    advice for taking ielts test

    Sorry guys, I don't know where else to put this thread. Please don't delete it if this is the wrong section.


    So I'm taking an ielts test next month and I was wondering if you have any tips or advice for me. It can be anything, about the 4 skills or about how to keep calm in the test room, anything at all.


    Your help is greatly appreciated, especially if it's from your own experience :)


    Also, I'm running dangerously low on practice material. Anyone know any good book?

    Are you using the Cambridge IELTS past papers books? You can see information here- Cambridge University Press (search with the term "cambridge ielts" and it will bring them up directly). You can get them on Amazon or any online bookstore.

    I've already gone through all of them. What I need more now is advice on how to take the test. Any first hand tip?
