toefl ibt reading

Post Thu Feb 24, 2011 5:48 pm
Hi, I have just went through ETS 2006 edition CD Reading section trial 1, my accuracy for all three passages was 85.7% (I put no special effort, just read once and answered all questions) - how effectively this could be translated to Ibt score? Should I expect above or below 26 points in Ibt?

hey i got hold of kaplan ibt disk and longman ibt stuff - plan to increase accuracy in reading up to 100%

Hmm... I think there's a scale score converter at the end of the book, although I can't remember exactly... I think you get 1 point for each question you answer correctly and 2 points for the last, more complex question, and they should add up to 30?

@NR, be careful, even i was good at reading in gmat as wel as toefl pracatice, but on the real exam i got 100 mins of reading on an old CRT monitor,
i really got pissed and even took a break to visit the washroom at about the 80th minute.

I have 27-28 in all other sections but 23 on reading, TOEFL reading aint difficult but it can be irritating. especially if u get the extra reading section.
