-The design is great. I loved the author's approach on the problems students may find. I bought the CD rom version. It includes everything, but all the listening tests. -The listening tests are a must for students. -I didn't figured out, as a teacher and as a students as well, why not include ALL the listening tests.

Good Practice! LISTENING IS *NOT* ON CASSETTE, IT IS ON CD! 26 Mar. 2000
By TestMagic Inc. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
First, this book does NOT come with audiocassettes! Instead, the audio portion of the book comes on 4 CDs. So, if you do not have a CD player, you will NOT be able to listen to the Listening Practice.
This book does NOT have a computer test. Instead, it has some questions in the book that simulate the computer questions. Half of the tests are written for people who have to take the paper test, the other half are for people who have to take the computer test.
If you can only buy one book, you need a review of grammar and other sections of the test, and you want some practice tests, this book is your best choice. It has a lot of grammar explanations and lots of practice questions. So, it is a great value--the price is low, and you get a lot of questions.
However, the book is not perfect. Some of the questions are old, and you will not see those types on the TOEFL anymore. Furthermore, many of the questions are easier than the real TOEFL, especially the reading sections. Many of my students have said that the reading section is very, very hard and that they were not prepared for the real TOEFL when they took it.
In short, if you can only buy one book, this one is okay, but you really should buy official TOEFL materials so that you will be ready for the real test when you take it.

Excellent, Student Oriented 20 Dec. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
I bouth the 9th edition with 4 cds. This book is excellent, It is very organized and I loved the Plan of study. It will help you to understand how the TOEFL is structured. The excercises are not as difficult as the TOEFL exam (some friend told me) but they help you to understand the methodology of the TOEFL. It would be great to have the CD ROM and the 4 listening CDs all together in one kit, in order to practice in a "real" TOEFL environment. I tried to buy only the CD rom and I couldn't get it without buy another book. It is a shame that they do not sell only the CD Rom. Beside this I will recomend this book. If you are going to buy this book and you have a computer, I would recommend to buy the one that has the CD ROM and then buy the CDs separately. Do not make my mistake.

I was looking for a book not a tape cassete. 11 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
Today I used your search machine looking for a book and bought thinking I was buying a book, and when I received my order confirmation #104-0835139-3206048, I discovered that I bought a tape. No problem, but I bought a CD set from the same author, and I was looking for a exercise book. I'm very angry about this.
