上午刚刚查到8.16的成绩,103(R28+L24+S23+W28)虽然不高(主要跪在了听力上。。。 )但是应该已经够用了,觉得总该给地里写点什么,所以就有了这篇帖子。

先介绍一下我的基本情况,楼主目前已经工作一年了,只能晚上复习,由于之前一直拖延,所以到了七月底八月初才开始断断续续准备托福考试,目前英语多少有一些生疏了,只能白天工作,晚上抓紧时间准备考试,还是非常辛苦的,由于时间不够,所以就没怎么练习听力,主要是做了TPO的阅读和口语,熟悉考试形式,当然这也直接导致了我听力非常渣的分数。各位一定要重视听力啊!因为这是最好拿分,也是最容易失误的地方了。

先说一下我的复习材料,由于只有半个多月复习时间,所以就认准了TPO这一份资料,外加黄金口语八十套。至于OG什么的已经在七月中下旬已经草草的看过一遍,对考试也有了个大概的认识。
不得不说TPO确实是非常好的复习材料,和考试真题风格完全一致,所以非常值得去反复思考和体会,由于我两个月之前考了G,所以在7月底尝试做了一套TPO之后,发现T的阅读简直太有爱了有没有!只要你认真读了,就不会错啊!当然这也间接的造成了我在准备前期的拖延,因为觉得阅读没啥可做的,所以就拖到了八月初才开始大量做TPO,可是一做不要紧,发现了非常多的问题,因为总是会因为粗心每套错5-6个,再加上之前练的都是前10套里面的题目,普遍偏简单,所以我在挑25套左右的题目做时,还是明显发现了难度的增加,因此小恐慌了一阵,也算是对TPO提起了充足的重视,最后到考前大约做了10套左右,大部分是调着20套以后的做,因为前面的题目较考试来说还是偏简单的,所以如果你和我一样准备时间不充分的话,那么可以倒着做。
至于黄金口语八十套,后面会说到。

对于考试来说

阅读

前面提到过,对于认真准备完G的同学,T的阅读简直就是太可爱太友好了,都没有任何的逻辑陷阱,而且单词上不会有任何障碍,靠啃G的老底绰绰有余,只要你通读了文章,题目基本是不会做错的,但是这个通读全文的要求却不是那么容易达到的,我在做题的时候经常就会非常注意力不集中,所以做TPO经常是,总觉得简单简单,但是到头来每套总是还会错5-6个,而且到考前都没有太大的提高,所以看来认真和细致虽然说起来容易,但是绝对没那么容易达到。所以考完G的同学可以战略上藐视T的阅读,但是战术上还是要打起十二分的注意力,毕竟这是能帮你拿分的项目。

至于做题的方法,由于基本是按文章顺序来安排的,所以我是读一段,然后做一段的题目,然后再读下一段这样子,基本文章读完,题目做完。一篇控制在20分钟,保持好节奏,由于我平时练习TPO的时候,软件是不允许我在做完第二篇阅读后,回去再修改第一套阅读的结果的,所以我平时就养成一变搞定的习惯,做完不再回头检查。到了考场上才发现原来是可以检查前面的题目的给跪。。。不过这样让我能够保持很好的做题节奏。

TPO做完是一定要分析很总结的,尤其是自己经常错误的题目,我曾经联系时三选题基本必错,所以就要有意识的分析和总结错误,这样才有提高。另外,对于那些你在做题过程中有犹豫过的题目也要记录下来,因为这类题目如果我们蒙对了,可能在对答案的时候就被忽视了,因为我们总是倾向于关注自己的错题,不确定的题目我们能做对,说明我们所采用的方法是具有一定的合理性的,应该继续保持,但是既然做的时候不确定,还是说明自己的方法不够完善,需要进一步总结,这样才能越做题越有信心,才能有提高。

P.S TPO阅读中有些概念和内容是会在考试中出现的,我之前做过一套讲冷血动物调节体温的,里面介绍到一个概念,就是海洋中动物的脚蹼很容易散失热量,因此通过动脉血液来预热回流的静脉血液,防止会流血液温度过低加速热量散失,结果在考试的时候就考了一个一模一样的概念,只不过文章内容变了变,幸好我当时每篇阅读做完都有分析,否则考试的时候能否搞懂这个概念都是两说了。。。所以做过的提一定要分析。

另外更重要的一点,在练习时要注意自己的心态变化。比如,一套阅读做完,你是觉得简单还是难?感觉自己会错几个?之所以要有感觉,是因为楼主属于那种容易自我感觉良好的烂人,经常做到一半,心想这题真他妈简单,老子一定能全对,所以就越做越飘飘然,但是一对答案发现还是会错2、3个;有时候感觉要跪了,其实也只是比平时多错了一个而已。因此我就总结出来自己的感觉是不准的,而且也发现自己的错误感觉甚至会影响到我的判断,因此我在考试时就会有告诉自己不要有任何感觉才是最正常的状态,当然这一点是因人而异的,大家可以根据自己的个性调整,可能有的同学就是需要不停地给自己打气才能发挥的好,总之大家要在平时的练习中就学会调节自己的心理状态,这样才能保证在考场有一个正常的发挥。

听力

听力我是比较没有发言权的,因为准备的时间太短了,练习的确实不到位,我主要是分析自己的错题为主,发现自己主要是因为漏听信息,就会主动去思考T喜欢把哪些信息作为考察点,听到哪些关键的词汇会预示着后面是考察点等等。关于记不记笔记这个问题,我只是记自己认为重要的信息,我觉得这个问题因人而异,因为记笔记而漏听信息也是得不偿失的,采用你最习惯,正确率最高的方法就行了。

口语

口语FFF,8月16日那一场机经一点都没中。我起初是下了黄金口语80套,然后又下了TPO小站Jacky的录音,由于懒,所以只是听录音,由于二逼,我听着Jacky说的那么好,自动脑补自己也能像他那样流利,所以更不练了。结果到了八月初一开口,发现自己就是个人渣啊,根本不知道说什么,而且一着急还会结结结结结巴。。。然后才开始照着黄金口语八十套来列自己的提纲,而且发现Jacky的并不适合我们模仿,所以后来找到了darisguo妹子的录音:http://www.yeeaoo.com/user_2039398.html,这个妹子口语考了30,语速适中,吐字清晰,内容丰富,非常值得模仿!后来发现有些内容其实可以通用的,比如说一个例子,问你:most important decision你可以用,问你the place you like best你也可以用,这样子就会效率高很多,练到什么标准呢,就是拿到任何题目都可以用你的例子去套,这样以不变应万变。

至于Task3-6,我是考前看了Robin大神的帖子:http://www.gter.net/a-21833-1.html,才想明白怎么答的,总的来说Task4-6是有固定套路的,心中有了套路,考试时就不会慌,至少不会像我一样一着急就口吃了。。。。

说的时候要录音然后放来听,才能发现问题。

Task1 &2
如果遇到自己非常熟悉的内容,一定要慢慢说,说清楚!

Task3
开头可以说:The woman/man disagree/agree with the____ that______
He/she thinks______ because____ she points out that /feels
She agrees that______

Task 5
1. 说明问题
2. 罗列解决方式
3. What you prefer?

Task 6
1.the topic the professor discuss
2.point 1 + example
3.point 2 + example


写作

其实一些G的写作方法,完全可以照搬到T上来。

对于综合写作来说,我感觉最重要的不是句式和用词,而是你要尽可能完全的展示出lecture主要的观点,一般会有三点,可以分成三段写,不写结尾段。而且还要明确的写出这些观点是如何和Reading passage的内容相一致/抵触的,因为这才是综合写作的核心,这两项都是在OG上有严格要求的,所以只要满足,分数一定不会低,至于字数,我觉得适中就好300~350,语言可以像GRE的Argument一样干巴巴的也没关系,重要的是结构清晰,观点准确!可以有一个自己的框架模板,这样子考试的时候,有模板在,你会镇定很多。附一篇练习,貌似TPO20几套讲大海中奇怪声音的问题,觉得下面这篇干巴巴的,我写文章就是这个风格,实战检验这样子也是能拿Good的。

There are several explainations about the strange sounds heard by the Russian submarines but all of them are denied by the professor in the lecture.

First of the all, the professor claims that the sound can not be made by the orcas in the sea. Although the reading passage shows that the orcas live in that area and may make sounds when they are trying to attract other orchs. The professor contradicts this claim by stating that the orca whales only live in the surface of the ocean but the submarines are deep in the water. It is impossible for the submarines to receive their sound. Also, the orca whales could be detected by the sonar but the reading passage claims that they found nothing on sonar.So the sounds are not from the orch whales.

