Error in speaking question 1 answer : consequential ? [#permalink]
13 Nov 2012, 03:49
Hi, I was doing an official practice test of the TOEFL this morning. In my answer to question 1 of the speaking part (which asked "What book would you most like to read that you haven't read yet ?"), I gave the wrong title of the book I was thinking of. I was thinking of "The Recognitions, by William Gaddis", but I said "The Corrections, by William Gaddis" (The Corrections is actually a Jonathan Franzen book). I then proceeded to give the reasons why I wanted to read The Recognitions.
Is my mistake in the title of the book an important one ? Would it weigh heavily on my grade in the actual test (assuming the corrector know the book I'm talking about) ?
