How to use this eBook

We hope you find this eBook helpful.  Rather than work through it page by page, the best thing is to refer to it whenever you have a difficulty or are in doubt over a particular point.  The eBook is based on the most commonly occurring problems that the author has found during his many years of tutoring and testing.  Language is best learned in response to need and so referring to it when you have the need is most effective.  However, if you read it through and come to a particular point that you have not been aware of, dwell on that point a bit but it is important then to deliberately set out to use it as well.

If there is anything that you need that is not there, then we would be pleased to hear so that it can be added to the next edition of the ebook. Email your suggestion to marketing@islpr.org and if it’s included in the new edition, you will go in the drawer to win a free copy of the new edition.

Our office will be closed to the public from 5:00 pm on Friday, 16 December 2022.  We will reopen on Friday, 6 January 2023 with normal business hours.

All results will be posted by the close of business (COB) Monday, 19 December 2022. If you have any urgent questions while we are closed, please email accounts@islpr.org.

We would like to take this time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
