E-GMAT has an IR specific online course that you may consider for strategy and some practice. It costs around 50 $, but i do not know how well it is rated by those that have taken it. Other then that, i think you are pretty much on your own, with books and practice questions from various sources (OG, Question PACK 1, Various CAT's and forums) .

Hi the nona!

I'm not one to normally "pitch" my company's products, but we do have an Essay/IR book that has some great tips/tricks, and lots of free resources (including a 2 hour workshop) here:
