Book Description

From Library Journal Set up in a 'practice/test' format, this disc in preparation for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is divided into three major sections: Listening (comprehension), Structure (sentence structure and written expression), and Reading (comprehension). There are several full-length timed tests on the disc, as well as a test strategy section. Product advertising notes that it is designed for English-language instructors, ESL students, and others who want to 'enhance their language skills' in English, and the system should satisfy all three groups as the disc is extremely easy to use once loaded (the interface is clear and straightforward). However, installation is an issue here: we had to load it on three different computers to get it to run. Bottom Line: This is a very useful resource for a high-demand area of study?if you can get it installed! Major advantages over print counterparts are the automatically timed tests and ondisc spoken dialog for listening comprehension. We recommend it with reservations for public, academic, and special library circulating and reference collections.Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc. Read more
