TOEIC Secrets Study Guide

Covers NEW Speaking and Writing Tests

How to Pass the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC), using our easy step-by-step TOEIC study guide, without weeks and months of endless studying...

Dear Friend,

On a beautiful late spring afternoon, this past year, a young man received the devastating news. He had just gotten back his result on the TOEIC. It was not what he had hoped for. In fact, it was not even close to the expectations he had considering his past experience and educational background.

He had failed.

Then he remembered his friends and felt even worse. He did not look forward to having to tell them the embarrassing news, especially after he had boasted that it was no big deal. He had been procrastinating about taking the exam because he hated standardized tests, and this only confirmed his hatred.

"What will I do now?" he thought with dismay, slowly realizing the harsh reality of his predicament and its upsetting implications on his future.

How to Solve the Problem

Unfortunately, this hypothetical situation occurs all the time. Someone thought they were going to breeze through the examination, told all their friends, made plans for their future, and then got an embarrassing reality check from the TOEIC.

The Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) is quite simply an objective assessment of a test taker's requisite foundation of knowledge and skills.

TOEIC scores are used by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) as a uniform standard of qualification. While it may not be fair, all of a person's plans for the future may be dependent upon needing a certain TOEIC score.

That is the whole purpose of the TOEIC Secrets study guide: to give test takers the keys to understand how to succeed on the TOEIC.

Our Study Guide for the TOEIC Test Is Unlike Any Other

If you'd like to get the TOEIC score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the TOEIC is "good enough," and to beat the test taking game, then this might be the most important message you read this year.

Our comprehensive study guide for the TOEIC is written by our TOEIC experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the TOEIC. Our original research into the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC), offered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the TOEIC. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the TOEIC.

Now, we know you may be skeptical, so let us give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:

The Three Reasons To Believe What We Say

The First Reason:

Our company's name is Mometrix Test Preparation, and we have a team of standardized test researchers who have worked on developing our study guide for the TOEIC. The standards for who gets to work on the team are very strict- we demand the best for our customers, and only those who met our exacting standards made the cut. The dedicated research staff have years of combined experience in mastering the content and skills necessary to succeed on the toughest exams.

The Second Reason:

Some academic studies have revealed that test takers do not really benefit from the traditional test preparation process. But we knew there had to be a solution- if test takers were not doing well on the TOEIC despite high intelligence, there had to be a set of secret keys to the test that would open the door of success for these test takers.

We believe we have succeeded in finding the secret keys of the exam. What we found was surprising, and in some cases ridiculously simple once explained to the average test taker.

We put the findings together in a thorough, concise study guide that we believe allows any test taker, at any skill level, to improve his or her results dramatically with a minimum of effort.

The Third Reason:

We created the product in part because we were frustrated by the options available to test takers who really wanted to do well on the TOEIC.

A common approach is to TEACH the material, instead of TEACHING THE TEST. That's not necessarily good enough for the TOEIC- you have to know how to apply the knowledge. Most test takers already have a general knowledge of the material that will be covered on the exam.

One reason some test takers do well on the day of the test is that they have made the critical connection between the material they learned and how to use the material to succeed on the TOEIC.

Our guide addresses the difference between merely knowing the material and knowing how to use the material to perform on test day.

You're going to save time, money, and aggravation. You'll learn to avoid the mistakes and the bad strategies that you've been vulnerable to. Just for starters, here are some ways our product can help your score on the TOEIC...

