Like every other qualifying exam, mock tests play a crucial role in helping students prepare for the TOEFL. For some students speaking comes naturally, many students list public speaking as one of their biggest fears. Others have excellent writing skills but speed becomes an issue for them and they are not able to complete the test on time and end up disappointed. What mock tests do is to build and boost the students’ confidence. A number of websites are available which offer a variety of free and paid mock-tests that help students tackle the TOEFL with ease. Students are advised to exercise their discretion and opt for a website or service provider, which offers personalised test feedback. The feedback helps students in identifying their strengths and weaknesses and allows them to plan and study better.
