TOEFL Preparation Time
The TOEFL iBT is not a test that you can prepare for in a week or the night before. Having a good level of English can certainly help, but it is not enough. The TOEFL requires you to put into practice certain academic and professional skills, such as managing your time, presenting ideas clearly, synthesizing, or understanding texts. All of these skills improve with lots of practice.
The best way to prepare for the TOEFL is to take courses taught by specialized companies that help you learn the necessary strategies for this exam, and that know how to make a work plan so that you can apply your time in the most efficient way possible. A good preparation, depending on the level of the candidate, the target score and the hours of weekly dedication, ranges from 4 to 12 weeks.

TOEFL iBT Home Edition: Anytime From Home
One of the most current versions of the TOEFL is the ibt Home Edition. This test can be taken at any time from home. In addition to this advantage, this TOEFL version is offered 24 hours a day, 4 days a week. All you need is a computer, microphone, camera, and a secure Internet connection. Check your connection and make sure the speed is adequate, otherwise you will not be allowed to take the TOEFL iBT Home Edition.
To take the TOEFL iBT Home Edition you must register on the official ETS website. Once you have created your account, you will have access to view available appointments for the following days or weeks. Due to the high availability of this version of TOEFL, you can even get appointments for the day after you register. Just select the date that works best for you, meet the equipment and privacy requirements, and show up for your appointment on test day.
