Tip #1: Manage your time
When you are doing practice tests, you should always be aware of the time
. Never allow yourself an open ended study session. You will have to learn to work efficiently within the timeframe of the actual exam.
On test day, you should be especially careful in the Reading section. You will have 75 minutes to complete Parts V, VI and VII. Many students spend too long on section V or VI because they find these the most difficult. Don’t spend more than 30 minutes on the first two parts. Part VII will take you at least 40 minutes, and it is worth a lot of points, especially if you find it an easier section.
Tip #2: Listen quickly
When you are studying for the TOEIC test, do not practice by rewinding the tape
. On the day of your test you won’t have any control over the speed of the listening section. You will not even have time to think
for very long between questions.
If you do not know the answer, take your best guess. Don’t look back at questions when you are waiting for another question to start or you can lose track of what you need to focus on for the next question.
Tip #3: Practice reading aloud
Reading out loud will help your listening and reading comprehension skills. In order to understand English more quickly, it is important that you understand the rhythm of the language. Read from textbooks, flyers, newspapers, and even children’s novels. You can also tape yourself and listen to how you sound.
