I am delighted to share the great news – ‘Ace the IELTS’ and ‘Target Band 7’ made it again to the list of Top 10 IELTS Books, published by Test Study Guides website. This was a very nice surprise, and they even created a special badge for us!
It’s a big honour to appear on the same Top 10 list with big and well-known publishers such as Cambridge and Barron’s, and I am thankful to all the readers for favouring my books.
I feel humbled by the very kind reviews published on Test Study Guides, it is amazing to receive this kind of recognition. Here is what they said about my books (this is the short version, you can read the full reviews here):
Target Band 7: IELTS Academic – How to Maximize Your Score
“Written by a former IELTS test-taker herself, Simone Braverman’s Target Band 7 is an easy-to-use and easy-to-understand strategic guide to the Academic IELTS. This popular prep book’s overarching goal is to help test-takers reduce the time that it takes to solve typical problems and assist them in avoiding common mistakes.
Providing useful tips for content and for techniques, Braverman tackles each of the four sections of the IELTS with concise and helpful advice. Of particular note are the sample exercises provided in the book as well as the materials dealing with topic construction. In addition, one of the most appealing characteristics of this prep book is the clear language and personable writing style that Braverman uses, thereby ensuring comprehension of the multitude of useful techniques she offers for conquering every section of the test. Finally, as an added bonus, the book also features a detailed study plan.”
Ace the IELTS: IELTS General – How to Maximize Your Score
“For those focusing on the IELTS General Module, this book is a must have. Focusing both on substance and strategy, Simone Braverman’s second book comprehensively covers every module of the test and, even more importantly, provides unique techniques and tips for conquering the actual taking of the test as well.
Written in simple and easy-to-understand language, this book is designed to efficiently and effectively improve IELTS General Module scores. While the book itself does not provide sample tests, it does provide links to online practice tests where the skills learned from this book can be practiced.
Already used and trusted by countless previous test-takers, this is a simple yet effective book for the IELTS General Module.”
P.S. As you probably know, even though practice tests are not included in the books, we do provide them as a free bonus with e-books ‘Ace the IELTS’ and ‘Target Band 7’ – so all our readers have a chance to get a lot of practice while preparing for their exams.
