Though the book is based on teaching the format of TOEFL iBT and not English language but It is successfull to do so .The 'academic skills' part is really comprehensive and usefull.The 'test review' which consist of TOEFL sections introduction is concoise & helpful enough to get you acquainted to the layout of the exam with some advices. It contains 5 tests which is enough to make you an iBT professional. Answer keys are added and are perfect.The glossary of capmus vacubulary at the end of the book is absolutely helpful while you are listening to a conversation which involves campus matters during listening section.
I tutor English as a second language, and I guided two of my students through this book in preparation for the TOEFL exam. Both students , who are young teenagers, have amazed me with high scores, and they report that the practice tests on this CD-ROM are very similar to the ones on the TOEFL exam. This book really helps students develop the skills they need. My students learned note-taking skills, summarizing, paraphrasing, and they were able to take 7 full length practice tests. The listening sections include lecturers who have a variety of accents, so it was very similar to the actual TOEFL exam.
I ordered a TOEFL IBT Barron's book with CD_ROM and payed an extra money for faster shipping. I checked my item shipping status and never see anything. It's always say that the item is shipped never know where it is now. I contacted the seller like 4 times and never bother to even send one response to my inquiries. Well, I wanted to check the status of my shippment just like any other place when you buy online, you are given the option to check your item shipping status, so I emailed him trying to get the shippment ID and the company whom he shipped my item through and to know where my item had reached and never known where is it. It took the seller 4 days to deliver it to me , where I want to say that the shipping period was longer than the minimum number of days since I payed more for super fast shipping, but still got it after the 3 days minimum period but within the unreasonable range . If you want to buy from this seller, you need to make sure that the time is money and if you need it immediately or over night shipping, there is no way this seller is your bet ! To be fair enough , the item was received just like how it described though.
