Important books for reading, one called improve your reading skills and another one called official ielts Cambridge. These 2 books teach you how to answer reading properly. I advise you to practise 3 reading together with timing less than 60 min. Secondly, the best effective strategy in reading is to read first 2 questions and highlight the key wards like names with capital letters, date, occasion and then search for them in the first and second paragraph by skimming and scanning strategies and so on.
Speaking is an easy task for most of us. We are not poor at speaking , actually we don’t converse with people in English , on daily basis. Following TIPS may prove useful.
IELTS speaking consists of 3 parts
1) FIRST PART
It will be a brief introductory interview. Your name , occupation , place etc , and he will start conversing about any topic eg. Shopping , friends , workplace , etc.
