The lecture is supposed to be illustrative in nature expanding on the content of the reading rather than presenting an argument about it. This could seriously mislead students. The book has an accurate depiction of question five.
Sadly, this question will be removed from the test starting August 1, The book has an accurate depiction of question six. Grade: B- Accuracy writing : This section is mostly accurate. I give Princeton Review a lot of praise, since most publishers mess these up badly. The book totally ignores multiple choice and paired choice prompts.
The structure of the test is as follows:. Each passage will be followed by 12 to 14 multiple-choice questions about the content of the passage. Most of these questions will be worth one point each, though a few toward the end of the section may be worth more.
You will have either 60 or 80 minutes to complete the entire section. Each selection will be either an academic lecture or a casual conversation. After each selection, there will be five or six multiple-choice questions about the content of the lecture or conversation.
You will have 60 to 90 minutes to complete the entire section. Most speaking tasks will also require some listening and some reading.
Each task will ask you to speak for 45 or 60 seconds, depending on the task, and you will have 20 minutes to complete the entire section. You will have 50 minutes to complete the entire section. Which Test Should You Take? Most students will take the Internet-based test, which is offered more than 50 times a year at centers that have Internet access.
However, some centers do not have Internet access; therefore, a paper version is offered 4 times a year. Because they are administered less frequently, paper-based tests tend to fill up very quickly.
Also, the paper-based test is not available at all centers. Because the Internet-based test assesses all four areas of communication, it is the preferred test at most universities. If you do not have Internet access , y ou can call ETS at or The paper- delivered or pape r-based test is different from the Internet-based test in both structure and scoring.
How Is the Test Scored? Reading, Listening, and Writing. Each score corresponds to a percentile ranking. This number shows how your score compares with. For example, a total score of would put you in the 89th percentile, meaning that you scored higher than 89 out of test takers, whereas a score of 50 would put you in the 26th percentile. For example, the Reading and Listening sections contain roughly questions each.
You will get one point for each correct answer some Reading section. For help finding the right college for you, go online to Princeton Review. The Writing and Speaking sections are scored somewhat differently. Each Writing sample receives a score between 0 and 5. These raw scores are then converted to the 0 to 30 scale. Similarly, each Speaking task receives a score from 0 to 4. Here, you will be scored on how well you are able to speak spontaneously and coherently communicate your ideas.
While you will only have two tasks -- the fewest of any section -- you will also only have 50 minutes to accomplish them which can go by quickly when engaging in longer form writing.
