Study Guide Review
Update: There is a newer edition available of this book.
Kaplan’s TOEFL iBT with CD-ROM is a well-rounded test preparation course. It contains language and grammar exercises and explanations, instructions on test-taking strategies, and study tips.
One of the most appealing parts of this book is its outline of the various types of questions that test-takers may encounter in each portion of the exam. For example, the book breaks down the Reading section into various questions types, such as not/except questions, vocabulary questions, drag-n-drop summary questions, etc. These question analyses are then followed by specific strategies to improve your score for each TOEFL section.
There is also plenty of practice material. The hardcopy book contains hundreds of questions while the accompanying CD-ROM features four full-length model tests that simulate the actual TOEFL iBT interface. The CD-ROM includes audio tracks to simulate the test’s listening section.
Overall, this book is one of the most complete TOEFL books available.
