TOEFL Reading

The TOEFL iBT® Reading section is designed to assess how well you can read and understand the kind of materials used in an academic environment. It includes 3 or 4 reading passages, each approximately 700 words long, with 10 questions per passage. You have 54 to 72 minutes to answer all the questions in the section.

Reading passages are excerpts from university-level textbooks that would be used in introductions to a discipline or topic. The passages cover a variety of different subjects. Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with the topic of a passage. All the information you need to answer the questions will be included in the passage. There is a glossary feature available to define words not commonly used, if you need it.

Reading Section
Overview
Firstly, you should know how to understand what the questions are asking, use the directions in the questions and the structures of the passages to quickly find the information that answers the questions without reading too much, and how to eliminate wrong choices using the rules the test is based on. This is a proven method that is fast and accurate.
According to the official instructions, you must read and understand the content and vocabulary of a passage in a limited amount of time while answering the questions regarding the passage. However, if you ignore those directions and instead become familiar with the common structures of passages that will help you to find the information needed quickly and learn which answer types are wrong according to the rules of the test, you will be able to answer questions quickly and accurately.
The first thing you must understand about testing on the TOEFL iBT Reading Section is that the passages are filled with extra information that you will not be tested on, as well as information and answer choices designed to mislead you. The good news is that the passages are also designed to present the “key” information in a specific way that, once you know how to identify it, will help you to find the clues easily in the passages that determine what makes an answer right.
In order to determine what information you need to read, you must understand certain sentence structures and the rules the test is based on. To achieve a high score on the TOEFL iBT, get to know these three basic sentence structures and understand how to identify the main idea of each.
This passage breaks the passage structures down to their simplest forms so that you can understand them more easily. It also gives introduction on how to identify the question types as well as having instruction in how to eliminate the wrong choices based on specific rules so you do not fall for the traps set by ETS. It focuses on teaching you how to simplify and understand what questions are asking, quickly finding the specific information in the passage that answers the questions, and eliminating the wrong choices so that you can read less and answer questions quickly and accurately.
Reading ONLY the information you need to answer the question and eliminating choices that can’t possibly be correct helps reduce confusion and shorten answering time resulting in answering more questions accurately!