  • Our quick problem solving method for Listening problems- You speed right through these notorious memory drainers
  • Our exclusive "calibration strategy" to help you never go too fast OR too slow when answering even the toughest questions

  • How the problem of procrastination can kill your chance of success, and the most important thing you can do about it
  • How to know when you've studied as much as you need to for the exam- and the reason why we think some people should spend LESS time studying for the test

  • How to predict the right answer before you see the answer choices- and how to prevent the wrong answers from "polluting" your mind and tempting you into a trap designed by the test writers
  • Why answers that "sound" correct are often the very ones that are wrong- and how to tell the difference between the right answer and the many clever-sounding traps set for you by the test writers
  • Our "benchmark" method for deciding which of the answer choices you should pick
  • How some of the random bits of information in a question often "give away" the right answer choice
  • How to "milk the question" for clues to the right answer even if you have no idea what the question is asking about

  • How to use our brainstorming method to get "inside the question" and reveal the hard-to-find clues and some of the subtle things you didn't realize you knew
  • Do you know what a "hedge phrase" is? Learn why looking for the key "weasel words" in the question can help identify the correct answer
  • Why "new information" in the answer choices almost always means that the answer choice is wrong- and the way to avoid this trick planted by the clever test writers
  • Learn to avoid this time-draining mistake on the test - why the technical terms you don't know can be a major stumbling block and waste precious time, and the way that you can work around them
  • The secret to using the contextual clues in the questions and the answer choices to make important distinctions between the right and the wrong answer choices
  • The two situations where you should NOT check your answers thoroughly
  • How to avoid careless mistakes by using the quick "double check" system. It will more than pay for itself relative to the time it will take you
  • Test writers will often quote directly from the question in an answer- learn whether this is something you should trust or avoid
  • Why "extreme statements" in the answer choices are dead giveaways for wrong answers- find out how to detect the subtle differences between reasonable answers and the answers that are almost always wrong
  • Learn how to group your answer choices into "families" that often narrows down the pool of correct answers- this is a quick way to immediately eliminate one or two of the answer choices and increase your odds of getting the question right

Now, you're probably wondering how and why we can do all the things we claim.

Let us explain.

Before we go any further, let us clarify what TOEIC Secrets is not. It is not a stale rehash of all of the things you have already learned in the past.

TOEIC Secrets is our exclusive collection of the tips and the information that we have specially selected to give you the best results on the TOEIC for the least time spent studying. It's written in everyday language and is easy to use.

Listen to what our customers say about other Mometrix test preparation products.

I purchased the Secrets file, and I just wanted to let you know that I got a 99% on my test. I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures.

My name is Chris. I used the Secrets study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS

I just had to thank you guys for the test prep! I bought the guide as a last minute prep, I mean maybe 5 hours before the test. Like I said, I had ZERO preparation! I was nervous about the test let alone receiving the score I needed. I read the guide through only once before test time and needless to say, the only way I passed was thanks to your refresher!!

Just dropping you a note to let you know that I am completely satisfied with the product. I had already taken the test once and landed in the 75 percentile of those taking it with me. I took the test a second time and used some of your tips and raised my score to the 97 percentile. Thanks for my much improved score.

I heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you!

Warning: Always Look for These 6 Criteria

There is a lot of confusion surrounding studying for the TOEIC, and standardized tests in general. In our opinion, these are the 6 criteria you should always look for in a study guide for the TOEIC:

One: The guide must be written by writers who have painstakingly researched the topics and concepts needed to succeed on the TOEIC. The blind cannot hope to lead the blind.

Two: The guide must be written in easy-to-use everyday language so all test takers can access the information.

Three: The guide must be to-the-point, with no fluff to distract the test taker from the truly important information.

Four: The guide must address the test first, the material second. If the material was the only thing that was important, then every test taker that understood the material should get a perfect score- that doesn't happen because there's a difference between simply knowing what's on the test and the way you perform on the test. You want a study guide to close that gap.

Five: The guide must motivate the test taker to actually study for the exam. If the guide is hard to read, the time spent studying will be slow and painful, and the results will be meager.

Six: The guide must be guaranteed- if you don't pass with flying colors, you get your money back- no questions asked.

You get at least 10 times your money's worth!

When you consider what's at stake with the exam, we believe the value of our study guide gives you at least ten times your money's worth.

In summary, here's what you get:
