has the first. Are the others missing or are they having us on?

I agree with everyone who has complained about the fact that the four tests are incomplete. The CD only gives ONE listening test! It's pointless having four tests in print but only ONE listening test. I think this completely lets down what is otherwise a very useful book. I too would have paid extra to have the complete four practice tests.

This should not be your sole method of prepaing for the IELTS unless you are a strong native english speaker. The book gives you no full idea on what makes a good or bad writing exam and as already mentioned, the listening exam lessons are inadequate. I just took my exam this weekend and this book did not have a significant input into my performance

The material is great. BUT... I was totally frustrated to find out the CD does NOT include the four listening modules, only the first one! Nowhere in the book or on the site did I find any information about that! Very mileading! Apart from that, the book is very good.
