Susanne in The Netherlands I am just finishing my graduate studies and am looking to do a PhD abroad. Since I have to commute a lot now the iPod will be great for entertaining me along the way. Practicing the TOEFL makes me less nervous about the real thing and seeing the test questions gave me a bit of a head start. Thanks so much.

Mizuki in Japan I am still a student. I will listen to my favorite music on the train to university. I recently took the TOEFL iBT test and scored 113. I was very pleased to score more than I got in the previous test which I took one and a half years ago. I think this improvement is due to my experience having spent one year in a university in Italy where I had to speak in English everyday. I am now back in Japan. Thank-you.

Midori in Japan I'm a university student. My hobby is listening to music, so I would like to listen to my favorite songs.

Sebastian in the Netherlands I'm a software engineer and am in an international team of developers. Though there are no native English speakers here, we do have to use English all the time since it's the only language we have in common. I will be using the iPod Shuffle while traveling/working/volunteering abroad. I'm happy about the score of the TOEFL test, I am planning to work or volunteer abroad as an English teacher but as a non-native speaker myself I was not entirely confident my skill in English was high enough to be teaching.

Marija in Croatia I'm currently a high school student. I'm attending science school. Thank you so much for this Ipod, I'm going to listen to it while exercising and during my study breaks!

It helped me a lot in my goal to study and work abroad!

Maxime in France I am a credit analyst. I will use my iPod while on the train, while I'm working out and in the car. Music is an important of my daily life.

I have been practicing but they still throw me off.

Ivan in Colombia I'm an artist, I make sculptures an illustrations for a living. I'll listen a lot of music an podcasts, in my gym and in the bus while going to my studio.

Gabriel in Brazil I study Economics for a living, and now I took TOEFL to get the certification for my exchange program. I will listen to my new iPod Shuffle while jogging and in my way to university. I have already taken my TOEFL test, and the two areas that I had practice with TESTDEN, listening and reading, I got respectively scores of 30 and 28 out of 30. TestDen helped me so much! Thank you for everything!

Mihaly in Hungary I'm a Master's student and I study International Relations in English and French. I plan to listen to music on the iPod Shuffle on my way to school and back home. As regards the TOEFL test, I have a very positive experience with it. I think that the practice tests offered by your website helped me improve a lot. Thank you.

Nicolas in Argentina I work as a lawyer for the local council of my city and I think I'll use the iPod to go training (I'm an amateur gymnast). I liked very much taking your test, it seemed very realistic and I was surprised I got such a high mark.

Vinicius in Brazil I just started as a engineering professor in a local university. However, I still need my Doctorate, and it would be awesome to get it abroad. If I'm really going to study abroad, I need to keep on practicing and I think the iPod shuffle will be great to listen to sample lectures and records in English, while I do other stuff. I'm currently applying for a university in Manchester and one of the requirements is the TOEFL test. The TOEFL test was at the level I was expecting. The resources I found online, specially TestDEN, helped me a lot in this sense: since there were no surprises on the test day I got a bit more relaxed. I recently got my TOEFL ITP score, 113! I'm really happy and I think testden played a very important role in my studies, so thank you.

Lihini in Sri Lanka I'm still a student who is looking forward to get enrolled in a university either abroad or in my home country to pursue an undergraduate major in Bio Medical Science. I have a dream to enter a university in US and follow my studies. My ambition is to become a Clinical doctor. I'm so glad that I have been fortunate enough to win the iPod Shuffle which I will use to listen to music because I'm a person who has a great passion for music. I am preparing for TOEFL these days to prove my English language competency at the entrance to a university. I believe TOEFL is a very good platform to sharpen our language skills as the preparations to TOEFL especially the practice tests that I have been following in TestDEN have already resulted in a noticeable growth in my English Language skills. I'm very glad that I have got this chance by using TestDEN to prepare for my TOEFL exam.

Ryo in Japan I am a university student. With the iPod, I'll listen to youth music while doing my research, and podcast while going to school. TOEFL is a booster for every single English learner. Testden offered me an important opportunity to briefly follow up the progress of my TOEFL preparation. No other test can perfectly achieve this purpose. I like the listening part most: testden's listening test was very real compared with other studying materials both in terms of layout and quality. I got 105 in the real test! I think you can infer strong correlation between testden results and real result.

Lauge in Denmark I am studying a master in political science at the University of Copenhagen while working as a assistant researcher at the Center for Youth Studies. I will listen to music and podcast back and forth from school in Copenhagen. I was positively surprised that the TOEFL test did not only test grammar, vocabulary and other "hard" linguistic competencies. Also it tested my ability to read a social situation in or outside class through realistic dialogues. This is probably the closest one can get to testing one's real English competencies without having a one-to-one real life examination and conversation.

Kuhelika in United Arab Emirates I am a high school student, currently in 12th grade. I have been longing for an iPod since a long time, and i will probably download my favourite songs on it and listen to them while I'm on the school bus. I think the TOEFL is an excellent way to measure English skills in reading, listening, speaking and writing. It is challenging but not overtly so. According to me, it is the best exam for testing how well a person has grasped the English Language and is able to proficiently use it in his daily life.

Elisabet in Brazil I'm currently studying Achitecture and urbanism at the University of So Paulo. I will use my iPod to listen to music while I'm working at university or just walking anywhere. I decided to make the Toefl exam due to my intention of trying an university exchange programme. Toefl was recquired for most universities and as I have always loved English I had no trouble deciding to make it. I'm waiting impatiently to get my results! Thank you.

Bruna in Brazil I am a graduate, looking for a job on Industrial Design. I will use my iPod Shuffle to listen to music and podcasts during my commutes and in the gym. I believe the TOEFL is a very well balanced test to mesure real knowledge of the English language. The questions are well distributed between the four different skills they test.

