I encourage you to practice with a friend and present your response to him/her. Also in the preparation time that you consider for yourself try to practice on writing an outline for your answer; it can help you omit your long pauses when you speak.

"IExpert English" is a very good app to get prepared for TOEFL exams, especially for the writing parts...
You'll find it on itunes store and there is a free version of it as well, for those who don't want to spend the money. Haven't tried that one, but the normal version is great:)
good luck with learning!

Re: Best TOEFL Preparation Books Resources - Reviews & Comments [#permalink]
Hi guys,

a slightly different question. I have another 5 days until Saturday (11th) to prepare myself for my TOEFL test. I have had a 3 months weekend preparation class, and am currently working on Speaking (being within time limitations) and Writing, based on some YouTube videos.

I still have some exams to do - from Cambridge, Barrons, Kaplan, Thomson and Longman, and wanted to hear your opinion and suggestion which one to take until Saturday. I've heard that the first three (Cam, Bar and Kap) should be closest to the real TOEFL, but would be happy to hear your opinion as well.

Goal: Will be very happy to achieve something around 110 and above.

Thanks in advance! Kudos guaranteed.

Regards,

In my experience, endorsed by different instructors, are perhaps these books really helpful for a strong preparation. In particular, the second one ;)

Hello :)

I have the third edition of the ETS OG (without cd) and I'm trying to figure out whether it would be enough to get a descent score (above 110). What do you think?

Where can I get free online tests?

Thanks!
