LongmanDecember 30, 2016
Longman Preparation Course for the TOEFL Test: iBT Speaking provides students with a great deal of practice along with helpful explanations to benefit from. It also gives students good advice to help them succeed in the TOEFL speaking section.
Longman is known for giving a lot of material compared to other books. However, if we compare the practice tests in this book to the real TOEFL test, we find that they aren’t at the same level of difficulty.
That’s why this book is ideal for beginner and intermediate level students that need to get comfortable with the exam. Just remember that the actual exam is much more challenging. Therefore, you might want to purchase another book to follow after completing this one.
