Approach the test with a plan
At first, you should define where your strengths and weaknesses lie. It will help you to plan where to focus your energies. Firstly, work on questions you are good at and make sure to answer them correctly. Then move on to questions that are more difficult for you to answer.
Practice makes permanence! Train yourself to concentrate on a task for several hours (as TOEFL takes several hours). Find time to sit aside in a quiet place to take some practice exams.
Be ready for test conditions
You do not know what temperature will be in the testing room, so dress in layers and bring a sweater. It may warmer or colder than you anticipated.
Firstly, skim the passage to catch the main idea. You can always go back and specify what you have not understood. Questions that ask about vocabulary words and details are considered to be easier to answer. So, make them firstly, and only then work on main idea questions or questions that require you to make inferences.
Structure and Grammar
Try to express your ideas in the simplest and clearest way. If an answer choice sounds awkward or overly complicated, chances are good that it's wrong.
Speaking and Listening
Become as familiar with the English language as you can, including learning vocabulary words and idioms. Practice working with the language in everyday life; this will help you become more comfortable with it and understand it better.
Planning for a few minutes before writing will help you to write a more focused and organized essay. It is also important to develop your ideas and express them clearly, using examples to back them up. Although the essay doesn't need to be grammatically perfect, try to make as few errors as possible. Always save a few minutes at the end to proofread.
