I found best match between the real TOEFL Test and the Cambridge Practice Tests as well as i-Courses TOEFL Practice Tests. The good news is that i-Courses also offers a free TOEFL Sample that may be used online just by registering into their web page. For the full TOEFL Tests i-Courses give a nice feedback while in Cambridge that is a drawback that you cannot receive real teacher feedback nor your essays or writings are scored.

A friend of mine has lent me Cracking the TOEFL iBT, but the 2009 edition.
Since I didn't find any mention of this book on this forum, just wanted to know, if it's a good enough book. If not, then I may have to purchase one of the others suggested in the posts above in this thread.

Thanks

I studied using "Barrons" https://www.amazon.com/Barrons-TOEFL-CD- ... 334&sr=8-1

The accompanying CD had 7 full length practice tests and was comparable to what I found in the real exam.

By the way, I got this book while I was in India and they had an Indian edition.It was quite inexpensive considering the amount of practice the CD provided. The Indian edition costed less than 400 INR ( less than 10 dollars).

Cambridge is the best book for listening. I think, the difficulty of the listening passage is as same as real Toefl. Also I got nearly same points in real Toefl

Re: Best TOEFL Preparation Books Resources - Reviews & Comments [#permalink]
I got myself a copy of the Official Guide for the new TOEFL iBT from my local library(luckily they had a copy) and the book is the second edition. If I'm not wrong, the third edition is already out. So was wondering if I would need to buy the third edition? Also, is it sufficient if I go through the official guide alone? I scored 100 last time without any practice/prep. However, I need to retake it to score around 110 now with a minimum of 26 in each section. My trest is on friday march 11. thank you

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

How is the Kaplan book for Toefl?

I heard that the book is accompanied with 4 practice tests that are representative of the real exam. However, I read online somewhere that the practice tests will not give you a score once you are done. I was wondering if anyone can confirm this? Is it cause of the speaking section? But still if the tests won't give me a score then how will I know where I stand?

Thanks!

Has anyone used Longman? I read some good reviews but also read an english teacher saying that the integrated tasks of this book are very different from the ones of the real test...
