Offtopic - TOEFL [#permalink] New post 17 Aug 2006, 11:08
I still have to take the TOEFL exam in autumn and I was just wondering if anyone could give me advice what to expect. I've heard that TOEFL is much easier than GMAT Verbal (I scored 38 in GMAT Verbal). I need to score 600 or 250 (computer-based) - is it hard to achieve?

I'm also planning a short preparation (2 weeks max.) - could you recommend me any useful books? Thanks.

Hi likar,

It's my next main step after GMAT. Like u, i have no idea on the level of difficulty of the TOEFL. I need a score of at least 250 as well. I feel that my long journey is far to be completed. ;)
I just hope to conclude the GMAT step with success as u did. By the way, thanks for your inspiring debriefing. :)

I'm very interested about the result of this post :).

Could somebody give us more information about it? :)

Guys,

TOEFL is very easy compared to GMAT verbal. I wrote it last year in the month of Sept. I had literally no time, I went through the Barrons TOEFL over weekend (arrived from Seoul on Friday night at 11:30pm) & wrote on Monday & ended up in 280+ ;)

So, about a week may be enough to score good in TOEFL :) Your GMAT verbal is 38, don't worry man TOEFL is nothing for you...

TOEFL is completely a piece of joke compared to GMAT
I score 107 on ibt TOEFL with 27/30 on reading
but end up with verbal only 13 on 1st attempt in gmat
and 16 on 2nd attempt.

Don't worry about it.
3-4 days preparation would be more than enough 8-)

i don't think 3-4 days will be enough to become familiar with TOEFL.
TOEFL consists of four parts: Reading, Listening, Speaking, Writing.
to get a good score you need to practice, take some diag tests.

As most of you said, TOEFL is a silly joke compared with GMAT!! I studied the iBT official guide in a week and I scored 106 (equivelant to 622 on paper based ). Don't worry about it! Just practice and get familiar with speaking to the PC on the mic :), and time management also is important but its not as difficult and tight as GMAT !!

Good Luck!

Hey Moza,
Could you confirm how long ETS took to publish the iBT score ?

their FAQ states (approx) 2 weeks from test day ... Today's the 14th day post my test date, and I'm wondering how long they'll make me wait :)

Cheers

Just want to say that I have concluded with TOEFL... 104 (sadly, with only 20 in speaking... Was my spoken english too fast & full of french accent :p)

Good luck for all who have to pass this test. :)

I think it's sufficient for any school - they don't seem to be obsessive about TOEFL score, just want to be sure you can communicate.
