These papers are free to download, and are about as close as you can get to the real exam.

Want to practise your writing? Try their Write & Improve tool, which gives you instant feedback in seconds. If speaking is your weakness, check out these Speaking test videos on YouTube, as well. And if all that’s not enough, their colleagues over at Cambridge University Press have made their Exam Booster books and audio free to download for the time being.
