Study Guide Review
Cambridge University Press is among the leading publishers with a comprehensive TOEFL book on the market. This latest edition, published in 2014, contains access to online TOEFL practice tests.
The package offers a large variety of skill-building exercises and progress checks designed to help improve grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and test study skills. Additionally, Cambridge now offers four practice tests that are contained in the book. The book, via an access code, also provides access to online practice tests (including the tests from the book plus an additional set of three practice tests). The online tests closely simulate the TOEFL iBT’s actual computerized format that you encounter in a test center and even generate a score, both of which are great tools for test-takers. Cambridge also offers a separate listening program with a set of audio CD-ROMs.
Perhaps some of the book’s questions could be somewhat more targeted towards the actual questions encountered on the TOEFL. Nevertheless, since mastering the TOEFL above all else requires a lot practice, this guide is notable for its extensive collection of exercises, practice questions, and – above all – full-length practice tests, which do a good job simulating the actual test’s look and feel.
This is an excellent book for those looking for lots of practice and an overall level of difficulty of intermediate to high, which should be suitable for many readers.
