What is does it to tell you exactly the format of the exam. What to expect and how to expect it. It gives very good guide into translating and and explaining what the examiners will looking for from each section of all the modules of the exam. I wan to assure this book does well in explaining that.
It took a little bit of long time to be arrived since it came from Thailand. I realized that after I ordered but it was ok since it arrived safely anyway.
The contents looked great, the CD also arrived safely. The book came in a mint condition. Good purchase.
The content is concise and the tips provided in this are valuable.
The study pattern I followed was:
1. Read all the chapters and understand what kind of questions are asked in the exam in the first 4-5 weeks.
2. Solve the practice tests one each week. I think this took about 8 weeks.
The practice tests helped me out a lot, since the actual exam follows the exact same pattern as those given in the book. It gave me confidence for appearing for the test.
The accompanying CD was valuable as well - since it contains the audio for listening sections and provides a preview of how the speaking section is handled by students. Along with that, youtube videos are useful for speaking practice.
Only negative I can think of is the price - way too expensive for the content provided.
