TOEIC test is actually not hard. It much easier than TOFEL or any kind of English test for enter university. If you took any of those test, you won't find TOEIC is hard. But, it doesn't mean TOEIC was so easy for me.
TOEIC only has two parts: listening and reading. For each of them, there are 100 questions. Listening part has 4 different test:
look at picture and listen to the voice, choose the best answer (very easy, but be careful with the British way of talking). two people talking, choose the best answer (just one question per talking, easy). two people talking, choose the best answer (three questions per talking, harder than before but still kind of easy). One long talking about something, choose the best answer. (three questions per talking. Talking will only play for one time, so you have to remember the talking to be able to answer questions. hardest one in all of 4, but not too hard).
For listening text, my thinking is while you are taking the text, don't think too much, choose the best answer come up to your mind first. If you start to think, you will miss the next question. The best way to make the listening skill higher will be always listen to TV, RADIO or MOVIE without look at it.
The reading test....actually it is not that hard either, but you have to control your time well~!!I couldn't control my time well...so I think I lost a lot of points at the end of 20 questions since I didn't have time to do them. So the reading speed is very important~!!There are 3 type test for reading:Choose the best word and put in the sentence. (not hard. just choose the best one which you feel is right. )Choose the wrong word from sentence. (there will be four wrong ones which has underline. Same as last one, just choose the best one which you feel is right. not hard.)Reading one/two short information, and answer the questions. (Two to five questions per one reading. I think it was around 10 readings, so you have to control your time well~~!! The readings are not hard to understand, all of them are just information such as: about meeting, about phone bill, about new store opening...It not so hard, but if your reading speed is slow...like me...you will lose time~~!!)My advice for get higher reading skill is: the best way to do it is read all the letters you got from any kind of companies, if you live outside of English speaking country, the best way is go to internet and read news. All kind of news. And try to read and understand the news as fast as you can.)
Another thing is the TOEIC is not a computer test ...it just a normal test. I think it makes harder to control the time. If you will go take it, I think you won't find it's so hard. Just do your best and control the time well~~!! Then you can do it~!!!
