This book is the ultimate authority for anything you want to know about the format of the sections and questions, time limits, the way the test software works, what to expect on test day, and so on. The ones for the first three tests are copied from the TOEFL OG, and the explanations for the fourth exam are similar to the first three.
The goal of the former involves improving a student's knowledge of English, and the latter improving test scores. Be sure to pace yourself so that you have time to answer all the questions. These listening items are longer, and test-takers are not permitted to take any notes while they listen.Granted, there are flaws aplenty, here. That means that, if you like the practice questions, you know where to find more just like them. The explanations and exercises are basically the same as in the previous editions of the book. So this third place book is quite good. This is accurate to the newest versions of the real test, and makes for better prep than older TOEFL materials. Part B is short, compared to Part A. The question types explained in Part A are those on dialogues that involve sound confusion, homonyms, idioms, and words with double meanings. And these samples, along with their scorer commentary, are merely copies of Level 3 samples from the previous guide. Audio File. Written by Bruce Rogers, an internationally recognized authority on English language standardized test preparation This complete text provides test-taking strategies at the beginning of each section, extensive practice with all question types found on the TOEFL iBT, a separate section on essay writing, additional exercises addressing the most common errors made on the TOEFL test, and two full practice tests. There are many skills involved in the TOEFL that are not really discussed in the official material, but are extremely important if you need a large score improvement. Speaking Section In the Speaking section, only item 1 of the 4 tasks may have accented speech.
Nine different kinds of items in the reading section are grouped in lessons, six in all. Express an opinion on a familiar topic; speak based on reading and listening tasks. Although Rogers has provided models for process writing, the "Guide" does not seem very helpful.
Below are examples similar to what you might hear in the Speaking and Listening sections.
The reading and listening comprehension activities help students think about the most important points in a given passage or audio track.
