Sebagaimana diketahui, TOEFL Test (Paper Based Test) terdiri atas 3 section :
- Listening Comprehension (50 Pertanyaan)
- Structure & Written Expression (40 Pertanyaan)
- Reading Comprehension (60 Pertanyaan)
Seluruh soal (150 soal) harus anda selesaikan menjawabnya dalam 100 menit. 

Penjelasan untuk section 1 : Listening comprehension :
Listening Comprehension terbagi atas 3 bagian :
- Part A:
Disini anda akan mendengar speaker membacakan kalimat-kalimat tertentu untuk setiap nomor soal. Tugas anda adalah mencari kalimat pada pilihan jawaban A, B, C, D, yang artinya paling mendekati arti kalimat yang dibacakan. Jangan terkecoh dengan pilihan jawaban yang mengandung kata-kata yang serupa dengan yang dibacakan speaker di audio, karena itu biasanya jawaban yang salah. Jadi, carilah kalimat jawaban yang arti keseluruhannya serupa dengan kalimat yang dibacakan, dan bukan jawaban yang hanya berisi kata-kata yang sama, tapi bisa jadi arti keseluruhannya berbeda.
Part B :
Disini, untuk setiap nomor soal, akan ada pembicaraan antara Laki-laki (Man) dan Perempuan (Woman). Lalu diikuti pertanyaan. Tugas anda menjawab pertanyaan, berdasarkan percakapan yang anda dengar.
Part C :
Pada Part C, anda akan mendengar satu cerita/percakapan panjang, yang harus anda gunakan untuk menjawab 3-5 pertanyaan. Karena itu, adalah penting sekali bagi anda untuk dapat mengingat data/informasi penting yang disampaikan dalam percakapan/cerita.
Untuk Section 2 & 3, kerjakan seperti test biasa.

Questions 31 through 34 are based on the following reading.
Elizabeth Blackwell was born in England in 1821, and emigrated to New York City when she was ten years old. One day she decided that she wanted to become a doctor. That was nearly impossible for a woman in the middle of the nineteenth century. After writing many letters seeking admission to medical school, she was finally accepted by a doctor in Philadelphia. So determined was she, that she taught school and gave music lessons to earn money for her tuition.
In1849, after graduation from medical school, she decided to further her education in Paris. She wanted to be a surgeon, but a serious eye infection forced her to abandon the idea.
Upon returning to the United States, she found it difficult to start her own practice because she was a woman. By 1857 Elizabeth and her sister, also a doctor, along with another female doctor, managed to open a new hospital, the first for women and children. Besides being the first female physician and founding her own hospital, she also established the first medical school for women.

B. She wrote too many letters
C. She couldn’t graduate from medical school.
D. She couldn’t establish her hospital.

33. How many years elapsed between her graduation from medical school and the opening of her hospital?

A. she became the first female physician.
B. she was the first woman surgeon
C. she and several other women founded the first hospital for women and children.
D. she established the first medical school for women.



Questions 35 through 38 are based on the following reading.

Glands manufacture and secrete necessary substances. Exocrine glands secrete their products through ducts, but endocrine glands, or ductless glands release their products directly into the bloodstream.
One important endocrine gland is the thyroid gland. It is in the neck and has two lobes, one on each side of the windpipe. The thyroid gland collects iodine from the blood and produces thyroxine, an important hormone, which is stores in an inactive form. When thyroxine is needed by the body, the thyroid gland excretes it directly into the bloodstream. Thyroxine is combined in the body cells with other chemicals and affects many functions of the body.
The thyroid gland may be underactive or overactive, resulting in problems. An underactive thyroid causes hypothyroidism, while an overactive one causes hyperthyroidism. The former problem, called myxedema in adults and cretinism in children, causes the growth process to slow down. A cretin’s body and mind do not grow to their full potential. Hyperthyroidism, on the other hand, results in extreme nervousness, an increase in heart action, and other problems.
Either hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism may result in goiter, or an enlarged thyroid gland. A goiter will appear when the body is not getting enough iodine. Goiter is less common today, since most people use iodized salt.

35. The thyroid gland is called an endocrine gland
A. because it has ducts
B. because it has lobes
C. because it excretes directly into the bloodstream
D. because it is located in the neck.

36. A cretin is
A. a child with hyperthyroidism
B. an adult with an underperforming thyroid gland
C. a young person with hypothyroidism
D. an extremely irritable child

37. Which of the following is a probable result of myxedema ?
A. sluggishness
B. hyperactivity
C. overproduction of thyroxine
D. perspiration

38. A goiter is
A. a person with myxedema
B. a swollen thyroid gland
C. an underactive thyroid gland
D. a chemical.



Questions 39 through 43 are based on the following reading.

A recent investigation by scientists at the US Geological Survey shows that strange animal behavior might help predict future earthquakes. Investigators found such occurrences in a ten – kilometer radius of the epicenter of a fairly recent quake. Some birds screeched and flew about wildly; dogs yelped and ran around uncontrollably.
Scientists believe that animals can perceive these environmental changes as early as several days before the mishap.
In 1976 after observing animal behavior, the Chinese were able to predict a devastating quake. Although hundreds of thousands of people were killed, the government was able to evacuate millions of other people and thus keep the death toll at a lower level.

Questions 55 through 60 are based on the following reading.

Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a bacteria that has been isolated from sea water, shell fish, finfish, plankton, and salt springs. It has been a major cause of food poisoning in Japan and the Japanese have done several studies on it. They have confirmed the presence of V. parahaemolyticus in the north and central Pacific with the highest abundance in inshore waters, particularly in or near large harbors.
A man named Nishio studied the relationship between the chloride content of sea water and the seasonal distribution of V. parahaemolyticus in sea water and concluded that while the isolation of V. parahaemolyticus was independent of the sodium chloride content, the distribution of V. parahaemolyticus in sea water was dependent on the water temperature. In fact, it has been isolated in high frequencies during summer, from June to September, but was not isolated with the same frequency in winter.
