Hi Which books did u refer for IELTS
Hi,

Practise all the exercises given along with IELTS material that you receive at the time of booking. This helps a lot in terms of

(i) Getting used to the accent of speakers for Listening
(ii)Kind of questions being asked in reading
(iii)What is expected in writing task 1 and 2, style expected, etc. (Go through each of the example answers given for writing tasks..make a note of important points like the introduction, cause&effects, possible solutions, expected results of the solutions, conclusion, etc.)

For speaking, try to converse in your own style and this alone fetches you a good score for sure.(Do go through Road to IELTS @ British Counsil website, after you register-not sure if IDP provides such online training material).

It is not necessary to make use of complex words to convey something(writing & speaking), make sure that the message is conveyed clearly to the examiner.

You can also use the plenty of IELTS practice tests available online.
I'm listing few sites that could be of help for you:

IELTS Exam Preparation - IELTS General Tests

CB IELTS Listening Practice test software

Do ask me if you need more info!!

Cheers
Subbaram.

HI anj, how are you.i just want to know whether we have to do the ielts test again for applying with DIAC, as we had already done when applying for ACT sponsorship.Further got a mail from business administration for ACT stating that they are also trying to change the process priorities with the DIAC for the people to migrate to Canberra who have been given the sponsorship and things should sorted out in 2010.lets hope for the best. (we have scored 7.5 overall)
