    Hi pals,

    I passed through my TOEFL exam few days ago. My score is:

    L 27
    SW 12-29
    R 29
    227-283

    Well, results could have been better, I will wait for the essay score. I had time to check only part of it.

    Unfortunately, I got quite a noisy place near the exit door and had some troubles in the beggining of the B listening section when people began to go in and out. I think I missed some points at that time because I became anxious. So one should try to be PATIENT during the exam even if something disturbs him. That's the key to the listening.

    I was not sure about two questions in the structure section, and I had a bad feeling, because I didn't see "difficult" ellipsis questions.

    What about reading, I think I failed on the inference question. I had one in which I couldn't find the right answer. In fact, there were no direct reference in the text, and facts given could be interpreted in different ways[}](or at least it seemed like that ). Synonym questions were quite easy. I didn't know the answer for 2 of them. But I examined carefully the text. In one case the word was used in another context and I figured out its meaning. The second one was used with the adjective which helped to get rid of the meanless variant(I was hesitating between two of them).

    If you have questions I will be glad to answer all of them.

    I wish you the very best scores,
    Hippo.

    Hi Hippo

    Congratulation on your result

    Compare the score of your REAL test to score you ussually get in practice, are they different a lot. Which section(s) seem to be much more difficult than that in practice test.

    Thank you very much and best regards

    Hi Vpos406,

    Thank you.

    As you could read here on forum the best preparation software is PowerPrep. I got 203- and 207- when I first took it. So my real score lower boundary is about 20 points higher. I think it is due to the real test concentration. I had bad environment conditions when I was taking preparation tests - there was much noise and talks around me. In fact, I think that PowerPrep tests estimate test taker's score quite accurate.

    All sections were similar to those in PowerPrep. The suprise for me was only the listening section, because it consisted of 49, instead of 30 in PowerPrep, questions.

    Best regards, Hippo
