The Complete Idiot's Guide to the TOEFL provides students of English as a foreign language with a highly simplified approach to mastering the standard test of English-language proficiency for admission to undergraduate programs at more than 8,500 universities in English-speaking countries. Unlike the key competition, the book aims to cover both the paper-based test and the Internet-based test. It breaks down the reading, listening, speaking, and writing portions of the test into easily digested chapters using simple, clear prose; ample practice questions; and the proven Idiot's Guide formula that makes this book the easiest way to prepare for this important test. Text instruction will be supplemented with online podcasts for extra listening practice and two full practice tests.
