Thats a good score..
If the sound was that bad, you could have adjusted during the tutorial section or you could have reported to the test admin..
All the best for your TSE...
hello! i just finished my toefl today. i was able to finish the entire test in 2 hours and i think i did pretty okay. my estimated score was from 227-280 (i think, i forgot already!) but i'm kinda nervous about my TWE. I know i will pass my toefl and be able to submit it to any credentialing offices that i want but i'm still having doubts with my TWE. Thirty minutes is not enough to finish a well-written essay. they should have reduce the number of minutes for the listening, structure, and reading sections of the test and just add more time for the essay.
i really thought that it's going to be difficult but it's like taking a powerprep practice! but one thing i didn't like about the test was tha quality of sound during the listening test. i don't know if it's because of a lousy recording or because the wires of headphone in the center are busted. But it was really distracting me especially when the sound would just move to just another ear and you could not hear anything from the other ear. I think i should have done better in the listening part if only they would fix that issue. i was not able to tell the moderators about it but i just wanna share this to you in case it's your time to take the test. Just learn how to concentrate more and not get distracted with technical issues like that.
generally, it was okay. the testing center was really conducive for taking tests. even if you are with the other test-takers in just one room, you can hardly hear or even feel them. it's like you're taking the test alone.
well, my next problem is TSE. hehehehe. so good luck to those who will be taking the TOEFL test and don't be bothered so much about it. it's not as hard as you think believe me! you can survive by just practicing with the powerprep! no need to buy any other materials for the test!
hi everyone. I've just subscribed to this forum cause I do really think it'll help me score higher than I would without your help. Test magic homepage is really nice. I figure out some important things here.
As it is expected, for a toefl test taker (I'll do the test on may 6th, ITP Toefl), I'm really nervous...
Hi ynatots I've just read your thoughts about the Toefl exam, but I disagree with you when you say that powerprep is just enough for a Toefl test taker.
According to Erin, the powerprep is old, and the toefl exams "are getting harder and harder". Of course it always depends on the person who is taking the test, but in the overall I think Erin is correct when he states that.
Talking about the sound quality of the listening part, I'm really concerned about that. Actually, I think even powerprep could have a better sound quality. What do you guys can tell me about it?
To finish my post (my first one hehe), I would like to salute Ynatots for such a good score (I have to a score above the 550 mark - I'll take the PBT as its a ITP test), and all Test Magic Team for all the free content I have found, especially Erin Billy explained structure questions.
God bless us.
definitely the listening part in powerprep is much better than the one in the actual test. but i don't know if it varies with different testing centers. if the same thing happens to you, just tell the test administrators immediately because it might affect your score.Talking about the sound quality of the listening part, I'm really concerned about that.

about the powerprep being a good source of practice, well, i guess you're right in saying that for some people it is enough and for some other people, it is otherwise. but i just told you guys about this because i don't want you to worry too much. but it doesn't hurt to be on your toes and prepare for the test.
again good luck to all of you who are still taking the toefl. and thanks to everyone for their congratulations note!
