this was a good book to get strategies on how to answer during the exam. my score improved from 86 to 110. the reading practice tests were easier than the actual test though. listening, writing, and speaking practice tests were very helpful. i liked the cracking section since i learned techniques on how to answer fast, but surely. i only have 1.5 hour to read 4 passages with minimum of 5 paragraphs plus answer 56 questions on the reading. the techniques the book taught me helped me a lot on how to be able to maximize my time. i liked how you only read parts from the paragraphs then go to the questions immediately so you will not run out of time. also, the tips it gave to answer the summary question, which are worth 2 points, were also very helpful since i found that confusing. i liked the practice tests for the listening part since they are similar to the actual test. the audio CD that comes with it will be very helpful on this part (and also with the speaking section). in the writing, i only focused on the techniques they give on how you will develop the paragraphs. then most importantly the speaking section... i focused on this more since it was my lowest on my first attempt on toefl. the only thing is that you have to time yourself, which i did.

PS (i also used the barron's practice tests (the program, not the book) for the speaking, which i find more helpful since it tries to give you a feel of the actual test and it does the timing for you. i also recommend using the speaking and writing strategies by bruce stirling. the technique it gave helped me score 28/30 for both writing and speaking.)

I was really disappointed to discover that the NEW book I just purchased had all the same texts as the book I purchased four years ago. No one should bother buying new books regardless of the advertising that says "new edition" since the publishers are just recycling the same old texts year after year.

This book has an excellent approach to prepare for the reading section; well done. Good for the listening and essay part. I did miss more examples for the speaking section for I feel it the most difficult part of the test.

After studying with TOEFL by McGrawHill nothing seems to be better. This is what is going on with Cracking the Toefl book, they want to explain things sooo much that you end up confuse.

I bought this in order to take the TOEFL, but for personal reasons I ended up taking the IELTS. So I prepared using this book and I got a 7.5 score overall. If you don't know, the highest grade on the IELTS is 9.
I've taken the TOEFL before and can tell you that the tips given here are very useful and could definetly help you improve your score on the test.

I did not use this book for a lot of preparation since I already had a good level of English, only got it to have a sense of the exam and the questions asked, so I can't tell if it has good strategies.

I use this in my tutoring, and I've found it to be very helpful. It is a self-study book, but my recommendation is to have access to a tutor nearby at some point, just to help clarify some of the answers and also to encourage with test taking tips.
