I am a teacher who has used the CD-ROM from this course as well as the CD-ROM for the Cambridge TOEFL course, and have used the ones for Barrons and Kaplan as well. I haven't used any of the books from these four, so this review is for the CD-ROM only. By the way, it is standard practice in English as a Second Language texts, including TOEFL texts, that the audio CDs for the book must be purchased separately, and for a high price, so this is not something unique to this set.

Of the four CD-ROM TOEFL practice texts I've used (Longman, Cambridge, Barrons, and Kaplan), I like the Longman CD-ROM the best, with Cambridge as a close second. First of all, I like the CD-ROM as a TOEFL practice format to begin with because it most closely resembles the real test. So my reviewing of this comes from the assumption that this is the best way to practice.

The Longman CD-ROM has two sections, a skills section and a practice test section. The skills section has all the parts of the test, but without timing, and with helpful hints you can view when needed. This is ideal for becoming familiar with the nature of the test--what it looks like, what the questions are like, and how to navigate through the test. After you are finished answering the questions, you can check your answers, and there are explanations to help you understand why the correct answer is correct. For the writing portion of the skills section, it takes more of an instructional nature than writing practice. You are given sample essays and asked questions to identify the different parts of the essays as ways to help you understand what is required for the essays on the test.

After you have gone through the skills section, there are practice tests you can try.

Format: Paperback
When I first began teaching history and political science at Boston-area universities, I took a specific interest in helping students learn how to write better. My reason was that even though I was not grading my students' work based on their English ability, most badly needed sound advice and rules to write by. It was not enough to tell them simply to write better or pick up a copy of the Chicago Manual of Style or E.B. White's Elements of Style, both of which are fabulous guides to help improve writing. If I expected my students to write better I determined that I needed to show them directly what I meant and give them detailed feedback. Now that find myself teaching students how to pass the TOEFL iBT, I see the same problems cropping up with the materials available in preparation books.

First, I must say that the Longman Preparation Course by Deborah Philips--and the CD-based computer program, specifically--does a great job at giving the students a chance to practice and hone skills needed to score high on the TOEFL. It is generally well-written, accessible, and clear in its format and layout, thought, this reviewer finds it unfortunate that the answer key is a separate book. While the questions mirror those on the actual TOEFL written by ETS, the test writers have made some changes that negate some of the materials in this product. A few questions have changed slightly but after I teach my students the skills they need to master each question type using my own methods, I give them the Longman materials. Untimed skills sections, two complete tests, and eight mini-tests allow students the chance to practice, which is also something that certain other books do well, such as the Barron's TOEFL iBT by Pamela Sharpe.

I ordered 2013 edition of Longman preparation course for the TOEFL test as you advertised. But I received 2007 edition which is very surpriseda and upsetting. You should tell me that if you carry 2007 edition only, you ought to tell me so, then i should not purchase it. The book you sent me can be returned, if you allow me. Robert

The "Longman Preparation Course for the TOEFL iBT 2nd edition" is a very useful book for the teacher preparing students for the TOEFL exam. It takes students gradually from the early stages of their TOEFL preparation and helps them make fast progress by offering simple, practical advice that is easy to follow. It also offers a wealth of practice material for each skill as well as review exercises that help students consolidate what they 've learnt. The CD ROM offers practice which is different from that in the book and the audio CDs are an integral part of the course. In short, I recommend the book both to students and to teachers as I have enjoyed using it in the classroom and the feedback I get from my students is very positive.

I bought this for a friend, she was really happy with the contents of the course, comes well packaged, it comes with a separate folder which holds the cds, and its all wrapped in thermo plastic. Highly recommended as preparation for the Listening part of the Toefl test.
