Hi..karthik my name is Md. Karim & I have completed ma B.tech from ECE stream. I wanna go to abroad for further study,please guide me in which coaching I should take admission for TOEFL.After cracking the TOFEL exam did I get any scholarship for study…
Sure, why not?
Some employers prefer it so that they know you are certified in your knowledge of English.
Absolutely. This is a good decision Shri. I would suggest taking it online so you can finish it whenever you want to and have access to International curriculum. It only costs about Rs.2000 for a month. Why bother going to a local place?
Taking the TOEFL is definitely a big plus Gaurav. I recommend going to Jamboree or taking an online test (starts for Rs.1000), so you can do it from anywhere.
