TOP TIP S FOR IELTS Introduction Top Tips for /EL TS is an essential part of your revision for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test. Each of the four main sections (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking) follows the same structure and is based on a series of pieces of advice (the 'tips') which IELTS' materials writers have collected from many years' experience of involvement in the production of IELTS tests. Each section starts with a tip at the top of the page. The tip is followed by an example t~ken from IELTS material and a clear explanation to help you understand .. , exactly what it means. Each section ends with some more 'General tips' for that component. There is also a handy section at the beginning of the book on how to revise for IELTS and a very important section at the back on what you should do on the day of the test. There is a companion publication to this book, Top Tips for /EL TS General Training.
