TOEFL Reading PDF from Magoosh (Free TOEFL Prep Resource!)

As they say, practice makes perfect! And that is definitely true for TOEFL Reading as well. 🙂 If you want to do well on this section of the exam, you need to practice, practice, practice. That’s why we created this free resource: a TOEFL Reading PDF, with one full question set similar to what you’d see on the TOEFL test.

TOEFL Reading Sample

Introducing Magoosh’s TOEFL Reading Sample PDF

In this TOEFL Reading Sample PDF, you will find:

  • One full-length, 5-paragraph reading passage
  • 10 questions (a complete set for a passage in the Reading section)
  • The correct answer and detailed explanations for each question
  • More resources for further learning

More TOEFL Reading Practice From Magoosh

And if you want more guidance, Magoosh TOEFL has six practice tests with sample answers, explanations, strategies and tips for the every TOEFL Reading question! And there’s moree! We also offer a second, longer TOEFL Reading PDF that includes all of the question types for the section. See the PDF in our TOEFL Reading Question Types post.

A TOEFL Reading Sample PDF from ETS

Of course, for the very best TOEFL Reading practice, it’s great to go to the source: Educational Testing Service (ETS), the company that makes the real TOEFL test. These authentic official practice materials really are the gold standard for realistic TOEFL iBT prep. ETS offers the following excellent TOEFL Reading practice free of charge:

  • The TOEFL Reading Practice Sets
  • This PDF represents one full official TOEFL Reading section.

  • TOEFL Quick Prep
  • This is an older resource, no longer hosted on the ETS web site. But this archived link will get you four PDFs of TOEFL proactice matieral, including plenty of Reading material. These question sets are a little out of date, with more than 10 questions per passage. But everything else is the same– same number of answer options, same length of passage, same question types, and so on. So Quick Prep still makes for excellent Reading practice questions! (Beware, though, that this older page loads a bit slowly.)

  • ETS’s official full-length practice TOEFL Test
  • This is by far the most authentic free way for test takers to build their TOEFL Reading skills: a full practice test by ETS, very similar to the real exam you’ll see on test day. Needless to say, this test includes a full TOEFL Reading section.

Happy studying!

Psst… don’t forget to download your FREE TOEFL reading sample PDF.

          Well, the first tip I’d give you is to figure out which aspects of TOEFL Reading are most difficult. There are many different dimensions to TOEFL Reading— pacing, vocabulary, multiple choice strategy on the questions, etc…. Most test-takers are strong in some aspects of TOEFL Reading, and weak in others. Figure out your strengths and weaknesses, and then build on your strengths while improving on your weaknesses. If your’e nto sure where to start just yet in your reading prep, check out the Magoosh TOEFL blog’s main page for TOEFL Reading. (It includes lots of great links!)

      Hi Lester,

      We are a company that helps students prepare for the TOEFL test, so I’m afraid that we don’t have all of the answers to your questions about Permanent Residency. You can learn all about the TOEFL (including cost, test centers and other details) on their website. .

      The IELTS and the TOEFL are different tests, but they test the same skills. Both are accepted by most universities. You can see more information about the similarities and differences between the TOEFL and IELTS here:
