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..

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.Getting HTML code: Send the created email to your own address. After that, open the sent email and right click to view source. It will display the HTML source of the email body with …

Book Review - The Phoenix Project

Here at Skybox Labs, we do regular lunch and learn session where a fellow colleague present on topics ranging from clean code, continuous integration, game development, machine learning to almost any areas where there are reasonable interests.

One of the very recent lunch and learn series that I have attended was focusing on DevOps which got me interested to learn more about the topic. I was looking for recommended books and the lead presenter highly recommended that I start with 'The Phoenix Project' by Gene Kim

Being inspired by the stellar reviews in Amazon, I have decided to get a copy and read it over the weekend.
A fantastic book that contains a wealth of information and delivers it in an intelligent and interesting way; a story. The book successfully captures the events and struggles of most people who work in IT Operations and gives a very good explanation on why these problems exist, and how you can solve them. It portrays a very effective way of thinking in applying …

Persian Music - Homayoon - Nemitonam English lyrics

I love this song. I have requested one of my Persian friend to translate it for me and she did really nice job.. I am sure you will love it..
"

"The person who was the only person I had,
was the only refuge of my lonely heart,
Left me alone and went from my side
I am restless form the pain of her separation

I thought she stays with me
sings love song for me
I thought she understand my words
I didn’t know she’s unkind

Though gone, but still
I am full of her love
Her thought is always with me
Wherever I go, she is in front of my eyes, in front of my eyes
I want to stand out
find a way to reduce my pain of her separation
But it is not possible, There is no way
I cannot bear
I cannot bear

The person who was the only person I had,
was the only refuge of my lonely heart,
Left me alone and went from my side
I am restless form the pain of her separation

I thought she stays with me
sings love song for me
I thought she understand my words
I didn’t know she’s unkind

Though gone, but still
