By S. Fujii on February 13, 2007
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."

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.
