First, Delta's Key gives a lot more explanation than other books, such as the Longman by Deborah Philips and Barron's TOEFL iBT by Pamela Sharpe. For the Reading Section in particular, Delta's Key takes a step-by-step approach that unpacks each question type and gives specific information that helps complete the task at hand. While I do not go through each of these anymore in my classes, I still laud the author for taking the reading section on in such a detailed way.

Delta's Key to the TOEFL iBT®: Seven Practice Tests. I have been studying to take my first Toefl Test and this book has helped me a lot. It is very organized and easy to understand. I could have even studied by myself, although I have preferred to enroll myself at a Toefl preparation course - just to get a teacher's help.

Nancy Gallagher, Patricia Brenner. Although the TOEFL iBT(R) does not have a discrete grammar section, knowledge of English sentence structure is important throughout the test. Content includes noun and verb forms, clauses, agreement, parallel structure, punctuation, and much more. The book may be used in conjunction with other texts in the series or as a stand-alone grammar text for intermediate and advanced students.

I purchased the the delta six practice tests - toefl-IBT, believing the package would come with a cd for the listening and speaking sections - to my surprise, only the book came - what do I do with the rest ????
very poorly recommended for those whom need to use the listening and speaking sections to practice

As a teacher of TOEFL iBT, let me say that this is one of the better books out there. I have not yet seen the updated version from 2011, so this review is on the 2008 version but with the assumption that the 2011 is similar and probably better. Why is Delta's Key a better book?

First, Delta's Key gives a lot more explanation than other books, such as the Longman by Deborah Philips and Barron's TOEFL iBT by Pamela Sharpe. For the Reading Section in particular, Delta's Key takes a step-by-step approach that unpacks each question type and gives specific information that helps complete the task at hand. While I do not go through each of these anymore in my classes, I still laud the author for taking the reading section on in such a detailed way. The advice given is fair and could help the student especially since there are generally good questions that follow. By far, recognizing the question types is one of the most critical components to scoring well on the reading section because each question type has a specific set of instructions, or rules that govern how to answer it. This test is not about reasoning questions out; it is about using methods and doing things in a particular way to find the best answer. Delta's Key goes a long way to helping students do just that, but the book does not take a global view of the various sections. In other words, the book helps with individual questions but does have a larger process of elimination or general order to follow.

One fault that I find with this book, and this might be because it is the older edition, is that some of the reading questions do not quite follow the rules. The TOEFL iBT is based exclusively on rules and its questions are deliberate. To achieve a high score on the reading section, it is important NOT to read the passage; instead you must directly answer the questions, one at a time. However, you still have to find the answer and that means finding key word or phrase in the questions and matching them to the key word or phrase in the passage (there is additional help here, because the question will direct you to the paragraph, highlight the word, phrase, or sentence, or have an arrow pointing to the area in question). Students often make the mistake of searching the entire passage for the answer and that leads to incorrect choices. You only need to read a limited amount of material to find the clues and use the process of elimination to get rid of wrong answers. Many of the sample questions that are given in this book fall outside of the rules. Thus, I teach my students the rules and use only some of the materials from this book.

Moving back to a positive point of this book, I like how the author has arranged some important notes into boxes separate from the rest of the material. In the very beginning of the Listening Section (page 213), there is a description of what a topic is--"the general subject of the conversation or lecture," and is the "most general answer to the question, "What are the speakers talking about?" Gallagher continues by setting up a box that gives other examples of how the TOEFL will ask a so-called topic question.

These include:
What is the subject of the conversation?
What are the students discussing?
What problem does the woman have?
What is the lecture mainly about?
What is the main topic of the talk?

This is exactly the sort of thing that I teach my students--namely, you must be able to treat this test like a machine and not try to reason out any answers. Instead, use the process--identify the question to understand what the test is asking you and then use a specific method to find the best answer. There are no truly correct answers--only the best answers from each choice set. This is true in both the Reading and Listening Sections. Teaching tips like this are really helpful because often students get lost in the question, cannot understand what the question is asking, and then choose answers using notes. While the questions are good and the question examples are good, Gallagher does not talk about the importance of notes nor does she mention the importance of transition and direction words. Taking notes is critical and knowing how to take notes is a skill. Unfortunately, that skill is not taught in this book.

In contrast, though, some of the tips are quite useful. For instance, to help prepare for this and reduce the anxiety that students might have, Gallagher advises that readers think about directed topics and write down some ideas to get an idea of the types of examples and reasons you might be able to use later on the actual test. This is great because the questions often overlap due to the limited topics that the TOEFL covers--in the Listening and Speaking Sections, primarily--and students can prepare a number of items in advance and have experience in organizing thoughts. On page 243, the author asks some basic questions about prior conversations that readers might have recently had (adviser, best friend, librarian, parent, etc.). Questions like "Why did you speak to that person," and "What was the purpose of your conversation" are directly related to how you should prepare. Moreover, advising readers to find a "classmate" and "write a dialogue," will benefit those readers who have the opportunity to work in groups. Even without a partner to practice with, this advice should work for people who go through the steps to follow a rigorous practice regime.

A few other points of note include the presence of an answer key (not found in the Longman text), and some good sample questions for the Speaking and Writing Sections. While the information is basic, the logical order of useful facts such as the scoring templates and rubrics that outline the basis for scoring. Overall, while not a complete text, it does go a long way towards helping students see the variety of TOEFL material and prepare for the test knowing what to expect. I would recommend a separate course of study or at least another interested and dedicated partner to work through this as a team.

One final note, this book has a companion set of audio CDs that are necessary for learning, but must be purchased separately. Although the back of this book does contain the scripts for the audio sections, a student has to pay a considerable amount extra to get the CDs (129 USD). It is important to note that, when purchasing this book, a student must be certain the CDs are included as many books state that they come with them but do not.

Delta's Key to the Next Generation TOEFL Test: Six Practice Tests for the iBT (Audio CDs) is one of the best Toefl materials which can help students to improve the listening skill.
