The Official Guide to the TOEFL Test is one of the most reliable TOEFL prep books out there. Including real practice questions and explanations for each section. Are you looking for a great TOEFL book? I hope so! A nice book can be your best friend when you are studying for the TOEFL. There are a few good reasons. After reading all the books, GlobalExam made a top 5 books to train for TOEFL IBT in order to help you choose which one to download.

In contrast, the first mock exams from the Official Guide were originally released in and So this book definitely would be number one for best practice tests… But you may want to consider other parts.

We can also consider the extra practice sets at the end of each chapter in the Official Guide, for example, in third place. The Official Guide practice sets, which come with additional explanations and advice, are a fantastic extra source of supported practice testing. Still, these are the best full tests you can get. Although the CD software is imperfect in all three books. The title is a little confusing, I know.

This newer second version of Vol. The book still has the exact same practice tests as before. The only difference between Vol. Other than that, the two books have the exact same format, just different tests. So this third place book is quite good. The description of the test comes with relatively little strategy or advice.

And the four full practice tests in the back are out-of-date and imperfect. But this is still one of the best ways to get realistic practice tests for a low price, and especially to get them on the computer, like a real TOEFL iBT. This book comes more than 5 years after the last update. Has it been worth the wait? Still, some small but helpful edits have been made to the format of these first three tests. First, in the Listening section, any questions where an audio clip is replayed now appear at the very end of the question set.

This is accurate to the newest versions of the real test, and makes for better prep than older TOEFL materials.

In earlier editions of the OG, these questions were a mess! Each answer choice would reproduce the entire paragraph where you needed to insert a sentence, filling the page with needless duplication of text. These long, hard to read answer choices have been replaced simply by the number for each choice Choice 1, Choice 2, etc…. This makes the print version of the test more like the onscreen one.

The new software actually looks a bit less like the real exam, compared to the OG. Read on to learn more. The biggest change is that the DVD-Rom gives you the option to view onscreen transcripts of the audio, while you listen. Not possible on test day!

You can of course ignore the function if you want to have a more test-day-like experience. For Reading, you still get 6 passages, each with a full set of questions. Similarly, the Listening chapter in the newest TOEFL Official guide contains the same five Listening passages and question sets seen in the OG: one conversation, two lectures, and two class discussions.

And the Speaking chapter still has the same 6 tasks as before, a full Speaking section. And half of these prompts are simply copied from the 4th edition. But it is worth taking a brief look at the other features of this newer OG. The answer explanations have changed very little. The ones for the first three tests are copied from the TOEFL OG, and the explanations for the fourth exam are similar to the first three. The correct answer is always explained fairly well, while the incorrect answers get almost no explanation.

Not very helpful. It is also worth mentioning that there are now far fewer example essays for the sample tests.

These books have helpful instructions for each section of the test and also includes TOEFL practice tests so you can be ready for the actual test. I have broken down this article into two types of books: I hope that you will find each breakdown to be helpful as you prepare for this test.

They will explain in-depth of how to solve the questions effectively to guarantee a good TOEFL score. However, their TOEFL practice tests are either too difficult or too easy compared to the actual test. The practice books that I will be recommending contains only the authentic practice tests that were previously used as actual tests.

However, these books contain little to no explanation on how to solve different types of questions. I recommend downloading at least one strategy book and one practice test book.

If you have more money to spend, I recommend downloading more practice test books rather than downloading more test preparation books so you can solve more authentic practice questions and boost your score. If you download at least one test preparation book and one practice test book, you will learn strategies from the strategy book and practice your strategies on authentic practice questions.

As I stated earlier, you should download at least one test preparation book and one TOEFL practice test books to get a good score. The page strategy guide is very comprehensive. It contains many practice materials to solidify your test-taking skills. The audio CDs contains every recording for listening practice questions.

At the back of the book, there are comprehensive explanations for each question on the model tests.

This page explanation is very detailed, and you will recognize your weaknesses and strengthen them by using this book. Introduction This book begins with frequently asked questions about the test, general test-taking tips and advice, how to use this book, and study habits to prepare for TOEFL.

These are very informative for new test takers to know what to expect on the test day which will make them confident on the actual test.

Detailed breakdown of each section and specific strategies for each section This book does a wonderful job of listing every possible type of questions in each section and checklists that you should follow for each type of questions. For example, the reading section has fourteen possible types of questions such as interference, classification, and insert; the listening section has ten possible types of questions such as purpose, main idea, and connection; the speaking section has six different types of questions such as experiences, preferences, and examples; the writing section has two different types of questions which are synthesis of opposing ideas in integrated essay question and opinion in independent essay.

Not only does the book list every single possible types of questions that could appear on the test, the book gives specific detailed checklists for each possible type of questions. For example, there are about twelve items on checklists for each types of questions. Also, the book lists the point value and the frequency that a certain type of question appears on the TOEFL test.

After the strategy guide, the book enforces those strategies and checklist through many practice problems. The detailed explanation at the back is really helpful because you will know which types of questions are your weaknesses and focus on those weaknesses to strengthen them.

There is also an interactive program which includes all the campus vocabulary in this book. If you are interested in this free program, visit this site. These excellent strategies teach students to properly take notes such as dividing the paper into columns, separating content into major and minor points, noticing key words and phrases, and using abbreviations and symbols for faster note-taking. Also, the comprehensive lists of keywords, key phrases, abbreviations, and symbols are very helpful.

Paraphrasing Paraphrasing is rewriting the idea into your own words.

This skill is important in all four sections because those sections contain questions about paraphrasing. Skills such as substituting synonyms, using different grammatical structures, and using key phrases help you to improve your paraphrasing skills greatly. After the guide, it has many practice questions to reinforce this skill.Also, the comprehensive lists of keywords, key phrases, abbreviations, and symbols are very helpful.
