    I intend to sit for the IELTS exams and wonder when the next date of the examination will be, and how to register. This inquiry becomes necessary because your website does not open when click ‘continue’. Also, be kind enough to let me know how and where to procure the CD-ROM with other textbooks for the preparation of the exams.

    A perfect way to register for the test is to visit or . When you register through any of these sites you get free materials and free intensive lectures. I registered there and attended lectures for about two months for free and the materials too are very very extensive. Scored 8.0 on my IELTS so, I wouldn't mind telling others about them cos they really helped me. You can check them out.
