    Abstract: This study compares the language learner and test-taking strategies used by Chinesespeaking
    graduate students when confronted with familiar versus unfamiliar topics in an
    English multiple-choice format reading comprehension test. Thirty-six participants at a
    large mid-western university performed three tasks: A content knowledge vocabulary
    assessment, two practice reading comprehension passages from the Test of English as a
    Foreign Language (TOEFL) internet-based test (iBT), and a post task interview. Two
    stages of analysis, qualitative and quantitative, were undertaken in this study. From the
    qualitative results, six broad categories of strategies emerged. For the quantitative
    analysis, ANOVA with repeated measures was completed, and the results showed that the
    types of test-taking strategies adopted by Chinese-speaking students remained similar
    when they read passages with familiar versus unfamiliar topics. Discussions and
    implications related to test-taking and reading pedagogy are provided in the conclusion.
