TOEFL TIPS

Recently i have appeared for TOEFL ibt exam. I want to share my experience and some tips to those who are willing to appear for TOEFL.

I think most of us will agree that speaking is the toughest section in ibt, if you do well in Speaking then your score will certainly be 100+. To improve speaking i suggest to follow these steps which i really found very helpful...
1.Practice Speaking with some common topic for question 1 and 2 , like your childhood memory, most favorite person, your favorite place to visit..etc I have attached a pdf where you will find several such topic.. practice those first.

2.Record and listen to your speaking again and again try to improve it. Speak slowly but cohorently.

3.(**Most important) install Skype and add some friends who will also appear for TOEFL and talk with them at least 1hr a day.(You will find several person and their skype id who will also appear for toefl in various blog just google TOEFL speaking partner and visit some of them.) .
It will greatly increase your fluency. I personally found it very helpful.

4.Download some video from Youtube like steve ford tips on TOEFL speaking and some other stuff like jason renshaw. It will give you inspiration.


For Listening try to take notes specially about the types, characteristic.. it will improve your score.

For reading try to read some article everyday and try to read it faster.. increase your vocabulary.

For writing try to resolve grammatical mistakes and please revise your essay after it is completed..


And best of all try to relax on exam room. More you are relax more it will help you to give an excellent exam..

This is important to remember while you are browsing IELTS or TOEFL preparation course, if you are planning on applying for citizenship or collage and intend to use your results as an entry requirement.

Citizenship requirements are changing with time as a result of the Australian government becoming increasingly corrupt. Therefore, if you want to sit for the Australian citizenship test, you must prep for it thoroughly. The practices we provide in our training on Australian citizenship test practice questions will allow you to handle the tests on citizenship effectively.

Creating dynamic email templates using C# and Office Outlook

It is quite common for many applications to send automated email notifications. Couple of months ago, I have worked on improving our old email template format to make it more user friendly . In this tutorial I will walk you though regarding how I took advantage of Microsoft Outlook to quickly generate custom email template and later using the html template for building an automated custom email application using C#. Steps: Creating Templates: Using the rich text editor support  in Outlook create a nicely formatted email. Use placeholder text for the values you like to change dynamically based on your task completion status. To keep this tutorial simple, I have created a  simple table with placeholder text inside the third bracket  [place holder text]. However, you can use anything supported by outlook editor. Figure: Email Template Getting HTML code: Send the created email to your own address. After that, open the sent email and right click to view source . It

Why using XOR might not be a good hash code implementation?

Using XOR for computing hash codes works great for most of the cases specially when order of computation does not matter. It also has the following benefits: XOR has the best bit shuffling properties of all bit-operations and provides better distributions of hash values. It is a quick single cycle operation in most computer  Order of computation does not matter. i.e. a^b = b^a However, if ordering of elements matter then it is often not a good choice. Example For simplicity consider you have a class with two string properties named Prop1 and Prop2  and your GetHashCode returns the xor of their hash code. It will work fine for most of the cases except cases where same values are assigned to different properties. It will generate same hash-code i.e. collision in that case as can be seen in the below example . However, using the modified approach as recommenced by Joshua Bloch's in Effective Java which uses prime multiplication and hash chaining provides more unif

SQL Performance improvement for User defined table types

Recently, I have dealt with an interesting performance issue with one of my SQL query and thought I will share the experience here. Context: We had a legacy stored procedure responsible for saving large amount of excel row data to our database tables. It was using   User Defined Table Types as one of the parameter to get a list of row data from excel. However, the stored procedure was taking very long time to save the large data set. Root Cause: After quite a bit of investigation using execution plan in SSMS, I was able to narrow down the performance issue to the following: Joining with User defined table type was taking >90 percent of the time A custom hash function which has been used multiple times as a join criteria was also quite expensive to compute. After doing additional research using stack overflow , I was able to figure out that the primary reason for the poor performance doing a  JOIN on Table Valued parameters is that : it does not keep statistics and a
