Ensure you get the IELTS score you need. The IELTS test has a very specific format and a preparation course is recommended even for native English speakers. 

I attended the IELTS workshop that was held on Saturday the 29th November 2010 and subsequently I have written the exam. 
The exam was not easy, but by attending the workshop, and trying some of the mock exams, I felt that I knew what was expected of me, and in a way was prepared for the exam. 

Familiarity with the structure of the test has been proven to increase scores. 

You can prepare for the IELTS test in the following ways: 

1. IELTS Workshop
