I am practicing for TOEFL ibt. Through the process, I met some disturb problems. Begin with reading passages, I worked with some books like: Delta keys, barron IBT and How to master skill for the Toefl ibt - advanced level. I did quite well, expecially in How to master skill for the Toefl ibt book. From these, i begin running in actual test but it were happened some serious problems. I could not complete all the answers from test, it was just about more than 50%. Oh oh, serious! I so feel confusedly now.
Can anyone offer me some advices?
Thank u so much!

Hi chienvlqt,

Do you plan to take the GMAT as well? If yes, get started with the RC passages and try to understand them. Rephrase the main ideas in your own words. That forces you to really understand what you just read. If you understand these passages, the TOEFL passages are a piece of cake.
A great platform to study is Englishtown.com, because they combine writing, reading and listening in a very relaxed atmosphere with a new topic every day. That will increase your vocabulary without having to study long lists of them.

They offer also dedicated TOEFL prep, which helped me to score in the 92th percentile.

Hope that helps.

Try getting right material study.
For instance, I extensively studied Cliff's Toefl, which was a great grammar source.
As for increasing your RC skills, the best option is to read as many books in English as possible. The knowledge of vocabulary is

Do you read whole passage and then answer questions? If yes, don't do that. Read first question, then first paragraph, then second question, second paragraph and so on.
