DISCLAIMER: I gave this review by considering many students’ opinions and views, not solely mine. I gathered all those lines at one place.
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is one of the two major English-language tests in the world, IELTS being the other. It is a standardized test to measure the English language ability of non-native speakers wishing to join English-speaking universities. There are many TOEFL guides in the market; Well, I’ll analyze two important of those.
ETS Official Guide to the TOEFL test: RECOMMENDED
If you are looking for official practice, this is the place and only book which is from ETS.
What’s GOOD: It has the most accurate-to-the-test practice questions. Well, that’s the main attraction. There are three full practice tests, which is also cool. And the authors included a good amount of reading samples-there are five additional passages outside of the practice tests. The writing is clear and concrete. The included CD is a great resource in which you can find tests similar to the real test. It’s great that some of the more difficult vocabulary of the book is defined in footnotes.
What’s BAD: The huge flaw in this book is that there are no skill-building exercises in the book, such as brainstorming practice, identifying grammar errors or any of the many other helpful exercises which you find in other books. Also, it provides very little speaking practice. The three tests which you find in the CD are the same that are on book’s paper. Also, there are no explanations for wrong answers, only brief descriptions of why the correct answers are right.
Final verdict: The Official Guide to the TOEFL test is the best source for realistic practice tests. It is helpful for students who are unfamiliar with the test but do not expect to need a lot of preparation. If you already know the test, and you need to build your English skills and test-taking skills, this book is only helpful for the practice tests.
Kaplan TOEFL iBT Premier 2014: NOT RECOMMENDED
Highly disappointing!! To say it simply, this book isn’t for students.
What’s GOOD: The author gives realistic descriptions and advice, which is good. Context can help sometimes, but that’s not the main point. Many books don’t recognize that, but Kaplan’s’ does. It says; focus on listening, not writing. I was happy to see that. So, the only good part of the book is that, most of the strategy given is sensible and helpful.
What’s BAD: Almost everything, I say. There are many bad things about the book, but I’ll tell few. Its cover says there are 4 practice tests. But unless you go online, you can’t find those in the book. So if you don’t have internet access, you get zero practice tests.
And once you create an account on the Kaplan website to get your four practice tests, there’s only one, actually. You pay for four and they give you one, that too with full of mistakes. Also, there is no skill-building practice in the middle. The language is much advanced and not friendly. And the recordings are also poorly made.
Final Verdict: I would never recommend this book to a student. If you’re a new TOEFL teacher, there are some good points that you should know for guiding them to students. But for now, that’s it. When Kaplan fixes their online material, it might be better, but right now this book is not at all a good idea to buy.