Tapajit in India I am currently working full time as a Research Engineer in IBM Semiconductor Research and Development Center, However I have plans of pursuing a PhD in the near future and that is why I took the TOEFL Test. An iPod Shuffle would just be perfect for me given the work pressure is raising to an all time high at present and I need to rejuvenate myself very frequently. I plan to take it to my office with me and use it when I take small time-outs from work. I took my TOEFL test on 28th December, 2013 and I got the results a while back. I got a score of 30/30 in Reading section, 29/30 in Listening section, 22/30 in Speaking section (which I believe is not too bad given I suffer from a degree of stammering problem) and 26/30 in Writing section. That made a total score of 107. If I have anyone to thank for my score, it definitely is the mock test designed by TestDEN team. I took no other kind of preparation. It is an extremely well designed test and an exact simulation of the real one. It made my time during the test so much easier for I knew exactly what to expect. I once again express my boundless thanks to the TestDEN team.

Markus in Finland Currently, I am a student of international politics working part-time as a sales person. I am glad to hear about winning an iPod Shuffle as I can use it while doing sports and at work before opening the store I work for. I think the TOEFL test is a necessary and great way to measure prospective students' English skills as people come from very different language backgrounds. Thank you!

Raghava in India I am currently studying in class 12 in New Delhi, and aspire to study engineering abroad next year. I'm a great fan of music, and will use my iPod to listen to my favourite classics. TOEFL was definitely an important exam for me, and I relied solely on TestDEN to prepare for it. I'm happy to say that this turned out very well, and practice tests on testden.com really paid off. Thank you!

Jenny in Israel I would use the iPod during my long travels to work and back. I'm an electro-optics engineer in a small company in Israel. I also volunteer as a math and English tutor in a community center for underprivileged teenagers. I was very nervous about the TOEFL exam that I'm taking for an MBA application until I encountered TestDEN. The website taught me the exam structure and timing, gave me an opportunity to practice speaking and writing under real time conditions and I can surely say better prepared me for the TOEFL. I'd like to thank you, TestDEN, for both this opportunity to hone my English skills and perfect them for the TOEFL and for the iPod!

Felipe in Brazil I am a military from the brazilian air force and I will use the iPod to listen to music while I run. I liked very much to be part of this contest and I think that the TestDEN TOEFL test is a good way to verify what you will find in a future real TOEFL test.

Seidi in Finland Currently, I am an Abitur studying for my Matriculation examination. After graduating I'm planning to study Lutheran theology in university. I'm going to love the iPod Shuffle! I would mainly use it in my freetime and when I travel by bus or train. I still feel pretty nervous about the TEOFL test even though the tests from TestDEN.com helped me to get prepared for it and feel more comfortable about it. Thank you so much.

Gunveer in India I graduated as an engineer in July 2012. Since then, I have been working as an applications engineer with Oracle in India. As my university uses English as the official teaching language, preparing for TOEFL wasn't very tough for me. Although, laying hands on the right material is of utmost importance as only that would give you a proper understanding of the test. I was able to score a 114/120 on the TOEFL and would recommend that test takers should take as many practice tests as possible. Testden.com provides a very accurate simulation of the TOEFL test.

Maria in Poland Dear Testden! I wanted to thank you so much for your help! Your tests were very helpful, I got 110 on my exam all thanks to your practice tests!! They are the best way to prepare for your TOEFL exam, it's the only place online where you can get this kind of opportunity. Thank you again so much, I got this high score only thanks to your tests.

Kasumi in Japan I am very surprised and excited to hear that I was chosen to be a iPod winner! I am a university student. I want to use the iPod to listen to the podcast or when I'm on the bus. Few days ago, I took TOEFL for the first time. There, I was able to relax and perform well thanks to TestDen's Practice test. TestDen became a big help to me. Thank you TestDen!

Magali in USA I am currently doing an internship in Structured Finance in the US while studying for a Master degree in Management. I will use my iPod Shuffle to listen to music in the subway and when I go to the gym. I was pretty confident about the TOEFL test before taking it because I had numerous mock tests, so I guess I was kind of prepared. I had the official test last week and I have to admit that with some more pressure and several people in the same place, it was different. I haven't got the results yet but I hope they will be good enough for me.

Silvia from Germany I was very happy to learn that I have won something! I am a part-time English teacher. I have taken your test because I am now offering a TOEFL preperation course at the adult education centre in my town and I wanted to practise myself before getting started. I think the TOEFL is a very good test. TOEFL teaches structure and organisation for essays and prepares you very well for effective studying.

Adekunle from Nigeria I want to thank TestDEN for its free practice tests. I took several TOEFL practice tests on your website before i took my real TOEFL test. I just saw my result, I scored 101/120. Thank you TestDen for the help.

Mateusz from Poland I teach French. I like listening to audio books, so I would probably continue to develop my interest in literature thanks to this ipod. As far as the Toefl test is concerned, I must admit it is a very convenient exam, you can sign up one week before, it is fast and the results are published two weeks afterwards. I am very satisfied with my Toefl results because I got 110 points. I should add that I found TestDen really helpful at the last stage of my preparation.

Olya from Ukraine I work as a marketing trainee at Johnson&Johnson Ukraine. Though I'm a Bachelor of cultural studies, not marketing, I enjoy my job and especially, the team. It's a great experience, but I'd like to move forward and continue the studying in another country. I'm going to love the i-Pod Shuffle! I spend a lot of time while going somewhere in my city and it's so boring without a book or some music. For the TOEFL exam, I was nervous before the test and tried to concentrade, keep calm... I did it! My result is 110 of 120, and testden.com is one of the main resources for the preparation. Thank you once more!

Daniel from Brazil I'm currently studying civil engineering at the federal university, and I had taken the TOEFL test in order to study abroad for one year. The iPod Shuffle will be very usefull to me, as I love listening to music while jogging. The tests from TestDEN.com helped me to get prepared for the test and feel more comfortable about it, now I think I have the required knowledge to succeed at studying abroad, and I thank TestDEN for the help.

Natalia from Brazil I am a scriptwriter, currently applying for the Fulbright scholarship for a Master's degree in Screenwriting. Now that I'll have my own iPod, I'll be able to relax and just listen to some music while I write stories. Thank you so much for this gift and also for truly helping me during my preparation for the TOEFL test! I got a score of 106!

