Welcome to Michael Buckhoff’s TOEFL iBT Vocabulary List. After many years of teaching students how to prepare for the TOEFL iBT Exam, Michael noticed he was seeing the same words over and over again. He began to make a list of these words and did not find a repetition until he reached 1,700 total words. There are 1,700 words in this list divided into two categories.

You cannot expect to succeed on assignments if you do not
understand the directions. The words fall into several categories,
which are not identified on this sheet: nouns (e.g., What you read
or create); verbs (e.g., What the assignment asks you to do);
Invite you to consult the document content "Listening practice through dictation 4 - Word list" for more documents serving the academic needs of English vocabulary. Content document you referred to the system vocabulary list, hope this is useful references for you.
