CAE Writing: recommended books

The Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is a very high level test. It’s the second among the exams offered by Cambridge University, and certifies an advanced level on the European scale. It demonstrates unequivocally that your level of English proficiency is very good and that you can comfortably and naturally navigate English to express yourself regarding pretty much anything that happens in your daily life, in your studies, and also at work. Obtaining this certificate, which is recognised worldwide and corresponds to level C1 on the European scale, will help you if you’re applying to study abroad in any English-speaking country. Clearly, passing the test isn’t easy, and you’ll need to do plenty of preparation in advance.

One of the more difficult parts of the exam is the writing portion. Here are some books to have a look at to bring your A-game to the exam. During this part of the test, which lasts an hour and a half, you’ll be requested to write about a few different written passages. These could be based on a variety of general topics and can be formatted as letters, articles, or essays.
