TOEFL: word count in writing section  [#permalink]

Hello everybody,

I am preparing for the TOEFL test next weekend and regarding the writing section, I was wondering about the different information on websites about the word count.

- How is the recommend word count in the question meant to be understood? Is it like the minimum I should write?

- What about a maximum number of words? I wrote 397 words in a test-run of the first writing question... does this have a negative impact on the score because it crosses an upper border?
Or is a general rule: the more the better?

It would be great if you can clarify this point. Thanks a lot!
