In addition to tips and suggestions, I found several online sites
where practice questions (and answers) are available for free.
On the day of the test:
1. Arrive at the testing site at the assigned time. Check-in
procedures take time. If you arrive late, you may not be admitted to
the test, and you will forfeit your test fees.
2. Bring photobearing identification.

"The TOEIC test requires a lot of preparation. Generally speaking, the
amount of preparation you put into it will be reflected in your TOEIC

good to keep these TOEIC tips in mind.

Some tips on preparing to take the test
"The TOEIC is a test of your proficiency in English. The only way to
improve your English ability is to practice. Take English classes and
try to immerse yourself in an English-speaking environment. Speak
English outside of class, especially with native speakers. Read
newspapers and magazines in English and watch television or listen to
the radio. Avoid using your native language. Soon you will be
thinking (and even dreaming!) in English.
If you're not sure about an answer on the TOEIC test, you should
guess. There is no penalty for guessing the wrong answer. Eliminate
answers you know to be wrong and then guess between the answers you
think may be correct."
