In general, we don't recommend the use of most free
online IELTS study materials – your IELTS score is too
Much of the free IELTS materials online is not written by
qualified IELTS teachers, and in some cases by non-native
English speakers with poor English skills. Of course,
non-native English speakers might have excellent English
skills, but a lot of what we see is unpublishable – except
on the internet.
Our advice is to check the source first.
But why not go to IELTS itself? Of course, they don't
give tips and tricks to "beat" their own test, but the
Information for Candidates flyer is essential reading:
Apparently, the 2010 link is to the latest
IELTS information flyer.
The 2009 link is the last flyer to show readable
sample test pages (but are incomplete).

And one of the best free IELTS test resources on the net?
...it cannot be expected to give you what the best books
do, but is a helpful and well-managed resource.
