Hey Simon,

I gave my General Training exam on June 24th the second time and your website helped me immensely in scoring the marks i needed. I had needed a 7+ in each module and this is how i fared:
(L, R, W, S) - 8, 9, 7, 7.5
Overall Band - 8

I was able to improve my listening and reading scores by solving all your exercises and also by solving the Cambridge IELTS general training 11 and the Official Cambridge Guide. Also worked on exercises from ieltsliz.com
Improved my score from the first attempt which was:
(L, R, W, S) - 7.5, 6, 7, 8
Overall Band - 7

Please continue to do what you're doing! You're simply amazing at what you do and this has helped a lot of people like me.

Cheers,
Yasha

Also to add, your advice on understanding the passages rather than skimming and scanning helped me a lot. Rather than reading fast i tried to understand the 3rd passage and aimed to finish the first 2 sections in 30 mins so that i have more time for section 3. Thanks for that valuable advice! It worked for me in improving my reading scores. These exercises are fun and i still feel like solving them after getting my scores!LOL!
Good Luck Simon for everything! I'm thankful to you

1,D exaggerate their claims.=overstate their arguments
2,C more criticism than others.= they are doing more harm than good

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1 D
exaggerate their claims = overstate their arguments

2. C
Some receive more criticism than others = A trade organisation is seen as self-interested. Yet a green organisation is seen as altruistic.

...

Congratulations Yasha. Great scores, and I'm glad my lessons and advice helped!

Dear Simon Sir

I am a vivid follower of you, and I fervently believe that you are the right teacher who gave me a lot. I reached 6.5, but now I need 7.

lots of blessings
