Cambridge IELTS 8 Student’s Book with Answers

: Official Examination Papers for University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations   

ISBN: 0521173787 

Susan's Comment

This book contains practice tests and answers, so you can take mock tests and then check how you scored. It also comes with a CD for the listening tasks.
Book 8 is the most recent; if you can’t get number 8 any of the others will do just as well. It doesn’t contain that many helpful hints and techniques so is useful if you just want to practise

This is targeted at teachers, but also useful for students. The activities build students up to the IELTS tasks. It covers all four tests (reading, listening, speaking, writing) and comes with a CD, but is quite expensive.
