Prepare For the iBT With Longman

Longman recently published a program to help learners prepare for the new computer-based TOEFL test. "The Longman TOEFL Preparation Course for the iBT" is a thorough program that consists of a textbook, audio to accompany the textbook, and a CD-ROM. The textbook and audio together serve as a basis of a classroom course to prepare for the TOEFL iBT, while the CD-ROM provides authentic practice of iBT-style questions using authentic screens, format, timing, buttons, and clicking sequences of the actual test. According to author Deborah Phillips, "The CD-ROM is a vital component. It is with the CD-ROM that students get authentic practice of the iBT." The Longman program focuses on 48 language skills that are necessary for success on the iBT and reviews these 48 language skills in 4 Complete Tests as well as 16 Mini-Tests (shorter versions of the iBT). The audio program that is used in conjunction with the textbook includes 10 hours of audio material. The program retails from ¥4,200 to ¥5,200 with the CD-ROM and audio components. The new computer-based test began in the US in September, and will be launched in Japan in May, 2006.
