    There are a number of methods and strategies, it is too long to go over here though. What prep book(s) do you have?

    In order to grasp the main idea of a lecture you need to understand four main things:
    1- The gist
    2- The details
    3- The function
    4- The speaker's stance

    If you go through any TOEFL self-study book that you have you will find good skill explanations for each of these. If you don't have any book available you can read a brief explanation of each skills through the following link:
