The Best TOEFL Books of 2022 | TOEFL Book Reviews
When you’re shopping for TOEFL books, it can be hard to know which are high-quality and which you should walk away (if not run away) from! That’s why I’ve put together this list of TOEFL book reviews: the best TOEFL books of 2022 . Here, you’ll see exactly why some books stand out from the crowd—and learn what to avoid when searching for good TOEFL prep for Reading , Listening , Speaking , and Writing .
- The Official Guide to the TOEFL Test, 6th Edition
- Official TOEFL iBT Tests, Volume 2, Third Edition
- Official TOEFL iBT Tests, Volume 1, 4th Edition
- Best Unofficial TOEFL Prep Books
- Magoosh TOEFL Books
Official TOEFL Books from ETS
ETS itself makes three official TOEFL prep books that I highly recommend. These official practice materials will always be the ones most accurate to the real exam. If possible, you’ll want to get the most recent editions of each book, the ones released in 2020; these are the only editions thus far that are consistent with the 2019 updates to the test format. The practice tests in these books do have many of the same questions as the practice tests in earlier editions, but the questions and sections have now been reformatted in important ways. So, let’s take a closer look at each book.
1. The Official Guide to the TOEFL Test, 6th Edition
There are three good things about the TOEFL Official Guide :
- It has the most accurate description of what you see on the TOEFL iBT
- The practice sets at the ends of the chapters
- The four practice tests, which come with downloadable software and audio files (these can be taken in-book or through the software)
- Sample Speaking and Writing responses, with scorer commentary.
But none of it is perfect, oddly. For more details of the pros and cons of this book, read my full review of the Official Guide to the TOEFL iBT Test .
2. Official TOEFL iBT Tests, Volume 2, Third Edition
The three official TOEFL books are all very close to each other in ranking, but the best of the three for cheap, authentic practice tests is this book . And this book really does focus just on practice tests. There are no extra practice questions, and no supplemental chapters that give extra information about the tests. To learn more about why the official practice tests here are even better than the official prep in the other two ETS TOEFL books, check out my full review of Official TOEFL iBT Tests, Volume 2, Third Edition .
3. Official TOEFL iBT Tests, Volume 1, 4th Edition
Before there was a Volume 2 of these tests, there obviously had to be Official TOEFL iBT Tests, Vol. 1, 4th Edition . The book still has the same practice tests as before, but the tests have been shortened and reformatted to match the updated TOEFL that was rolled out in 2019. While this book is very similar in quality to the second volume, there are a few important differences that are worth considering. Learn more by reading my full review of this first volume of Official TOEFL iBT Practice tests .
Best Unofficial TOEFL Prep Books of 2022
Yes, official TOEFL prep materials are a must-have for any serious student. But there’s a lot of really helpful prep to be found beyond ETS, and even beyond Magoosh. Here are three TOEFL books from other publishers that just might be a good addition to your test prep bookshelf.
4. Barron’s TOEFL iBT, With 8 Online Practice Tests
The ugly truth is that really good unofficial TOEFL prep materials are hard to find. But Barron’s does a really great job as an unofficial resource. This Barron’s book is by far their most comprehensive. In the full review of Barron’s TOEFL iBT , David gives a detailed description of Barron’s offerings, and some pros and cons to help you decide if the book is right for you. The pros and cons are also summarized below.
Barron’s TOEFL iBT Pros and Cons
5. Barron’s Essential Words for the TOEFL
Barron’s does it again! To see if this recommended vocabulary resource is truly right for you, check the table below.
Barron’s Essential Words Pros and Cons (summary)
6. 400 Must-Have Words for the TOEFL Test
This book is from McGraw Hill. As a publishing company, McGraw Hill puts out the official TOEFL books; as an educational company, they also make and publish unofficial TOEFL resources of their own. How good is this unofficial resource from the publisher of the official books? Read a quick summary of the review in the table below:
400 Must-Have Words: Pros and Cons
7. Kaplan TOEFL iBT Prep Plus
This book from Kaplan is not quite as good as the other resources above, but still has many strong points. Becuase of this, I’m not giving it a full, separate review, but I will describe it in a little more detail here.
The advice in the book is, for the most part, excellent! Great tips and tricks on study habits, language learning, and test strategy. The practice material itself is flawed but helpful. Kaplan’s Reading and Listening practice questions are close enough to the real thing that you’ll get good practice. The Speaking and Writing practice are a little further off from the real thing, but can still help you build test skills and English skills.
One thing to be wary of: the Kaplan does get certain key aspects of the TOEFL’s structure wrong. To name a few inaccuracies, their Reading questions don’t follow the order of ideas in the passage, Kaplan’s Integrated Speaking and Writing tasks are much more complicated than they should be, and the Listening sections feature class discussions, but not monologues.
Pros and Cons of Kaplan TOEFL
8. The ELT Grammar Book (Non-TOEFL Prep Book)
While the ELT Grammar book is billed as a teacher’s resource, TOEFL teachers and students alike may find it useful. To read more about this book and see if it can help you in your TOEFL prep and English studies, see David’s full review of the book .
ELT Grammar Book Pros and Cons In a Nutshell
Magoosh TOEFL Books and Prep
Though Magoosh has not published a hard-copy TOEFL book (which helps keep our TOEFL prep accessible and low-cost) we go one better by offering tons of free eBook PDFs that you can take on the go. Here are just a few—you can browse the rest in our full list of TOEFL eBooks and PDFs !
- Guide to the TOEFL iBT
- TOEFL Vocabulary Comics
- English Idioms for the TOEFL
And if you are an interactive learner (I think most people are), then I’d recommend trying our self-paced, online course with a Magoosh TOEFL free trial .
Lucas is the teacher behind Magoosh TOEFL. He’s been teaching TOEFL preparation and more general English since 2009, and the SAT since 2008. Between his time at Bard College and teaching abroad, he has studied Japanese, Czech, and Korean. None of them come in handy, nowadays.

I am looking for material to teach the toefl primary and junior testl
Glad you asked, Frangk. 🙂 Here on the blog, we actually have a guide to finding TOEFL Junior prep (and teaching) material . Unfortunately, there is very little prep material available for TOEFL Primary… for now. It’s a new test, and more prep material will probably be created as time goes by.
At the moment, however, the only TOEFL Primary teaching materials that I know of come from ETS. There is the official page for sample TOEFL Primary questions from the ETS website . Ont he TOEFL Primary website, ETS also offers level descriptors for TOEFL Primary Reading and Listening for both Step 1 and Step 2 . ETS also has similar online level descriptions for TOEFL Primary Speaking .
Beyond that, it appears that a German website, “ Language & Testing Service GmbH ,” has purchased the rights to a few ETS full-length TOEFL Primary practice tests, as well as the teacher’s guides and parent/student guides for the TOEFL Primary. The site’s a bit hard to navigate if you can’t read German, but here are some direct links to the ETS TOEFL Primary content that’s been reposted on LTS GmbH:
Full TOEFL Primary Reading and Listening Practice Test, Step 1
Full TOEFL Primary Reading and Listening Practice Test, Step 2
The TOEFL Primary Teacher’s Handbook
The TOEFL Primary Parent and Student Handbook
if you can you can send me some questions so please i only have 6 months.
You should try out some of the resources my colleague David Recine suggested above! Good luck 🙂
Hi Im looking for materials to teach toefl at university students during their bachelor degree…. I mean along three academic years. Thank you Maria
As Lucas mentioned, the best TOEFL book for teachers are Oxford Preparation for the TOEFL iBT Exam and NorthStar Building Skills for the TOEFL iBT. (I’ve personally used both of these books with undergrad university students, and found them to be quite classroom friendly.)
I also strongly recommend including the TOEFL Official Guide and other official TOEFL books and materials from ETS, including the free-of-charge, web-hosted, and very student-friendly TOEFL Quick Prep . Hope this helps!
can you help me to solve it please, akif .
Hi, Is the ets TOEFL ibt mock tests scored on writing and speaking?
The practice tests from ETS do not score your personal writing and speaking submissions, but they provide sample responses and guidelines to help you score your own answers.
Hey ma’am can u tell me one thing that how to start the preparation of TOEFL for getting the selection in the best universities
I am not sure if that’s the write place to write my comment. But since your website comes second to ETS regarding TOEFL preparation material, I strongly recommend that you also include the “bad” material as a warning.
I recently bought the “Speaking Series” of ETS. It includes only speaking questions with a software to give you an estimate score. Unfortunately, I found that ALL its questions are copied from the (now outdated) Official Guide and the Free Sampler. Maybe it’s the same with their “Writing” and “Listening” series but I can’t confirm as I haven’t bought them. My advice to test takers who already bought the book is not to buy any additional the separate sections. They are just the same content so they’re loosing their money.
I’m not very sure about your policy on including links to other pages, but just in case, here is what I am talking about: http://toeflpractice.ets.org/cart.aspx?program=TFP
Hi Locus 🙂 Thank you so much for your useful videos. I got 28 on the Reading section by the help of you and my overall score is 101. Thank you so much again and wish you all the best moving forward. By the way, you are really smart :))
So glad we could help, Marie. 🙂
Thanks, for your wonderful article! I will attend in TOFEL exam next year. I need some self-studying textbooks and workbooks for grammar and vocabulary. What would you think of these books: The ELT grammar book, OXFORD English grammar course? Could you please help me to choose some good books for vocabulary? Unfortunately, I couldn’t find “vocabulary and grammar for TOFEL test”.
