This book on reading is part of an interesting new series aimed at B2 students preparing to take the Cambridge English First exam. Each of the twelve topic-based units focuses on a sub-skill of reading, such as understanding implication, coherence, reading for gist and deducing the meaning of unknown words. Each of these sub-skills is explained clearly. Useful guidance is offered on exam techniques. There are frequent ‘mini-tasks’ which engage the reader.
