What is TOEFL?
TOEFL stands for Test of English as a Foreign Language - in other words it is English Language Proficiency test that all US Business Schools require International applicants to take. The new Internet Based Test or TOEFL iBT is scored from 0 to 120 but schools do not look at it from a scoring standpoint but rather Pass/Fail. Many schools will set a certain minimum that an applicants must get. If you are a native speaker or have been educated at a Western College that used English as the main language of instruction, there is a good chance that TOEFL requirement will be waived. US Residents and graduates of US colleges do not need to take TOEFL.


Some useful links:

- Online practice. Similar to GMATprep but pretty expensive - tests are $44.95 each :shock: Sometimes I'm glad ETS is not provider of GMAT anymore:

This book is a "must have" for TOEFL Preparation, no doubt about it. All four sections of the test are covered in detail with very thoroughly explained basic type of questions. This product is all you need to master the TOEFL. Unlike OG for GMAT, Official Guide for TOEFL is enough, you don't need any additional material. While additional scripts and books can help, they are not necessary to get the high score.

Pros:
Well written, excellent selection of example essays and readings. Simply, applicant will be very well prepared for the test with this book and wouldn't find any subsequent unpleasant surprises in the test itself.

Cons:
Nothing specific for this book. What used to drive me crazy during TOEFL preparation was lack of any kind of resource for practice of Speaking section.
