Practise and Pass Preliminary for Schools is an exam preparation book for school-age students who are preparing for the Cambridge English: Preliminary (PET) for Schools examination. Practise and Pass Preliminary for Schools has been written for students who need to prepare and practise for the Cambridge English: Preliminary (PET) for Schools examination over a relatively short period or alongside another course book. It provides around 30 hours of material. Practise and Pass Preliminary for Schools focuses on exam preparation in a fun and interesting way, providing students with the necessary exam skills together with a wide-ranging revision of the essential vocabulary and grammatical structures required at this level. It is based on the Cambridge English: Preliminary (PET) for Schools syllabus. It is divided into three sections that cover the Reading & Writing, Listening and Speaking parts of the exam.
It is based on a three-step programme: Prepare, Practise and Pass: in the Prepare section, it introduces and revises key topic vocabulary, together with commonly-tested grammatical and lexical points; in the Practise section, students develop an understanding of what each exam question requires through a variety of confidence-building practice materials; in the Pass section, the language and skills they have acquired in the previous sections is tested in an exam-style task. It finishes with a comprehensive Practice Test covering the three exam areas: Reading & Writing, Listening and Speaking Components: Student's Book (with complete Practice Test, plus irregular verb list); Teacher's Book (with audio CD; key and tapescript; general tips and exam tips for the students; photocopiable extra Speaking practice material).