I don’t have personal experience with these books, and we don’t have any official recommendations about them, so I’m not sure how helpful my response will be for you! It seems like the ELT book is more geared towards teachers, so you may want to consider if that is the best option. Books from Oxford University Press are generally very good, but you may want to do some research and find some reviews before choosing which one to purchase.
We have some free resources here on our website that might help you out! Our free Magoosh English Grammar lessons will discuss all of the most important elements of English grammar and usage. We recommend it for students from all backgrounds! We also have free Vocabulary flashcards that will help you learn words that are commonly found on the TOEFL. Our blog also has a lot of great information, including many posts on grammar and vocabulary that will be useful as you prepare for the TOEFL. I hope these suggestions help!
Thank you so much for your help!
You’re welcome 🙂
Hello dear! 28th June, 2018
I am Kenji Asahina from Japan. I would like to you cooperation, please. And then I want find out the textbooks of toefl as below. If it exist the five woefl textbook as below. Could you tell me these price, postal fee and your details. These textbook hardly have been obtained to the world of u.s domestic bookstore and back number since last 15,16 years ago. I must need these five textbooks that your coordination ask to about thing, please. Please, I am waiting to your response to your answer by e-mail. I will think the payments of postal money order with these textbooks at my send the textbooks fee from Japan.
——- five woefl textbook——— ・BARRON’S How to prepare for the TOEFL with CD-ROM:Test of English As a Foreign Language 10th edition [Paperback] STUDENTS #1 CHOICE ・ARCO TOEFL Grammar Workbook: Everything You Need to Score High(3rd ed) ・BARRON’S HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE TOEFL ESSAY 2ND EDITION[Paperback] ・Grammar Workbook for the TOEFL Exam 4TH EDITION : Intensive, targeted practice you need to raise your scores ・BARRON’S The Leader in Test Preparation Practice Exercises for the TOEFL WITH AUDIO CD’S 6TH EDITION
We do not sell these books or send them to students! This blog post is just meant to help students decide which books to buy in order to prepare for the TOEFL test. You will see links to many of these books on Amazon.com, and you can buy many books there. I recommend that you search for a seller in your area 🙂 Good luck!
I’ve been living in the US for the past 10 years and I decided to go back to school and get a B.S. I need to pass the TOEFL as a pre req for university admissions in the next month or so.
I was wondering what would be your recommendations?
In your case, I would definitely recommend the official ETS TOEFL books above all others. These books are not necessarily the best when it comes to English learning strategies or boosting overall English proficiency. What they are focused on is how to fully master and understand the test and its format. And you really could do well focusing primarily on test skills and not English skills. After 10 years in America, you no doubt have a very strong foundation of English ability. The ETS books will help you channel your existing English skills in test-specific ways. 🙂
I recommend that you try to find a language partner. There exists many places, where you can introduce yourself and needs. I needed help to prepare for my exam in German. I found a language partner from Germany. He was a few years younger than me, but it was no problem. He taught me German in a few weeks. You can try to do the same thing. Otherwise, the books above will definitely help you. Reading books is a great exercise or watching English movies without subtitles.
Can you recommend a TOELF preparation book for the revised PBT version of it? Now, I know it’s quite a new version, and google was not helpful about it. Does it even exist yet?
TOEFL PBT books of any sort– good or bad– are pretty rare. But then, I’m sure you’ve already figured that out. The good news is that there is one TOEFL PBT prep book I can definitely recommend: The Complete Guide to the TOEFL Test (PBT Edition) . This is not actually an official guide, but it’s still very good. The book is written by Bruce Rogers, the same author who wrote The Complete Guide to the TOEFL Tests (iBT edition). His iBT is loved by many teachers and students, and it got a favorable book review from Lucas , Magoosh’s lead TOEFL expert.
These “Complete Guide” books aren’t perfect though. So I also recommend carefully reading Lucas’s review so that you know what to expect– good and bad– if you buy the PBT complete guide.
Above all, it’s important to look at official questions for the exam, ones made by ETS. So if you haven’t done so already, go through the small sampling of revised TOEFL PBT questions on the official TOEFL website. It’s a shame ETS doesn’t offer more, but that small collection is still worth reviewing.
i love this book may i have one
Which book were you talking about, Waziem? 🙂
Thank you very much. Your website truly was helpful into clear understanding of TOEFL. I want my daughter to appear for this exam as I want her to do her Masters in English Literature outside India. She finishes her Bachelors in English in April 2019. Will there be any changes in the study material by then? When should she start studying to appear for exam to go for Masters course in September 2019? Thanks again and God bless you and your team.
