I took the TOEFL test more than 2 years ago and I am pretty sure that there's no significant difference between the quality of PP and the actual test, the speakers were even coughing while talking.
This is a funny thing happened to me. However, it has made me very very upset.
See the fun,
I took powerprep test 1 exacyly 25 days ago, i got following score
Now after almost a month's hardwork (I literally have burnt midnight oil)
here is what I got,
So, does it mean my whole preparation was wasted? Please help me get out of this depression. Any advice on how to score well in listening? I know this is a silly question.
But I want to ask, is sound quality at actual test good ( As compared to PowerPrep)? Because in powerprep, it is bad according to me (as compared to cambridge, longman). isn't it? or is it same?
I am waiting for detailed answers to my questions. Please guide me.

Looking at thy scores, it is very clear that u've not improved in the structure/grammar section. Your RC and Listening scores are good( but again thy RC score has dropped). Hence continue to prepare with more concentration on grammar.
I found Barron's and Delta Key useful.Do take up ALL the tests in TM also.
Analyze thy mistakes and work accordingly. It would not be a wise practice to just rush through the practice tests inorder to feel complete. Understand thy mistakes and never repeat 'em again,especially in grammar where there are a lot of rules to be followed.
When thy done with grammar go back and practice the other sections too.As Erin has mentioned , it would be a good idea to take as many PP tests as possible.
I don't belive this.That's why you fail!!!
Thanks for your support. I can see may listening score has improved but it was nullified by my RC scores. In fact, I have done much more to improve my RC than I have done for listening. But as I thought over it and asked my professor, I got following conclusions.
1) When a person reaches a definite level, then it is more difficult to go further. Example, if one gets 90% in 10th standard, then it is thrice as difficult to raise 1% after 90% as compared to increasing from lesser percentage
2) I think 270 is not less score (Though I am trying for more) Hence it's now more difficult for me to raise marks above it. (Maybe this this is my saturation level)
What do you think of this? I think as awhig said, it's a bit of luck too. Let's se.
Your one month preparation did get wasted because you contributed here... And we love you for that And we are grateful and thankful and... good luck! because standarts test does not measure your true skills and capabilities.
Will you explain the actual meaning of your post Renata? I could not get it. How did my prep get wasted because I contributed here?
I dunno, but I think I have really studied hard. Maybe I think it will be useful somewhere else Lets see what happens in actual examination.
