if you've got friends or family in the states, the easiest and cheapest way is to order all your books on amazon, get them shipped to an address in the states, and then have your friends/family send them to you abroad via US Postal at media mail rates (a special cheaper rate for books, magazines, etc.)

Just be careful how they're being sent...anytime I received anything shipped USPS I paid no customs, but the few times I got something UPS or FedEx, they charged me A TON - like almost as much as the stuff was worth. Thinking about it, I knew a guy that got a lot off of Amazon and never paid customs...

Yes. They have offices outside the US. By the way, my tests arrived much sooner than I expected, in about 2-3 weeks.
Regarding the registration, it seems to be different in the US, but I registered for the test a few hours before deadline (I did it twice), so it seems not to matter.
