Hi! I teach IELTS too! I find "IELTS practice test" by Peter May (oxford university press) quite good. The Cambridge sets are good too but very expensive. On the other hand, I find "IELTS practice test 1" by James Milton (published by Express publishing) a total waste of time and money. The tests are unnecessarily difficult, the book is full of typing mistakes and most of the keys provided are wrong! Ciao from Italy! Alessandra

Hi, Alessandra! I'm not sure if I have encountered Peter May's book. I will check it out. Thanks for also pointing out Milton's book.

I like this site. really it ll be helpful for the people who are going to take the IELTS exam. i took that exam and got 7. the problem i faced is lack of expert persons who can give me the desired suggestions. i took preparation at home and the only obstacle i faced is self judgment in the writing and speaking module. i think this site ll help to solve the writing problems. but it ll be better if anyone can give the link of the soft copy where the books can be found.
