    This book is excelent for TOEFL test preparation, but I advise Amazon to recommend people to buy also the CD with the listening section, since it is sold separately. The audio from the CD-ROM included is different from that on the audio program.

    The assignment are interesting, but the answer keys part needs revising since you don't provide your rationale for the answers choices you picked up. And the learning happens at that level, I mean in explaining WHY you choose a particular answer you are helping the student learn all the grammar points in the sentence. So I sincerely think there is no learning in the book, it is very mechanical, providing only the letter answers.

    Also, the book is not that organized, there are many details that should be taken out. It is confusing and the CD listening section is not organized either.It should be organized according to the listening section in the book

    This book could be the best reffernce for TOEFL (paper test), if the Audio CDs were accompanied. However, I am so satisfied with it because it contains all the test matterials with detailed explanation.

    This book is very helpful, but the CD doesn't provide you with the listening section. You will have to either cut or photograph the conversation from the back and have someone to read it for you. My teacher and her husband recorded the conversation for me, which is very helpful too! The recorded conversations is sold separately, and it is not cheap, so I didn't buy it. Plus, it more difficult to find it than to find two people to record it.
    Other than the missing conversation, this book does teach you to ace TOEFL'''''''''''s many tips on how you should approach a question.

    After all, I would recommend this book!

    To my amazment, the CD which contains listening practices in the main text of the book is not provided with the book. A CD accompanies the book but it contains practices different from those included in the book. You should buy the CDs which include the listening practices in the book separately. Disappointing;

    What's in the CD-ROM is a software which includes some additional exercises, but not the listening materials. Once you need to do the listening exercises in this book, you have to buy it from else where. What's more I don't appreciate is the software in this CD-ROM runs so slow, sometimes I had to move the software window in order to letting it show the next page, which drove me crazy!!
    However, it is a good book so far for me to prepare the toefl paper test. The skills are listed clearly, so you can find out where your problems are quickly.
    Anyway, It's a good book though.
