    Hi.....i just took the toefl iBT today and they've changed it since Sept. 2005. Basically it's 4 hours long and consists of a reading, listening, writing, and speaking sections. It's all done on the computer. You should practice online at their site. As far as studying is concerned, it all depends on which level of English comprehension you are on. Hope that helped a bit. Good Luck on the test :thumbup:

    The toefl ibt is scored in a range of 0-120, 100=250 of cbt.
    the individual scores for each section is similar to the cbt as 0-30. the speaking section is scored in scale of 0-4. i hope this helps.

    Well m_shu............i didn't use any books for toefl because i grew up here so i don't have a problem with english. What i suggest you do is that go to a bookstore......(if you are in the US) Barnes & Noble or Borders.....and look thru the books they have for Toefl.....you should definitely study for this test because it's not as easy as you think. The speaking part wasn't bad. Try the online test they offer on their website. If you need any more help just ask

    Good Luck On the Toefl.....................

  13. i had taken the exam well there is really no confined book the only thing i would say is do well in reading comp. its pretty hard. you can check out with the gre or cat books. you can learn how to prepare and do the examples they give you. it is the best way. it gives you an idea and control how to do it. each time you do it time your self which is very imp.
    well all the best to you
    do well :thumbup:
