The 5000 TOEFL vocabulary list is particularly useful when test day is coming, and you are planning to review TOEFL words in a very narrow time frame. In such a scenario, the list and its convenient and straightforward practice tools will help you prepare TOEFL vocabulary in fast paces.
Although we believe the TOEFL vocabulary list is a primary option for serious test takers, we never think one vocabulary can handle all test takers' cases. We do offer other TOEFL vocabularies on the website. If you feel this word list doesn't match your circumstance, please spend some time to get the right one.
Here we recommend three other vocabularies.
