BOOKMARKED
I took the GMAT and the TOEFL at the same week - I was so exhausted by preparation that I decided to kill both beasts at the same week. I spent 3 evenings preparing for the TOELF.

My result is 112
Listening 30
Speaking 27
Writing 29
--
Take a trial test to learn the format
Reading: Learn stupid rare words for Reading section, here is where I lost 4 points.. There is a book called '400 words for TOELF' that contains all of them. Tackle questions one by one and don't worry about the time - I finished reading +15 min

Listening: DON'T note down everything that you hear, instead focus on main ideas only. I wrote like 2-3 pages per conversation so it was hard to look through these notes. I also irritated the test mentor coz he needed to bring my new papers 3 or 4 times . You'll have enough time - I finished +5 min in each section

Writing: For me the challenge was the 1st essay - I simply did not know how and what to write? But I found an answer and I highly recommend this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUdCFcbdCzc
he presents very clear guidelines and examples + he's a bit nerdy so it's fun to watch him
VERY IMPORTANT: don't forget about the word count! The more the better! I wrote both essays at 440 words just because I forgot the wordcount matters!!!

Speaking: watch videos recommended at the forum's sticky topic, make notes on post-it and just practice delivering various stuff. And don't worry about right or logical answers - just tell whatever makes sense grammar and structure-wise. Listen to great radio DJs to get an idea how to talk on ANY topic

Hi,

Thanks a ton for the tips. I checked the '400 must have words for toefl' by Lynn Stafford-Yilmaz & Lawrence Zwier suggested by you. But I found the words too easy.
So, will i not see any other words in the exam apart from the ones in this book?\

Thanks
