I got my TOEFL score today - 111.

Reading 29 Writing 30 Listening 28 Speaking 24.

Prepared 3 days using Official Guide - TOEFL and the videos/templates on this site - sticky thread. I was stumped by the test -the templates and videos came to my rescue. Thank you GMAT Club.

Basically gave one test figured out that speaking was my weakest section as is evident from my score. Spend the rest of the time practising the speaking section. I feel this is section you can practise if you want to prepare any longer - one or two weeks. I modifed the speaking templates as I was not able to finish the speaking section within time following all the points.

TOEFL has a fixed pattern so the templates can be used mostly without any worry - there may be 1-2 curveballs so be prepared to be flexible.

Though got 29 in Reading was surprised by the toughness-length of the passages. They were tough in comparision with the TOEFL tests on the CD. I would suggest to buy the TOEFL Online test that comes with the package or practise RC questions from the book. I donot know how I managed 29 was expecting 24. Maybe there is a relative grading.

Congratulations! How did you find the speaking section? I've heard some people complain about the mike, and the background noise in the test centre. Did you have any such issues?

There was certainly some noise during the speaking section coming from the background. Nothing worrying though. You are wearing a mike listening to the questions so that decreases the noise somewhat. Raters take into account the background noise. Its a constant for everybody and people score 30 in the speaking section. You are asked to adjust the voice in the mike twice - so no worries here.
Still taking the online TOEFL test really prepares you for the User Interface of the actual TOEFL and hence would recommend that.
