Test-Taking Tips for The Computer-Based TOEFL
Below are some useful test-taking tips for those planning to take the computer-based TOEFL.

Test-Taking Suggestions
Use the tutorials. To be comfortable with all sections of the test, spend as much time as you need with the tutorial for each timed section.

Become familiar with the formats and requirements of each section of the test. To use the allotted time for each section wisely, familiarize yourself with how to use the computer and the types of materials, questions, and directions that are in the test.

Read the directions carefully. The directions at the beginning of each section will tell you the total number of questions in the section and time allowed for the section. They explain exactly what is required to answer each question type and can be reviewed as needed.

Read each question carefully and thoroughly. Before answering a question, determine exactly what is being asked. Always read and understand all possible answers. If you do not, you may miss important information.

Pace yourself so that you have enough time to answer every question. Pay attention to the number of questions and the amount of time remaining during your testing session. Do not spend too much time on a single question.

Answer every question in each section. This will allow you to get your best possible score.

In Listening and Structure, confirm your answer only when you are certain you are ready to move on to the next question. You cannot omit questions or go back and change answers. If you do not know the answer to a question, eliminate any answer choices that are obviously incorrect. In Reading, you will be allowed to go back and change your answers.

Use the Writing topics to practice for the Writing section of the test. You will have 30 minutes to compose your assigned essay. You may either handwrite your essay or type it on the computer.