Thanks for reaching out to Magoosh! It’s a longer process, and it’s good that you and your daughter are already thinking about this! Keep in mind that if your daughter applies for school in 2019, she will start school in 2020. The applications for 2019 admissions are due in Dec 2018-Jan 2019, so she probably does not have time to take all of the exams and apply for admissions for Sep 2019. I would recommend that your daughter start researching to see which schools she wants to apply to. Then, she can start studying at the beginning of 2019 in order to take the TOEFL by May or June. That will give her plenty of time to study for the GRE and apply for schools in 2019 for a September 2020 start date 🙂
Hi I wanted to ask i want to prepare for toefl exams how many books do i need to prepare for the exams n which one is the best for someone who’s mother tongue is not english but i know how to read speak n write english not 100% correct but to aa average level
Hi Muhadisa! You can see in our study plans (for example, the one-month plan: https://magoosh.com/toefl/2017/one-month-toefl-study-schedule/ ) that we recommend the Official Guide 4th edition and the Magoosh course. That should be enough for your prep. The other books that we list in our book reviews guide are great if you need additional material 🙂
Terrific and helpful reviews, thanks! You don’t mention this text: Delta’s Key to the TOEFL iBT®: Complete Skill Practice. Is that because it’s designed for classroom use, or is there another reason? Thanks!
We actually do have a review of Delta’s Key to the IBT ! It didn’t make it into our list of top resources, but you an read the full review above 🙂
Hi, i did reading practice test on Barrons TOEFL IBT , but it came to me so hard , is Barrons exam format ( i mean difficulty level ) or hard?
You can see our full review of Barron’s books here: https://magoosh.com/toefl/2014/barrons-toefl-ibt-book-review/
Barron’s is generally a good source for practice materials, but there are some parts of it, particularly in the listening section, that aren’t quite what you will see on test day. The listening section in particular will include recordings that are more complicated than what you will find on the TOEFL. If you read through that review, you’ll get a better sense of the pros and cons of Barrons!
I’d be interested in your opinion of the Longman book. I’ve heard good things but never used it:
Longman Preparation Course for the TOEFL iBT Test with Answer Key, by Deborah Phillips 3rd Edition, Pearson, 2015
Although we don’t include it in our main review post here, Mark, we do have a full book review of the Longman TOEFL Prep Course , Mark! And we’ve given it a mostly good review, with some criticisms, as you’ll see when you click the link. Since Lucas has a lot of good things to say about this book, I’ll talk to our blog editor about adding in Longman Prep to this main post. 🙂
hi, there is a problem with the listening section of the TOEFL test and the with the tests given in the DVD which comes along with the official material. In the TOEFL test, only 10 minutes is allotted for answering the questions of each set of 3 listening sets whereas the test in the DVD gives the entire 60 minutes for the whole listening section at the very beginning.
That is a good point. The TOEFL OG’s software doesn’t quite match up to the real exam. It’s still a rough approximation of the time limits you’ll deal with, but it is a strange and frustrating inconsistency, to be sure!
I would like to get a book for training TOEFL test
Hi Ramswell! The ETS Official Guide 4th Edition is probably the best bet 🙂
Is there any new guide book of toefl ibt
What do you mean by ‘new guide book’? Many of these books have new editions released every year, but generally the information in the books is very similar from year to year.
Hello Dear All I have 12 months to get my TOEFL 100+ score, But as brief I have no skill ( Reading, Speaking, Listening, Writing) NO SKILL AT ALL.
How Can I get my desire score? What materials? What you tube channel? ? ? ? Do you recommend to read and follow? Thank you all.
i need to the some of useful Toefl sourses, please Email me.
Hi Mohammad, I’m afraid I don’t understand what you are looking for. If you’re looking for more information about our Magoosh TOEFL program, send us an email at [email protected] and we’d be happy to provide you with more information 🙂

TOEFL Preparation Guide With Tips & Resources
What You Need to Know About the TOEFL Exam
For language learners willing to prove English proficiency while planning to study or work in an English-speaking country, taking the TOEFL exam is a necessary step. But before you dive into exam preparation, here's what you need to know about how to pass TOEFL.
First, the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) measures your ability to use and understand English in an academic setting. The exam consists of four sections: Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing, and it takes about four hours to complete.
For the TOEFL preparation online, it's critical to practice your English in each area and become comfortable with the exam's framework. Additionally, knowing some TOEFL tips and tricks can help you score better on test day.
When it comes to the Reading section, read the passage thoroughly and pay attention to details, such as the main idea and supporting evidence. For the Listening section, take notes while you listen and use them to answer the questions. In the Speaking section, practice speaking English aloud and expressing your ideas clearly and coherently. Lastly, practice writing essays with clear thesis statements and supporting evidence for the Writing section.
To further improve your English proficiency, consider taking an English course, practicing with English-speaking friends in their native language, or reading English texts regularly.
