TOEFL Preparation - Listening

Last week I summarized how to prepare for TOEFL Reading based on our high scored students' feedback. This week I am focusing on TOEFL Listening. It is really important in TOEFL since part of Writing and Speaking section also involve listening. It's crucial to take good notes and practice listening. Then how can we get high score? How can we effectively prepare for TOEFL Listening? How can we increase our score dramatically and fast? Here I summarized the best methods from students with perfect TOEFL Listening scores. Follow the methods and you will succeed! 
Student with perfect TOEFL Listening score: Preparation and materials
Preparation Time: At least one month with at least 3 hours per day. During the two weeks before test day, start at the test time, which is about 11:00 am.
Materials that you MUST use: TPO (adjust the speed to 1.5 times) + Scientific American (similar topics with TOEFL, but faster speed, suitable for practice).
Materials that you may use: Listening vocabulary, TOEFL mock tests
Student with perfect TOEFL Listening score: Note taking
1. Develop a system of abbreviation for your note, such as "S" for "students", "=" for "same/ similar/ equal to".
2. Note is only complementary to your understanding and memory, so you need to UNDERSTAND before you write.
3. Fold your A4 paper in half so that you have a line in the middle. It allows you to find your note faster and easier with shorter lines. 
4. Focus on the main topic and main idea.
Encouragement from student with perfect TOEFL Listening score
There is no shortcut for Listening. However, you will achieve a giant progress after one month efforts! Take good notes. Use 1.5 times speed listening materials to practice. It might be hard at the beginning, but you will feel insanely easy after a while when you look back at the normal one!
