A teacher's testimonial for 'Ace the IELTS'
___________________________________________

"Terrific book!

I teach IELTS and own over ten IELTS books. This is one of my favourites because the author has delivered excellent information in a short, user-friendly book.

Importantly, it is written in plain English so it is easy to understand. It focusses on plenty of useful tips and tricks which can be of great benefit for anyone who is going to take the IELTS test.

Other great features include appropriate phrases to use in the writing and speaking segments as well as an excellent study plan that students can use to prepare for the test.

It is a terrific book for IELTS preparation."

- D. Bottaro (Australia)


An educator's testimonial for 'Target Band 7'

"A welcome resource for busy test takers.

Target Band 7 breaks new ground in the IELTS materials market as its author has actually taken the IELTS test and achieved a high level! This makes the many explanations and tips really relevant and user-friendly and helps to connect the reader to the writer in an authentic way.

The book is organised into many, manageable sections, and written in a personal style, making the excellent suggestions for increasing an IELTS score easy for non-native speakers of English to access, read and to absorb.

Definitely a welcome resource for busy test takers."

It is a VERY good book for the IELTS exam preparation. It is especially helpful for the first writing assignment (diagram/graph/chart) and speaking section. However, it is not a full textbook: no CDs for listening, no texts for reading, no trial test, etc. I used this book along with several textbooks ("101 Helpful Hints for IELTS" and "Action Plan") and Cambridge practice tests (7 and 6). This books gives a rather good strategy, but it shouldn't be used alone for preparation. BTW, I got 8 score at the exam!

This is the MUST HAVE book if you are preparing yourself for IELTS. I always thought IELTS is about proficiency in English but i was wrong. IELTS is all about techniques and strategies in answering the 4 components of IELTS.

I have purchased the e-book a few months ago but didn't have time to sit in front of the computer quietly to study. With the hardcopy available now, i can bring it along wherever i go and it's really handy. It not only provides me with the necessary knowledge to sit for the IELTS but also improve my English generally. Thanks Simone for writing this book and i highly recommend this book if you are preparing for IELTS.

First i started without this book, but later by using this book my score going more better in practice exam, My advice is you can use this book as strong guide to target your IELTS Band in short time.
For Non-English people whom having good level in English they can use the same with some addtional practice exams...
all the best for all

Few weeks ago when I decided to retake IELTS I had a search on the internet for some useful information and noted target band 7.
I was curious about it and read all the recommendations and felt that I should give it a try.
From the beginning when I started to read this book I realised that it is exactly what people talking about. I went through the whole book and felt it is exactly what I need to conquer this exam. I 100% believe IELTS is about technique and you will be successful if you follow this book.
I'm now very confident to sit for this test but I do need a bit more time to practice.

Format: Paperback
If you have limited time (=less than 2 months) to take the test it may help you take the 6-7 band scores to pass the required minimum english levels that international universities want you to gain... But for more, especially academic test takers who are facing much rare words in the test need to effort more. There's also a possibility of luck because some tests are quite easy,but some test are from the outer space that if you don't have adequate vocabulary skills you can't pass the reading and it causes you to score less. This book may work effectively if you have enough time to develop your vocabulary or writing skills. You know better what are your disadvantages. You need to have more written sources to dominate english, but an effective book like target band 7 makes your route less,gives you an idea of the whole route and what you study additionaly will be your plus...
