    while prcoessing the CES in CGFNS , do i have to apply for licensure of the state i need to work in , or i should finish the prcess with CES then to start registering for the licensure and the ncles ,
  5. by   suzanne4
    I always recommend waiting until the CES is completed, as the state BON will not even look at your application until they have the CES. If they require it, they are unable to do anything with your documents until they receive that. Or at least until you know that it is in its final processing.

    If you're planing to take the TOEFL, get the TOEFL iBT exam since it already integrates all the four parts -- reading, listening, speaking and writing. I don't know about UAE or other countries, but in the Phils. the TOEFL iBT is the only exam being offered. The other TOEFL exams have been phased out.

    The ETS official guide to TOEFL iBT and Barron's TOEFL iBT book are both very useful. Based on my experience, you'll need at least a month to prepare for the exam. Practice a lot using the computer. It would be best if you can get a coach to give you feedback especially in the speaking part.

    The speaking part is the most difficult in the exam because of the time pressure. In one exercise, you'll be made to summarize a conversation, recommend a course of action, and explain why you made that recommendation--not very easy if you're not fluent in English because you only have 30 seconds to prepare your answer and 60 seconds to say everything. And that's just one exercise. The entire exam is about 4 to 5 hours, with a 10-minute break, so it's not only tiring mentally, but physically exhausting as well.
