    IELTS resources

    Iíve decided to prepare to IELTS on my own.
    I know that something like the best workbook doesnít exist. Some workbook which is perfect for me, may not be for other people, but which one would you recommend to study at home? I believe that I am on B2 level.

    Please note my corrections above. Are you looking for a straight grammar guide or a book just with exercises?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: IELTS resources

    Get a coursebook published by a reputable publisher which is aimed at the specific band bracket that you're going for and work systematically through it. I'm guessing that you're realistically aiming for a band score of around 6.5.

    There are plenty of books of genuine past papers to use for practice, but you should ask questions on places like here to see why you were right/wrong.
