This book has captured all different types of questions in all formats of the test (Speaking, Listening, Reading & Writing) pretty well.

I used only this book for the preparation for 15 days and scored 7.5

One of the best books for IELTS. Have looked for other books, but Barron's books are definitive guides. Was very detailed in explanation and the best parts were the tests included in the book.
Bought it for my wife and she got the score she wanted! Would highly recommend this book to anyone preparing for IELTS tests.

It's all very well for an English textbook to tell you to check your spelling and grammar. It would be much better if this book had been properly proofread and all the mistakes taken out (there are plenty already, and I'm only two days into it).

It is pretty useless as a class textbook, because all the answers are supplied in the back, so of course many in the class think it smarter to copy the answer rather than write one. Of course they're not going to get any mark worth having in the exam proper.

I really don't understand why there needs to be an American book for a British exam. Better to go to the horse's mouth and get a British textbook. Many of the "language differences" are in any case fallacious, and conversely many are missed.

This book is highly recommended! Two thumbs-up from me. Price is good as the book also contains two cds for me to listen and practice my English proficiency. This book really encourage those people who wants to improve their English language. Really worth the price!!!

The book is very simple and the way of learning how to read is the best part, but is still weak and does not teach students how to improve the yes/no/not given and the important questions that people get wrong. The speaking tests for part 1 are ok, but the part 2 and 3 questions no longer exist in the real exam... so it's a waste of time. The writing is ok for beginners and the method is alright as it breaks down the main bodies well... but it still isn't good as the listening after section 1 and 2 do not really relate to the real test. E.g. the toaster part - what is that about? I'm in shock! The problem is that I spent my cash on this book!

I used this book to teach an IELTS preparation class. The main advantage of the book is that it has a lot of practice material. The disadvantages are the sections on reading and writing. The reading section is short, and most of the activities are based on one rather difficult reading passage. The writing section is almost impossible to use because it doesn't address the different writing tasks separately. I hope that they correct this in the next edition. That being said, I haven't found another book that I like better.

This book is very useful for IELTS . It gives more information about the Do's and Don'ts and also about the best way to crack the exam. The practice tests are more useful. This book is not only for getting good score in IELTS but also for day to day communication methodologies.
I strongly recommend this book.
