2 weeks left I bought barrons 13th edition toefl ibt book, but it is very very hard, I have a hard time to understand in listening,
and another issue is that its essay writing method is different than I was learnt in kaplan's book.

in barron's, there is no essay organization like, intro, body,summary, and first, second, third...anyway reading and listening also different
I mean, I can hardly find the opposing ideas or support ideas in the lecture, it is not obivious, I mean, in the lecture , professor does not objects
or refuses directly. so essay examples are just one big paragraph. because there is no certain 3 opposite ideas which is contradict in reading part.

if it is so, no way to get 100, and just 2 weeks left : ((((((

I have the book too. true is hard but in my opinion is one of the best books

In particular, the software that simulate the exam is really good and well done.

However take a look at my post as announcement with the best links to study for toefl ibt