Now that you know the what is TOEFL, it's time to get started on your exam preparation techniques. Check out these TOEFL tips and tricks from our custom essay writers to help you succeed on test day.
Exam Preparation Techniques: TOEFL Tips and Tricks
Preparing for the TOEFL exam can be challenging, but with the right techniques, you can boost your confidence and improve your chances of success. One helpful tip is to practice time management, as the exam is timed and requires you to move quickly through each section. Another key strategy when wondering how to prepare TOEFL vocabulary is to improve your terminology by having a strong command of English words and phrases. Additionally, practicing with past TOEFL exams can help you pinpoint any areas that require improvement.
Meanwhile, don't forget that you can always ask us and free up your precious time for taking practice tests!
Let's now explore how you can make the most of your TOEFL preparation.
Understand the TOEFL Exam Pattern
First, understanding the TOEFL exam pattern is essential for anyone preparing for this test. The TOEFL exam comprises the following parts: Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing.
The TOEFL test is taken on a computer, and each section has a time limit. The Reading section lasts for 60-80 minutes, the Listening section for 60-90 minutes, the Speaking section for 20 minutes, and the Writing section for 50 minutes.
These are the initial steps when you're confused, asking - 'how to pass TOEFL?'. Knowing these will help you to practice each section more effectively and become familiar with the timing and format of the exam.

Look no further! Our academic writing services are here to help you ace your exam.
Devise a Study Plan for TOEFL
Making progress toward your objective of receiving a good TOEFL score is much easier when you have a study strategy in place. Here are some tips for devising a study plan for TOEFL:
- Determine your time before the exam and set a realistic goal for the amount of study time you can commit to each day or week.
- Identify your strengths and weaknesses in each section and prioritize the sections you need to improve.
- Schedule regular practice sessions for each section and stick to the schedule.
- Use study materials and practice exams to guide your preparation and identify areas that require more attention.
- Track your progress and adjust your study plan as needed.
TOEFL Speaking Tips
The Speaking section of the TOEFL exam requires you to speak fluently and coherently on various academic topics. Here are some TOEFL speaking tips to help you succeed on this challenging section of the test:
- Improve your pronunciation and intonation by listening to and imitating native speakers. You can also use online resources such as Forvo or the Pronunciation App to practice.
- Provide specific examples and details to support your arguments. For instance, if you are asked to talk about a memorable event, you might describe a trip you took and explain why it was significant.
- Use idioms and expressions appropriately to convey your meaning more effectively. For example, you might say 'it's a piece of cake' to describe an easy task or 'a needle in a haystack' to describe a difficult search.
- Speak clearly and at a moderate pace, and avoid rushing or speaking too slowly. Ensure you enunciate your words clearly so the examiner can understand you.
- Finally, be confident and relaxed. Take deep breaths and remember that the examiner is not there to judge you but to evaluate your English skills.
By following these suggestions and practicing consistently, you may enhance your speaking abilities and perform well on the TOEFL exam. Remember to focus on expressing your ideas clearly and effectively and using the best techniques for you.
TOEFL Writing Tips
The Writing section of the TOEFL exam requires you to compose two essays: an integrated essay and an independent essay. To aid you in conquering this demanding part of the exam, below are some valuable TOEFL writing tips.
- Familiarize yourself with the essay prompts and the expectations for each essay type. The integrated essay requires you to read a passage and listen to a lecture, while the independent essay allows you to express your opinion on a topic.
- Use specific examples and details to support your arguments. For example, if you are asked to describe your favorite hobby, you might provide specific details about why you enjoy it and how it has impacted your life.
- Before you begin to write, arrange your thoughts and ideas. Make a rough outline for your essay that contains your thesis statement and the key themes you wish to cover.
- Use transitional phrases to connect your ideas and create a cohesive essay. Examples of these phrases include 'furthermore,' 'in addition,' and 'on the other hand.'
- Plan how much time you will spend on each essay, and leave time to review your work before time runs out.
Consistent, practice timed writing and adherence to these tips can enhance your writing abilities and help you achieve excellence on the TOEFL exam. It's crucial to emphasize clear and effective communication of your ideas while using the most suitable techniques.
TOEFL Tips for Reading
The Reading section of the TOEFL exam requires you to read passages and answer questions based on the content. Here are some TOEFL tips for reading to help you excel on the test:
- Skim the passage first to get an overall idea of the topic and main ideas before reading it in detail. This can help you save time and focus on the relevant information.
- Look for signal words and phrases that indicate the author's main point and the relationships between ideas. Examples of these words include 'however,' 'therefore,' and 'in contrast.'
- Use context clues to determine the meanings of unfamiliar words. Look for clues, such as synonyms or antonyms, and try to infer the meaning from the context.
