Barron's Writing for the TOEFL iBT


Updated to reflect the most recent TOEFL iBT exam, this manual prepares students to succeed on the Test of English as a Foreign LanguageÂ's Independent Task, the all-important essay question, and on the Integrated Task, which combines reading, listening, and writing skills. The author presents a simple three-step program to help students write like a native speaker of English. His coaching entails getting ideas, organizing details, and developing the topic into clear, grammatical written English. He also provides exercises in proof reading and editing to transform the writing for both Tasks into a finished piece. Over 160 model essays and model integrated tasks are included for students to read and analyze. Lectures typical of those presented on actual tests are contained on an audio CD enclosed with the book. Previous editions of this manual were titled How to Prepare for the TOEFL Essay.
