When I scored 287 of 300 (99.9 percentile) on the computer based test about 5 years ago I did not prepare at all. I just made sure I had a good nights sleep, went to the test center and did the test. Afterwards I don’t see how any studies could have helped me or anyone else that knows the basics (like when to use are/is etc) in getting a better score. There is just too much to learn to be able to even cover a tiny bit of it.

5 years ago TOEFL was substantially different. Recently TOEFL CBT was transfformed into TOEFL iBT which contains one more session - speaking, which is the worst part of the new test and requires some practice.

Sure thing, you cannot learn English in 3 months - there is no preparation program capable of upgrading your score from 0 to 115 in couple of weeks. What prep materials can do is introducing the applicant in to the exam. By using prep books test taker becomes familiar with format of test questions and, especially, essays. Essays for TOEFL iBT are specific and their knowing could add couple of points to ones score - just what one need in order to successfully apply to the school that requires 104 points unstead of 100 like all other schools.

I took TOEFL in the old days too and got 300/300

If you still that score (when the test was testing areas somewhat similar to the GMAT but at a much lower level - reading and grammar), this could be an indication of work that needs to be done on the verbal side of things. My verbal ended up 42 - 96th percentile.
