Speaking :
This is real tough is you don't practice much
2+4 Speaking tasks
You have to speak within 45-60 seconds for each task like
one I can recall from my test : Most memorable event in my
life(in 45 seconds)
Tips: Don't worry about time if you practice you would
wonder that you have some time left after you finish out of
this 45 seconds!!!
Practice with your friends as much as you can and do speak
on any sort of topic. Its a good idea that when you speak,
speak in english when you are intended to take the TOEFL
Before you speak listen a lot. It would help you to capture
the style of speaking. For example, Instead of "I will eat
rice" use "I will have rice"

Writing :
2 Writing Task [20+30 minutues]
Tips: Read a lot before you write to learn the writing style

Preparation Materials:

Official Guide for TOEFL iBT(ETS)

Note: TOEFL is not that hard and time consuming exam like GRE/GMAT.
I hope with a devoted practice of two weeks you can do well. I did it
with 4 days after my GRE Exam and scored 89.
