TOEFL iBT Book Review:
Barron's TOEFL iBT
Barron’s TOEFL iBT Internet based Test is an excellent choice for TOEFL self-study and in-class learning.
The book stands out from other TOEFL guidebooks in several ways:
It provides model pre-tests so you can identify your weaknesses.
It includes seven full-length model tests.
It devotes an entire section to the academic skills of note-taking, paraphrasing, summarizing, and synthesizing. If you feel weak in these sub-skills, you will find extensive and systematic practice here that boosts your skills.
It provides sample answers to the integrated writing tasks, which are very helpful to students who have difficulty grasping what is expected of them in this portion of the test.
It includes a useful glossary of campus vocabulary and expressions, which may appear on the test. Since the TOEFL is based on academic and campus vocabulary, studying or reviewing the list is beneficial to all students.
Barron's TOEFL iBT also includes ten audio CDs with the book itself, which make for overall value that can’t be beat.
