The Academic Reading section in the IELTS test consists of 3 passages that are mostly related to science, social science, sociology or anything of general interest. It is usually taken from journals or newspapers.
These three passages are arranged from the easiest to the hardest (i.e) the first passage is the easiest and the third being the hardest.
This eBook contains 50 reading tests (150 Passages) that appeared in the recent IELTS exam. The tests are sourced from recent test takers and thus are authentic.
These questions are of different question types:
✓ multiple choice
✓ sentence completion
✓ true or false
✓ diagram completion
✓ match the headings
An answer key is provided towards the end of the book and is verified by certified IELTS Trainers.
