You will have to decide whether or not you are going to clarify yourself the TOEIC with reliable resources or whether you are going to take a TOEIC training class. In order to get the best grades, you should do both.

Third is, Divide your study time appropriately. You have to divide your study week by focusing on a certain segment each day. Each section has a value of the certain amount of points. Don't spend too much time studying one section.
