TOEFL READING – 5 Hacks That Boost Your Score:
Question types that appear in this ETS practice test
1) NOT/EXCEPT Questions
NOT/EXCEPT questions asks you to find the answer that is not mentioned in the TOEFL Reading passage. You must read such questions carefully. Sometimes the answers contain words that are mentioned in the passage – this may be a trap! ETS wants to confuse you and check whether you understand the meaning of the answer. Therefore, make sure that you check each answer carefully and that you understand the meaning. This will increase your TOEFL Reading score considerably.
2) Vocabulary Questions
Vocabulary questions can be easy or difficult. This depends on whether you know the word or not. If you know the word, you do not need to go back to the TOEFL Reading passage. If you are unsure what the word means, go back to the passage and make a second check. Usually, you should be able to figure out the answer when you see the word in context. If you do not know the word you must read the sentence that contains the word. Sometimes you also need to read one or two sentences before and after that sentence. Try to figure out what the word could mean from the context. Even if you are in doubt, choose an answer. You do not get penalty points in TOEFL Reading.
3) Inference questions
Inference questions ask you to infer meaning from the text. This means that the passage suggests something that is not stated literally and you must infer that. Inference questions can be hard. I recommend reading the TOEFL Reading passage carefully so that you do not miss anything. To answer inference questions in TOEFL Reading correctly, you need practice. Take the ETS TOEFL Reading practice tests so that you become familiar with inference questions.
4) Detail questions
In TOEFL Reading detail questions ask you to understand specific aspects mentioned in the passage. Be careful! Sometimes the answers contain the same words given in the text to mislead you. Make sure that you understand the meaning of the answers. Use the ETS practice tests to practice these questions for TOEFL Reading.
5) Function questions
In TOEFL Reading function questions ask you what the function of something is that the writer uses in the text. For instance, the writer may give an example of something and you are asked to figure out whether he does that to describe something or to highlight something.
6) Summary questions
Summary questions ask you to summarize the most important ideas given in the passage. In TOEFL Reading ETS uses these questions to check whether you understand what the passage is about in general. Usually, there are answers that do not appear in the text or that change the meaning of something given in the passage to confuse you.
7) Organization questions
In TOEFL Reading organization questions ask you to insert a sentence where it best fits in the passage. You must understand the context of the passage. If you do that, it will be easy for you to figure out the correct answer.
