    1. Im also an IELTS taker. I got the score that I needed with the help of JRooz Review Center. I trusted JROOZ Review Center because I know that they are accredited by both IDP and British Council. I took the IELTS exam last year. It was a shaky experience because I didn’t know how I will focus. But I just kept in mind the basic techniques JROOZ taught me. Thank God! I was able to reach my target score!