Julie from the Czech Republic I am currently preparing myself for studying at university. I am going to study dance therefore the iPod will be very useful. I will probably listen to the music to help me remember it for dancing. I also love English audio books. TOEFL is an interesting exam which is actually not only about English. It is really aimed on the abilities necessary to study at university. Your Free TOEFL Practice Test has helped me a lot because it gave me confidence. It was sort of first step to achieve a high score.

Radulescu from Romania I'm a student. This iPod Shuffle would be very useful to me besides listening to music, to listen to different recordings in English meant to improve my listening skills with the view to the TOEFL I am going to take soon. Considering the demo tests I've taken so far, I feel confident enough to take the TOEFL test soon. In my opinion, the test initself is relevant to the amount and level of knowledge expected by the universities that require it. Getting a good score takes a lot of work though, and a lot of commitment.

Plamena from Czech Republic At the moment I am a customer relations officer at Air France Customer Care department for the European market. Since I like travelling, I undertake journeys whenever I have the chance, so I will listen the iPod on my trips to make the soundtrack of my life and preserve the memories the songs will remind me of. I consider the TOEFL test an essential part of the application process for higher education. It is not only recognised by a variety of institutions, it is a test that gives you an impression of all the academic aspects. It also requires a broad general knowledge and examines the students on their quick reaction, flexibility and argumentation skills. You helped me so much to prepare for the real TOEFL test; the simulation was not only useful for preparing the candidate for the test format, it was valuable in the sense that it offered all four components of the test.

Jerome from Belgium I am looking for work in the humanitarian field or looking at opportunities to improve my academic qualifications. I travel a lot and really enjoy listening to music whenever I'm abroad. I'm also a mountaineer and climber and like to listen to music while on an expedition. Given the results obtained on Testden's practice tests, I suppose I should feel rather confident. I do believe that it's necessary to test people's abilities when it comes to studying in English. TOEFL tests are necessary and they are a good solution, yet some other things should be considered as well, such as a person's learning abilities or his or her abilities in his field.

Sebastian from Colombia I'm a student, and I'll be graduating in June 2012. I will store my favorite music in the ipod shuffle and listen to it when I'm home and during trips. Thanks to the practice I got at TestDEN.com, I was able to hone my english skills and understand what kind of questions are asked in the TOEFL. Thanks to this, I was a lot more relaxed during the actual test and got 114 out of 120!

Prashanth from India I am a Systems Engineer. I am a huge music lover and what better way to listen to some of my most favorite songs, than on an ipod. I got to know about your site through a friend of mine. He took the tests on your site before going on to take the actual TOEFL. He could easily clear the entry requirements for the universities that he was interested in. Since I was planning to take the TOEFL myself (part of the university application process), i looked up your site to start my preparations. Its been very good to prepare from there and has boosted my confidence before i go on to take the actual test. Thank you for all the help that is provided on your site.

Maira from Brazil I work as a Manager in Market Intelligence area, in a consumer goods company in Brazil. I will fill my iPod Shuffle with brazilian songs and I will listen to it in the United States, when I move there for the MBA program. I believe the TOEFL is a great test to measure the fluency level of foreign students. I prepared for the test with TESTDEN and it was an excellent choice. I took the TOEFL last week and got 110 (with 28 for reading and listening)!! And I am sure that I only got that result because of TestDEN!

Marcelo from Brazil I would like to thank the splendid TESTDEN course, without which I could not have achieved a total score of 92 on the TOEFL, and 27 in reading. I would recommend TESTDEN for anyone who needs to raise their English to a higher level. The TESTDEN course gave me the opportunity to become familiarized with TOEFL Ibt interface, times, and scores, which resulted in less pressure on the day I took the TOEFL test. And, as I was more relaxed my english have flowed naturally, which directly affected my result. Now, I am very confident that I will be accepted for my PhD at Canada.

Oleg from Ukraine I work as Sales and Marketing Director in the construction company GERC. Next year I plan to pursue full-time MBA studies in one of the top Canadian Business Schools. I will use my iPod Shuffle to listen to relaxation music and language learning materials during business trips. TestDen helped me to prepare well for my TOEFL exam. I took my official TOEFL ibt exam on the 13th November and scored 119.

Manuela from Colombia I am currently completing my studies on Product Design Engineering at EAFIT University. Since I don't have an mp3 player, I am sure I will enjoy listening to my favorite music on my new iPod everywhere, specially on my way home, on the bus, or during breaks at college.

Regarding the TOEFL test, I needed to take it because it was a requirement established by my college. Since I didn't really have a lot of time to prepare myself for it, I started searching online for help. I found TestDEN, and it became an excellent tool for my preparation, because it helped me understand the test's structure and type of questions. In fact, it was so helpful that I got an incredible score of 118 points! Thanks a lot, TestDEN!!

Noodang from Toronto I work at my husband's restaurant. Besides, I am a TOEFL student who planing to get test in June 2010. I am going to use it for not only studying but also leisure. I will download TOEFL listening practices and music to my iPod Shuffle, and listen to it while I am on my way to work and school.

TOEFL test is just a beginning of my goal. In fact, I have to pass it, for get in to college or university. Indeed, I wish to go to oversea institution. Previously, I have searched many websites that can help me to improve my TOEFL skill, and I finally found it!! From TestDEN, I have learned my strengths and weaknesses. Once again, "TestDEN" is the best site for studying TOEFL.

Andres from Colombia I am a student. I will enjoy my ipod shuffle as I need a music player. I would principally use it in my free times as when I go in the bus or on a trip where there's nothing anymore to do.

I think the TOEFL test is one of the most important tools for my future as it proves as an international student that I have has a very high profile in the english language and that I am able of studying in a university located in english speaking nations that may be an 80 percent of the actual countries because English is one of the most spoken languages in the world. That is why I take test den, for preparing for the real toefl test, where I should get in my first try a very high grade.

Alice from France I am a student at EDHEC Business School, but I am currently in my gap year. I am doing an internship in accounting in the hope of becoming a certified accountant. I will use my Ipod shuffle on my way to work, as I have to take the subway. I love listening to music.

