If you search online for practice TOEIC tests, you will find some example questions, but it is dificult to find full tests for free. ETS, the organisation who run TOEIC, have a test with some sample questions from each section here. You can use this to get an idea of his strengths and weaknesses in diferent parts of the test.
What you need though, I think, is a full practice test to use as a diagnostic, to see his score now and how far he has to go. If you’re going to be preparing him for the test, you might want to consider investing in a TOEIC preparation textbook. Most of these come with two or more full practice tests, and include preparation exercies and strategies for the different sections.
It would be something you could use again with future TOEIC students, and would help to give structure to the preparation course that you give him. I don’t know if you work for yourself or for a school – if for a school, it might be something they are willing to invest in?
Have a look at this Amazon search for TOEIC preparation books, and you’ll see that there are quite a few to choose from, many of them not too expensive.
They have a very good system for finding out your level with a full compliment of training exercises covering the whole TOEIC. In fact, not only can you see your estimated level, but also your level per question type, your progress in training and your improvement.
I think this website is useful for private people and schools offering TOEIC preparation as it can easily be used in class as well as at home.
Have a read of the member comments, a very satisfied group of people.