As with the giant squids, it is true that they might have the ability to emit sound according to the passage. Also, owing to their soft bodies, they are truly difficult to be detected by the sonar.But the professor cast doubt on this idea mainly because the strange sound only last for two decades, from 1960 to 1980. After that time, no such sounds were found again in that area but the squids were still live in that area. If the second idea is true, the strange sounds should not disappear.

Finally,The  theaory that the quakers were from the other country's submarines is denied by the professor. The professor gives to reasons two support her conclusion. First of all, the strange sounds change their direction very quickly but submarines can not be that fast. Moreover no noise of submarine's engine were detected. There is no such technology could build the submarine that fast and quiet.So the professor quite disagrees with what the passage claims.

独立写作
我当初在看到独立写作时,心想这玩意不就是issue吗,只不过要写的骚一些,比如要注意句式的多变,用词的多样化,另外可以多多的举一些例子,因为毕竟T是一个语言考试,所以写的干巴巴毕竟不好。大致结构可以粗暴简单的如下所示:

My Plot
        1. My point of view + background (说明观点,然后适当展开,说明为什么支持观点,为什么反对另一个观点)
        2. 分论点一+解释分论点+支撑分论点+具体举例+(总结可选)
        3. 分论点二+解释分论点+支撑分论点+具体举例+(总结可选)
        4. 结尾,更换句式,重述自己的观点。

由于我写issue时就比较意识流,想到什么写什么,所以没有固定的模板,但是任何主题我都会找到2-3个topic sentence,然后展开成三段,加上一些例子支持我的论据,最后结尾再重述观点,就OK了。
考完最大的经验就是:字数一定要多!看来各位论坛前辈说的没错啊,ETS果然一见450+的字数就给Good啊,各位如果考试时能多码字,尽可能的写多点,这次考试我有点没思路,所以只码了450字,考完之后很没底。。。还好最后是个Good,要不然可能都上不了一百了。
唯一练过一篇,各位批判着看,题目是:学生是该多选课还是少选课的题,G里面也有类似的题目,所以拿来就能喷。。。由于比较懒,所以用词干巴巴,不过写成这样应该能有个Good了。

In my point of view, I think it is much better for students to have three or four lessons in a semmester rather than having too many lessons. Maybe it is true that some students of special talent have the ability to grasp many lessons in a short semester. But to most of the students, having too many lessons will make them too tired to learn and at last the student may have a very poor understanding of each class. That is really a bad result.

Having too many lessons in one semester will make the students very tired. When the students choose a lesson, they not only need to spend time in the classroom but also need to spend time doing the homework and reading some related books that the teacher recommands. So, maybe it is true that after choosing 3 or 4 classes, the timetable may still seem very empty which makes the students feel they still have the time and energy to take several other lessons. However, it is wrong a judgement. Although a student have enough time to take the classes, he might not have enough time to finish the projects of each lessons. For example, when I was in first semester in college, I take six lessons in a row. Guess what? It is true that I have the time to go to these lessons, but I barely have the energy to finish all the task and homework of these lessons. Each of the projects is time consuming. So I stay up late every night to cover them all and at last I barely failed one of these lessons.

On the other hand, finish learning the lessons doestn't mean that you have a good understanding of them. Sometimes the students may not know what the lessons are really about at the end of the semester. Having an adequate number of lessons would allow the students to look deeply into the subjects and have a good understanding of them. Also, some complex subjects such as physics, and mathematics need a long time for students to comprehend and digust. For instance, the students of the medical science usually need an extra year to study their major classes than other students. The school thinks an extra year will guarentee the students a good understanding of what they learn. After all, in most of the time, the quality weighs more important than the quantity.

Also, having lessons is not the only part of the school life. The students also needs time to do what they like such as joining clubs, traveling with friends and so on. The school life will be tiring and dull if it is only about taking lessons. Moreover, these after-class activites wlll give students a good mood and status which in return help them perform better in their lessons.

Qualities weighs much more heavier than quantities. It is very important for students to take adequate number of lessons in one semester. Anyway, the purpose of learning is to understant and digust rather than just finish them as a machine.

最后祝各位考T顺利! 不要像大叔一样懒猪一只。。。