I was really stressed out about the speaking part of the TOEFL because I have a very strong French accent. Using the testden allowed me to practice my enunciation. It worked, because I succeeded in having 110 at my TOEFL ibt. Thanks to the TOEFL, I may be able to go and study in Canada and I won an ipod!

Rama from India I am doing my final year in college. At present I do not have any music system in my college. So iPod Shuffle will be of great use to mine. Moreover I am very much fond for western music and I hope to use it effectively in my college.

To tell the truth, I was not so serious about TOEFL. Before one week of exam only I started my preparation and I started using your tests only. I just Google toefl practice tests and that is were I came to know your website. The best thing in your site was the steps and directions required for different sections. I got a clear cut picture after seeing it. Kindly continue your service and many students like me will get benefited. Again I thank you for this wonderful gift.

Rocio in Spain I'm a medical student. With the ipod I will listen to lots of music and take it around. I will also use it to study, listening to clasical music!

Lora in Croatia Recently I graduated with a master degree in Biotechnology. Currently I'm in a search for a job abroad that's why I need to sharpen my English skills. TOEFL test gave me an insight on where I stand with it and what do I need to improve. This iPod shuffle will be a great company when I'm jogging or doing house choirs! Thanks!

Sebastian in the Netherlands I'm a software engineer and am in an international team of developers. Though there are no native English speakers here, we do have to use English all the time since it's the only language we have in common. I will be using the iPod Shuffle while traveling/working/volunteering abroad. I'm happy about the score of the TOEFL test, I am planning to work or volunteer abroad as an English teacher but as a non-native speaker myself I was not entirely confident my skill in English was high enough to be teaching.

Marija in Croatia I'm currently a high school student. I'm attending science school. Thank you so much for this Ipod, I'm going to listen to it while exercising and during my study breaks! TestDEN gave me an excellent experience and proved to be a great preparation for TOEFL test. I saw the concept of the test and the things I should improve. It helped me a lot in my goal to study and work abroad!

Maxime in France I am a credit analyst. I will use my iPod while on the train, while I'm working out and in the car. Music is an important of my daily life. I think I speak English well enough to have a good score on the TOEFL. However, I need to be better at the TOEFL. The speaking and writing tests are very challenging though. I have been practicing but they still throw me off.

Ivan in Colombia I'm an artist, I make sculptures an illustrations for a living. I'll listen a lot of music an podcasts, in my gym and in the bus while going to my studio.

Sulagna in Germany I am doing my masters in Germany. I am an ardent music lover. I shall use the ipod for listening music while commuting for university everyday and in my free time. TOEFL is a well organised tell which test students for skills in English in all possible genres. I really like the Testden tests which gave me a real time TOEFL experience with standard of questions being really good. I am sure your sample tests are going to help me get a good score.

Gabriel in Brazil I study Economics for a living, and now I took TOEFL to get the certification for my exchange program. I will listen to my new iPod Shuffle while jogging and in my way to university. I have already taken my TOEFL test, and the two areas that I had practice with TESTDEN, listening and reading, I got respectively scores of 30 and 28 out of 30. TestDen helped me so much! Thank you for everything!

Mihaly in Hungary I'm a Master's student and I study International Relations in English and French. I plan to listen to music on the iPod Shuffle on my way to school and back home. As regards the TOEFL test, I have a very positive experience with it. I think that the practice tests offered by your website helped me improve a lot. Thank you.

Nicolas in Argentina I work as a lawyer for the local council of my city and I think I'll use the iPod to go training (I'm an amateur gymnast). I liked very much taking your test, it seemed very realistic and I was surprised I got such a high mark.

Vinicius in Brazil I just started as a engineering professor in a local university. However, I still need my Doctorate, and it would be awesome to get it abroad. If I'm really going to study abroad, I need to keep on practicing and I think the iPod shuffle will be great to listen to sample lectures and records in English, while I do other stuff. I'm currently applying for a university in Manchester and one of the requirements is the TOEFL test. The TOEFL test was at the level I was expecting. The resources I found online, specially TestDEN, helped me a lot in this sense: since there were no surprises on the test day I got a bit more relaxed. I recently got my TOEFL ITP score, 113! I'm really happy and I think testden played a very important role in my studies, so thank you.

Lihini in Sri Lanka I'm still a student who is looking forward to get enrolled in a university either abroad or in my home country to pursue an undergraduate major in Bio Medical Science. I have a dream to enter a university in US and follow my studies. My ambition is to become a Clinical doctor. I'm so glad that I have been fortunate enough to win the iPod Shuffle which I will use to listen to music because I'm a person who has a great passion for music. I am preparing for TOEFL these days to prove my English language competency at the entrance to a university. I believe TOEFL is a very good platform to sharpen our language skills as the preparations to TOEFL especially the practice tests that I have been following in TestDEN have already resulted in a noticeable growth in my English Language skills. I'm very glad that I have got this chance by using TestDEN to prepare for my TOEFL exam.

Ryo in Japan I am a university student. With the iPod, I'll listen to youth music while doing my research, and podcast while going to school. TOEFL is a booster for every single English learner. Testden offered me an important opportunity to briefly follow up the progress of my TOEFL preparation. No other test can perfectly achieve this purpose. I like the listening part most: testden's listening test was very real compared with other studying materials both in terms of layout and quality. I got 105 in the real test! I think you can infer strong correlation between testden results and real result.

Lauge in Denmark I am studying a master in political science at the University of Copenhagen while working as a assistant researcher at the Center for Youth Studies. I will listen to music and podcast back and forth from school in Copenhagen. I was positively surprised that the TOEFL test did not only test grammar, vocabulary and other "hard" linguistic competencies. Also it tested my ability to read a social situation in or outside class through realistic dialogues. This is probably the closest one can get to testing one's real English competencies without having a one-to-one real life examination and conversation.

Kuhelika in United Arab Emirates I am a high school student, currently in 12th grade. I have been longing for an iPod since a long time, and i will probably download my favourite songs on it and listen to them while I'm on the school bus. I think the TOEFL is an excellent way to measure English skills in reading, listening, speaking and writing. It is challenging but not overtly so. According to me, it is the best exam for testing how well a person has grasped the English Language and is able to proficiently use it in his daily life.

