Cynthia, Part 1 (overall band 6.5)

Fluency and Coherence - band 7 Lexical Resource - band 7
Able to keep going without noticeable effort. Some hesitation, but this does not affect coherence. Uses a range of linkers (so, because, on the other hand) and discourse markers. Demonstrates a range of vocabulary though inappropriacies occur. There is some ability to use less common items e.g. ‘stay-at-home-mum’, 'drives like crazy'.
Grammatical Range / Accuracy - band 7 Pronunciation - band 6
Both simple and complex sentences are used despite some errors. (present/past simple, present continuous/perfect). 'I have worked' used to talk about a past time). Generally understandable with some good use of word stress and intonation but the latter is overused due to obvious influence of the L1 (down-up intonation at the end of clauses and sentences). Also, some words (glamour, queens?) are difficult to comprehend and create difficulty for the listener.

iPass Ielts was most useful to my Ielts preparation. Firstly, it is not expensive at all. Secondly, you can practice everywhere and anytime you want, you just need to turn your computer on. Thirdly, the listening practice, by skype with Jenny and Nigel, is very helpful too. It will help you to develop your communication skills, discussing a wide range of topics which are frequently needed for your Ielts listening task. Lastly, I got an overall band of 7,5, just what I needed to get into my Master Degree. Thanks a lot, iPass Ielts.
