Great bookJan 10, 2011
By Hatem Mahmoud
This book was very helpful:
1. Good tricks and great samples with explanation
2. Comes with 2 audio CDs which are very useful for listening
3. Comes with a CD with 4 full-length practice tests similar to the real exam. You must practice those
1. Frequent repetition of most tips and hints. Without that, the book could be smaller and easier to follow
2. The speaking section was very weak. This can be solved by adding speaking samples to the audio CDs

Great book!Jun 23, 2011
I think this is one of the best TOEFL preparation books. Official guide is a must have, but this one is a great addition. It has nice explanations, that can be repetitive sometimes and which can be skimmed through (just read the text in bold), but important part it has 4(!) practice tests, more than any other book. The software works great on my MacOSX. It is timed and resembles the real test. I can look through my Reading and Listening results, and they give explicit explanations why other choices are incorrect. I like Speaking section a lot. I can compare my response with samples of high, mid or low level responses for each question. I liked this part the most, you can hear high level responses from non native speakers. Also, Writing section gives samples for each question. Plus, it has lots of practice tests in the book itself and 2 additional CDs with audio files to them. I think this Kaplan did a great job with this book.

Great book, efficient practice testsFeb 22, 2011
I've used this book as my only resource in preparing for TOEFL. Practice tests are especially helpful. They let you get a real feel for the actual test. The book also covers explanation and practice tests for each of TOEFL's four sections.
I especially found the section on speaking very helpful. There is a list of topics you could probably get on the first two questions of speaking.

Dear Mac Users, Don't Buy This Product!Jun 17, 2013
If you are using a Mac with latest OSX, do not buy this book from 2009 and use its CDs to study because your MacBook Pro, iMac, or Mac Air will say something like, "You can't open the application Internet based TOEFL because PowerPC applications are no longer supported." I'm not gonna waste my time clicking on App Store and spend money on apps from Apple (not knowing whether these apps will help to open files from CDs) and figure out how to make things work, since it is clear that both frustration and anger will increase exponentially.
I do not know whether these CDs will run on a laptop with Windows 7 Vista, Windows 7 Pro, or Windows 8, but I believe some people already complained that Kaplan CDs failed to run on Vista. If you want to avoid compatibility issues, find other latest Kaplan or other brand's TOEFL books with CDs that will definitely run on your current laptops and desktops.
