I had solved only around 10 or 15 mock tests before the exam, but I tackled each of them turn by turn without having so much rest after each section. So, I used to practice all three sections as listening, reading and writing in turns without taking a break after each part. Also, I watched documentaries without subtitles and read articles from the newspaper called the Economist ( the segment labeled as Science and Technology) As for the speaking section, I practiced speaking on daily basis with two other candidates that I met here .
Great, thanks for the information. I'm a huge supporter of thinking outside the box and rather than just studying IELTS exams, also doing other things such as watching English movies and having conversations in English.
I'm glad it went well for you
