100 TOEFL Sample Words

This is a shortest TOEFL word list with 100 words, which actually cannot be used to build TOEFL vocabulary, instead, which acts as a ruler to evaluate your TOEFL vocabulary skill. Here sample has two meanings. At first, the 100 words in list are selected from official sample test papers. Namely, they are must-have words for TOEFL test takers; because we know that sample test papers are usually easier than real test papers. If you want to shoot a high mark, you have to get a higher level of vocabulary skill than these sample words. So the second meaning of sample is that these words represent a basic requirement of TOEFL vocabulary skill. The common use case of the word list is as a quick list to evaluate TOEFL test takers’ vocabulary level.
