Cambridge Vocabulary for IELTS Advanced

Many people are able to reach band 7 or above in reading and listening but remain stuck at band 6 or 6.5 in writing and speaking. One of the key problems is the attempt to use vocabulary that is overly complex or technical, or that is too informal for the test.  This book will help build your active vocabulary so you do not waste time learning lists of words that are inappropriate for the test, and  you can finally improve your writing and speaking score.  The book shows you how and when to use the words within the context of authentic IELTS exercises and practice tests.
