How can I prepare for the OET?

Detailed information about each sub-test, its assessment and how to prepare can be found on our Test Information page. 

Free Sample Test Materials can be downloaded from the OET website as well.

The OET Bookshop has a range of official OET practice materials.  OET books include sample tests and short study guide, Listening books also come with CDs.  Books and their associated costs can be found and ordered via Order Books. 

Currently, the OET does not directly offer any preparation courses.  However, there is a list of OET Preparation Course Providers offered on the OET website. 

Also it may be helpful for you to register for an OET masterclass, a candidate information session which covers all four subtests, which is free to register for.  You will find the information and a link to register on our website here.


Please be advised that the OET does not endorse any providers or programs, and has no links with any of these organisations. The information given to us comes from the providers’ own materials. We do not take responsibility for the content of external websites.
