CHAPTER 2: UNDERSTANDING THE TOEFL

CHAPTER 3: IMPROVING YOUR TOEFL VOCABULARY
One of the best ways to build your vocabulary is to read authentic English language material.
You should read material that a college student would read. Examples of such material are
newspapers, college textbooks, encyclopedia articles, magazines, and academic books. Any
material that-has an academic theme will help you get used to the kinds of words and the style of
writing you will find on the TOEFL.
CHAPTER 4: BUILDING YOUR VOCABULARY
When readers find an unfamiliar word in a sentence, they are some-times able to determine its
meaning by reading the other words in the sentence. The other words give the context that allows
readers to make an educated guess about the meaning of an unfamiliar word. However, we already
know that on TOEFL vocabulary questions all of the possible answers fit into the context of the
sentence. Therefore, the success you will have on this part of the TOEFL, depend upon whether you
can determine word meanings by examining the word being tested, not by studying the context. In
this chapter, you will learn how to determine the meaning of a word by studying its parts.
Many English words consist of more than one part. Let’s examine three important parts you should
know in order to improve your vocabulary.
