Therefore it is important to be prepared for this test and furthermore to have many kind of knowledge and computer skills. The topics in the test are variety and go since philosophy passing through mathematics, literature, psychology and even geology.
The test is divided in four parts: Reading, Speaking, Listening and Writing. The Reading and Listening sections are very similar like in the earlier test before the internet age but speaking and writing bring many changes with them. For instance in the speaking section one must speak about a familiar topic or a specific topic and this speech will be record and then examined for the specialists. The same with the writing section but in this case one have to write about some topic indicated for the test and then it will be review for the evaluators.
Nevertheless there are previous things to do before. It’s important to know that the Toefl IBT is very expensive. When I called ICPNA asking for information about the Toefl they told me that they were administrator of the test only and they couldn’t give any information about. It was depressive for me so I went to the Toefl web site (www.toefl.com) and after so much investigation I discovered how I could registered me. Well, after registering my profile information, I was elegantly invited to pay $170 (!). I was stunning but luckily I could pay with my VISA credit card (without Verified By Visa required).
