Format: Paperback
This book provides TOEFL iBT skills which you exactly need to get.

Originally, I liked to use this series of books, "North Star," which offer basic academic skills.

I took TOEFL iBT some times, so I can point out what the advantages this book has. (It is made by not only Longman but also ETS, so it is really helpful!)

1) it provides real format of Reading section

2) step by step improving your academic skills

Though there are really good points, I might say that this series of book are not helpful when you use individually.

I think this book becomes helpful when school(classes) use it.

I gave 5 stars, but if you want to study yourself, I will recommend Delta's or CompassMedia's "mastering skills of TOEFL iBT."

Buyer beware, this book does not include the CDs and to be a full training tool, it needs the audio. It's not the fault of the shipper, since they're shipping exactly what's posted, but more the fault of the publisher for not deciding to include the CDs at an affordable price. I teach English in a third world country and - though I love the NorthStar series, having bought other books that included the audio - find that to get the audio in addition to the book, the price is appalling. I'm not really sure who their target audience was in pricing these items, except for maybe Russian oligarchs.

By Danny Hackin on February 27, 2015
Format: Paperback
This book is another great book for any ESL student who’s just begun or any new teacher who needs some lessons for their classes. This book is different than others because it tests students listening skills just as much as it tests a students written and oral skills. Lessons range from sports to storytelling, advertisement, fashion and other lesson plans. After a while students need first hand experience on how words sound along with their placement. There needs to be a point where students hear how the language actually sounds while also being put in positions where they need to speak the language. It’s taken years but I can finally say that I’m fluent in Spanish. I became fluent not just by reading books and going to classes but by being in Spanish speaking countries and talking to other Spanish speakers. This book is a step forward for those learning English to take risks and discover a new way to learn the language.

By Martin Theis on October 27, 2007
Format: Paperback
I think this book is good when it comes to improving your skills.
The difficulty is average and everybody who had learned english in school before should be abled to learn and improve.
I think it is really helpful that CD`s are added and that you can check the answers in the back.
If you try to learn the schemes and structure of notes and how to create a good outline it will make it easier for you to succeed in the actual TOEFL test. I bought this book, because it was a requirement for my college lesson but I really think it is possible to do it on your own.
As I said, if you have at least the knowledge about grammar and average voc. skills.
Somebody who corrects the written parts would help a lot.
4 Stars because I didn't learn much more. But I still improved in my writing technique und my classmates learned a lot.

This book contains a lot of useful information. Each section is different topic. The variety of accent, speed, content supports listening skill in outstanding way, forces student to listen and hence, enhances skill perfectly. Moreover, writing section is not only about standard essay but also contrast...This book is absolute must have for international student to prepare for college or ENG101.