- Take notes while you read to help you remember important details and organize your thoughts. You can use shorthand, abbreviations, or diagrams to summarize the information.
- Make sure to read the questions carefully and refer back to the passage to find the answers. Pay attention to keywords and phrases in the questions to help locate relevant information.
Follow these tips and remember to focus on understanding the main ideas and the relationships between ideas. You might also consider taking a TOEFL preparation course to further enhance your reading comprehension skills. Just make sure to use the techniques that work best for you!
TOEFL Tips for Listening Skills
The Listening section of the TOEFL exam requires you to listen to lectures, conversations, and discussions and answer questions based on what you hear. Here are some tips to help you improve your listening skills and achieve success on the TOEFL exam.
- Listen for the main ideas and details. Focus on the key points that the speaker is making and take note of any important details that support those points.
- Pay attention to the speaker's tone and attitude. This can provide clues about the speaker's opinion, the purpose of the conversation, or the relationship between the speakers.
- Take notes while you listen to help you remember important details and organize your thoughts.
- Watch out for terms and phrases that serve as cues about how the discussion or presentation will be structured. Examples of these words include 'first,' 'second,' 'in addition,' and 'in conclusion.'
- Be aware of distractions and avoid letting them affect your concentration. Eliminate all distractions and keep your attention on the speaker.
- Lastly, pace yourself and avoid focusing too much time on any one question to successfully manage your time. Avoid challenging questions and, if you have time, return to them later.

How Long Does It Take to Prepare for TOEFL?
Many students wonder how long does it take to prepare for TOEFL; the answer is not straightforward. The amount of time needed to prepare for the exam varies depending on various factors, including your current English speaking skills, the score you wish to achieve, and your study habits.
On average, it takes around 3 to 6 months of consistent and dedicated study to prepare for the TOEFL exam. You can improve your English language skills, learn test-taking strategies, and practice with sample questions and full-length tests during this time. However, some students may need less or more time depending on their proficiency level and study habits.
The test takers with limited time might ask, 'how to prepare for TOEFL in 2 days?'. We answer that preparing for the TOEFL exam in such a short period is possible. However, this requires a focused and intense study approach. To prepare for the TOEFL exam in two days, you should prioritize studying the most critical sections of the exam and review test-taking strategies. Focus on practicing with sample questions and taking full-length practice tests to improve your speed and accuracy. Getting enough rest, eating well, and staying hydrated are also essential to perform at your best before the test date.
Use Our Advanced Academic Assistance
In conclusion, preparing for the TOEFL exam requires time, effort, and dedication. Understanding the exam format and creating a study plan tailored to your needs and learning style is crucial.

TOEFL Prep Online Guides and Tips
2 perfect-scoring toefl writing samples, analyzed.
The Writing section can be the most daunting section of the TOEFL. You’ll have 50 minutes to write two complete essays that must meet multiple requirements and show a strong grasp of English. Knowing what graders are looking for and reviewing TOEFL Writing samples can go a long way towards helping you get a high score on this section.
This guide will go over both of the TOEFL Writing tasks, explain how they’re graded, go over a high-scoring TOEFL Writing sample for each essay type, and end with TOEFL Writing examples for you to analyze.
The TOEFL Writing Section
The TOEFL Writing section is 50 minutes long (broken into two parts) and contains two tasks: Integrated Writing and Independent Writing. It’s the fourth and final section of the exam. You’ll type both essays on the computer. The next two sections will explain the format and requirements of each of the writing tasks as well as how they will be scored.
TOEFL Integrated Writing Task
The Integrated Writing task requires you to use listening, reading, and writing skills. For this task, you’ll have three minutes to read a short passage, then you’ll listen to a short (approximately two-minute long) audio clip of a speaker discussing the same topic the written passage covers.
You’ll have 20 minutes to plan and write a response that references both of these sources in order to answer the question . You won’t discuss your own opinion. During the writing time, you’ll be able to look at the written passage again, but you won’t be able to re-hear the audio clip. You’ll be able to take notes while you listen to it though. The suggested response length for this task is 150-225 words.
By the way: we have built the world's best online TOEFL course . Get online practice (TPO-sytle!) and individual grading and feedback on Speaking and Writing.
Learn how you can improve your TOEFL score by 15 points today .
For this essay, you’ll be graded on the quality of your writing as well as how well your response represents the main points of the audio clip and written passage and how they relate to each other. Each essay receives a score from 0-5. For both essay types, you can check out the complete rubric used for official grading. Below are key points from the Integrated Writing rubric. ( You can view complete rubric for both essays here .)
TOEFL Independent Writing Task
For the Independent Writing task, you’ll have receive a question on a particular topic or issue. You’ll have 30 minutes to plan and write a response to that topic that explains your opinion on it. You’ll need to give reasons that support your decision. It’s recommended that your response to this task be at least 300 words.
