I have tried but have been unable to find any more specific info. about the exam change for elementary-intermediate. I've also tried emailing them, but the address provided on the HSK website doesn't work.

Has anyone had any better luck?

When (if :)) you get a response would you mind sharing it with the rest of us? I'm aiming to take the elementary-intermediate exam spring of '08 and am curious about the new format of the test as well.

Thanks!

I was in a test group who tried the new test last weekend. In beforehand, I was just told that I could do the HSK for free, and didn't expect it to be different from before. But it was...

I was gonna write about the differences here, but as I saw this link, I thought I could spare me the 麻烦...

Along the same lines...

Does anyone know if there are practice books out yet for the new format of the tests (intermediate and advanced) and if not when do you think that they will be forthcoming?

I don't think so. However, they are testing them at the moment and if you get in touch either with the HSK office or your local HSK testing center you might be able to wrangle your way onto one of the trial sittings. I'm doing one this Friday, will let you know what I reckon. I'm pretty sure heifeng has done a write up on the one she took.

Here's another question, how do they grade the speaking and writing parts? What do they look for?

Roddy the post by heifeng that you referred to (in case anyone else is interested) is here post #98. Definitely worth a look.

It will be interesting though to see how quickly they are able to get books in the new format out (if it does happen due to the discussion of hanban)...

Turns out I wasn't, I did a standard HSK test. If I'd known that I might not have bothered going along and if they'd told us we'd have to wait a month for the results I certainly wouldn't have bothered. Didn't do the speaking / writing.
