Every IELTS or the International English Language Testing System examination candidate has this fear of taking the examination. I know that most individuals who are scheduled for the examination have read a lot of blogs or posts online telling their own experiences while preparing for the exam. As a matter of fact, I was also one of these people who relied on the blogs’ advice on how to take the IELTS. However, I felt that I needed to learn more so I decided to look for an IELTS review center.

Upon checking online, two names were immediately suggested by different forums and even Google itself – 9.0 Niner and JRooz review centers. There were a lot of testimonials written for both review centers saying how satisfied they were with the training and practice the centers have. I scanned through their programs and found out that they have almost the same course packages offered to prospect clients. The cost difference was not at all different either. Choosing between the two was really difficult, so I had to ask some of my friends who also took the IELTS exam last year. Luckily, I have a friend of mine who also took the IELTS and told me to visit JRooz review center for it was nearer to my workplace.

Upon arriving at JRooz, I saw a number of students rushing to their classes. I was able to talk to one of their personnel and she discussed every single detail that I should know about the program. I was really interested with how they do their classes so I asked to sit in one of the classes. Inside the classroom was a totally academic environment. The lecturer was really friendly and accommodating. Listening to his discussions made me feel that I needed to be in this class. Hence, on that day, I enrolled for an IELTS program in JRooz.

The classes went by and I spent three months reviewing with them. It was a little difficult to adjust since my English skills were not that satisfactory. However, with the help of the teachers, I was able to improve until the day of my exam.

It was to my surprise that I got an overall band score of 7.5 in my IELTS test. I needed 7 for my application and I got even better. Now, I am here in Australia practicing my nursing profession. I would not be here right now without the efforts and constant encouragement of the teachers in JRooz. I am really happy reviewing and I will surely make you proud that I am one of your students. More power to JRooz and continue making your students’ dreams become a reality.

Everybody knows how important it is to achieve one’s target score in the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination. It is very challenging for an individual to get their target scores in just one take. With this in mind, Filipino candidates for the IELTS prepare for a long time for their scheduled examinations. One preparation that they do is signing up for reviews in IELTS review centers. The real deal here is finding the right IELTS review center as hundreds of it are to be found in the Philippines. To guide you with your decision on a specific test center, here are some points that your can check in finding the best IELTS review center.


When we say accessibility, this refers to the location of the IELTS review school. Why is its location an important criterion? Nobody would like to enrol in a review center outside the city or far from their work or homes. A good IELTS review school should be somewhere in the city center. It should be located in a place where it can be found easily.

Course Programs

Say for example you have found an IELTS review school, now is the time to inquire regarding their course programs. The best IELTS review center presents a study course where the four components of the IELTS – speaking, reading, listening, and writing – are addressed. Additionally, an IELTS review center should be able to conduct a pre-test to determine your strengths and weaknesses in the English language. Also, the materials to be used in their classes should be up-to-date with the latest trends in the IELTS examination. Finally, the course program should include regular mock tests to check your progress in the duration of the program. This will help you know the things that you have to improve on your skills.


Review centers can be pretty expensive but it should be compensated with a good course program. As an enrolee, the review you should be getting should be worth the price you are paying. Some review centers offer unlimited review and extensive reviews depending on your need. 

There are many IELTS review schools in the Philippines that finding the best for you can be difficult. Hence, with the points mentioned above, it will guide you, the candidate, to make a good decision in choosing the best IELTS review center. Do not rush in making a decision, think about it and weigh your options.

The cover for the fifth installment of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series is already revealed. It will be available on May 8, 2012. Here it is: 

Below, you could read some teaser from the upcoming book. Find out what will happen to Jace and Clary's love story and adventure. Oh don't forget about Alec, Isabelle, Magnus, and of course Simon!!!

Teaser #1:

    “Magnus made a soft, pleased sound, and he gripped the back of Alec’s shirt.”

Teaser #2:

    “He is a Shadowhunter,” said Jocelyn. “His loyalty will be to Clave and Covenant.”

    “He’s my friend,” said Magnus coldly. “His loyalty is to me.”

Teaser #3:

    “You stole a boat,” she snapped. “What am I doing with you, you boat-stealing lunatic?”

Teaser #4:

    “Sebastian never does anything just for fun.” Jace took Clary’s hand and pulled her toward him. “But I do.”

Teaser #5:

    “Is he happy like this? Really happy? And if he is, what are you saving him from?”

Teaser #6:

    “Well, hello there, Mother,” Sebastian said in a voice like silk. “Surprised to see me?”

Teaser #7:

    “You think I’m gone, but I’m not. I’m still watching you. All of you. Especially you … Simon.”

Teaser #8:

    “I need Jace,” said Sebastian. “But in his heart, he’s not like me. But *you * are.”

