As of July 26, 2023, the TOEFL iBT test taken at a test center or at home contains a more modern and concise Writing task, called “Writing for an Academic Discussion,” that replaces the Independent Writing task. All other TOEFL iBT question types will remain the same. Therefore, you can use all existing prep materials.