Elisabet in Brazil I'm currently studying Achitecture and urbanism at the University of So Paulo. I will use my iPod to listen to music while I'm working at university or just walking anywhere. I decided to make the Toefl exam due to my intention of trying an university exchange programme. Toefl was recquired for most universities and as I have always loved English I had no trouble deciding to make it. I'm waiting impatiently to get my results! Thank you.

Bruna in Brazil I am a graduate, looking for a job on Industrial Design. I will use my iPod Shuffle to listen to music and podcasts during my commutes and in the gym. I believe the TOEFL is a very well balanced test to mesure real knowledge of the English language. The questions are well distributed between the four different skills they test.

Tapajit in India I am currently working full time as a Research Engineer in IBM Semiconductor Research and Development Center, However I have plans of pursuing a PhD in the near future and that is why I took the TOEFL Test. An iPod Shuffle would just be perfect for me given the work pressure is raising to an all time high at present and I need to rejuvenate myself very frequently. I plan to take it to my office with me and use it when I take small time-outs from work. I took my TOEFL test on 28th December, 2013 and I got the results a while back. I got a score of 30/30 in Reading section, 29/30 in Listening section, 22/30 in Speaking section (which I believe is not too bad given I suffer from a degree of stammering problem) and 26/30 in Writing section. That made a total score of 107. If I have anyone to thank for my score, it definitely is the mock test designed by TestDEN team. I took no other kind of preparation. It is an extremely well designed test and an exact simulation of the real one. It made my time during the test so much easier for I knew exactly what to expect. I once again express my boundless thanks to the TestDEN team.

Markus in Finland Currently, I am a student of international politics working part-time as a sales person. I am glad to hear about winning an iPod Shuffle as I can use it while doing sports and at work before opening the store I work for. I think the TOEFL test is a necessary and great way to measure prospective students' English skills as people come from very different language backgrounds. Thank you!

Raghava in India I am currently studying in class 12 in New Delhi, and aspire to study engineering abroad next year. I'm a great fan of music, and will use my iPod to listen to my favourite classics. TOEFL was definitely an important exam for me, and I relied solely on TestDEN to prepare for it. I'm happy to say that this turned out very well, and practice tests on testden.com really paid off. Thank you!

Jenny in Israel I would use the iPod during my long travels to work and back. I'm an electro-optics engineer in a small company in Israel. I also volunteer as a math and English tutor in a community center for underprivileged teenagers. I was very nervous about the TOEFL exam that I'm taking for an MBA application until I encountered TestDEN. The website taught me the exam structure and timing, gave me an opportunity to practice speaking and writing under real time conditions and I can surely say better prepared me for the TOEFL. I'd like to thank you, TestDEN, for both this opportunity to hone my English skills and perfect them for the TOEFL and for the iPod!

Felipe in Brazil I am a military from the brazilian air force and I will use the iPod to listen to music while I run. I liked very much to be part of this contest and I think that the TestDEN TOEFL test is a good way to verify what you will find in a future real TOEFL test.

Seidi in Finland Currently, I am an Abitur studying for my Matriculation examination. After graduating I'm planning to study Lutheran theology in university. I'm going to love the iPod Shuffle! I would mainly use it in my freetime and when I travel by bus or train. I still feel pretty nervous about the TEOFL test even though the tests from TestDEN.com helped me to get prepared for it and feel more comfortable about it. Thank you so much.

Gunveer in India I graduated as an engineer in July 2012. Since then, I have been working as an applications engineer with Oracle in India. As my university uses English as the official teaching language, preparing for TOEFL wasn't very tough for me. Although, laying hands on the right material is of utmost importance as only that would give you a proper understanding of the test. I was able to score a 114/120 on the TOEFL and would recommend that test takers should take as many practice tests as possible. Testden.com provides a very accurate simulation of the TOEFL test.

Maria in Poland Dear Testden! I wanted to thank you so much for your help! Your tests were very helpful, I got 110 on my exam all thanks to your practice tests!! They are the best way to prepare for your TOEFL exam, it's the only place online where you can get this kind of opportunity. Thank you again so much, I got this high score only thanks to your tests.

Kasumi in Japan I am very surprised and excited to hear that I was chosen to be a iPod winner! I am a university student. I want to use the iPod to listen to the podcast or when I'm on the bus. Few days ago, I took TOEFL for the first time. There, I was able to relax and perform well thanks to TestDen's Practice test. TestDen became a big help to me. Thank you TestDen!

Magali in USA I am currently doing an internship in Structured Finance in the US while studying for a Master degree in Management. I will use my iPod Shuffle to listen to music in the subway and when I go to the gym. I was pretty confident about the TOEFL test before taking it because I had numerous mock tests, so I guess I was kind of prepared. I had the official test last week and I have to admit that with some more pressure and several people in the same place, it was different. I haven't got the results yet but I hope they will be good enough for me.

Silvia from Germany I was very happy to learn that I have won something! I am a part-time English teacher. I have taken your test because I am now offering a TOEFL preperation course at the adult education centre in my town and I wanted to practise myself before getting started. I think the TOEFL is a very good test. TOEFL teaches structure and organisation for essays and prepares you very well for effective studying.

Adekunle from Nigeria I want to thank TestDEN for its free practice tests. I took several TOEFL practice tests on your website before i took my real TOEFL test. I just saw my result, I scored 101/120. Thank you TestDen for the help.

Mateusz from Poland I teach French. I like listening to audio books, so I would probably continue to develop my interest in literature thanks to this ipod. As far as the Toefl test is concerned, I must admit it is a very convenient exam, you can sign up one week before, it is fast and the results are published two weeks afterwards. I am very satisfied with my Toefl results because I got 110 points. I should add that I found TestDen really helpful at the last stage of my preparation.

Olya from Ukraine I work as a marketing trainee at Johnson&Johnson Ukraine. Though I'm a Bachelor of cultural studies, not marketing, I enjoy my job and especially, the team. It's a great experience, but I'd like to move forward and continue the studying in another country. I'm going to love the i-Pod Shuffle! I spend a lot of time while going somewhere in my city and it's so boring without a book or some music. For the TOEFL exam, I was nervous before the test and tried to concentrade, keep calm... I did it! My result is 110 of 120, and testden.com is one of the main resources for the preparation. Thank you once more!

