Straight to Advanced is a short, intensive course that prepares students for the Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) exam. This course comes with a full set of standardised print and digital components that allow students to become confident with CAE exam topics through further practice of Listening, Reading and Writing and Use of English tasks.

For students, the print components consist of the Student's Book (with or without Answers Keys) and the Workbook (with or without Answers Keys). A unique code from the Student's Book provides access to the Student's Resource Centre, Digital Student's Book and an Online Workbook, where a host of extra material and resources can be found.