Teaser #9:

    “You’re a Lightwood,” she said. “Your family never gives up. I knew you wouldn’t let what I said to you that night well enough alone.”

Teaser #10:

    “You have a dark heart in you, Valentine’s daughter,” he said. “You just won’t admit it. And if you want Jace, you had better accept it. Because he belongs to me now.”

Teaser #11:

    “I don’t do false reassurances,” Izzy said, and pushed the tequila bottle away from her. Her eyes, on Jordan, were lively and dark. “Come here, werewolf boy.”

Teaser #12:

    “I never cared,” he said. “I wanted you anyway. I always wanted you.” – Jace

Teaser #13:

    “He reached her and held his hands out; she took them, and let him pull her to her feet. His pale gold eyes searched her face. “I want you with me,” he said. “But I want it to be your choice. Once we go, there’s no coming back.”

Teaser #14:

    “I know about parabatai,” said Magnus, an angry, dark undercurrent to his voice. “I’ve known parabatai so close they were almost the same person; do you know what happens, when one of them dies, to the one that’s left —?”

Teaser #15:

    “Don’t take this the wrong way, but you smell like Magnus.”

Teaser #16:

    “Warlock,” he said. “I know who you are.”
    Magnus raised his eyebrows. “You do?”
    “Magnus Bane. Destroyer of the demon Marabas. Son of——”
    “Now,” said Magnus, quickly. “There’s no need to go into all of that.”
    “But there is.” The demon sounded reasonable, even amused. “If it is infernal assistance you require, why not summon your father?”
    Alec looked at Magnus with his mouth open.

Teaser #17:

    “Every time we see each other we fall into bed — and I know I started it, I’m not blaming you— it’s just that maybe we should *talk*.”

Teaser #18:

    “That’s how faeries work, they don’t do favors.”

Teaser #19:

    “Alec isn’t happy,” said Magnus, as if she hadn’t spoken.

    “Of course he isn’t,” Isabelle snapped. “Jace —”

    “Jace,” said Magnus, and his hands made fists at his sides. Isabelle stared at him. She had always thought that he didn’t mind Jace; liked him, even, once the question of Alec’s affections had been settled. Out loud, she said:

    “I thought you were friends.”

    “It’s not that,” said Magnus. “There are some people — people the universe seems to have singled out for special destinies. Special favors and special torments. God knows we’re all drawn toward what’s beautiful and broken; I have been, but some people cannot be fixed. Or if they can be, it’s only by love and sacrifice so great it destroys the giver.”

    Isabelle shook her head slowly. “You’ve lost me. Jace is our brother, but for Alec — he’s Jace’s parabatai too —”

    “I know about parabatai,” said Magnus, his voice rising in pitch. “I’ve known parabatai so close they were almost the same person; do you know what happens, when one of them dies, to the one that’s left —”

    “Stop it!” Isabelle clapped her hands over her ears, then lowered them slowly. “How dare you, Magnus Bane,” she said.

    “How dare you make this worse than it is —”

    “Isabelle.” Magnus’ hands loosened; he looked a little wide-eyed, as if his outburst had startled even him. “I am sorry. I forget, sometimes . . . that with all your self-control and strength, you possess the same vulnerability that Alec does.”

    “There is nothing weak about Alec,” said Isabelle.

    “No,” said Magnus. “To love as you choose, that takes strength. The thing is, I wanted you here for him. There are things I can’t do for him, can’t give him . . .” For a moment Magnus looked oddly vulnerable. “You have known Jace as long as he has. You can give him understanding I can’t. And he loves you.”

    “Of course he loves me. I’m his sister.”

    “Blood isn’t love,” said Magnus, and his voice was bitter. “Just ask Clary.”

Teaser #20:

    “As far as I’m concerned, this is the worst thing that’s happened since I found out why Magnus was banned from Peru.” — Jace

Teaser #21:

    Alec quickly stripped down to his boxers and climbed into bed, hoping not to wake Magnus. However…

Teaser #22:

    “Simon, I’ve been trying to call you but it seems like your phone is turned off. I don’t…”

Teaser #23:

    “Why did you?” Clary asked.

    “Why did I what?”

    “Help me back there.”

    “You’re my sister.”

    She swallowed. In the morning light, Sebastian’s face had some color in it. There were faint burns along his neck where demon ichor had splashed him.

    “You never cared that I was your sister before.”

    “Didn’t I?” His black eyes flicked up and down her. “Our father’s dead,” he said. “There are no other relatives. You and I, we are the last. The last of the Morgensterns. You are the only one left whose blood runs in my veins, too. You are my last chance.”

Teaser #24

    “Kill me, little sister. Kill me and you kill Jace, too.”
