Tip #1. Practice in speaking in English all the time.

3. Practice on how to summarize, taking notes, paraphrasing and synthesizing on the practice exercises in Barron's I think that helps me to pass this test.
4. Record yourself so you would know your phase and have it scored by you and at the same time a friend or a coach to know your errors and to evaluate the score that you need to get.
5. Lastly, pray for miracles to happend.

here's my preparation speaking part:
I used Barron's toefl ibt the latest ed (12th). I began with the practice exercises on how to summarize, paraphrase, taking down notes and synthesize. I followed all the tips on the practice exercises. Then I move on to practicing the 6 questions of speaking part I think it has 6 or 7 practice questions. I recorded my voice so me and my friend can evaluate or grade it on how they answer it in the book and the way ets score the 6 responses.
I also used the websites that were given this forum for additional resources and of the tips and techniques provided by the members.
I applied all the things that I've learned.
What I did differently in this test compared to the past is that I paraphrase right away as I'm taking down notes. I outline the important points of the reading passage so it would help me to summarize and organize my thoughts in giving a smooth responses and transitions. This is very important to question 3 & 4. I also paid attention to the key or main idea of the questions so you can get to the right response. For question 1 & 2 it is important to relate it to your own life so you can answer it freely give examples so you can explain it better. For 3 & 4 always relate or integrate the reading passage to the talk. For 5 & 6 listen closely to the talk organize your notes into main idea and supporting details are examples given for #6 questions to come up with a good response.
Test takers if you still have questions don't hesitate to ask me...
Knok here it is...
