How come the 6th video for speaking section is not working any more?
Does anyone of you have notes how to structure the answer and take notes for 6th question?

This is rearding Q1 in Writing section. The video talks about a specific structure i.e. Opinion then Reason 1 etc etc. But on internet and Barron book I found different kinds of passages. Some where just explanatory biology passages or arts passages.

Can anyone please confirm in the real test what kind of passage comes...???

The best way to find mistakes in your speaking is to have a listening partner.
However, if you cant find one, my personal tip - just use a tape recorder , tape your speach and play back several times to improve on accent, tone, clarity etc.

Be sure to give a proper and clear conclusion for each speaking question.

i just gave the toefl today. speaking question 3,4,5 and 6 templates matched perfectly with my exam questions. However, speaking questions 1 and 2 were different. I would suggest that people do not go into the exam room with premeditated answers for questions 1 and 2, because even though the questions were easy, i lost precious second due to the surprise factor.

For writing question 1, the template in the video fits perfectly and is highly recommended.
However, for writing question 2, I found the video provided to be of little use. Luckily, I found another great free resource online. I briefly studied from there for about 30-40 mins yesterday and I must say that I am very very happy about the independent essay I was able to write in my exam today.

http://www.english-itutor.com/TOEFL_writing_mentor.html
this is the link for that tutorial. it doesn't seem to be working now, but worked just fine for me yesterday. if it doesn't work, google the keywords ' toefl writing mentor '.

Ig you see my sticky post about the best links to tackle the TOEFL rainshaw is the first resource. However, the fact that now is offline concern me a lot because the exam is a bit changed and I have to retake because are expired the two years

Thank you so very much for these videos. I gave my TOEFL recently and got 28 in writing and 27 in speaking.

I gave my TOEFL preps only 4 hours since I had my GMAT the previous day. All I did was view these videos. I had a map like this instructor suggests and that is what I drew in my break. I really liked the countdown for seconds that he provides.

I didn't even have time for much practice so I simply reviewed 5 questions of each kind for listening and recorded myself on my ipad and listened for review. By the time it was time for the test, the response construct was very familiar.

For writing, I didn't practice much. Chinese Burned's AWA and this video gives you a good structure and that should be enough.

Hi guys,

Just wanted to share my experience with Notefull.

I applied to bschool this year and was really stressed with the speaking part. When I came across Notefull's free videos two days before the exam I just tried to memorize the strategies advocated and created templates for each question. Then just practiced the templates in 3 exams and it really worked.

I scored a solid 111/120 (R:28;L:28;S:29;W:26) and great part of the help came undoubtedly from Notefull. If I had found it earlier probably would have scored even better (I think I could have done better in the writing section). Even though the TOEFL is just a part of the application process, a good english level surely helps to get into top mba's. Happily I was admitted in London Business School's MBA programme beginning this August.

If you are interested in knowing more about Notefull please check its website: https://av107.isrefer.com/go/nfh/rsn64160/

Apart from the great free materials they have, there are a lot of paid courses (not that expensive). You can check them here: https://av107.isrefer.com/go/toefl-products/rsn64160/

Good luck to everyone!!

Cheers, Ricardo

Thank you for the useful videos. I watch one of them every day, they're really helpful. I'm going to take a TOEFL exam and if there are any other videos/materials like this, I'd be glad to learn about them.
Also, I want to ask if webinars are helpful, too. I'm asking, because I found this webinar on Karhanyan online school and if it is useful, please let me know. Otherwise, I don't want to waste my time.

Just got my TOEFL results, 118 out of 120, lost 2 points in the speaking section.
I've never had any problems with english, but after my GMAT experience (got a 750 on the eve before the exam and on the real thing got a 710) I decided not to take any chances. I took the TOEFL on a Saturday and spent from Wed-Fri at night studying for the exam.

This should be one of the easiest, specially if you have already studied for the GMAT. Just don't waste time reading the whole thing before answering the questions, skip rightaway to the first question and if it's a specific question regarding the meaning of a word or something like that go straight to the right answer and don't lose time. Normally only the last question in each reading requires for a full understanding of the passage.
The session is rather easy in the end, just be careful with timing

Listening >>
I've listened to the practice questions on the sample exam ETS provides. It's rather easy, but you have to be careful not to lose focus during the passage. A good way I found to avoid this was to keep notes of everything in the order it showed in the passage. For most of the questions you won't use your notes, but it's a good solution if u tend to get distracted.

Speaking >>
This is where I spent some hours studying for real. Learn the structure of each question and how to structure your answer, these videos are great for this, but you also should be prepared for some small variations. Try spending some of the extra time in the reading/listening sections and also the break to prepare your answers for this part.
Also, this is a great website for practicing http://www.eng1on1.com/ibt.php?test=1

Writing >>
Same as AWA on GMAT, learn the structure you are using for each of the questions. The videos above should be enough. Try also to spare some free time to prepare your stucture ahead during the break or some extra minutes you get in the first sections.
