    Note I that I mainly review the speaking and writing sections of TOEFL books since those are my main areas of expertiseMy overall grade for Cracking the TOEFL iBT B Skills Building Content This book has some fine content when it comes to building the skills students need to take the test It starts with a few “drills” that help students work through the basic skills needed on the test without actually giving them real TOEFL uestions which is a nice approach I find that it needlessly mixes skills related to the integrated and independent writing tasks instead of separating them from each other but that isn’t too much of a problem Some students might find the organization of this section a bit cluttered but at least they have tons to work withThe book later moves on to chapters that show them how to “crack” each of the sections and utilize actual TOEFL uestions to do so This is where the book starts to get bad The problem is accuracy I’ll cover that in the next section Grade BAccuracy Speaking The book has good descriptions of speaking tasks one and two but it fails to account for all possible uestion types In uestion one it ONLY uses “describe a thing” prompts and in uestion two it ONLY uses “paired choice” prompts It totally fails to mention multiple choice giving advice and advantagesdisadvantages uestions That’s a problem and it suggests that the Princeton Review hasn’t been sending writers to actually TAKE the test on a regular basis StupidThe book accurately depicts speaking uestion three and provides a good template but the sample answer given is way too short page 382 It took me about 30 seconds to read That won’t score wellThe book accurately depicts speaking uestion four but has a somewhat strange description stating that the reading is “followed by an academic lecture that will either agree or disagree with the reading” page 383 The lecture is supposed to be illustrative in nature expanding on the content of the reading rather than presenting an argument about it This could seriously mislead studentsThe book has an accurate depiction of uestion five Sadly this uestion will be removed from the test starting August 1 2019The book has an accurate depiction of uestion sixGrade B Accuracy writing This section is mostly accurate The integrated writing uestions are excellent some of the best I’ve seen in a major textbook I give Princeton Review a lot of praise since most publishers mess these up badlyThe independent writing uestions however only use the “agreedisagree” prompt type The book totally ignores multiple choice and paired choice prompts This means of course that the book has none of the “longer” uestion types we have observed since 2018 Again this just feels like The Princeton Review doesn’t care enough to take the test now and againThe book also fails to include the new warning about using memorized examples That is a small detail but had they sent some writers out to take the damn test they would know about itThe book provides fine templates and some good sample essays of both types thoughGrade B The Sample Test Well the book only includes one sample test and it hasn’t been updated since at least 2016 It is probably even older than that but that’s the oldest copy of the book I could find to compare it to Again the integrated writing uestion on the test is great but the independent writing uestion is again an agreedisagree uestionLikewise the independent speaking uestions suffer from the limitations I noted above Speaking uestions 3 and 4 are accurate but the order is mixed up on the test This mistake has been in every edition of this book since at least 2016 That makes me think that Princeton Review doesn’t care Speaking uestions 5 and 6 are accurate though and in the right orderGrade B
