Synopses & Reviews
The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is an internet-based test, or iBT, and this updated edition of Barron's TOEFL manual simulates the test's internet-based format. The manual presents seven full-length model TOEFL iBT tests with explanations or examples for all questions, including sample essays and speaking responses. Author Pamela Sharpe also gives test-takers a general orientation to the TOEFL iBT and follows with a review of academic skills, which include note taking, paraphrasing, summarizing, and synthesizing. A review of language skills covers listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English. The enclosed CD-ROM presents the seven on-screen TOEFL iBT exams in the book plus a bonus iBT exam, all eight of which simulate actual test conditions and provide automatic scoring.
