  1. Hi, I would like to ask your opinion regarding the following, I have no idea regarding all these four but which do you suggest that I should take? This is for Arizona BON.

    • International English Language Test Service Academic Examination (IELTS) with a minimum score of 6.5 on the Overall Band Score with a minimum of 6.0 on each module. OR

    • Pearson test of English Academic Exam with a minimum score of 55 overall and a minimum score of 50 on each section. OR

    • A CGFNS Certificate

    Any tips regarding review materials, steps, etc. would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    I took the toefl and didn't like it. For toefl you'll be taking the exam in a room with a bunch of other test takers w/c could affect you when you reach the speaking part because everybody would be talking at the same time and it could get loud. I heard the Pearson is more difficult than the others but you'll be in a room taking your exam alone.
