Toastmasters is a club that has goals to help members improve communication skills. I joined two years ago and have noticed that my public speaking skills have improved dramatically. The members are positive and encourage each other. Members give encouragement and positive feedback. Also, it helps to watch other speakers and learn from advanced speakers.

How I did it: I signed up for a workshop and the first thing the instructor said was "if you think you CAN'T, then just give up now". She said it is doable, you just have to put in the time to study and have CONFIDENCE. Although she did give us pointers, like what areas to study heavily, I do think that one needs to study and stop worrying so much. I also studied using a CD that uses questions from prior years' tests, read IRS Publica… Read how I did it…
I will probably buy some CD’s and books, but would like to take classes and get a tutor.
