Hi cmiyata,

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
score. Whether you prepare extensively or not, however, it will be
good to keep these TOEIC tips in mind.

TOEIC Tip #1
In the Listening Comprehension section of the TOEIC test, there is a
new question every 5 to 8 seconds. Do not answer these questions
slowly, or you might become confused.

TOEIC Tip #2
Although grammar is important, the TOEIC test focuses on basic English
communication. A good way to prepare for the TOEIC test is to read
English newspapers, magazines and books. It’s also helpful to speak
English with people, watch English-language television and listen to
English-language radio.

TOEIC Tip #3
In the TOEIC test, you will not lose points for answering incorrectly.
If you don't know the correct answer, or if you are running out of
time, just guess. You have nothing to lose!"

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."