Daniel from Brazil I'm currently studying civil engineering at the federal university, and I had taken the TOEFL test in order to study abroad for one year. The iPod Shuffle will be very usefull to me, as I love listening to music while jogging. The tests from TestDEN.com helped me to get prepared for the test and feel more comfortable about it, now I think I have the required knowledge to succeed at studying abroad, and I thank TestDEN for the help.

Natalia from Brazil I am a scriptwriter, currently applying for the Fulbright scholarship for a Master's degree in Screenwriting. Now that I'll have my own iPod, I'll be able to relax and just listen to some music while I write stories. Thank you so much for this gift and also for truly helping me during my preparation for the TOEFL test! I got a score of 106!

Julie from the Czech Republic I am currently preparing myself for studying at university. I am going to study dance therefore the iPod will be very useful. I will probably listen to the music to help me remember it for dancing. I also love English audio books. TOEFL is an interesting exam which is actually not only about English. It is really aimed on the abilities necessary to study at university. Your Free TOEFL Practice Test has helped me a lot because it gave me confidence. It was sort of first step to achieve a high score.

Radulescu from Romania I'm a student. This iPod Shuffle would be very useful to me besides listening to music, to listen to different recordings in English meant to improve my listening skills with the view to the TOEFL I am going to take soon. Considering the demo tests I've taken so far, I feel confident enough to take the TOEFL test soon. In my opinion, the test initself is relevant to the amount and level of knowledge expected by the universities that require it. Getting a good score takes a lot of work though, and a lot of commitment.

Plamena from Czech Republic At the moment I am a customer relations officer at Air France Customer Care department for the European market. Since I like travelling, I undertake journeys whenever I have the chance, so I will listen the iPod on my trips to make the soundtrack of my life and preserve the memories the songs will remind me of. I consider the TOEFL test an essential part of the application process for higher education. It is not only recognised by a variety of institutions, it is a test that gives you an impression of all the academic aspects. It also requires a broad general knowledge and examines the students on their quick reaction, flexibility and argumentation skills. You helped me so much to prepare for the real TOEFL test; the simulation was not only useful for preparing the candidate for the test format, it was valuable in the sense that it offered all four components of the test.

Jerome from Belgium I am looking for work in the humanitarian field or looking at opportunities to improve my academic qualifications. I travel a lot and really enjoy listening to music whenever I'm abroad. I'm also a mountaineer and climber and like to listen to music while on an expedition. Given the results obtained on Testden's practice tests, I suppose I should feel rather confident. I do believe that it's necessary to test people's abilities when it comes to studying in English. TOEFL tests are necessary and they are a good solution, yet some other things should be considered as well, such as a person's learning abilities or his or her abilities in his field.

Sebastian from Colombia I'm a student, and I'll be graduating in June 2012. I will store my favorite music in the ipod shuffle and listen to it when I'm home and during trips. Thanks to the practice I got at TestDEN.com, I was able to hone my english skills and understand what kind of questions are asked in the TOEFL. Thanks to this, I was a lot more relaxed during the actual test and got 114 out of 120!

Prashanth from India I am a Systems Engineer. I am a huge music lover and what better way to listen to some of my most favorite songs, than on an ipod. I got to know about your site through a friend of mine. He took the tests on your site before going on to take the actual TOEFL. He could easily clear the entry requirements for the universities that he was interested in. Since I was planning to take the TOEFL myself (part of the university application process), i looked up your site to start my preparations. Its been very good to prepare from there and has boosted my confidence before i go on to take the actual test. Thank you for all the help that is provided on your site.

Maira from Brazil I work as a Manager in Market Intelligence area, in a consumer goods company in Brazil. I will fill my iPod Shuffle with brazilian songs and I will listen to it in the United States, when I move there for the MBA program. I believe the TOEFL is a great test to measure the fluency level of foreign students. I prepared for the test with TESTDEN and it was an excellent choice. I took the TOEFL last week and got 110 (with 28 for reading and listening)!! And I am sure that I only got that result because of TestDEN!

Marcelo from Brazil I would like to thank the splendid TESTDEN course, without which I could not have achieved a total score of 92 on the TOEFL, and 27 in reading. I would recommend TESTDEN for anyone who needs to raise their English to a higher level. The TESTDEN course gave me the opportunity to become familiarized with TOEFL Ibt interface, times, and scores, which resulted in less pressure on the day I took the TOEFL test. And, as I was more relaxed my english have flowed naturally, which directly affected my result. Now, I am very confident that I will be accepted for my PhD at Canada.

Oleg from Ukraine I work as Sales and Marketing Director in the construction company GERC. Next year I plan to pursue full-time MBA studies in one of the top Canadian Business Schools. I will use my iPod Shuffle to listen to relaxation music and language learning materials during business trips. TestDen helped me to prepare well for my TOEFL exam. I took my official TOEFL ibt exam on the 13th November and scored 119.

Manuela from Colombia I am currently completing my studies on Product Design Engineering at EAFIT University. Since I don't have an mp3 player, I am sure I will enjoy listening to my favorite music on my new iPod everywhere, specially on my way home, on the bus, or during breaks at college.

Regarding the TOEFL test, I needed to take it because it was a requirement established by my college. Since I didn't really have a lot of time to prepare myself for it, I started searching online for help. I found TestDEN, and it became an excellent tool for my preparation, because it helped me understand the test's structure and type of questions. In fact, it was so helpful that I got an incredible score of 118 points! Thanks a lot, TestDEN!!

Noodang from Toronto I work at my husband's restaurant. Besides, I am a TOEFL student who planing to get test in June 2010. I am going to use it for not only studying but also leisure. I will download TOEFL listening practices and music to my iPod Shuffle, and listen to it while I am on my way to work and school.

