The Official Guide to the New TOEFL iBT.

Издательство: McGraw-Hill, 2006 - 373 pages (with audio CD)

Exclusive! The only official guide to the "next generation" TOEFL--from the makers and graders of the test.

The Official TOEFL Prep Guide is the only authorized guide to the all-new TOEFL scheduled to be introduced in North America and Europe in Fall 2005 and elsewhere in 2006. The TOEFL is an admission criterion at virtually all English-speaking U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities for students whose first language is not English. In addition to actual TOEFL questions for practice, you will get detailed explanations of what is being tested in each section and how each section is structured, plus expert tips on how to ace every speaking and writing task. You will learn how to construct a good answer and how to integrate speaking, listening, and writing skills. The companion audio CD offers an unparalleled opportunity to prepare for the listening portions of the test.
