The Educational Testing Service is, of course, the big name behind the TOEFL and other defining tests in the world of academics today. It conducts researches, and develops assessment programmes in conjunction with educational institutions and businesses.
These programmes are used in almost every country around the world to evaluate people and programmes intelligently and efficiently. Currently, its different tests are taken by millions in more than 180 countries and over 9000 locations in the world.
Of course there’s no better way to climax the countdown other than with the prep book from the test makers themselves. In it, we have:
A diagnostic test that opens up the book, and helps you analyze your strengths and weaknesses.
About 600 authentic TOEFL questions available for practice.
Explanations for every section of the text. And it also gives info on what to expect in every speaking and writing task given.
You will learn how to construct a good answer, integrating speaking, listening, and writing skills that would reflect college-level English speaking proficiency.
It comes with a CD-ROM that provides 3 authentic TOEFL iBT practice tests which, of course, will be quite identical to what you will find on test day.
Then there are 3 full-length practices with about 12 drills in all for all the sections.
##Bottom-line: you cannot go wrong with this book, however, bear it in mind that this book will not give you in-depth, from-the-scratch explanations like some others. They are the test makers and there just some things that will never happen if you catch our drift. The test still has to retain its competitiveness; else it loses its value as a tool for comparing individuals reasonably.
