A lot of practice. There are ten tests on CD Rom. Tests are very close to the real exam.In terms of practice it is the best book on the market. Be careful, do not forget to buy book with cassets and CD Rom. CD Rom has the tests all in the same computer format as the real test. Cassets have listening material for Listening Comprehansion part of the book. So you will need both CD Rom and cassets.
However, essay section in Cambridge Preparation for Toefl Test is certainly better.
In addition, for grammar section you may wish to buy Cliff's Toefl. Cliff's Toefl has better grammar review especially for those who are afraid of grammar in the test. After Cliff's Toefl you will more confident not only in Toefl grammar but also in English grammar as a whole. Cliff's Toefl also has 6 full lenght practice tests.
Therefore, if you want to save money just buy only CD Rom of Delat without book and cassetts for practicing and buy Cliff's Toefl for Grammar and Essay sections.

The book is very well-organized and offers a lot of practice. It is probably one of the best textbooks for TOEFL preparation.

It could have been rated 5-STARS but I rated it only 3-STARS because it should be clearly said that the AUDIO-CASSETTES are fundamental for the listening preparation and that the CD-ROM doesn't contain the same listening material. I bought the CD-ROM package and I have not audio material for the paper-based test.

This is the best CD-Rom for CBT TOEFL I ever had. It corrects and scores the test itself. It saves you lots of time in correcting the answers and calculating the scores yourself through page by page. If you are going to take CBT TOEFL test, buy this one. You can practice the tests timed or untimed. You can save the unfinished tests for later. I really highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This is the most complete up-to-date preparation book for the new TOEFL Computer Based Test, in fact, it has all the information that you need about the new questions in the CBT. I have the chance to study with Barron's, Peterson's and the Preparation Kit frome ETS, but this prep book is far away from any other I have seen, it is written for the CBT!. It has a lot of practice exercises alike the ones in the TOEFL in 54 units covering Listening, Structure, Reading and Writing. I found very helpful the diagnostic test at the beginning of the book, the 32 quizes and the charts for recording your progress, the thorough description of all the skills that are tested in the TOEFL but above all the friendly approach that makes you feel confortable studying with this book. It comes with 5 cassetes that gives the chance to practice all the type of questions that appear in the tricky Listening section. Of course it takes time, at least two months for using all the material covered in this book. It has four practice tests, but if you want more practice tests it would be recomendable to use it along with the official practice tests of ETS, specially those that comes with the POWERPREP.

Two reader reviews state the cassettes came with the book. My wife bought the Book/CD edition thinking she was buying a complete study package, where the only difference between the CD and cassette versions was the format of the audio. Surprise. What the web page does not state is the cassettes contain the audio necessary for the listening section of this book. The cassettes are sold seperately from the Book/CD package. The CD is for the CBT.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent piece of art for Toefl test! Especially 10 tests in CD are extremely well-organized and thought provoking. I highly recommend this book and CD. I got help a lot through this book. I am sure that this one is the best book for Toefl test as compared with many other books. Of course, the sound, picture quality of 10 tests is better than that of Toefl and the question level seems to be more difficult than that of Toefl especially in reading section. So if you practice toefl test only with this, you will be embarrassed because the picture and sould in the real toefl test is not that good qualitatively. Neverthless, it is helpful and excellent!

I don't really think you can expect to achieve a great score suddenly just because you have done a prep book or two like this on a test of this kind. I still believe a good way to learn English is watch movies and memorize all the lines, read as many books as possible, and have actual conversations with native speakers as much as possible.
Having said that, it is also true that you need to get used to types of questions you see on the test and by taking the test many times or practice a decent number of questions, you can get your score a little higher (sometimes way higher) than you would without any practices. In this sence, this book is excellent. The level of questions, 10 prep tests that look very similar to the actual test.
But mind you though, the audio quality of the tapes that accompany the book is way better than that of TOEFL. The audio quality of TOEFL is terrible. It's almost like 8 bit recording VS. 24 bit recording. So it's a good idea to at least lower the volume when you practice. POWEPREP is downloadable from the TOEFL website. You need to do this to experience this "wow, what a bad quality" shock before you take an actual test.
I got 220-280 on the first practice, 210-260 on the second test, I only did one prep test on this book and got a similar score. The real test turn out to be in the same range (216-275 or something, although I don't know my real score yet.) I thought the real test was so much easier than the practices you get on the book. I don't really know what I missed. But it's always a good idea to practice a little harder questions.
This book will well prepare you for the test and could possibly bring you a way better score than you would get without any preperation. To get used to the test, I highly recommend it.
