TOEFL Book Reviews: The Best TOEFL Books of 2018 – 2019

The practice material in Princeton is a bit weak. First, I checked my preparation with the full test in the former, than with the full test in the latter. Is it common that the Reading Preparation has the reading section more difficult than the official guide. I see that you mention this aspect also in your article. Always trust the official materials above anything else—at least for how the practice questions are written. Good question! I think there are some similar comments on the page of all book reviews.

You can see my answer there. There are now non-American accents in the lectures, for example such as Australian. Because the changes have been so small, Cambridge is almost totally accurate. In fact, it is more accurate than some other, newer books. Hi I do not like Cambridge at all: I have many wrong answers in the reading section of the first compete test.

What should I do?????? The most important thing is to keep practicing and learn from your mistakes! Try some official material so you can get a better idea of your actual performance. Then, look carefully through those wrong answers both in Cambridge and anywhere else. Analyze why exactly a wrong answer was wrong.

Look carefully at the text, and consider how you could have gotten that question right. Hi,Lucas i have 2 weeks of time to prepare for toelf ,Im a novice person.. I have only ets official guide with me. Could you please suggest how should I prepare.

Give yourself time every day to read about the test format and then do practice questions. Your goal is to know exactly how to answer every question that you might get. This is especially true of the speaking section.

Record yourself when you do speaking practice. And from that experience, learn what is difficult for you personally, then repeat the same practice sessions, avoiding your previous mistakes. Be sure to use all of the practice material in the official guide before your test day. Do everything twice, if possible, and pay careful attention to the parts that are more difficult or you get wrong.

Learning from your mistakes is key! How should I go about my preparation and which book shall I download?

I am aiming a score above Here are some basic goals for the next ten days:. Of course, there are more goals, but these are some of the basics, and they should be achievable in ten days. Hi Lucas, Thanks for your great reviews!

Is there one best book for teachers to use and have their students download? Most of these reviews are geared more toward self-study, so some of the important information you need is missing—sorry about that! My favorite book for classroom courses is Oxford Preparation, by far.

The book of five official practice tests is best for that. I hope that helps a bit! Enjoy teaching that class. Thanks for these reviews. I need to recommend a self-study book to someone whose exam is in a month. He mostly needs to practise Speaking and Writing. Please could you clarify for me: He might not have time to do much skill-building study anyway, so if he can fully utilise the 7 practice tests WITHOUT downloading the additional 8 audio cds, then that is what I will recommend to him.

I would be eternally grateful if you could clarify this point for me. Thank you. The seven practice tests in Cambridge are all on the CD-rom that comes with the book. That includes all the audio. No other audio comes with the book. Considering that the book is mostly skill-building, that means the set of audio CDs is pretty important if you want to make full use of the book. If you plan on teaching the TOEFL with other students, you might want to invest in the set to be able to use those skill-building exercises with other students.

download the other official tests. I have two students who would like to prepare for the Toefl exam. Which book would you recommend for my students? Do you have favorite web sites you would recommend? I currently use Cambridge Interchange 4th Edition for my classes. Do you have an opinion on these books? Would you recommend a different lesson book?

Which books will work best depends largely on what type of practice your students need. The practice tests are some of the best you can download. Email us at help magoosh. For the. Did you take the paper written test or the internet based test? Which is the easiest, in your opinion?

I had the option of taking it on the 29th but from what I read on the website, it takes 2 weeks to receive the test results and my college application deadline is October 1st. Question is, do you think that 2 weeks is an adequate amount of time to study for this exam if I study every day with help from the official guide and the Cambridge prepareation book? And whether 2 weeks is enough for you depends on your starting point and target score.

The Two (almost) Identical Versions

But you can definitely make improvement and become more prepared in that time! What is the test scored out of? I saw some of the Magoosh testimonials and some of their test results were in the low s. Is that for the paper based test or the internet based test? The iBT is scored out of I have read all your book reviews. Could you please advice? Most listening, speaking, and writing exercises use the 8 audio CDs.

Still, the seven practice tests are completely usable without the audio CDs. All those tests are are completely on the CD-rom, including their audio. Official material is better. I have a question. When you are talking about the 7 full-length practice tests. See my review here: The simple truth is that computers cannot yet understand human speech well. So unless you are paying another person to grade your speaking tasks, the best option you have is grading your answers yourself, using sample responses and rubrics for guidance.

Hey, I bought the book and took my first practice test. The report card at the end shows me the scores to only the reading and listening sections, will it not show me scores for my writing and speaking sections?

I feel that most questions, especially in the reading and speaking section of Cambridge is a little too difficult apart from being poorly written. I just want to badly believe that the Cambridge material is a little harder than what I see on test day.

The speaking questions are quite intimidating. Or is the overall difficulty of the speaking section similar to the actual test?

Is this what I should expect on test day? I hope that Cambridge is just trying to prepare me for the worst and that I receive a better score than what Cambridge estimates. Here are my answers:. This can be a distraction from learning the real structure of the Speaking Tasks, and the best ways to address those specific structures on test day.

Hi Lucas, Fist of all, thanks for this detailed review. Secondly, I have this book and I already finished 5 exams and I have some questions that I need you to answer them for me please:. This is a tough question, but a fair question. We research the test very carefully and work hard to make materials that can truly prepare you for the real test.

Still, there definitely are non-Magoosh books we recommend, both from ETS and from other publishing companies.