You’ll be graded on how well you develop your ideas, how well your essay is organized, and how accurately you use English to express your ideas.
Top-Scoring TOEFL Integrated Writing Sample
Below is an official TOEFL Integrated Writing sample question and as well as an essay response that received a score of 5. It includes a written passage, the transcript of a conversation (which would be an audio recording on the actual TOEFL, and the essay prompt. After the prompt is an example of a top-scoring essay. You can read the essay in full, then read our comments on what exactly about this essay gives it a top score.
Integrated Writing Example Prompt
You have three minutes to read the following passage and take notes. In many organizations, perhaps the best way to approach certain new projects is to assemble a group of people into a team. Having a team of people attack a project offers several advantages. First of all, a group of people has a wider range of knowledge, expertise, and skills than any single individual is likely to possess. Also, because of the numbers of people involved and the greater resources they possess, a group can work more quickly in response to the task assigned to it and can come up with highly creative solutions to problems and issues. Sometimes these creative solutions come about because a group is more likely to make risky decisions that an individual might not undertake. This is because the group spreads responsibility for a decision to all the members and thus no single individual can be held accountable if the decision turns out to be wrong.
Taking part in a group process can be very rewarding for members of the team. Team members who have a voice in making a decision will no doubt feel better about carrying out the work that is entailed by that decision than they might doing work that is imposed on them by others. Also, the individual team member has a much better chance to “shine,” to get his or her contributions and ideas not only recognized but recognized as highly significant, because a team’s overall results can be more far-reaching and have greater impact than what might have otherwise been possible for the person to accomplish or contribute working alone.
Now listen to part of a lecture on the topic you just read about.
(Professor) Now I want to tell you about what one company found when it decided that it would turn over some of its new projects to teams of people, and make the team responsible for planning the projects and getting the work done. After about six months, the company took a look at how well the teams performed. On virtually every team, some members got almost a “free ride” … they didn’t contribute much at all, but if their team did a good job, they nevertheless benefited from the recognition the team got. And what about group members who worked especially well and who provided a lot of insight on problems and issues? Well…the recognition for a job well done went to the group as a whole, no names were named. So it won’t surprise you to learn that when the real contributors were asked how they felt about the group process, their attitude was just the opposite of what the reading predicts. Another finding was that some projects just didn’t move very quickly. Why? Because it took so long to reach consensus…it took many, many meetings to build the agreement among group members about how they would move the project along. On the other hand, there were other instances where one or two people managed to become very influential over what their group did. Sometimes when those influencers said “That will never work” about an idea the group was developing, the idea was quickly dropped instead of being further discussed. And then there was another occasion when a couple influencers convinced the group that a plan of theirs was “highly creative.” And even though some members tried to warn the rest of the group that the project was moving in directions that might not work, they were basically ignored by other group members. Can you guess the ending to *this* story? When the project failed, the blame was placed on all the members of the group.
You have 20 minutes to plan and write your response. Your response will be judged on the basis of the quality of your writing and on how well your response presents the points in the lecture and their relationship to the reading passage. Typically, an effective response will be 150 to 225 words.
Summarize the points made in the lecture you just heard, explaining how they cast doubt on points made in the reading.
TOEFL Integrated Writing Sample Essay
The lecturer talks about research conducted by a firm that used the group system to handle their work. He says that the theory stated in the passage was very different and somewhat inaccurate when compared to what happened for real.
First, some members got free rides. That is, some didn’t work hard but gotrecognition for the success nontheless. This also indicates that people who worked hard was not given recognition they should have got. In other words, they weren’t given the oppotunity to “shine”. This derectly contradicts what the passage indicates.
Second, groups were slow in progress. The passage says that groups are nore responsive than individuals because of the number of people involved and their aggregated resources. However, the speaker talks about how the firm found out that groups were slower than individuals in dicision making. Groups needed more time for meetings, which are neccesary procceedures in decision making. This was another part where experience contradicted theory.
Third, influetial people might emerge, and lead the group towards glory or failure. If the influent people are going in the right direction there would be no problem. But in cases where they go in the wrong direction, there is nobody that has enough influence to counter the decision made. In other words, the group might turn into a dictatorship, with the influential party as the leader, and might be less flexible in thinking. They might become one-sided, and thus fail to succeed.
TOEFL Writing Sample Analysis
There are three key things this TOEFL example essay does that results in its high score:
- Clearly presents main points
- Contrasts lecture and reading points
- Few grammatical/spelling errors
This essay clearly organizes the three main points made in the lecture, which is what the first part of the prompt asked for. (“Summarize the points made in the lecture you just heard.”) There is one paragraph for each point, and the point is clearly stated within the first sentence of the paragraph followed by specific details from the lecture. This organization makes it easy to follow the writer’s thinking and see that they understood the lecture.
