From the Back Cover

Skills -- Strategies -- Confidence. This book/CD-ROM package gives students all the tools they need to succeed on the TOEFL® paper-based test. Providing both a comprehensive language skills course and a wealth of practice for all sections of the paper test, the Longman Preparation Course is appropriate for courses in TOEFL® test preparation or as a supplement to more general ESL courses.


In the Student Book:

 

  • Complete language skills instruction for skills tested on both the TOEFL® paper test and the Test of Written English.
  • Longer reading passages that reflect the latest testing format. Diagnostic pre-tests and evaluation post-tests for each section that allow students to identify their strengths and weaknesses.
  • Practice exercises for each of the language skills that maximize understanding and retention.
  • Five complete Practice Tests that familiarize students with the actual test format and timing.
  •  

    In the CD-ROM:

    • An additional 1,450 test questions in both practice sections and three more simulated tests.
    • Pop-up explanations to enhance understanding.
    • Easy-to-use scoring and record keeping to monitor progress.

    A separate audio program -- available on your choice of cassettes or CDs -- includes the complete materials from the Listening Comprehension section and Complete Tests in the text.

    This is a great book for the paper-based TOEFL test.
    Shawn
    The book is good and useful, but it is not simulalating the real test especially especially the listening section.
    Sameh
    A CD accompanies the book but it contains practices different from those included in the book.

    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.

    It's great that it has 5 practice tests, but very disappointed that the CD included does not have the Listening portion for the practice tests!!

    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!

    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.
