General Training reading is much more tricky than Academic reading. It is obvious from section one that despite the fact that one is already good at paraphrasing the reading takes his/her time to find the right answer. When I did it recently I ran out of time and forced to leave a number of questions to the last minutes. I think experience in doing such tests appear sensational.

In answering questions on "Reading", do we have to answer in words " exactly mentioned in the passage" or we can derive the answer? For ex: I was reading through the passage related to school, where it was mentioned,"As it is sunday today, the classes for new semester will commence from tomorrow at 9 AM". The question is fill the gap : The classes for new semester begins on ---. The correct answer is "Monday" but this word is nowhere mentioned in the passage but derives as today is sunday. Is this correct?

I am from Vietnam and I bought Cambridge book 9 which does not have similar page numbers like your book printed in UK. So, I hope that you could put the name of the reading topic and the page number everytime you give lesson likes this.
Thank you so much.
