Help # 3

If you cannot study the above lists, you should develop your own list. Whenever you read formal English, such as a passage from a textbook or a magazine, copy sentences that have unfamiliar words in them and study the definitions of the new words.

Because vocabulary on the TOEFL is vocabulary in the context of a sentence, it is important to study the sentences in which the words appear and concentrate on them.

Below you will find a list of 15 articles which we highly recommend you read before taking the TOEFL Test Evaluation # 3 (You can also print them out to read while you commute to work).