TOEFL test is just a beginning of my goal. In fact, I have to pass it, for get in to college or university. Indeed, I wish to go to oversea institution. Previously, I have searched many websites that can help me to improve my TOEFL skill, and I finally found it!! From TestDEN, I have learned my strengths and weaknesses. Once again, "TestDEN" is the best site for studying TOEFL.

Andres from Colombia I am a student. I will enjoy my ipod shuffle as I need a music player. I would principally use it in my free times as when I go in the bus or on a trip where there's nothing anymore to do.

I think the TOEFL test is one of the most important tools for my future as it proves as an international student that I have has a very high profile in the english language and that I am able of studying in a university located in english speaking nations that may be an 80 percent of the actual countries because English is one of the most spoken languages in the world. That is why I take test den, for preparing for the real toefl test, where I should get in my first try a very high grade.

Alice from France I am a student at EDHEC Business School, but I am currently in my gap year. I am doing an internship in accounting in the hope of becoming a certified accountant. I will use my Ipod shuffle on my way to work, as I have to take the subway. I love listening to music.

I was really stressed out about the speaking part of the TOEFL because I have a very strong French accent. Using the testden allowed me to practice my enunciation. It worked, because I succeeded in having 110 at my TOEFL ibt. Thanks to the TOEFL, I may be able to go and study in Canada and I won an ipod!

Rama from India I am doing my final year in college. At present I do not have any music system in my college. So iPod Shuffle will be of great use to mine. Moreover I am very much fond for western music and I hope to use it effectively in my college.

To tell the truth, I was not so serious about TOEFL. Before one week of exam only I started my preparation and I started using your tests only. I just Google toefl practice tests and that is were I came to know your website. The best thing in your site was the steps and directions required for different sections. I got a clear cut picture after seeing it. Kindly continue your service and many students like me will get benefited. Again I thank you for this wonderful gift.

Вопросы 1-10 In the 1500's when the Spanish moved into what later was to become the southwestern United States, they encountered the ancestors of the modern-day Pueblo, Hopi, and Zuni peoples. These ancestors, known variously as the Basket Makers, the Line Anasazi, or the Ancient Ones, had lived in the area for at least 2,000 years. They were (5) an advanced agricultural people who used irrigation to help grow their crops. The Anasazi lived in houses constructed of adobe and wood. Anasazi houses were originally built in pits and were entered from the roof. But around the year 700 A.D., the Anasazi began to build their homes above ground and join them together into rambling multistoried complexes, which the Spanish called pueblos or villages. (10) Separate subterranean rooms in these pueblos ¡ª known as kivas or chapels ¡ª were set aside for religious ceremonials. Each kiva had a fire pit and a hole that was believed to lead to the underworld. The largest pueblos had five stories and more than 800 rooms. The Anasazi family was matrilinear, that is, descent was traced through the female. The sacred objects of the family were under the control of the oldest female, but the (15) actual ceremonies were conducted by her brother or son. Women owned the rooms in the pueblo and the crops, once they were harvested. While still growing, crops belonged to the men who, in contrast to most other Native American groups, planted them. The women made baskets and pottery; the men wove textiles and crafted turquoise jewelry. (20) Each village had two chiefs. The village chief dealt with land disputes and religious affairs. The war chief led the men in fighting during occasional conflicts that broke out with neighboring villages and directed the men in community building projects. The cohesive political and social organization of the Anasazi made it almost impossible for other groups to conquer them.

Вопросы 11-20 Barbed wire, first patented in the United States in 1867, played an important part in the development of American farming, as it enabled the settlers to make effective fencing to enclose their land and keep cattle away from their crops. This had a Line considerable effect on cattle ranching, since the herds no longer had unrestricted use of (5) the plains for grazing, and the fencing led to conflict between the farmers and the cattle ranchers. Before barbed wire came into general use, fencing was often made from serrated wire, which was unsatisfactory because it broke easily when under strain, and could snap in cold weather due to contraction. The first practical machine for producing (10) barbed wire was invented in 1874 by an Illinois farmer, and between then and the end of the century about 400 types of barbed wire were devised, of which only about a dozen were ever put to practical use. Modern barbed wire is made from mild steel, high-tensile steel, or aluminum. Mild steel and aluminum barbed wire have two strands twisted together to form a cable (15) which is stronger than single-strand wire and less affected by temperature changes. Single-strand wire, round or oval, is made from high-tensile steel with the barbs crimped or welded on. The steel wires used are galvanized ¡ª coated with zinc to make them rustproof. The two wires that make up the line wire or cable are fed separately into a machine at one end. They leave it at the other end twisted together and barbed. (20) The wire to make the barbs is fed into the machine from the sides and cut to length by knives that cut diagonally through the wire to produce a sharp point. This process continues automatically, and the finished barbed wire is wound onto reels, usually made of wire, in lengths of 400 meters or in weights of up to 50 kilograms. A variation of barbed wire is also used for military purposes. It is formed into long coils or entanglements called concertina wire.

Вопрос №19 According to the passage, concertina wire is used for livestock management international communications prison enclosures military purposes

Вопрос №20 Which of the following most closely resembles the fencing described in the passage?

Вопросы 21-29 Under certain circumstances, the human body must cope with gases at greater-than- normal atmospheric pressure. For example, gas pressures increase rapidly during a dive made with scuba gear because the breathing equipment allows divers to stay Line underwater longer and dive deeper. The pressure exerted on the human body increases (5) by 1 atmosphere for every 10 meters of depth in seawater, so that at 30 meters in seawater a diver is exposed to a pressure of about 4 atmospheres. The pressure of the gases being breathed must equal the external pressure applied to the body ; otherwise breathing is very difficult. Therefore all of the gases in the air breathed by a scuba diver at 40 meters are present at five times their usual pressure. Nitrogen, which (10) composes 80 percent of the air we breathe, usually causes a balmy feeling of well-being at this pressure. At a depth of 5 atmospheres, nitrogen causes symptoms resembling alcohol intoxication, known as nitrogen narcosis. Nitrogen narcosis apparently results from a direct effect on the brain of the large amounts of nitrogen dissolved in the blood. Deep dives are less dangerous if helium is substituted for (15) nitrogen, because under these pressures helium does not exert a similar narcotic effect. As a scuba diver descends, the pressure of nitrogen in the lungs increases. Nitrogen then diffuses from the lungs to the blood, and from the blood to body tissues. The reverse occurs when the diver surfaces ; the nitrogen pressure in the lungs falls and the nitrogen diffuses from the tissues into the blood, and from the blood into the lungs. If (20) the return to the surface is too rapid, nitrogen in the tissues and blood cannot diffuse out rapidly enough and nitrogen bubbles are formed. They can cause severe pains, particularly around the joints. Another complication may result if the breath is held during ascent. During ascent from a depth of 10 meters, the volume of air in the lungs will double because the air (25) pressure at the surface is only half of what it was at 10 meters. This change in volume may cause the lungs to distend and even rupture. This condition is called air embolism. To avoid this event, a diver must ascend slowly, never at a rate exceeding the rise of the exhaled air bubbles, and must exhale during ascent.

