The best TOEFL prep book I ever seen! Feb 14, 2006
Lingua TOEFL is the most complete and well written TOEFL book in the market. Fair price, world class product. Don't worry this book was not written in the US. This has been carefully written and has better English than some other books written by "native" speakers.
Included CD is also great. It has a test exam that is pretty similar to the real one. Just be warned: the testing center can be very noisy, no matter you use that big and uncomfortable earphones! In my case, I was among several GMAT test takers, and they have to write their essays in the first part of the exams, just when you're dealing with the Listening part. All the typing can be disturbing. What I recommend is that you take the exam in the CD with some background noises to stress your listening capabilities.
All the sections have full explanations. One interesting area is the Written Essays. It includes examples for almost all the possible requests in the real exam.
If you want one book to cover all the sections for self study, or as reinforcement for an instructor-led course (my case), this is your best option. Don't waste money on many books. This is THE ONE!
P.S. They include some other services in their website www.linguatoefl.com that can be useful, like additional exams and real scoring for the essays (extra cost). Not used, but you can try them!
Super TOEFL Help! May 14, 2004
This book is a wonderful tool for anyone studying for the TOEFL. Teachers of English as a Second Language can also use this as a resource in planning lessons when helping students prepare for the test.
The CD-ROM is especially helpful since so many students are taking the CBT these days. The hints and tips included in the book will give students guidance and help them feel more at ease when they encounter the real test. The language in the book is not too complicated, but is not condescending either. The writers really seem to understand their readers.
All of the information in the book, along with studying, can help students achieve better scores on their TOEFLs. The realistic practice guides and practical suggestions are the best available.
Much thought has gone into the organization and content of this study guide, and students will find it most helpful! This book is highly recommended!

Very Helpful Book Jun 26, 2003
I am a student from Nagoya, Japan. I was shopping for a good TOEFL book and my friend recommended this book to me. Like he said, I also found this book very helpful. This book had everything - grammar, listening, reading, etc. It has study sections as well as practice test sections. I liked the book's CD-ROM. It was very easy to use and very realistic. When I went to take the actual TOEFL test, I wasn't worried about using the computer so much because I had already practiced with this CD-ROM. This is a very nice book. It is very much worth your money. I recommend this book to all students who are studying English. Thank you.

This book is actually "The Super Guide". It has everything you need to prepare for the TOEFL test. The grammar tips are clear and easy to understand. Reading and Listening sections are both very realistic. I think this book is more like the actual test than any other TOEFL prep books. I especially enjoyed the helpful tips on how to score high on the test. My English actually improved after studying this book. I strongly recommened it to everybody who's studying for the TOEFL.
