Review

"Tactics for TOEIC(R) is light years ahead in terms of visual appeal, user friendliness and accessibility of exercises to prepare the skills." Simon Yates, corporate trainer, major multinational company, Japan "Tactics for TOEIC(R) immediately struck me as a well-structured, attractive, and easy-to-use book ... It has a good variety of activities and I was especially impressed by the "learn by doing" section as an alternative/supplement to the usual test practice exercises common in most TOEIC preparation books." Benedict Rowlett, Meiji University, Japan

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This book, approved by ETS (the company that conducts TOEIC), is a very well-organized and thorough TOEIC Strategies and Method book. But there are several major issues that make this book only "Good", not "Great".

STRUCTURE:

"Tactics" is divided into 28 Units. Each Unit focuses on a specific TOEIC strategy. For example, Unit 12 helps you build your "Gerund vs. Infinitive" skills, and Unit 18 talks about how Part 4 (Short Talks) uses numbers to confuse you and pick wrong answers. Each Unit also has a short quiz to practice those strategies.

Each Unit also has a "Language Building" section, where you can build your Business English--it uses language quizzes like crosswords and "fill-in-the-blank" questions. In the back of the book, is a "Word list and Quizzes" section, which gives definitions of all the words found in the Language Building sections.

NOTE: You can download transcripts of the quizzes/activities from Oxford University Press for free, but...this book DOES NOT INCLUDE TAPES OR CDs! You have to buy these separately!

POSITIVES:

The Strategies and Methods are very good to know--they are very similar to the techniques I teach in my class. Because each Unit has a practice quiz that focuses on that Unit's strategy, you can see how these techniques can help you. If you understand the strategies in this book, you will avoid almost all the tricks used on the TOEIC.

Each Unit has a great variety of skill-building activities to improve your understanding of English grammar, Business English, and TOEIC test questions. Because there are different kinds of activities, you have a better chance to learning and remembering the strategy/grammar/vocabulary.

The TOEIC book was in good condition.

However, this book was incomplete. There were CD's. I was unsatisfied.
