Answer: (In A Best-Case Scenario) At LEAST Three Months!!!
(Read-On To Find Out Why)
In a previous post, I explained “The Most Important Thing To Know About The TOEFL iBT Exam”. In that post, I stated that the MOST important thing to know is The Format.
That is absolutely true. Then, the NEXT-most important thing is to know “How To Answer Every Question & Fulfill Every Task On The Exam”. (which you will learn in either of The Full Courses in The TOEFL Excellence Training System.)
However — many people who need to take the exam start making plans about WHEN they will take it even BEFORE they start preparing for it! And they often choose a date and register for the exam with almost no time to properly prepare.
The number one reason that this is a mistake is because many of these individuals assume that The TOEFL Exam is yet another proficiency exam — similar to all the others that they have already taken in the past.
Most English proficiency exams — such as the FCE & CAE — test for the skills that a person ALREADY possesses. Though The TOEFL iBT Exam does take this into account — this is not actually the main focus of The Exam.
The main focus of The TOEFL Exam is to test whether or not you will be able to function in a English-Speaking University setting, by showing that you is able to effectively…
1) Learn New Material In English
2) Answer Questions About That Material
3) Express Your Thoughts And Opinions About Certain Topics In The Spoken & Written Forms
If you are intending on taking the TOEFL iBT Exam, you need to — First: Get Acquainted With The Contents Of The Exam — And, Second: Learn How To Answer & Fulfill All Of The Questions & Tasks On The Exam. But all of this is going to take time.
You NEED To Have Enough Time To FULLY Prepare For The Exam BEFORE Registering For The Exam!!!
After you have Properly Prepared For The Exam — you should also do a review of your course before your actual exam day… (something which you can do with ALL TOEFL Excellence Courses, because there is NO TIME LIMIT with any of the courses!!! ) 😎 “You’re Welcome”
Most people who are taking The TOEFL Exam have some deadline for when their exam results need to be submitted to a University — and so they have an “end-date”. So perhaps they do not have enough time. For those people I have also created a “Last Minute TOEFL Preparation Course”.
But for those of you who have much more time — there is NO reason to delay your preparation. As stated above — there is no time-limit with any of The TOEFL Excellence Courses (unlike almost every other TOEFL course available ). So…
By doing this — you will be able to prepare for the exam in a relaxed way. You will also have plenty of time to ask me any questions that you may have as you are preparing for the exam. And finally — you will have time to do a final review before your exam date.
The last thing that you need to remember is to keep a close eye on the schedule of Testing Dates & Locations for wherever you will be taking the exam. This is because, in many locations, the testing dates can sometimes be completely booked-out, up to three months in advance!
Keep track of availability in your area!!! I update the information on availabile test dates on a regular basis, and the dates are usually posted for about three months ahead of time. But things change week-by-week. Dates can fill up quickly, (some places faster than others).
So The Moral Of This Story Is…
Good Luck! And Have An Excellent Day!
