First, let me say that the title of this book really bothers me. The TOEFL cannot be “cracked.” You can prepare for it, yes, but you cannot learn. iBT. Lougheed Lin.

Cracking the TOEFL iBT with Audio CD. online pdf format Cracking the TOEFL iBT with Audio CD, Edition (College Test Preparation), ^^pdf download Cracking the TOEFL iBT.
This is a mostly a test of your English experience. No notes for slide. Visibility Others can see my Clipboard. D- Quality of explanations: You just clipped your first slide!
There are two pages of grammar, with no exercises. The author is focused on general test-taking strategies and seems not to know about how the TOEFL is different. For example, the book focuses heavily on process of elimination. If you understand the reading or recording, then the correct answer will be the only one that gives the same information.
They assume information, make extreme statements, or draw connections between unrelated facts. The focus of a sentence is wrong, for instance, or the direction of an action is reversed.
Trying not to read the passage will simply confuse you. Skipping any information is a bad idea.
The big picture structures of the texts, lectures, and conversations will often be a little bit unclear, because the topic changes a bit. Interestingly, the practice passages and recordings are pretty similar to the structures of real TOEFL material. On the same note, the writing guide directs you to an overly simple essay. It seems like the author had no idea about how important timing is.
Besides the good skill-building exercises, this book has one other strong point: The explanations of ideas and answers are well written.
And there are explanations for everything in the book—no answers standing by themselves without details. The writing sections have sample essays very important!
What should be a 5, the highest grade, might be graded as a 4. And worse, what should be a 3 is graded as a 1. Although structure and message are important for the TOEFL, language use—correct grammar and high-level vocabulary—is more important. And what about the speaking tasks?
Sadly, there are no speaking samples. Authenticity of practice material: D- Quality of explanations: B- Skill building material: Good article Lucas! And definitely: Toefl is nt some gmat or usmle exam to study huge books. Its a simple book and good enough for such an exam. Thanks for the input, Suresh! There will always be some supporters of certain books, certainly. You did very well on your TOEFL, and it sounds like you found the test fairly easy, which is awesome for you.
For some, it is just as intimidating as the GMAT, in some ways.
For students who need a lot of help, this book will not be very effective. In fact, I would say that even for students who need very little help, like you, this is not the best option. It is better to have more practice material of higher quality.
Again, I really appreciate hearing your experience! Hi lucas. I got 71 point my previous toefl. I need to get atleast.
What book is good to boost my score. Recommend 2 book atlest pls???
