Format:Paperback
The Official Guide to the TOEFL Test by ETS (4th edition, 2012) is perhaps the most important resource to start with for any TOEFL candidate. The company that makes the test provides their official guide to it, so all other preparation books are secondary. As a TOEFL teacher, I personally prefer the general approach and organized content of Longman, Bruce Rogers, or Cambridge preparation courses, however, the Official Guide from ETS remains the original source of information about the TOEFL, so it can not be overlooked.

YES, it is flawed with a poor explanation of the Listening Section and it's question types, with examples that do not always match the skill being introduced, as well as no audio files to accompany sample listening transcripts (pp.127-140). And YES, they've padded the fourth edition with a "Writer's Handbook for English Language Learners" (pp.575-635) and removed the very interesting statistical information about TOEFL score averages around the world, the kind of information that only ETS could provide (previously found in the third edition). And YES, the strategies and tips are somewhat limited, as are the number of sample questions provided with each question type...

BUT, it is the Official Guide from the TOEFL people, offering sample answers for speaking and writing tasks, scored according to the official rubrics, with explanations of how they were scored, directly from the people who set up the rubrics and know them best (priceless).

4.0 out of 5 stars You will be ready... 9 Dec. 2012
By Iveta
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was satisfied with a structure of the book when talking about the four main passages (reading, listening, speaking, writing) and the 3 tests. However, I would recommend the passages be more explanational in order to get better advise. At the end of the day, however, it helped me to prepare properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does the job 29 Oct. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for one of my students and she finds it very helpful. The CD-Rom is easy to install and use. The reading texts are repeated paragraph by paragraph in the book to simulate the test format.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Material, Bad CD-ROM 14 Mar. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
CD-ROM doesn't really work for the speaking section, so you have to use the audio on its own.

The material is quite good. Better for practice than for instruction.
