This revised edition of PET Preparation and Practice introduces students to the Cambridge Preliminary English Test (1996 Revision), develops the skills required to pass and provides opportunities to assess progress through practice test questions.
The structure of the book follows the order of the skill components in the test - reading, writing, listening and speaking. Each part of each component is taken in turn and starts with a clear explanation of what is tested. The preparation exercises which follow develop student awareness of the tasks involved and give guidance on how best to answer each question.
Test practice is provided through three practice tests, two of which are integrated with the preparation work, and one which appears in full at the end of the book. This approach enables students to build up their confidence through systematic practice of examination techniques and regular test practice.
PET Preparation and Practice can be used to supplement course work on a general language course or for intensive exam preparation.
The Teacher's Introduction gives suggestions for how and when to use the book, and explains the mark scheme for the test. The Student's Introduction gives advice on how to use the book for self study purposes. A C90 cassette provides the preparation and practice material for the listening component of the test.
The With Answers edition contains a full answer key, including sample answers for writing questions and a transcript of all the recorded material.
