Hey guys,

Got a conditional offer for the LSE and need to pass an english test, either TOEFL or IELTS. I passed the TOEFL 2+ years ago and didn't really like the test (length, structure, speaking to a computer,...)

So I decided to take the IELTS this time. Plus, since I'm a native speaker, speaking to a person is an advantage for me - as opposed to talking to a screen. Also, I heard the IELTS is slightly easier than the TOEFL.

Here's my question:

What are the best IELTS preparation books out there? Are the official ones the best? or is there another kind that better prepares you?


Thanks

I have gone through quite a few tests in ESOL IELTS 9 and 7.But I feel that taking a mock test will be of great help as going through test in the Cambridge IELTS is quite different to sitting for an actual IELTS exam. Getting used to testing conditions would be very important for me,so are there any simulated tests available in the internet.Please provide the links of such tests.They'll be of great help to my preparation.Thanks in advance. :thanks

The International English Language testing system(IELTS) is one of the toughest English proficiency tests accepted. The test is taken by more than 2 million candidates every year and measures a person’s ability in English on 4 different parameters-Listening, reading, writing and speaking. Rather choosing many books or materials for the exam. It is advised to choose only few authentic books. One should know what skills are need in order to get high score in the exam.

One must know - try an find out your potential and loopholes and try to overcome it. Then only choose what are the resources needed for stimulating these skills.

Best Resources -

An ideal and experienced trainer- Before starting the exam one should consult with a trainer as these people are best players in their own sphere means- they can only give the right feedback to you for getting high bands.

Cambridge practice test - It is an authentic test to give the right approach for the candidate for preparation.

An ideal news paper, magazine and novel or journal.

English movies, news or interview will be beneficial.

Best of luck..!!!