21. What does the passage mainly discuss?

Вопросы 30-39 Each advance in microscopic technique has provided scientists with new perspectives on the function of living organisms and the nature of matter itself. The invention of the visible-light microscope late in the sixteenth century introduced a previously unknown Line realm of single-celled plants and animals. In the twentieth century, electron microscopes (5) have provided direct views of viruses and minuscule surface structures. Now another type of microscope, one that utilizes x-rays rather than light or electrons, offers a different way of examining tiny details; it should extend human perception still farther into the natural world. The dream of building an x-ray microscope dates to 1895 ; its development, however, (10) was virtually halted in the 1940's because the development of the electron microscope was progressing rapidly. During the 1940's, electron microscopes routinely achieved resolution better than that possible with a visible-light microscope, while the performance of x-ray microscopes resisted improvement. In recent years, however, interest in x-ray microscopes has revived, largely because of advances such as the (15) development of new sources of x-ray illumination. As a result, the brightness available today is millions of times that of x-ray tubes, which, for most of the century, were the only available sources of soft x-rays. The new x-ray microscopes considerably improve on the resolution provided by optical microscopes. They can also be used to map the distribution of certain chemical elements. (20) Some can form pictures in extremely short times ; others hold the promise of special capabilities such as three-dimensional imaging. Unlike conventional electron microscopy, x-ray microscopy enables specimens to be kept in air and in water, which means that biological samples can be studied under conditions similar to their natural state. The illumination used, so-called soft x-rays in the wavelength range of twenty to forty (25) angstroms(an angstrom is one ten-billionth of a meter), is also sufficiently penetrating to image intact biological cells in many cases. Because of the wavelength of the x-rays used, soft x-ray microscopes will never match the highest resolution possible with electron microscopes. Rather, their special properties will make possible investigations that will complement those performed with light- and electron-based instruments.

30. What does the passage mainly discuss?

The detail seen through a microscope Sources of illumination for microscopes A new kind of microscope Outdated microscopic techniques

Вопрос №31 According to the passage, the invention of the visible-light microscope allowed scientists to see viruses directly develop the electron microscope late on understand more about the distribution of the chemical elements discover single-celled plants and animals they had never seen before

Вопрос №32 The word "minuscule" in line 5 s closest in meaning to circular dangerous complex tiny

Вопрос №33 The word "it" in line 7 refers to a type of microscope human perception the natural world light

Вопрос №34 Why does the author mention the visible-light microscope in the first paragraph? To begin a discussion of sixteenth-century discoveries To put the x-ray microscope in a historical perspective To show how limited its uses are To explain how it functioned

Вопрос №35 Why did it take so long to develop the x-ray microscope? Funds for research were insufficient. The source of illumination was not bright enough until recently. Materials used to manufacture x-ray tubes were difficult to obtain X-ray microscopes were too complicated to operate.

Вопрос №36 The word "enables" in line 22 is closest in meaning to constitutes specifies expands allows

Вопрос №37 The word "Rather" on line 28 is closest in meaning to Significantly Preferably Somewhat Instead

Вопрос №38 The word "those" in line 29 refers to properties investigations microscopes x-rays

Вопрос №39 Based on the information in the passage, what can be inferred about x-ray microscopes in the future? They will probably replace electron microscopes altogether. They will eventually be much cheaper to produce than they are now. They will provide information not available from other kinds of microscopes. They will eventually change the illumination rage that they now use.

Вопросы 40-50 Perhaps the most striking quality of satiric literature is its freshness, its originality of perspective. Satire rarely offers original ideas. Instead, it presents the familiar in a new form. Satirists do not offer the world new philosophies. What they do is look at Line familiar conditions from a perspective that makes these conditions seem foolish, (5) harmful, or affected. Satire jars us out of complacence into a pleasantly shocked realization that many of the values we unquestioningly accept are false. Don Quixote makes chivalry seem absurd ; Brave New World ridicules the pretensions of science ; A Modest Proposal dramatizes starvation by advocating cannibalism. None of these ideas is original. Chivalry was suspect before Cervantes, humanists objected to the claims of (10) pure science before Aldous Huxley, and people were aware of famine before Swift. It was not the originality of the idea that made these satires popular. It was the manner of expression, the satiric method, that made them interesting and entertaining. Satires are read because they are aesthetically satisfying works of art, not because they are morally wholesome or ethically instructive. They are stimulating and refreshing because with (15) commonsense briskness they brush away illusions and secondhand opinions. With spontaneous irreverence, satire rearranges perspectives, scrambles familiar objects into incongruous juxtaposition, and speaks in a personal idiom instead of abstract platitude. Satire exists because there is need for it. It has lived because readers appreciate a refreshing stimulus, an irreverent reminder that they live in a world of platitudinous (20) thinking, cheap moralizing, and foolish philosophy. Satire serves to prod people into an awareness of truth, though rarely to any action on behalf of truth. Satire tends to remind people that much of what they see, hear, and read in popular media is sanctimonious, sentimental, and only partially true. Life resembles in only a slight degree the popular image of it. Soldiers rarely hold the ideals that movies attribute to (25) them, nor do ordinary citizens devote their lives to unselfish service of humanity. Intelligent people know these things but tend to forget them when they do not hear them expressed.
