This book comprises three parts.

PART ONE

A clear, concise presentation of the most important grammatical phenomena tested at this level.
Each grammar section is followed by exercises in the style of the FCE. This will help candidates
consolidate the knowledge of grammar and structure they have gained during previous years of
study. As a result, candidates will feel more confident in their use of the language, and more able
to cope with the Use of English section of the FCE Practice Tests that follow in Part Two.

PART TWO

Six complete practice tests for the CAMBRIDGE FCE examination, which have been compiled
following close evaluation of past examinations and sample material. The content, level and format
of each practice test accurately reflect those of the examination.

ñ Reading texts include newspaper and magazine articles, reports, fiction, advertisements,
correspondence, messages and informational material (brochures, guides, manuals and so on).

ñ Writing tasks cover e-mail, letter, article, essay, report, review and story, and focus on
advising, apologizing, comparing, describing, explaining, expressing opinion, justifying,
persuading, recommending and suggesting.

ñ Use of English (multiple-choice cloze, open cloze, word formation, key word transformation)
focuses on grammatical, lexical and lexico-grammatical phenomena.

ñ Listening material includes monologues (answerphone messages, information lines,
commentaries, radio documentaries and features, instructions, lectures, news, public
announcements, advertisements and publicity material, reports, speeches, stories and
anecdotes, talks) and interacting speakers (conversations, discussions, interviews, quizzes,
radio plays, transactions), and uses a variety of voices, styles of delivery and accents.

ñ Speaking tasks focus on general interaction, social language, comparing, describing,
expressing and justifying opinions, exchanging ideas, agreeing and / or disagreeing,
suggesting, speculating, evaluating and reaching a decision through negotiation.