Additionally, the essay clearly contrasts points made in the lecture with points made in the reading. Each main paragraph includes an example of how the two are different, and the writer makes these differences clear by using words and phrases such as “however” and “this directly contradicts.” Stating these differences answers the second part of the prompt (“explain how they cast doubt on points made in the reading”) and shows that the writer understood both the lecture and reading well enough to differentiate between the two.
Finally, there are only a few minor spelling and grammar error s, the most noticeable of which is the incorrect use of the word “influent” in the final paragraph (it should be “influential”), and they do not detract from the meaning of the essay. This writer shows a strong grasp of the English language, a key TOEFL skill.
This essay shows that the writer understood the main points of both the lecture and the reading well enough to both describe them and contrast them. That, along with the relatively few mechanical errors, gives the essay a top score.
Top-Scoring Independent TOEFL Writing Sample
Below is an official Independent Writing prompt and top-scoring sample essay. Beneath the essay we analyze what about the essay resulted in it receiving a top score.
Independent Writing Example Prompt
Directions Read the question below. You have 30 minutes to plan, write, and revise your essay. Typically, an effective essay will contain a minimum of 300 words.
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Always telling the truth is the most important consideration in any relationship. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Independent TOEFL Writing Sample Essay
the traditional virtue of telling the truth in all situations is increasingly doubted by many in today’s world. many believe that telling the truth is not always the best policy when dealing with people. moreover, the line of a “truth” is becoming more and more vague. this essay will explore the importance of telling the truth in relationships between people.
we all understand that often the truth is offending and may not be a very nice thing to both hear or say. lies or white lies often have their advantages. the manipulation of white lies is the most obvious the business world. how many times have we heard that some product is “the finest” or “the cheapest”? how many times have we heard that products have such and such “magical functions”? advertising is about persuasion, and many would agree that if a company is to tell the absolute truth about it’s products, no one would be interested in even having a look at the products.
the same logic applies to human relationships. if your friend had worn a newly purchased dress on her birthday and energetically asked you if it was a worthy buy, would you freely express your opinion that you had never seen a dress as the one she’s currently wearing? and spoil her birthday? unarguably, hiding(entirely or particially) the truth in some situations can be quite handy indeed. confrontations and disputes can seemingly be avoided.
however, there is always the risk factor of the truth emerging sooner or later when telling an untruth. the basic trust in any relationships(businessman/customer, friends, parents/children) will be blotched, and would have an impact on the future relationship between both parties. the story of the “the boy who cried wolf” fully illustrates the consequenes of telling untruths. no one will believe you when you’re telling the truth. your word will have no weighting.
in addition, another “bad factor” of telling untruths is that you have absolutely no control over when the truth(of previous untruths) will emerge. untruths breed pain in both parties: tears when the truth is uncovered after a period of time; fear and the burden of sharing a “secret”. in the long run, it seems that hiding the truth is not beneficial to either party. everyone hates betrayal. even if it is the trend to occasionally hide the truth in relationships, it is strongly recommended that not to follow that trend as the risk and the consequences of the truth unfolded overwhelms the minimal advantages one can derive from not telling the truth. afterall, it is understood that relationships are founded on “trust” which goes hand in hand with “truth”. indeed telling the truth is the most important consideration in any relationship between people. always.
There are three key things this essay does that results in its high score, and each is explained in more detail below.
- Is well organized
- Uses specific examples
The essay, like the first one, is well organized. The writer’s position is clear within the first few sentences, and the rest of the essay elaborates on that position. Each paragraph begins with a new major point that is then explained. This logical flow of ideas is easy for readers to follow and shows that the writer knows how to set up a clear argument.
Another reason the essay received a top score is because the writer used specific examples to make her point. By using specific examples, such as a friend buying a new outfit and asking your opinion and phrases businesses use to sell products, the writer makes her argument stronger and more concrete.
Finally, despite the lack of capitalization throughout the essay, there are few spelling and grammatical errors, and the ones that do exist don’t detract from the meaning of the essay or make it confusing to understand. This shows a strong command of English and the ability to write in-depth essays that are clear and get their point across.

Review: Analyzing TOEFL Writing Examples
Writing can be a particularly tricky TOEFL section, and seeing TOEFL Writing samples can go a long way to helping you feel more confident. For TOEFL Writing, you’ll need to write two essays, the Integrated Writing Task and the Independent Writing Task. Looking over the rubrics for both these essays and understanding what graders will be looking for can help you understand what to include in your own essays.
Both essays are scored on a scale of 0-5. Top-scoring essays generally need to have good organization, specific examples, answer the prompt completely, and minor spelling and grammar errors. It can also be useful to review other TOEFL writing samples to get a better idea of what a great TOEFL essay looks like.
