In general, we don't recommend the use of most free online IELTS study materials – your IELTS score is too important.

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:

www.ielts.org/pdf/Information_for_Candidates_2010.pdf
www.ielts.org/pdf/Information_for_Candidates_2009.pdf

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).

For complete sample test pages http://ielts.org/test_takers_information/test_sample.aspxx

And one of the best free IELTS test resources on the net?

https://www.teachers.cambridgeesol.org/ts/

...it cannot be expected to give you what the best books do, but is a helpful and well-managed resource.
